Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a great time climbing and abseiling in the quarry with Chris, who was very encouraging and patient. He'd set up several climbs for us before we got to the meeting point. Climbing takes place in a disused quarry, a lovely tucked away place.

Wow, what an absolute fantastic experience. Never climbed or abseiled prior to this, however Chis was the ultimate professional who guided us safely and patiently through the process with plenty of laughs along the way. His enthusiasm and passion for climbing was evident and we would highly recommend Better off Adventures to anybody who wants to give it a go. Can't wait for our next climb. Thank you Chris.

Chis is an amazing instructor, I had a session with him going over abseil set ups and how to do it. He was so incredibly knowledgeable and is so reassuring, throughout it he made sure that I was happy with everything and left chance for questions. It was invaluable and I would nightly recommend!

My son (age 10) is scheduled to go on a school adventure residential trip. He is very nervous of most things new so I thought some pre exposure to the more challenging activities in advance would help.
I phoned around asking for climbing and abseiling but had little joy, until I called Chris at better off adventures. he arranged a mixed climbing and abseiling 2 hour session for us and hosted it at Far Peaks Climbing Centre. As soon as we arrived he made us feel relaxed about our lack of skills. He built up my sons confidence in climbing from almost zero to climbing a 40 foot wall and then abseiling down. My son now stands a little taller and that confidence has already shown in other areas of life.
I am very grateful to Chris and will recommend him to anyone. We are about to book another session with Chris as this may become a hobby for us.

Mark, it was a pleasure and I'm so glad you guys enjoyed both sessions. My best wishes go to him on his school trip and I hope he stuns his peers with his confidence. The second session really showed the confidence stuck and even carried himself stronger.

If you are on holiday in the Wells area, do not miss this amazing experience.
Chris was totally fabulous, put us all at ease and made us feel completely safe. He is a natural at explaining things and made even the most terrified in our party, (me) want to do the activities.
Our party consisted of my partner who had climbed before, myself a complete novice who previously cried on a child’s pirate ship ride and two 12 year old boys. We all loved it and we are still buzzing!

What an awesome experience! Better Off Adventures provided an incredible day for us on the photography package, I was apprehensive at first due to being slightly scared of heights but the staff put me at ease and I felt very safe :)

Definitely conquered some fears! We all had a fantastic day and would highly recommend booking with Better Off Adventures!

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon climbing and abseiling with instructors Chris & Matt. We had a range of zero to some experience within our group, and this wasn't an issue. They taught us the basics and encouraged us all the way, so that we each got the most of the experience. The added bonus was the DSLR photos that they took, while we were busy clinging onto the rock face! And they truly care about the environment, removing other people's rubbish from the area at the end of our day. We wish Chris & Matt the best of luck with their business - they know their stuff and are great guys to spend time with. If you're in any doubt, just book it!

A party of 2 couples took part in Chris & Matt's first ever Get Lost adventure activity when we stayed near to Bath. We had absolutely no idea what we were about to do & all we knew the day before was the location we would meet Chris & Matt. We thought they would bundle us blindfolded into a car & would dump us somewhere with a map & we'd have to navigate ourselves back.
Instead they took us on an educational 10 mile walking adventure & along the way gave us challenges. Showed us navigation skills including Map & Compass reading, general map signage test, first aid test. The whole day was really enjoyable & Chris managed to find a fabulous pub to have lunch mid point. Although walking back which was mostly uphill was a challenge in itself :o)
We really couldn't fault both Chris & Matt & i know they learnt quite a bit from us as well (well Russell).
If/when we're down that way again we'd most defo look to do another adventure with Chris & Matt.

We were part of a birthday party that visited Better off Adventures and my son had no previous climbing knowledge at all.
Chris was brilliant with the kids, supporting them and getting the best of their ability, it was relaxed but professional.
My son had the best time and we will definitely visit again 😁

Myself and a friend signed up for a day of abseiling and rock climbing with better off adventures, and both being complete novices with zero experience we weren’t sure what to expect, but from the get go Matt and Chris were super friendly and enthusiastic and gave us a really fun and memorable day.

The abseil was the highlight of the day, gorgeous views from the top and we were both quite nervous but Chris and Matt were really encouraging and we ended up doing the abseil twice as it was so much fun!

Overall we had a really memorable day, felt like we challenged ourselves and achieved something and it was great to be getting outside and trying something new!

Would highly recommend!
