Fantastic experience in the mist and rain but Simon kept us all upbeat and was superb throughout, Even though it wasn't a particularly nice day we did all achieve something very special together and felt like proper hikers due to the weather conditions. Simon is a great guide and I would certainly recommend Simon if you were thinking of getting a guide.

We really enjoyed our time climbing Snowden. Simon was great, really helpful, informative and friendly. He really helped get us to the top, he new useful tips such as the best time to put on extra layers just before the temperature dropped near the top! Thanks Simon :)
