Dorian was knowledgeable and really personalised the hike for our group. He told great stories and was happy to go at our own pace (even when we kept stopping off to see toads on the way down)! We went at night and the clouds cleared for us at the top, giving us an amazing view of the stars and the lights below. Really recommend
This was a wonderful experience for a mixed age group of 5. Dorian created an extra date for us last minute for which I was very grateful. His communication both before and after the climb was excellent, the accuracy of the excursion description and his directions to the meeting point were first rate and he was punctual, friendly and knowledgable. We felt safe heading into the dark and it was obvious he knew the mountains like the back of his hand, even in the cloud! He told us a few myths and legends, about the flora and fauna, located the stars when they appeared and we were even able to experience some wildlife close up! Highly recommended night climb, expert guide. Thank you!
A truly wonderful experience. We could not have had better weather. I have never been a fast walker, particularly uphill, but with frequent stops to learn about the plants or hear a local story, there were lots of opportunities to catch my breath. Dorian is very knowledgeable and friendly, and the whole group had a thoroughly good time.
Dorian brings a stunning location even more alive with local stories, myths and information about the flora and fauna. He (and his partner, Maria) are very welcoming and I felt well cared for as they made sure we walked at our own pace, making sure we were warm enough etc. I have walked this route before, but I would have never attempted to walk at night. This is what made it so special – sun down on the mountain, star gazing at the peak and then finding our way with head torches – just wonderful! I now feel confident that, if well prepared, I could venture to do this myself. Thank you!
Would highly recommend Dorian’s evening/night walk up Pen y Fan. Despite the great British weather, rain, wind, poor visibility we had a great time. Very friendly. Dorian’s knowledge of the area is clear and his passion for the mountains and the Becons shone through. Thank you for a great evening
This was a unique and special experience. It was a very manageable hike, and Dorian and Maria were great hosts.
Dorian was a wonderful guide and took us on a first class tour of the brecon beacons. He was so easy going and a pleasure to spend the day with.
Dorian is an expert in his field. I feel safe for following him on the mountain. although the weather is not nice, but I had an unique experience that day and will definitely come back soon~~! 🙂
This was an amazing experience that we could not have done alone. With Dorian’s vast knowledge of the routes and deep insights into the history of the beacons, it made the day throughly enjoyable and educational. I would not hesitate to recommend this experience! A day we won’t forget!
Amazing day out with Dorian. A fantastic guide who was always very accommodating and paced the walk so well. He shared lots of great information and took us to some stunning locations that were quiet.
