It was definitely worthwhile paying for a guided walk, both for Peter's knowing the location & trails very well, and for all his commentary on the natural history and features of the reservation we walked around.

Peter is extremely knowledgeable and took us to areas we would have never found on our own.. He was able to answer all our questions and provide us with a wealth of information. So glad we did this. Experience not to be missed

We went to sunset walk. WE were picked up at exactly 5.30pm. It turned up there were only 2 of us in the group, so we felt like we had a private tour. It was beautiful and well paced, adjusted for our abilities. Thanks Peter
