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
“Beautiful country, great hosts, well-marked path. Very, very enjoyable.”
Mr Kirchner, USA
“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
“A beautiful and quiet part of the world. Lovely varied waking along ridges and through woods and valleys.”
Mr Moon, UK
“The hiking was great and the views and countryside really lovely.”
Mr Hargreaves, Canada
“Very beautiful scenery and fantastic views.”
Mrs Wootton, UK
“Great walking country, good mix of strenuous parts and more relaxing walking. All arrangements, travel, accommodation, luggage transfers, worked perfectly. And great weather! 5 great holidays with you, looking forward to the next!”
Dr Roberts, UK
“Well done perfectly organised and information well presented. Most B&BS have been exceptionally friendly and helpful as have the taxi companies moving bags and giving us the odd lift.”
Mr Coryton, UK
“Absolutely, very well planned; almost entirely excellent accommodation. Welcoming hosts, for us, good weather.”
Mr Braddick, UK
