We had a day-long hike up Helvellyn with Sam - he was a brilliant guide, explaining the route and terrain clearly, and checking in with us regularly to see how we were doing. He took us up a great trail and managed our expectations well - my friend and I both went a lot further with Sam than we would have been able to without. In fact, we wouldn’t have been able to do it at all without him! 10/10 and very professional - would recommend wholeheartedly

We used Sam as a guide on a recent Gorge Walking Trip. Sam was excellent in every way, great communication at enquiry stage to booking. He was a wonderful guide very relaxed but had a lovely teaching style, i would highly recommend him.

I took my family to the Lakes in August 2020, we completed Ghyll Scrambling with Sam, it was a fantastic experience and we all felt very safe. Nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely use Lake District Mountaineering again. Highly recommended. Roll on next year.

Really enjoyable afternoon. Sam’s teaching style allows exploration and learning through doing whilst teaching some of the technical elements of traditional climbing in a relaxed and adventurous environment. I would highly recommend.

Sam introduced us to rock climbing and scrambling to prepare for a week in the Cuillins on the Isle of Skye.
Sam is an excellent instructor, with clear explanations, an encouraging style, providing the right amount of support so that we learnt as much as possible, whilst feeling completely safe in an area that was somewhat outside of our comfort zone. Sam is very easy to get on with, and we quickly struck up a good relationship, chatting though the day.
Sam provides all technical equipment, which was clearly of a high quality and well maintained.
We got home at the end of a full day very tired, but felt that we had had a very enjoyable and rewarding day.
Whatever your needs for guiding in the Lake District, we can thoroughly recommend Sam and Lake District Mountaineering.
