Everything on time, good communication.
Beautiful views, but can be easily covered by clouds. So mind the weather.
Hiking itself isnt to hard. Good start for a beginner.

Fun Time in South Wales
Mar 2020
Although on my hike up Pen-y-Fan it started to get cloudy and rainy, my group and I still had a fun time. The tour guide was very informative and a great guy. We got to learn about the ways of life for farmers in South Wales and raising sheep. When the clouds departed on our way down we also saw a rainbow. It was a fun time.

Took my sisters on this hike with Andy our guide who was great, really friendly and knowledgeable. The hike was easier than we thought it would be. Took around 45 mins to get to the top and once there wow. Such a beautiful place, green as far as the eye can see, really stunning. I want to do it again.

Jun 2019 • Family
It was a great activity to be doing with my mom, sister and my 14 year old brother. Our tour guide, Andy, was there on time to pick us up, was very knowledgeable and aware about the area and he was very patient with our pace and multiple stops to take pictures. The scenery was amazing. We also took a sip of the clear water stream that was cold and refreshing. It was just great to be out with the nature.
