Eileen Kelly Group (Walking Alpujarras, October 2016)

Came home to a full mail box and a stack of post, so am only now finding time to thank you for the excellent service provided by you and your team during our recent stay in Lanjaron. I know you were somewhat taken aback when you realised our ages, but you dealt with that admirably and tactfully. You managed to push us beyond what some of us would have thought of as our limit, and in doing so gave us a memorable holiday. In particular I have to mention Jose, who gave most of us our heads, and then slowly, patiently and cheerfully got the slowest of us up Mulhacen. His love for, and knowledge of his country was very apparent, and he was a very interesting and informative guide. Although this was not a particularly arduous climb, it was one which we probably would not have undertaken on our own, and the fact that all 6 of us reached the top was wonderful – a day that we will not forget, and that will be talked about for a long time to come.

I have sung your praises to Jeremy of Camino ways, posted a review on Tripadvisor, and recommended Spanish Highs to all and sundry who enquired about our holiday – hope this might result in some well-deserved extra bookings for you next year.

Hi Kiersten & Richard, just wanted to thank you both for your most wonderful support & so also my enjoyment on the recent Alpujarra walks! You possibly have less idea of your contribution than those of us at the receiving end.. you made it feel easy when it wasn’t, so I would like it not to be understated or estimated, Best of luck in your next adventures & don’t forget Slovakia or Tasmania in your next considerations!

I got there in the end! Mulhacen has been scrubbed from the Nearly Mountaineering Club’s record books! Jose was excellent and got us all to the top as a group. Thanks for the pictures.

Regards and many thanks for being part of my being able to accomplish an ambition and also to have enjoyed an amazing day in the high mountains of the Sierra Nevada.

Thank you so much for this donation and thank you also for looking after our 10 volunteers last week and returning them to us safely. It was a really tough challenge and we know that they all feel very proud of themselves that they were able to complete it.
They have raised a lot of much needed funds for our charity. Thank you so much for helping them and this donation is a really nice touch.
Warm Regards
All at L.I.P.S.
