"Isle of Purbeck - May 2019. Excellent reservation procedure - I just ring you up to book! Very well organized. Leader changed walks to suit our abilities - in other words, missed out a steep hill. Lunch stops were excellent, reserved tables. The hotel was also very good, bedrooms good, menu choice good and the taxi firm used was accommodating, cheerful drivers. I particularly like the cafe/pub lunches, very civilised. Well done! I have already booked another weekend with you. "

"Dovedale - May 2019. I found Secret Hills by looking on different websites for single walking. It offered good value and smaller groups which I liked. The reservation was fairly straightforward. The hotel was very good. Lovely room and view with comfy bed. Food was also very good and organised well. The guided walking was excellent as everyone was considered and adjustments made for those who struggled with distance or pace. Keith was very supportive of all of our requirements. I would book another holiday. "

"Dovedale - May 2019. From the start you made the booking etc easy, found you on the net and took it from there. Keith and Christine (walk guides) were excellent in every way. It was great having a back marker which on trips with other organisations one of the clients would have to volunteer. The Hotel was great. I had a lovely room and all the meals and packed lunches were excellent. I was apprehensive on the first morning but soon was in the swing and we had a lovely walk plus weather was good. The whole experience was wonderful and the group very friendly despite the age differences and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have done many walking holidays over the years all with other walking organisation where all the groups are big so this one was new, and I have to say I preferred a smaller group as you get to know everyone. I will certainly be joining you again and please send my thanks to Keith and Christine who were both excellent in every way and very encouraging throughout. "

What Others Said...

  Dear Alan, I have just returned from my third Secret Hills led trip and I felt that I must email you to let you know how much I enjoyed the walking.  It was lovely to see Trevor and Barbara  again and I thoroughly enjoyed their walk on the Saturday.  Chris and Jeanie led an excellent 'short walk' on Sunday and I would like to thank them (again) for getting me both up and (more importantly) down Sugar Loaf.  I was totally petrified and their support made the descent possible. I am looking forward to my next trip. Giovanna Mills
