Insight and expertise
Experienced in leading, usually but not necessarily in the area of the holiday, each has their own individual style and particular talents. All are first aid trained, hold walking leader qualifications commensurate with the grade of holidays they lead and often have good foreign language skills providing you with a deeper insight into local cultures. They are often mines of information on local history and the natural world.
In addition to holding recognised walking, leading and first aid qualifications, our guides have an extraordinary range of specialist interests and expertise, from botany to archaeology and from birding to medieval history. They often have good local language skills too, enabling them to share deeper insights into local cultures and history as you go along. Our guides are as passionate about the great outdoors as you are, and their skills and personalities equip them to bring your trip alive while acting as a friend and mentor to the whole group.
