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.

What Others Said...

Tristan and Ian did a great job. The guides are more like friends, part of the group itself than 'officiators'. However, whenever extra help was needed, they were always there as a reassuring presence. The planning and execution was second to none. The company is very good on detail from pick off to drop off points and everything inbetween Secret Hills is a great “find”. It encourages participants to come back time and time again to meet old friends and make new ones. You could almost say "It’s a family affair"! Well done all of you.
