Michael is an absolutely excellent guy. He provided us a superb weekend, bending over backwards to make our day work for us. We abseiled, gorge walked and canoed all in one day. We had 4 children between 10 and 12 years old and he was brilliant with them all, especially taking care of those that were a little more nervous.... More

Had a fantastic time doing something way outside my normal day. Georgina and I have nothing but praise for the guys and the location. Something everyone should have a go at!

We had an awesome day with Michael, first abseiling then gorge-walking. Michael really knows his stuff and struck the perfect balance of giving coaching where required but also letting us do our own thing as appropriate. Several of our group were inexperienced in this sort of activity, but Michael made sure everybody enjoyed the day and got a lot out... More

We went abseiling and gorge walking with Michael and it was a top day out. He was very laid back - this was our day and he was happy to let us make the plan, so we did the abseiling at 10.30, then had a break for a pub lunch, then gorge walking in the afternoon. The abseiling was a... More

I organised a canoe trip for a group of six, for my partner's birthday. Michael was helpful and straightforward to work with, and sorting out the trip was straightforward. Near the day, the weather turned a little unpredictable. The canoe centre cancelled all bookings from the general public, but because Michael is an experienced instructor, they gave him the option...

Hi Dan, I somehow managed to miss thanking you for this fantastic review. So although it is extremely late, thank you so much, not just for the review but for being such a great group and really working hard together to ensure that you all had a good time despite the weather conditions.

From the start Michael was a great help, helping me to arrange a day of activities and answering the numerous questions that I had along the way! He always came back to me quickly and worked up a full plan for the day. On the day Michael was very chipper and upbeat which was definitely needed given how we were... More
