Really amazing and unique hiking experience with Dorian. We took a quite route with some exploration and stunning views. Dorian is very nice to chat with and knowledgeable in scientific facts about the national park and also lovely to share a lot of his hiking skills with me.
Dorian was great. Unfortunately I got lost on route to our meeting place and he was so patient and understanding. The walk was a tad more challenging than I anticipated but Dorian was encouraging and reacted to my pace. He talked about his life, his grandparents and his experiences growing up. The day was the highlight of my trip and I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Really great hiking experience. First time evee on a mountain summit. Dorian has a lot of knowledge in his field of work and very experienced. Dorian made my wife and infeel very comfortable by talking about personal experiences and happy to answer an question.
Amazing experience, definitely not something you want to miss out! I booked the experience for me and my friend, and we both were enjoying every step of the way regardless of the heavy wind. We felt throughout the experience safe and well taken care of. Dorian had so much knowledge about the surrounding that made this experience even better. Definitely recommend it!
We have just moved to Wales to be closer to adventure so we booked the night hike as we love a good a mountain trek. Starting at 6.30pm and ending at 11.30pm, we were not disappointed. The thought that went into the whole trek up was awesome. The route was away from the hordes of tourists. The view of the mountain spectacular and the approach challenging enough to feel like a real achievement by the end. Along the way, Dorian told us stories & legends of old, anecdotes from his times up the mountain, all about the geology and how that formed Wales’ prized coal industry, the constellations in superbly dark night skies, who first inhabited these lands, the Romans, the English and Scots, his intricate knowledge of the mountain itself and just general good banter was awesome. If you’re in the area, this is a great experience with an awesome chap! Even gave us some tips for further adventure in our new life here in Wales.
Dorian’s night time hike was a fantastic and unique experience! We were very lucky with clear skies and so saw a beautiful sunset and had a great star show at the top of Pen Y Fan. Dorian and Marie were very friendly and knowledgeable about the Brecon Beacons and happy to share their insights and passion for the area. Highly recommended!
Dorian is a man in his element, not sharing just his expertise, but his passion for the great outdoors in general, and Wales in particular. An excellent host, facilitator, teacher and inspiration.
Thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would do it again. Both Dorian and Marie were welcoming, friendly and clearly knowledgeable. They cared about what they were doing and showed an appreciation for the environment. You do need proper hiking kit but they were fantastic with some spare bits for those with no idea…!
A really great guided walk with very friendly and knowledgeable hosts who shared lots of information about the area. Despite it being very misty, Dorian made it a worthwhile experience. I’m quite slow going uphill, but this was no problem and we were all well looked after. A great evening, thank you.
Very good evening on the hills. Dorian chose the right walking pace for everyone and adapted as needed. He was great at going off script to answer any of our varied questions. (Even though it was advertised to finish at midnight, we finished at 10.30pm. This was to suit the group and the weather, and was fine for all of us – but be aware of the variable finish time if you need to be picked up by somebody!)
