We had a fantastic afternoon with Mark! We booked 1:2 tuition for my daughter and I on a cloudy but pleasant day. We had a brisk walk to the site, and chatted on the route (about a ten minute walk from the car park). Once we got to the rock, he explained more about what we’d be doing and then went to set up. We took the opportunity to admire the views, which are stunning! We watched the cloud enshroud the tops of the hills. When he returned we had a go at climbing the different routes; Mark gave us enough leeway to figure out routes ourselves and sometimes offer some help from below. At the end of our session he showed us how the ropes where secured to the rock and we talked about a few different types of knots. All too soon it was time to return to the car park. In all, it was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Much fun was had! Thank you, Mark, for a brilliant session!

Smashing! Did Ghyll scrambling with 4 kids, Mark was very patient and reassuring. Everyone said the activity was their holiday highlight and wanted to do it again. Might have to try a more challenging course next time! Many thanks

Mark was an amazing guide. We did nighttime sponsered walk. We met mark at 3am i was worried incase we got this crumpy guide for our first mountain walk. How wrong i was, mark was upbeat and very patient. Loved it. Think my eldest daughter as got the bug. So we maybe back, and I would only use Mark if we where todo it again.

Went up Helvellyn with Mark yesterday. The weather was perfect after the 2 day heat wave which would have been unwalkable...... It was a fantastic walk and Mark was full of information about the area and all the different mountains we could see. I was keen to have a go at Striding Edge and was so delighted that we did it, with his guidance and encouragement proving extremely helpful. We returned via Swirral Edge which was another challenge but made easier when following a guide! I can't comment on the 'budget friendly' question as this was a gift. Would definitely recommend Mark and team as guides in the lake district.

We booked a couple of activities through mountain journeys with Mark has our guide / instructor. Mark is absolutely amazing and made our first family experience doing abseiling and Gorge Scrambling something we will always remember. His patience, knowledge and experience was superb. Highly recommended and we will definitely be back.
