Custom Walk Bookings
At Derbyshire Heritage Walks, we pride ourselves on our flexibility and adaptability. One of the things this means is that we are willing and (usually) able to offer customised walks around many parts of Derbyshire and the Peak District. So, even if you don't see a walk you like on our website, we may still be able to help you via a customised walk.
Over the years, we have provided specially-designed walks for customers from as far away as Australia, and some of those walks have proven so successful that they have formed the basis of some of our regular scheduled walks. Some customers have even combined several customised walk bookings to create a multi-day walking holiday around the Peak District.
Where And When Can You Offer Customised Walks?
We can offer customised walk bookings throughout the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site, the Peak District National Park, and many other areas of Derbyshire. Some of our previous customised walks have included:
With our customised walks, you are guaranteed a truly personalised walking experience around Derbyshire and the Peak District.
How Far Ahead Do We Need To Book?
Due to the time needed to research, plan, trial and possibly adjust any new route, we do need several days notice of any booking. Usually, it takes at least a week to devise and trial a new route. For this reason, we cannot usually accept bookings for a customised walk less than ten days ahead of the date required.
How Much Does A Booking Cost?
The cost of a customised walk booking is a flat fee per group, rather than a set rate per person. The cost of any customised walk booking includes a 20% non-refundable deposit.
How Do we Book A Customised Walk?
To book a customised walk, first e-mail us to request a booking. Where possible, please try to include as much of the following information in your e-mail:
We will usually respond to your e-mail within 24 to 48 hours to confirm if we are able to accept your booking and suggest a basic route. Once you have agreed the basic route plan, we will then begin the more detailed work on the route required to confirm if it is feasible, including doing a trial walk where required. If it is not feasible for any reason, we will contact you to suggest possible modifications to the route for your approval.
Once a route plan has been finalised and all details such as start place and time agreed, we will send you information on how to pay for your booking securely via PayPal. If you are unable to use PayPal, we can arrange alternative payment methods such as by cheque. Once we have received cleared payment for your booking, we will then e-mail your booking confirmation and all other information you require concerning your booking.
