" Dear Iain & team, Just to say thanks to everyone involved in our caving weekend. It has been a huge achievement for me to do some of the things which I would never have thought myself capable of and I always felt in safe hands. Although I think it proved to me that I'm not a natural caver (!) I am so very pleased to have done as much as I did, and will remember it always. Kind regards,
Rebecca Weller "

who has enjoyed caving with us before asked if we'd arrange for our experienced caving 
director Tony Kendall  ( right ) would take him and his daughter Samantha out in January

Here they are all safe and sound at the end of two days of caving guiding - after successfully

" Dear Iain,

Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for
the brilliant weekend of guiding I spent with you
8th and 9th May.  It was an excellent 50th birthday
surprise from my wife. I had a wonderful time and 
Andy could not have been more patient or encouraging.
He was excellent company and made the weekend.
I enclose some photos to show an unfit 50 year old 
can have a good time caving and abseiling. 
Thanks again to you and your staff."

Dear Iain, Caroline and Tony,

Just a quick line to say many thanks for last weekend.  
All 6 of us agreed what a great weekend of fun it was, 
and you humour, patience and encouragement ( especially
with the abseiling ) was paramount to that.  We had great 
fun on the second day at the watersports centre raft building 
( and sinking) and kayaking.
Cheers, 

                  Lise, Yvette, Sue, Vicky, Steph and Kay.

       in June 2007enjoying abseiling, orienteering a bike trail

It was everything and more of what we thought it
would be ! It really challenged me and Jane and 
we both felt really good about ourselves and our 
achievements !  Please pass on our thanks to your
team - and especially to John, who was the best
guide we could have wished for. We felt very safe 
with him and because of that I was able to extend
myself and challenge fears within me.

Thanks again.  We will certainly be keeping 
an eye on your website.  Best wishes to you all.

come back for some more rock climbing....which we never would
have envisaged before meeting you guys !  We feel we have gained
a lot from our two days with you.

WHY COME TO THE PEAK DISTRICT ?

The accessible Peak District National Park is so easy to get to from
so many parts of the UK and abroad.  It is a stunning venue in which 
you can enjoy a relaxing exclusive day out as a private party with a 
friendly local guide who is fully qualified by National Governing Bodies 
and AALA Licensed.  Our guides live and work in the Peak National Park
and have many years of deep local knowledge to draw upon.

Hiring one of our guides is an ideal experience for yourself if you want to
improve , say, your rock climbing or caving skills and it is a great gift for
someone you may want to impress and delight or surprise with a truly 
unique & memorable present.  It's an experience to be shared too...and 
our prices for guiding have been designed to reflect that.  Right now 
it's exactly the same price for a party of up to six people as it is for 
just one or two !  Ideal for families, small works parties, incentives,  
jollies for groups of friends or for impressing your partner or visiting 
friends or your customers with something that's really unusual, safe & 
professionally organisedand fully insured.  

Spend the whole day doing the event of your choice...or do two different
activities in the same day.  For example combine a morning of caving with
an afternoon of abseiling. Evening sessions are also possible sometimes.

Many people choose to book 2 or more days of guiding with us.
 When booking two or more consecutive days there are fee reductions 
( please see our prices below).



......


           



A day or two of guiding with Rock Lea's staff is a great 40th or 50th birthday surprise or an unusual graduation or anniversary present for those who've always wanted to go rock climbing or abseiling or caving ! It's the same rate whether you come alone of with two or three of your friends - because our overheads for guiding are more or less the same for 1,2,3, or 4 people.
