      Brilliant castle tour
      Excellent trip with some great locations visited. Andy was very knowledgeable on the various places visited and open to questions about the history of each of them - recommended

      Excellent day
      Brilliant tour, Andy was very informative, friendly and the tour was paced very well. I really enjoyed Tintern Abbey which Andy explained was at the heart of british tourism and the romantic movement. Would definitely book another tour again. Castell Coch is an absolute gem.

      Great hiking experience for all abilities, must do for visiting the Brecon Beacons
      Excellent guided hike through the historic southern entrance to the Brecon Beacons. Guides Andy and Kate have created a very nice route, bringing hikers to six waterfalls, several scenic vistas, working farmland, ruins, and more. Andy has a comprehensive knowledge of the intertwined history and geography of the area, sharing it along the way along with some good humor. Andy and Kate were very helpful both groups on the tour and ensured that everyone had a great experience. Hikers of all ability levels will benefit from booking this tour.

      Beautiful Wales on Cardiff's doorstep, the opportunity to visit a community and the desire to overcome adversity
      Great start, with easy to find centrally located pick up point, that allows for a great coffee. Our guide Andy was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable on the area's history, environment and sense of community. The tour was very well paced with all the stops, we consider an absolute must, like the memorial to the Aberfan disaster, the winding beautiful access through and to the top of Brecon, the tasty and interesting Penderyn Distillery, the amazing 'Welsh Coal Mining Experience', stunning Castell Coch and lunch in a typical valley's high street. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting South Wales.

      Challenging but worth it!
      Andy is a great leader and very knowledgeable. The route we took was challenging with stunning views. It was nice to get to the summit of Pen Y Fan from a different starting point. I would definitely recommend 👌

      A first time experience for me!
      If you are looking for a route that is not commonly travelled then this is the one to do! More of a social outing for me but one you can definiately trust to guide you on the path (with hopes that the weather is pleasant and you are not sick either!). All in all, a fantastic walk and great support!

      Windy and adventurous walk!
      The weather was against us but that didn’t stop our intrepid leader Andy from showing us a little walked route with lovely views of a stunning watery valley topping out on pen y fan in the clouds! Strenuous but enjoyable! Thanks! :)

      Autumn walk through waterfall country
      Great guided walk. Saw six impressive waterfalls. Trails were easy to walk but a bit wet in places. The guide was helpful in navigating from one valley to the next where there were no signs and giving background information on the history of the area, particularly the silicon mines. Falls were running particularly full at this time of year

      The best hike I ever had!
      Andy pick me up on time at plaza hotel at 8:30am, on 12/09, it was my first time to Cardiff, along the ways to hiking place, he did a great introductory about Wales to me. I learned a lot from what he had shared. Andy is a very friendly guy, it was a great 15km hike and walk and the view and the water falls was spectacular. I will join his walk again in the near future. Strongly recommend to join walk and hike with Andy.

      The day was rainy, but still everything was interesting and nice. Nice views, good “gang” and very good and experienced guide. 15 km to walk was not difficult, but good hiking shoes are recommendable. Value for money!

      Fantastic Experience
      Climbing Mount Snowdon is quite arduous even via the Llanberis route, but it is definitely achievable if you are reasonably fit. Some parts are extremely steep but it eventually evens out. The last bit to the summit is quite steep and has steps and lots of loose stones. It gets quite crowded with some people trying to come up and others down! Everyone is friendly en route and there is a lovely atmosphere. There are plenty of rocks to have a rest on. Sheep are plentiful too. Reaching the summit is absolutely fantastic as the views are stunning. If the weather is ok the views and colours are simply incredible and worth every moment of the climb. The cafe at the top is always crowded but you can buy hot drinks and sandwiches etc. 100% worth doing for the experience and the memorable photo opportunities.

      Bubble gum clouds
      Had the most amazing climb with Tom our guide, really easy to get on with, had a laugh and gave us motivation when the going got a bit tougher. Was filled with lots of facts up and down and he took plenty of pictures, sent later to us. My 2 kids enjoyed it throughly especially reaching the summit. We even dipped our feet in the lake afterwards. Mixed weather going up but cleared once up top. My boy got his wish of tasting clouds( apparently bubble gum candy floss was the conclusion lol). Would so recommend Tom and his colleagues we done whole trip in 5.5 hours, with half hour in cafe.

      Really enjoyed joining a guided hike for my first Snowdon climb. Our guide Tom was very informative and helpful and it was fun to join a friendly group. Would definitely recommend!

      Great views, great company
      The views were amazing. Guide was very knowledgeable and took us off the most popular path for a more spectacular hike than we would have gotten otherwise.

    Andy took us through the array of waterfalls with the first and the last one being the best where you could walk behind the waterfall. There were many other stunning waterfall with one even looking like a mini Niagra falls. We spent more than 6 hours with him and his friendly dog Mali. The lunch break was also a delight which would have normally remained closed for tourists on the day we visited, however since Andy is a regular customer, we were allowed in and could indulge in some delightful food.
    Many Thanks for a memorable day.

    A full day's walk through beautiful scenery. From a waterfall you can walk behind / underneath to others that you can look over from above.

    In parts it is steep, in others it is flat. Makes for a really interesting day. Group sizes are up to 16.

    My main piece of advice? TAKE YOUR CAMERA!

    Happy to recommend.

    I've been wanting to do this walk for some time so decided to sign up on Easter Sunday. I did the walk solo, with the group & I needn't have worried as everyone was so friendly. Andy is very knowledgeable and very patient as I was at times a little slow. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and it's a great day - would advise hiking boots, and layers as can be colder/warmer depending on area. Pack a lunch and bring some cash for an ice cream half way round. Highly recommend and would love to do this again.

    Thank you so much for the lovely review Gracie - it really does help us build a profile and eventually to get shared with more and more people. You'll be welcomed back anytime and do try some other walks too - what about a sunset on Pen y Fan and overnighting somewhere lovely and another walk the following day. Don;t forget the festivals at the end of May and August. Lot's of walking options and the waterfalls are included :) Anyways, thanks again and so glad you had a happy day out with us :)

    Andy is the best tour guide, he is very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was predicted to rain all day but it did not rain as much. Even with some rain Andy made the trip worth it. Great sceneries with beautiful waterfalls.

    I made lots of new friends and had a really enjoyable walk thanks to this tour. Andy is a fun and enthusiastic leader and is very knowledgable about the area. He has a great team and the atmosphere is really positive. I will book on to new walks to improve fitness and keep meeting people in future.

    A great experience with a small group (just three bookings). The pace was a bit fast but doable with enough time to take pictures and have a chat with Andy the tour guide. You see a lot of different sceneries from waterfalls to the forest to meadows. Definitely recommend!

    Impressively led walks in beautiful countryside. Cannot be beaten for a day out with anything from rambling up to more adventurous week long walking holidays in Austria or Iceland.

    A few days last summer and now planning more this year.

    I had a great time walking. Andy was really nice and helpful, and he understood that I was new to long treks, so he let me explore things in my own space. When I said I wasn't going to finish this, he was encouraging and motivated. This waterfall's viewpoint is spectacular, and we visited a variety of trees and mushrooms, ancient walkways, and coal mining. I highly recommend Andy as your tour guide.

    Really beautiful walk through waterfall country in Brecon Beacons National Park. I was visiting Wales solo so a great opportunity for me to get out amongst it in a way I wouldn't have on my own. Group of 10 or so - friendly, relaxed walk. Andy was a great guide. I definitely recommend!
