Single Centre Guided Holidays


Frequently Asked Questions

What can you tell me about the tour leader?

Each party is led by a walk leader whose aim is to take you into the heart of the countryside and to help you to get the best from the outstandingly beautiful areas you will visit. Footpath Holidays has around twenty walk leaders, all of whom are thoroughly competent and experienced outdoors people. As often as possible our leaders are local or have a special interest in the walk area. Most of our leaders have worked with us for a number of years.

All of our leaders hold a First Aid qualification.

"I have to take a few lines to sing the praise of our leader. I had absolute confidence in him as a guide, and he’s just a real neat person aside from that. There was nothing he wasn’t willing to do for us on and off the trail. There wasn’t a question he couldn’t answer, or get an answer for. He spent time walking and talking with everyone each day, kept us moving, was here, there and everywhere as we went, kept order in our sometimes wayward flock, and had care and concern for everyone’s walking abilities. All this and a sense of humor too! I’d go on any holiday he led out. We were particularly impressed on the last day when, arriving at the end in Boscastle, he sat down on a bench and said “well, I’m done” and the clouds promptly moved in!"
