I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help in getting our trip coordinated. Everyone was very pleased with all aspects. The accommodations were exceptional. Thanks again for your attention to every detail.

Molly, June 23

We had a fantastic time! Luggage transfer was seamless and accommodation was more than comfortable (and accommodating to my dietary restrictions!). We found the trip notes and map were well documented. Not having both of those would have definitely made things more difficult for us, so we greatly appreciated having them. Thanks again for helping coordinate…

Nick, September 22

The communication from you has been superb from day one, and the supporting documentation was very useful and clear.  It felt like a very personal service, especially when you were able to rearrange our taxis around Lewes following my blister incident! The accommodation was of a really good standard as well.

Chris, August 22

As my first self-guided trip I was most impressed and I’ll definitely be doing another. The accommodation was all of good quality and there was always somewhere to get food nearby. Thanks for all your help.

Pete, October 19

A great walk with some excellent accommodation.My general comments are that it was an excellent National Trail with the highlight being the view from the wall overlooking Cuckmere Haven and the view along the Seven Sisters to Beachy Head. It was very well organised by Discovery Walking and I will certainly recommend your services.

Hello Paul, just wanted you to know we have just completed our Eastbourne/Alfriston walk and we loved it.

Martin, September 2019

Thank you for your service last week which I was pleased to see work so efficiently.

Susan, September 2019

A very belated but heartfelt “Thank you” for organising my South Down’s Way trek back in July.  To say that I enjoyed it is an understatement;  the weather, scenery, flowers and people I met along the way were all wonderful, such happy memories, and despite being on my own I was never lonely. With your backup…

Catherine, August 2019

Just to say thank you so much for your part in our adventure!  We had an absolutely brilliant holiday and that was partly due to knowing that we didn’t have to carry heavy backpacks with us this time, and that our bags would be waiting for us every night as if by magic.

Frauke, July 2019

Hiking the “other” part of the South Downs was excellent and – as with the first time – the overall organization with baggage transfers, accomodations and extra information provided by you was extraordinary.

Chris, September 2018

The trip was hard work but huge enjoyment. I had not realised there were so many Ups on the Downs! The highlights were the long periods of quiet walking, the sights and sounds of the countryside (even saw what appeared to be a wild peacock!), the views from the tops of the ridges. And also…

Beryl, September 2018

We are off home this morning so I would like to thank you for the baggage transfer over the last 4 days. We really enjoyed the SD Way and it really helped not to be carrying all the luggage. Many thanks for the efficient and reliable service.

Helene, August 2018

We had a fantastic walking holiday in the South Downs. It had been extremely well organised and planned, allowing us just to focus on the walking.

Holly, July 2018

The trip was wonderful, hot and a bit sunburnt, but wonderful.  I especially liked the lunch recommendation locations; it was great to be able to plan ahead there. I’d like to highlight the Downs View in Upper Beeding, whose website (or exterior) really doesn’t do it justice – the food is exceptional and all the…

Paul, July 2018

The trip was fantastic we had a good break, all the accommodation was very good. In regards to highlights the whole holiday was a highlight in particular the walk from Lewes to Alfriston and I suppose this was because of the 360 degree views and my daughter particularly liked this walk. Anyway thanks again for…
