Deborah, England, December 2018

Just to say we loved our break and are most grateful to you for putting together such a super package. The weather was extremely kind and the walks were thoroughly enjoyed. Lyme is a treasure and we even came away with our own found fossils!...

Thomas, USA, October 2018

I wanted to thank you for organizing a wonderful walk and to let you know how much everyone enjoyed it. You did a terrific job of pacing it for us, and the accommodations were all great. The stunning weather helped too. I can't wait to come back.     ...

Richard, Brazil, May 2018

Knocking on 60 years and bearing more weight than rippling muscles, my Jurassic Coast Walk (from Exmouth to South Haven Point) was a tough challenge (150 km in 10 days). I am pleased to say that I did complete about 95% of the walk. Footscape provided me with the...

Chris, USA, June 2018

We were extremely impressed by all that Footscape did and supplied, from the first (and late in the season) inquiry we sent in, right through the walking itself.  We found the walking challenging and exhilarating. I hope we will use your company again in the...

Sally, England, September 2018

Mike,England,May 2018

John, thanks to you and Debbie (good to meet you briefly in West Bay) for all the arrangements. We are now back in Leeds and London having had a really good week of walking in Dorset with just one afternoon of rain. All luggage transfers went to plan and all...

Sheila, Canada, May 2017

We especially liked the fact that you were able to customize our group's plan to suit our particular preferences.  There was a nice balance between walking and exploring small villages and historic sites.  And we liked our hotel accommodations very much....

Kay, England, June 2017

  We had a wonderful time. All the hotels were very good and all very different. Your instructions for the walks were very easy to follow and accurate and we appreciated the background information that you provided. Thank you once again for organising everything...

Paul Kelly England June 2017

As always it was much enjoyed and we benefitted not only from your deep knowledge of the geography and paths of the area and the impeccable walking notes that guided us so successfully to our destinations, but also your knowledge of the history and folklore of the...
