“Fab from start to finish”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Went on family holiday to Lakes with 5 kids ranging from 8 to 13 so wanted to do something to suit everyone and take us out of our comfort zone. We really couldn't have asked for a better experience. 1 of the kids was really nervous to begin with but not at the end! Craig was fantastic at encouraging everyone. He pushed/coaxed people enough and had alternatives for anyone who really couldn't do something. I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences we have had. The kids and us will talk about it for years to come and we will definitely get back in touch for more family adventures. thanks so much.

“Adventures on 'Mini Moon'!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We had a terrific day Ghyll Scrambling with Craig on our Mini Moon. The organisation was superb and the day was bespoke to our requests. We couldn't have asked for better service and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone with a thirst for adventure and the outdoors!

“Woohoooo!!!”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Just had an EXCELLENT adventure ghyllscrambling with Craig at Coniston. I'm black and blue all over and will probably be as stiff as a board tomorrow, but I've definitely caught the bug!

Don't worry about whether you're fit enough or brave enough - I'm a total deskjockey and under normal circumstances wouldn't even run for a bus. I'm also pretty scared of heights (I have been known to stand at the top of the stairs at a waterpark for over 15 minutes psyching myself up for the slide back down...) and I've just spent the morning gleefully jumping off rocks into rivers. Craig goes through everything, makes sure you're happy, helps you with the hard bits and makes it easy.

TOP TIPS:
-bring a towel and warm clothes for after
-there's a very clean public toilet block at Coniston which is handy for changing in (if you're in Coniston)
- DO IT!!

“An amazing experience with an amazing guide”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Didn't know what to expect with Ghyll scrambling but thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our experience with Craig. Craig is a brilliant guide encouraging you to exceed your own expectations and to push yourself.

Excellent value for money, cheaper than all the other business's with no detrimental effect on the experience, if anything offering far more than the alternative companies available. over 3 hours long going further than the other tours and included abseiling plus the all important wet suit which you don't get with the other companies, and without which we'd have been freezing!

Thanks Craig, we've recommended you multiple times already and will continue doing so. Couldn't have asked for a better experience in the lakes!
