Our reviews

“A group of us booked the quarrysteering, age range from 9 up to 40. We had a fantastic instructor called Gary who was amazing. He made the experience by encouraging the smaller ones of our group to push themselves further than we expected, everyone had so much fun. It’s a day that won’t be forgotten by the kids and adults!” – Adrian Woollas
