Carolyn, Yorkshire


" I came from north Yorkshire to south Wales to walk Pen y Fan with my walking guide Rob, whom I found via Brecon tourist information centre - and whom I had booked 3 weeks prior.

Rob picked me up from my hotel as I was unsure of the area, and we drove to the start point .Immediately the surroundings were fabulous, and Rob was very informative about the area as soon as we started walking. I had asked to be taken the longest most scenic route, and boy, it was precisely that. Rob directed us up and down the 5 fans, Pen y Fan being the 3rd one, and with each one, I was told about the area, the mountains we could see in the distance, and some not so distant. We took photos along the way, and I found Rob very friendly and amenable as a walking guide and walking companion.

8 hours later - mission complete - hoorah!

I have booked Rob for next march as my guide walking for Plynlimon, as my intention is to walk the Welsh 3 peaks over the course of a year.

I will be walking much more in Wales, and will definitely book Rob to guide me"
