“Thank you so much for a wonderful hike on the TMB! Each day was quite an adventure and your knowledge and “fun facts” of the area added to the experience. Your attention to detail was impressive and we couldn’t believe the whole trip went off without a glitch! Thank you for a wonderful trip and we hope you will guide us again in the future!”

“We were met in the Pen – Y – Pass by Matt (Jethro from Mountain Yak’s guide) who had been in constant communication all day (we were on the Three Peak Challenge so timings could & did potentially change). Matts calm demeanour instantly improved the low morale of tired people on their third mountain at 2am in the morning…… Yes Matt met us at 2am! Matt was great he advised on more layers (despite bad weather we had been hot on the previous mountains) made sure everybody had the right amount of food & water and then we left.
Matt made us fill safe and secure and constantly checked on us to ensure we were in good spirits and safe. Well done Mountain Yak.”

“We spent the most amazing hiking and glamping weekend with Jethro in the Brecon Beacons.
We stayed in a massive tent with a double airbed, coffee/tea making facilities and proper barbeque kit provided. Jethro even prepared fairy lights and tea lights for us. It was like staying in a proper hotel room next to a river on a campsite. We truly enjoyed every minute of it.
Jethro is not only a warm-hearted guy with a very good sense of humour but an excellent guide as well! He knows the Brecon Beacons like the back of his hand and even have a great knowledge of its flora and fauna. He looked after us perfectly and ferried us around during the weekend. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who wants to discover the Brecons! I am sure he provides the same outstanding service on his other trips too.”-Mrs Veronika Szonyi

Just wanted to drop you an email to say a big thank you to Charlotte and yourself for giving up your time and supporting my son Alex last Sunday. Your professionalism, knowledge and leadership skills made the walk up and down Snowdon the most enjoyable I’ve experienced although I’ve walked up Snowdon a number of times before.-Mr Pete Staniforth

April 2016

“On the 24th April 120 people walked up Snowdon to mark 12 months since the earthquake in Nepal. Jethro and Charlotte gave their time for free to support the event, leading a small group of walkers. The mountain leader team were fantastic not just keeping everyone safe but also really happy and well informed. It was an absolutely fantastic success not least down to Jethro, Charlotte and the other mountain leaders who were able to support us.”-Miss Sarah Galvin (Phase international)

“Fantastic Holiday, we both enjoyed it so much. Fantastically guided by Jethro and he even booked the weather for us!! A real delight to be with on the hill. Would Recommend.” –Mrs Elaine Haystings

November 2014
“For the time that I have known Jethro, I have been impressed with his enthusiasm, passion and respect for the great outdoors. I would not hesitate to recommend him for guiding individuals or groups in the mountains as I believe he has the appropriate skill-set and competence to deal with situations that may arise in these types of environments, as well as being able to think on his feet. Jethro clearly shows  leadership and character, enjoys sharing his knowledge to those around him, and is certainly willing to go out of his way for others. He’s also a genuinely friendly, approachable guy who seems to get on with most people”
