C & D Perkins, MA, USA - 4 days St Ives to Penzance Walking Holiday
"Hello Russ! We are back home with bright photos to spark our wonderful memories of our trip to the UK and especially of our walk in Cornwall. Thanks so much for your organization and attention to the details that made our time there so fun and adventurous (and knowing that you were a phone call allayed all concerns about our tour and stays in Cornwall). If your ears are ringing it’s because we’re singing your praises with every story we tell friends about our travels in Cornwall."
R Gerber, Sursee, Switzerland - 9 days St Ives to Falmouth Walking Holiday
"We are back to Switzerland with lots of wonderful pictures in our hearts and also in our camera and memories of many valuable encounters. We were very lucky with the weather - ideal for walking! We appreciate very much the organisation of Western Discovery - all worked out well. We were glad to have the detailed maps of the areas, the useful descriptions of the daily tours and we enjoyed the different kinds of B&B's (or hotels)."
E Lord, Lund, Sweden - 3 days St Ives to Pendeen (moors) Walking Holiday
"Me and mum are now home from our great holiday in Cornwall and I just wanted to send you a note and say thank you for a great itinerary and trip.

B Gregg, BC, Canada - 6 days St Ives to Lizard Walking Holiday

S Schackers, Germany - 4 days St Ives to Penzance Walking Holiday
"WOW! What a great experience. In Sabine’s, Bernd‘s, Heike’s and my name I’d like to say thank you very much for this outstanding week. Your entire trip organization and support was really nice and gave us the opportunity for a real break from our busy working days. Once we didn’t know how to proceed in a very few situations we always found some friendly and helpful fellows to assist and guide us. The outstanding weather conditions with only a half day of rain (I guess a must for all UK visitors J) and convenient temperatures for walking did theirs to make the tour an unforgettable experience."
C Towsley, Ontario - tour
"Want to let you know how much I appreciate the day you spent showing me monuments and remains of other ancient structures, speculating on what may have been their spiritual meaning, and providing commentary on what is known of the lives of those who built them. I would never have found most of them on my own - and even if I had - would not have appreciated their human and historical significance. Prior to your tour I had little knowledge of the importance of mining in the development of the area, nor of why agriculture in Cornwall has avoided the plague of factory farming. You made the day not only enjoyable, but left me with much richer memories of Western Cornwall than would otherwise have been the case."
K. Kazuma, Tokyo - tour
"Ten days passed after our visit to Cornwall
We had a very nice vacation thanks to your friendly guide about nature and Celtic heritage in the region.
And we understood exactly that you said “Lands end is crazy ”, but it was due to inadequacy of our
preparation. Excepting it, the tour was great for us!!.
I attached a snap of Lanyon Quoit, it was very regrettable that we had no picture with you.
If our friends will visit to western Cornwall, we would like to introduce you to them."
J Cornish, Toronto - tour
"Sadly our holiday is over and we're back in Toronto. We want to thank you for the tour you gave us. Even though there was only the two of us we didn't feel that you stinted at all and we loved your passion and knowledge of all thing Cornish. We were at Avebury about a week later and got to dowse for the St.Michael's Mount leyline which was a nice connection to the morning we spent with you. We fell in love with Cornwall and will definitely be back (probably not during the Olympics summer though)."
K Lambert: 5 days St Ives to Praa Sands
" ..thank you so much for our recent holiday. The whole process for us was very smooth, even though it was a last minute decision on our part, you sorted the holiday with ease. Our itinerary was clear and easy to follow, and your knowledge of the area and the walking was great. Nothing was too much trouble for you. Thank you.
We wish you much success for the rest of the season and we will be back soon. As you say the Coast Path is addictive!"
M Van der Woude, Holand- Self Led Walking Holiday: 9 days St Ives to Gillan
