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.

Had a fabulous day learning from Matt - husband I went to climb outdoors for the first time. He was a great teacher, went through how to safely set up top ropes as well as how to general climbing tips, and helped us explore the climbing opportunities around Wales! Husband and I had a great time, and Matt took photos and kindly uploaded them to Dropbox for us. We would highly recommend : )

Fantastic instruction and knowledge from Matt. Made our 5 year old feel completely at ease and got her (and my wife and I) up all sorts of climbs. Superb local knowledge meant that even though weather conditions were variable we were in a perfect spot to continue climbing despite the weather. We all can’t wait to go again. Would highly recommend. Many thanks Matt

We had a fantastic day with Matt top roping and abseiling in the beautiful Welsh valleys. Matt was a superb instructor and coach, gently encouraging my three daughters (5, 7 and 10) up increasingly challenging climbs and then down a heart stopping abseil.

Matt's enthusiasm for climbing and the great outdoors is infectious. The girls had a wonderful time and are already asking when they can go back.

Thank you so much.

Spent a super morning with Matt exploring family-friendly rocks near Rhossili. Was our first experience of climbing anything other than indoor climbing walls and Matt talked us through technique and equipment and was super encouraging as we started to find our feet. Would highly recommend and if we're back in the area will definitely be getting back in touch to try some more!

My first experience, led to another two! Doesn't that say it all?

I first took part in an introductory course at my local climbing wall, Dynamic Rock, with Matt to teach the basics of climbing with my University climbing club. Wanting to improve my climbing and know-how, I then got involved with a course on Self-Rescue, followed by an Instructor Workshop course not long after on the great Gower, South Wales.

Each and every time I was made feel a part of the activities and caught on to Matt's enthusiastic and dynamic teaching. He is ever patient, encouraging and thorough in his teaching and explanation of things, always willing to explore and discuss.

Matt is a very experienced and qualified instructor who has not yet ceased to amaze me with his knowledge (technical and even historical) of everything climbing/outdoors. I have learned and taken a lot from each day. He certainly creates a safe, comfortable and fun environment to climb and learn in.

Whatever course you chose from the wide range that Outdoor Matters offers, I am sure that you will have a fantastic day. I know that I am looking forward to my next one!
