Great tour overall, excellent challenge. Lovely B&B keepers – you could not ask for nicer places in lovely villages. My husband and I (68yrs and 72yrs) believe we have qualified for our Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award!

KG, Limestone Peak Tour June 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed each days walk and thought we saw some lovely parts of the Peak District

AR, Glacial Gorges September 2011

I fell in love with the Peak district, not only the beauty of the landscape but this was the first time I visited England (and I go often) when I found very friendly and hospitable people. All the walks were great, all the accommodations were excellent and friendly and more importantly very comfortable. Everything was just perfect.

Rosa Gambier, Glacial Gorges tour June 2010

Superb, exactly what we wanted & more, many thanks.

Adam Cottis, Glacial Gorges Tour March 2010

Extremely good value. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, the time at Chatsworth was a nice added extra to the walking. I would recommend it to anyone, especially those not experienced in walking holidays.

All B&B's were clean, comfortable with lovely hosts/esses. A good breakfast set us up for the day! All were easy to find within easy distance of other amenities.

AG, Glacial Gorges October 2009

Just wanted to thank you for a cracking walking weekend, we all had a fantastic time - the walks which you suggested were superb and we were even blessed with blue skies and light to non-existent winds! Thanks also for the maps and additional 'general interest' stuff.

The Millstone was great and the staff really friendly. We even won the quiz night on the Friday night!

All in all a great and memorable weekend. Thanks again and either as a group or as individuals/families we will be in touch again regarding walking /cycling holidays in this beautiful area.

Dave Scarlett � Walking tour Sept 09

We’d definitely go on another tour. The cycle routes and walks went through some lovely landscapes and the B&Bs were great to stay at. Collecting the bikes and luggage went smoothly. Thanks very much.

Phil Ramsay, June 2014

Overall, an excellent tour. Couldn’t fault it and will be recommending it to friends for sure. Thank you!

Ben Sedley, April 2014
