Customer reviews from the Coast to Coast Walk

“The first half of the Coast2Coast holiday was very well organised and planned and we had a fabulous time. Over seven days there was not one hitch and it was very memorable.”
Ms Mikkelsen, UK
“Many thanks for arranging our coast to coast experience, it was truly amazing! We were so lucky with the weather as we only had one afternoon of rain and the rest was wall to wall sunshine so we were able to really appreciate the stunning views we encountered.”
Mrs Suddaby, UK
“I went on a partial reverse Coast to Coast walk with you in May this year with my daughter and son-in-law (part of the time only). We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and your organisation was excellent throughout. We also noted that those you contract speak highly of Contour Holidays.”
Mr Tweed, UK
“We had a great time. Got great views especially in The Lakes and the number of birds and wildflowers just grew and grew. It was excellent.”
Mr Wagstaff, UK
“All six of us had a wonderful time. Another great experience for four of us and a trip that will likely encourage the first time walkers to walk the west half of the C2C.”
Mrs Pitts, USA
“It was an amazing experience. Every day was filled with new sights and delights.”
Ms Davies, Australia
“Experienced the usual excellent service and support by Contours.”
Ms Urban, USA
