We absolutely loved our caving experience with Marcus! Neither of us knew what to expect but had an absolute blast. Marcus was friendly and make us feel safe throughout. He’s great for all abilities - even though Joel was more confident and willing to go further, Marcus made sure we both were having fun. From the start Marcus made it clear how experienced he was (25 years!) and that he knew the caves like the back of his hand, so we knew we were safe. He also let us explore on our own for a bit (safely), and go first, so it felt great being pushed out of our comfort zones like that!

I enquired about Caving with Marcus online and he was more than happy to drive to us from Somerset for a caving experience with myself and 2 others in Brecon beacons. Marcus was absolutely fantastic and we always felt completely at ease and save throughout. He clearly loves what he does and having been caving quite a few times in the past, this was the best experience I had. I thoroughly recommend booking up with Marcus.

Fantastic experience and terrific guide. It was my first time so wasn’t sure what to expect. My biggest worry was heights; I imagined walking along narrow outcrops in the rock face with a chasm of oblivion to my other side (think Jules Verne) with only my questionable balance and footing to spare me from a one-way trip to the cold, black rocks miles below. As it was, there wasn’t anything even remotely close to a height that would have given me pause. My coordination isn’t the best so my biggest concern was just making sure I didn’t hurt myself falling over. Though have to say I was impressed at the grip you get from the wellies! Marcus was extremely reassuring on the phone beforehand and kept an eye on me as we went through. He gave great advice all the way through without being overbearing and at no point did any of us feel unsafe. Can’t wait to go again and try a sump!

Wonderful first caving experience! Marcus is an excellent guide and teacher. Really appreciated his friendliness, confidence, and supportive attitude which allowed us to push ourselves whilst still enjoying. Will definitely be returning for more adventures.

Marcus at Learn to Cave was the perfect guide! Very experienced, he made us feel safe and challenged at the same time, taking us on a specific route to suit us. The caves were incredible!! The trip definitely left us wanting to expire again and again and we couldn’t wish for a better guide for all our future caving adventures! You’ll be glad you picked Learn to Cave! We couldn’t have imagined doing it with anyone else.
