TESTIMONIALS

My son and I really enjoyed the whole Scafell Pike experience. Matt is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable Mountain Guide and made the day much more rewarding than if we had tackled it on our own. We were lucky with the weather and the scenery is breath-taking. I would recommend him to anyone thinking of tackling this challenge.

Thanks for this Matt and for hosting our day. It would not have been the same without the 3 of you! (In fact, we would probably still be walking around up there!)

Ayling Family

Thank you so much for all your help on Monday. Harry and I had a wonderful time on Scafell Pike, made so much more enjoyable by the guided tour wonderful experience you provided. 

 

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk, learning about the flora and fauna and not for getting the 'off the tourist trail ' experience!

It was worth every penny and I will recommend your company to everyone!

Alex Bramall

Just to say thanks, Wes was a star we did everything we wanted/needed to do. We both felt that we benefited a lot from the day. Great guy as well so easy to get on with and a credit to your company.

Simon and Karen Ashton

I just would like to drop you a note to say that we really enjoyed the 3 Peaks Challenge and that John was a brilliant tour guide. We now also have completed the UK Challenge (which was super challenging) and the 3 Peaks were an excellent preparation for this event.

We will definitely recommend you for next year.

Thank you Matt for a great couple of days of nav training. Feeling more confident than I ever have done with a map & compass in my hand! It was a blast, sorry it's over!

Nicola Milner

Another fantastic trip with Matt up striding edge. One trip I've always wanted to do but wouldn't contemplate without a professional guide. Matt and Lexi always make the walk fun, safe and completely enjoyable. I would recommend Lakeland Mountain Guides to anyone who wants to do a guided walk. Can't wait to sort out more dates next year for some of the big mountains on my list. Just wish there was a guided coast to coast trip. Thanks Matt and of course the real star Lexi.

Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to Matt for his instruction and encouragement on my recent "bimble". I gained confidence and understanding in map skills and compass work, including walking on a bearing, pacing and contour recognition. Matt is an accomplished and experienced leader who has a great sense of professionalism, adventure and fun ! I look forward to future "bimbles"

Absolutely fantastic! Amazing experience, learnt a lot about not only the mountains but about wildlife and parts of the lakes too which was fantastic, a great experience! Already planning another! Xx

Thank you once again for a truly memorable Lakeland adventure. I first met Matt 2 years ago having previously only climbed Catbells as a child. He guided me up Scafell Pike and his infectious passion for the Lake District had me hooked. I have since used Matt for the 24 Peaks Challenge event, navigation courses and most recently the Lakeland 3000's in 24 hours event. Matt and his company are perfect for anyone wanting to get the most out of the Lake District from the total beginner to more experienced walkers wanting to push their boundaries. Thanks Matt for getting me off that sofa and up a mountain.

Tony Williams

Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for sending such wonderful guides to look after us yesterday.'

 'we were all so determined and knowing that Ady was watching over us meant we knew we were in safe hands'

'I cannot express in words how fantastic we think your service is - from the emails we have exchanged, the advice and documents you sent to prepare everyone for the day, to the brilliant and professional guides!!

Thanks so much to both of you for making it a brilliant day.  We are a group of very mixed ability but you guided in a way that meant we could all enjoy it and challenge ourselves if we wanted to.   John's approach with our group was perfect and enabled us to walk at our own pace which was very much appreciated.

Lyn Hines

The navigation training - I can't tell you how useful it was. We took leading the navigation in turns and I could really add value. We did get lost a few times but not nearly as much and even when I was just looking at our map it was great to have an idea of where along a particular ridge or wadi, I thought we were. You were right too, pacing and timings were crucial. Anyway I hope you can see I can't thank you enough. Thanks also for the research re: declination and this awesome pack that has arrived at my home. Lovely to have a certificate for the portfolio.

Daniel Zeloof

Would like to say thank you so much it was a truly an amazing experience not to be repeated lol but I wouldn't have Done it with out your help and encouragement thank you from the bottom of my heart.

On behalf of Orphans In Need, we were delighted to have you and the team with us on the day. Got us safely through some mixed weather and ensured we were managing our time for our return coach. Definitely looking forward to working with you guys in the future!

Thanks Matt, it was a brilliant day. The boys have described today as "amazing" and "awesome". And not forgetting Lexi who was a big hit!!

Simon Farrington

My wife,myself and our 3 daughters climbed to the summit of Scafell Pike last Saturday 4th August under Matt's expert guidance. It was an exhilarating day for us and a day that we will never forget! Matt was first class, his decisions, based on the impending weather were spot on.he was very friendly,great with our daughters and made the hard walk very enjoyable.we had great weather until about a third of the way down then got hailstones and torrential rain lol. Thank-you so much Matt!Here's to Ben Nevis with girls next year!
