Private Guiding

Hire me (full day or half day) and I’ll tailor a walk specific to your needs and requirements that will showcase the best of what the Peaks can offer.

You can hire me on a one-on-one basis for private guided walks. I can also be hired as a private guide for a small group of up to ~10 adults. The price charged and the group size will be dependent on the length of the walk/day, what will be required of me as guide and the experience that you want to have. A smaller group creates a more personal experience, creating opportunities where I may offer more information about the area/landscape, insights and anecdotes.

I can tailor a walk to your specific needs whether it’s distance, ascent, the type of terrain or all three. I take the hassle out of route planning and navigation so that you can just get on with the day and achieve your goal.   

Types of Private Guiding:

  • Bespoke privately guided walks: Discover some of the Peak District’s beauty spots (see below for details)
  • Trek training: Longer walks that will usually have lots of ascent
  • Charity walks: Achieve your goals and raise lots of money for charity
  • Challenge walks: Set yourself a walking challenge and I’ll help you to achieve it
