      Hywyn - tour guide
      The weather was not kind for our trek. But, Hywyn was the most amazing tour guide, knowledgeable and experienced. He made sure that I feel safe and encouraged me to the top when my fear of heights got the better of me. His experience meant that when I felt unable to continue he paced the group and made sure everyone had their own good experiences 😍

      Great hike and great guide
      What a great trip. I wanted to climb Crib Goch but I knew we would want a guide and how lucky we were to use Mountina experience. It was a small group of lovely people and teh guide, Simon, was great. He kept the pace balanced so no one got left behind or exhusted. The scrambling was challenging but great fun. We even got lucky and the cafe was open so we could get a drink at the top. Sion also took some great photos so we have some lovely memmories. I would higly recommend.

      Do not hesitate to book excellent service
      A must do if thinking of tackling Snowdon, best the crowds in the day and be back down with a bacon sandwich in your hand before 8:30. Hywyn Our guide was so friendly and welcoming straight off the bat I know we were in for a great day (morning). Hywyn Had expert knowledge of the mountain along with interesting facts along the way really helped break the hike up into nice manageable pieces. He made sure everyone in the group felt comfortable pace wise and at no time made anybody feel pressured to pick up the pace. He personally made an effort to engage with each of the group individually along the way And spent time getting to know his group and answered any questions along the way. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide

      Ticking my bucket list
      I really wanted to walk up Snowdon to see the sunrise . As a solo hiker I didn’t wanna walk at night alone . I booked with mountain experience and it was such a good experience . Our guide Hywyn was so friendly keeping us all laughing and giving us all the history of the mountain . I was quite nervous as not walked a mountain for quite a few years but he kept us all chatting with each other while encouraging us he was lovely . Thank you ( no sunrise that morning ) but felt fabulous and the views coming down when light were just stunning

      Great guide, great fun
      Andy (our guide) was fabulous - he was knowledgable, friendly and professional, made us feel totally safe, and was great company. Despite awful weather, we had an adventure and lots of fun.

      Snowdon via Crib Goch
      Simon was a fantastic guide, looked after extremely well. He was very knowledgeable and ensured our safety as a top priority. I would highly recommend this company if your planning this activity as you will need an experienced guide to assist you.

      If you want to try something different, this is it. You go up in darkness and then discover your surroundings on your descent. Unsurprisingly, the cloud coverage meant there was no view at the summit (we live in the UK, clear sky is a long shot at the best of times). The benefit of MountainXperience was the small group size. Our guide (Anna) was super friendly and mentally it helped to have someone give you a heads up on the different pockets of terrain. Take layers. Consider two pairs of gloves to swap over once one pair gets wet (once you're cold it's hard to warm up). Highly recommend.

      Snowdon sunrise hike
      Our guide Anna kept our pace in check so we hit the summit just before sunrise. Conditions were mixed, with rain, wind and poor visibility at the top, but we did see sun on the way down which was a lovely end. Anna made sure we kept our energy levels up encouraging us to eat regularly and advising on adding layers at the right time. Thankfully she had spare gloves, after discovering mine weren’t waterproof! An enjoyable hike with a great guide.

      Cold but worth it
      We recently booked this trip to watch the sunrise on Saturday 15th June. It was me my friend and my nephew.Our guide was so organised and well prepared and so attentive to everyone. When we got to the summit I did not eat anything and then felt a little light headed and he came over and gave me sweets and explained how to get my energy up. He then gave me his extra fleece and coat to put on top of my clothes as he noticed my temperature drop on the decline. He was so knowledgeable and attentive during the whole trip. I cant remember his name, but our mountain ranger was a life saver. Thank you for the wonderful experience 😊 xx

      Brilliant experience!
      Simon, the guide, was lovely. Got us up to the summit just as the sun rose. The views were spectacular. We were very lucky with the weather. Had good info on what to take and it was better being in a smaller group. Fantastic experience!

      Sunrise hike to snowdon
      The experience was amazing! I booked for me and my daughter for her 18th birthday and we made some precious memories. The views were breathtaking and our guide, Hywynn, was very knowledgeable and motivating and made it the best time for us and the group. We felt safe, considering this is our first ever hiking experience.

    Brilliant experience despite the weather.
    Simon - our guide- was professional, kind and polite, as well as chatty and made us laugh. Good with young children!
    Had some spare clothes such as gloves and waterproof coats, hats, so people in our group felt comfortable. He did look after us.

    If you are not experienced mountaineer and do have young children - I do recommend you to use mauntainxperience, at list you will have and experience and advice from the professional for your future climbing’s.

    I’m glad we went with the group, feeling much confident now and received lots of advices for our future mountain climbing.

    Very motivating experience.

    Thank you Simon!

    Simon was an amazing tour guide.. he answered all of our 10,000 questions and knew which parts were going to be tough providing warning and letting us know when the walk would be getting easier. It was a wet and windy day with little visibility from the top but it was still very enjoyable and worth it in every way!

    We had the best time on our hike to the summit of Snowdon with Simon. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t of had the confidence to go all the way to the top, Simons experience and positivity was really encouraging and he made the experience really enjoyable. I’d recommend Simon as your guide whether you are an experienced hiker or not, as he has really good knowledge of the mountain and different routes to take. A fantastic day!

    After over 1.5 years of planning and rescheduling with Simon for our Climb to Snowdon, in July 24 we finally made it to take on the challenge.
    Living in the UK, you always have to look ahead to see how the forecast is panning out and it wasn't looking too bad but with some rain in the morning.
    Our guide Tom kept us informed with great facts about Snowdon, its geological history, floral facts and safety tips during the different checkpoints and kept us moving as we ascended to the summit.
    As we got closer to the top, the weather turned and heavier rain and stronger winds made us question if we got enough layers on. Fear not as Tom was able to share some of his spare clothes as he has done the climb plenty of times and had come prepared.
    After a quick wet picture at the top, respite was sought at the cafe with a warm drink and lunch to recharge batteries before ploughing downwards. Coming down Snowdon as most people were coming up, we were leaving the rain and fog behind and the sun started to grace us with his presence which made it a pleasant finish to a great 7.5h spent with a great group.
    Doing Snowdon for the first time, having Tom as a guide was a definite great choice and one that we would make again.

    We had a great hike with Simon and the group to the summit. Simon's knowledge of the mountain was invaluable, helping us to avoid the crowds at a busy time. Simon was attentive, encouraging and welcoming and I would highly recommend walking with him for an enjoyable mountain experience.

    Myself and my 8 year old son managed to get to the top of Snowden with Simon. We would never have managed to reach the summit without him - his encouragement and knowledge was invaluable and gave us the confidence to keep going when we may have given up!! I booked the trip to give myself to safety when taking my son and I am so glad I did. Simon was a fantastic guide and made this a truly memorable experience for us both. The weather was awful but we felt safe with Simon and I was confident that no harm would come to myself and more importantly my son which ensured we kept going and I’m
    so glad we did. 10/10 from me and 100/10 from my son!!! Highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to climb snowden of any ability but especially to give you that added sense of security and push to get to the top!

    Went with 2 friends and 4 other hikers with Andy who was a fantastic guide, very informative and experienced, did a great job at keeping as safe and aware of potential conditions, knows the history of the landscape too always good to know, but also let us go at our own pace rather than being pressured to speed up. Views were spectacular going up, we went when there was about 2ft of snow absolutely loved it!! Took about 3.5 hours to hike up then back down another 3.5 hours. Credit to Andy for being a really good guide 👏 5/5

    We met at 8am and from the start Hywyn was fantastic
    He paced us, kept us going with knowledge of the area and stories.
    I doubt I’d have got to the top without him.
    He was an interesting guy and genuinely interested in people.
    I’d definitely use this company and guide again.
