Meet The Team
We have a dedicated group of walk leaders and administration staff who work together as a team to ensure your holiday is the best we can give you. We are constantly seeking to improve our walking product and add new areas of walking interest to you. We also constantly review our hotel facilities and underpinning services that make the walking programmes work.
Take a look - but pictures alone cannot tell you about our individual skills and personalities - you only get that on each holiday.
