Customer reviews from the Offa's Dyke Path

“Well, you guys again earn a big complement for having organised this nice holiday for us... The route was quite tough, but we did well and enjoyed the landscape.”
Mr Pennekamp, Netherlands
“Offa’s Dyke Path is an amazing walk, with stunning scenery. The walk was challenging in parts, but well worth the effort.”
Mr Wilson, UK
“Fantastic trip; would recommend the Offa’s Dyke Path. I always recommend your holidays when asked for suggestions.”
Mr Fotheringham, Canada
“Compliments to Contours staff for helping out 2 weeks in advance to change our booking and for answering patiently all questions I had. Everything was very complete, the holiday pack, the reservations, the luggage transport, the e-mail contact. Very good service, lots of choice in walking holidays.”
Mrs Jans, Netherlands
“We all enjoyed the walk very much. An excellent variety of paths and views. It was all good.”
Mr Newton, UK
“Everything went well - even the weather cooperated.”
Mr Catton, USA
“Had a great time. Accommodation and transfers first class. The walk itself was superb. Walking on the Dyke was incredible. It’s still there! Totally unspoilt area of the UK and the friendliest people.”
Mr Kirkup, UK
“Just completed the Offa’s Dyke Path and overall I had an excellent experience. The path was challenging – and at some places, not well marked, but the scenery and the people we met along the way were all excellent. I always enjoy these holidays – much more so than sitting on a cruise ship.”
Mr Ossim, USA
“We thoroughly enjoyed the walking holiday. We have been on a number of walking holidays in UK, Europe and South Africa. Although South Africa was a unique experience the southern half of Offa's Dyke was overall the best. We were extremely lucky to have the first part of July, when the weather was amazing. That definitely made the experience as good as it could possibly be. Contours choice of overnight accommodation was excellent along with very detailed information about each stop and the organisation of luggage transfers.”
Mrs Brady, UK
