"Gower’s Coast - August 2021 Excellent as always. Simon and Nina were fab. Good pace not slow. I absolutely loved the Gower, and the walks were a great mix of different terrain, even if inland we still got great views of the coast-fabulous, highly recommended. Hotel rooms very nice, spacious, food very good, very generous portions. The staff were all really friendly. "

"Nicky Price, Northern Lakes – July 2021. I LOVED the guided walking experience! Alvina was just brilliant, such a great walking leader. She was completely aware of our abilities at all times, aware of safety etc but also fun and knew so much about the local area. She adapted the walks according to the heat and our abilities/levels of fatigue etc. She was just brilliant at what she does. It was great to meet the other leaders too, Bridget and Gill were great. I really enjoyed chatting to them along the way. They all made it clear that no-one needed to rush, they were happy to go at a slower pace if necessary and put everyone at their ease. The hotel was great. I wished there was air con in the room as it was SO hot that week - but the weather that week was exceptional for the Lake District. Food was great at the hotel, room was comfortable, nice to have drinks outside in the evening. The staff were great, really friendly and helpful. Everything went smoothly, it was all very straight forward and I had a BRILLIANT holiday! I am already looking at booking another holiday…thank you for an amazing few days, I thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a great group of people, everyone got along so well. The weather was AMAZING and we enjoyed a few dips in the Lakes which really made the holiday extra special!"

What Others Said...

Northern Lakes - October 2018. A beautiful setting. It was lovely to feel secure in the knowledge that we were taking the best route and Jill had a superb knowledge of the area as well as an obvious love for it. The holiday was extremely well put together, accommodation, timing (autumn colours), knowledgeable guides. You even did a good job with the weather! I would have no hesitation in booking another holiday or advising others to do so. The group seemed to gel very well and I am sure that this was to a large part down to the people skills of Jill and Joe.
