Can I take this opportunity to say what a smashing couple of blokes Owen and Roger were over the weekend. The kids took to them instantly and soaked up the advice that was freely given. We brummies’ are well known in certain circles for not accepting strangers freely. They interacted brilliantly and at just the right levels. Firm but fair at all times.
I had the pleasure of spending 4 days on the hills with Owen. They say you can’t teach an old dogs new tricks well Owen disproved that theory by teaching me several. Jo and Bonnie had the pleasure of Roger and sang his praises nightly at the staff meeting. Thanks very much for providing 2 instructors that were both experienced and down to earth. A good choice.

I completed my Gold D of E expedition with Expeditions Wales and had a fantastic time! Aled was a great teacher and I learnt so many new skills. I enjoyed my practice expedition with Expeditions Wales so much that I went back for my final. I would recommend Expeditions Wales to anyone.

"Aled and his team were excellent. He provided all the necessary information and DofE paperwork that was required for me to undertake and record my Gold Expedition. Much, much easier dealing with someone who knows exactly what is required and the standard to which it must be carried out. Happy for you to pass this on him"
