Customer reviews from the Offa's Dyke Path

“We really enjoyed the walk with very different but interesting accommodation. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful. Comfortable beds and good breakfast every day. Thank you for your organisation.”
Mr Brown, UK
“Offa's Dyke is spectacular and I thoroughly recommend the Southern section.”
Ms Tasnady, UK
“Very good walk, distances and accommodation good…”
Mr Sharpe, UK
“Fantastic walk, beautiful countryside and we were very lucky with the weather. Nearly everything was perfect such as organisation and choice of accommodation.”
Mr Edwards, UK
“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
“Wonderful to do a day on day long-distance walk again after a break of a few years. Booking with Contours gave us that extra support we needed to feel confident once again of our ability. From start to finish through from our initial enquiry, booking, pre-holiday queries and the actual walking we were really comfortable working with Contours. Relaxed yet very competent accommodating approach works for us. Recommended Contours to everyone!”
Mrs Roberts, UK
“Fantastic trip! Very well organised; good value for many; simple booking process; GPX file very helpful.”
Dr Margolis, Australia
“A truly amazing opportunity.”
Mr Smoothy, Australia
