Jamie is a brilliant guide; he was knowledgeable, warm and friendly. I can talk for the whole of England, given the chance, and he matched my energy from start to finish. Never would I have ventured out on a walk on my own, so far into and up the langdale Valley and surrounding areas. This walking tour was an absolutely perfect. I loved every minute and Jamie was fantastically intuitive; speeding up a little when I was energised and slowing right down when I needed to or stop completely when I was mesmerised by the views to allow me to soak it all in...actually going by foot into nature in this way, is simply indescribable .... it's pure magic. It was priceless!!!

Thank you so much Jamie!!! Jamie is a brilliant guide; he was knowledgeable, warm and friendly. I can talk for the whole of England, given the chance, and he matched my energy from start to finish. Never in a million years would I have ventured out on a walk so far into and up the langdale Valley and surrounding areas. This walking tour was an absolute God-send. I loved every minute and Jamie was fantastically intuitive; speeding up a little when I was energised and slowing right down when I needed to or stop completely when I was mesmerised by the views to allow me to soak it all in. Great chat but also total silence at the right points on the hike. I am a frequent traveller to the lakes and have taken literally all the tours going, but actually going by foot into this netherworldly paradise is simply indescribable .... it's the stuff of magic. I am hopeful that Jamie will put together other walks and tours because I for 1 would join him in a heart beat. Totally beyond value for money, it was priceless!!!

Me and my granddaughter, who is 11 years of age went on this walk in spite of the very wet and windy weather conditions. Our tour tour guide Jamie was very friendly and knowledgeable and introduced us to many wonderful sites. Our favourites, were the Waterfalls, the slate mine and the 400 year old bridge. We would highly recommend this to any age group and Jamie was very easy going and made us very comfortable resulting in a brilliant day. Thank you so much. We will certainly be looking at doing another one in the Summer.
