Personal Walking Guides
By booking a Personal Walking Guide, you can choose where and when you walk, rather than being limited by our published walk schedule. For some walks, in addition to choosing the walk and the date, you can also pick your own start time, and even choose from a range of available start points.
All of our scheduled walks are also available via a Personal Walking Guide on days other than those on which they are already scheduled, but you also get access to a number of exclusive walks not available via our usual schedule.
For a small additional charge, we can also create a customised walk especially for you, allowing you to visit areas or specific places we do not normally include in our walks.
What Walks Are Available?
You can make a Personal Walking Guide booking on a date of your own choosing for any of our normal scheduled walks, as listed here. Remember - You don't have to stick to the scheduled dates, and can request a booking on any date you choose as long as we have a guide available for that date.
You can also book any of the exclusive walks that are only available by booking a Personal Walking Guide, details of which can be found here.
Details of how to book a customised walk can be found here.
When Are Personal Walking Guides Available?
Personal walking guides may be booked at any time of year except for our Christmas break period, other staff holidays, or while we are busy with other committments. However, some walks do not take place from December to late March due to the possibilty of bad weather, insufficient light, or other factors beyond our control.
Full details of guide availability can be found on the individual walk pages, and also in the "Latest News" section at the bottom of this page.
How Much Does A Booking Cost?
The cost of a Personal Walking Guide booking is a flat fee per group, rather than a set rate per person, and varies from walk to walk. The exact cost of a Personal Walking Guide booking for a particular walk is listed on the individual walk pages. The cost of any Personal Walking Guide booking includes a non-refundable deposit, which is typically between 15% and 25% of the full cost of the walk.
