Client Testimonials

My son recently got back from his Duke of Edinburgh Gold trip and had nothing but positive things to say about it! The practice and qualifying journeys were very well planned and fun for the whole group. Food was delicious, learning experiences were plentiful and nature was beautiful, just as expected.

His guide, Peter, made the trip run smoothly through his good organization and positive leadership. Its a trip my son thoroughly enjoyed and is something I’d recommend to other Duke of Ed participants.

Our boys (9 of them) returned today from their Gold Duke of Edinburgh adventure journey – they can’t stop talking about the incredible time they had. Thank you so much, Blake, for making this trip a life long memory for them. It has been such a tremendous experience for them.

They have learnt so much – for some of them it was the first time canoeing and portaging. They enjoyed the food, the outdoors, camping and all the new things you taught them Blake – thank you for your patience and giving them such an amazing time – they said you made the trip for them!
