REVIEWS

Excellent service- Lauren listened to exactly what I was looking for and made some very helpful suggestions. The service could not have been better

18 May 2024

So far the service and help we’ve received from Headwaters has been good.
You could call us nervous travellers and we have been pleasantly surprised by their assistance and attention to detail.
Still early day as we have booked well in advance. The staff have always been informative helpful and very pleasant to deal with.

Stephen Slinger, 1 Dec 2023

I recently booked a guided walking holiday with Headwater. The service was excellent. I received immediate replies to my emails asking various questions. Helen Hodson could not have been more helpful. And I got an early booking discount!

A few years ago we took a self guided walking holiday in Sicily, which was excellent.
