    The guide Jordan – very knowledgeable, extremely helpful, kind and polite – couldn’t have asked for better. Amazing. When we come to Cumbria again and need a guide, I will ask for him…this was a fantastic challenge and so chuffed to have finished.

    Scafell Pike: Good friendly guides and on time too.

    Stu was a great guide and excellent company.

    Nathan, our guide, was knowledgeable and helpful all through the day, chatty and encouraging. The weather was not the greatest and he kept his eye on forecasts for safety and enjoyment reasons…slightly altering the day’s route as a consequence. He also helped us up and down some difficult sections that I would not have done if I was walking alone as normal! A good fun day out despite the weather. The highlight was the rock scrambling! Some stories to tell the grandchildren.

    Lots of lovely walks, with a great choice for everyone. Our course instructor, Dave was an experienced, cheerful and friendly guide. Let the group walk with confidence and excellent people skills. I wish I discovered Ambleside Adventures earlier!

    Stu was a very knowledgeable and engaging guide. It was wonderful in the afternoon when the weather lifted. A decently challenging walk.

    Nathan was a fantastic guide. I was with some friends who didn’t want to do as much hiking as me and I would definitely not have attempted Helvellyn via the top of Striding Edge on my own or even if I took friends. The walk was really interesting, even if we couldn’t see anything due to cloud at the top. It was also nice meeting new people on the walk. Nathan knew his stuff and I felt really safe up on top of the edge in the cloud and definitely encouraged me to do more than I would have done. Good chat about adventure stuff too!

    Beautiful walk and views. Weather was great too! The instructor Jordan needs a medal! Once again he had different abilities that he dealt with calmly and gave alternative options. Probably like herding sheep but he did it with a smile 🙂

    Friendly and professional booking experience and guide. The instructor Nathan went at my pace and was good company.

    Jordan was very helpful and we were really pleased to get to the top of Helvellyn, something I would have struggled and probably given up on without him. He was very knowledgeable, patient and supportive.

    A great day

    Weather was truly awful but despite that the day was as good as it could be thanks to Jordan. He was excellent, very patient and kind, completely trusted him.

    Everything was perfect. Dave was very friendly, knowledgeable and patient. Thank you Dave for a great day. Loved having the option hiking from Langdale, what a lovely route. We were so lucky to have beautiful weather, however would still have been a fantastic day without the sunshine and blue skies.

    Stu was patient and gave careful guidance at tricky moments so that I always felt safe. I was taken slightly out of my comfort zone and able to deal with it. Without Stu it would never have happened.
