Just wanted to let you know I have had MANY emails this morning telling me how fantastic yesterday was, and how wonderfully organised and supported.
Please do pass on this message of thanks to the rest of the team, and I will see you in a couple of weeks!

Ellie,London to Brighton Bike Challenge
I just wanted to follow up on conversations over the past couple of days and thank both the leaders for all they did while we were in Italy. The trip was great and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you. You’ll be seeing me again!
I’d just like to say a MASSIVE thank you to you both for all of your support to Oliver Wyman during the Three Peaks and London 2 Paris challenge.
Everyone had a great time and praised the Adventure Café teams for your support. So just to reiterate - thank you to you both and all of the Adventure Café team for making this so successful!
Will Il,Cycle London To Paris 24hr Express
Dear Adventure Café team - Many thanks for putting together a terrific cycling event for us this past weekend. I thought it all worked out incredibly well, with slick organisation from start to finish - quite an achievement when herding 150 riders of varying ability over 260kms. So far as I know, everyone made it without any major incidents. I was also impressed with your ability to arrange perfect weather in France, even though it was apparently quite grim in the UK on Saturday!
James (Morgan Stanley),Cycle London To Paris 24hr Express
It was an absolutely amazing experience, climbing three fantastic locations surrounding by a lovely group of people. I couldn't have asked for more!
MIND 3 Peaks participant,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
I was very nervous about doing the 3 peaks within 24 hours but the team were fantastic and everyone displayed positive energy (even at 3am). I can honestly say I will be doing more trekking after this, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to doing another challenge with Adventure Café.
Happy 3 Peaks Challenger,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
Thanks again for the great job you folks did with the organisation and support of another fab event for PRA
Simon,Cycle London to Amsterdam Ride
Just a quick thanks for an amazing cycling trip. Paul and I had a great time, we really felt that the organisation and running of the event was escellent.
We both gave it a 10/10…
Geoff,Mallorca Round the Island Challenge
Wanted to pop you and thank you for the stellar few days. You and your team did a phenomenal job and I’m glad we went with you. I know I’ve come back and given a glowing review of you to the decision makers here when it comes to next year’s ride. Thanks again.
Richard,Mallorca Round the Island Challenge
Having completed the Way of the Roses event last weekend by supporting amputee friends in Limb Power, please pass on a huge thank you to Alan, Neil and Olly. The success of the event must be attributed to all three of them whose attention to detail throughout the whole trip was constant, they worked completely as a team and knew when to offer encouragement and support with-out being overbearing or patronising.
Judy,Way of the Roses
A huge thank you to you and your team for a fabulously supported event. I hope you had some time to chill out in Mallorca yesterday! Look forward to meeting up in August to kick start 2017!
Kate,Mallorca Round the Island Challenge
I have just participated in the Jeff Stelling Marathon walk, day 10 and I just had to take the time to email you and let you know just how brilliant your company was in managing the walk. I run long distance races and am used to good marshalling but honestly your guys were amazing. It’s no easy task stopping London traffic at the best of times never mind stopping it to allow some 100 people to cross but your guys somehow managed it brilliantly.
Honestly it was brilliant, I was extremely impressed and just wanted to say thanks and please do pass on my comments to others in your organisation because those involved were superb
James,Marathon Walking Challenge
You guys did a truly awesome job today getting us all safely around and what top guys you were too thanks so much

Karoline - Jeff Stellings Men United March,Marathon Walking Challenge
Just wanted to pass on our warmest thanks for one of the most incredible trips we’ve ever made.
It tested us both physically and mentally and I sincerely believe we all came back to UK with a new mindset……”Put your mind to it and it becomes possible”
The service and organisation provided by yourself and Yousef was near faultless…. Just those damn cold beers at the end would have been a god send… ;-)
I think the experience was what it was due to the time you invested with us prior to the event plus the daily evening research you did for us. Additionally adapting the plan where required to accommodate our mixed ability group. It was nice to have the reassurance that we had a strong and competent support team throughout the adventure.
Many thanks and regards
Sanjay,Cycle to the Sahara
The Somerset Screamer. This was my first time taking part in a sportive, a low key event with the potential to be big. The route was amazing, taking in villages, Cheddar Gorge,Wells and Glastonbury Tor. The route was very well signed with clear signs of Gtc colours so not to be confused with any others. The feed stops were brilliant and the support from the team at Grand Tour Cycling was 100%. All in all a great event
A massive thanks to the team
Rob G,South Somerset Screamer Sportive
Grant Thornton have worked with Adventure Cafe for the past decade when engaging in high ‘octane’ fundraising events; such as the Three Peaks climbs and more recently an abseil off the Grant Thornton Euston building. We have a long association with the Adventure Cafe team who are brilliant at providing expert guidance and, importantly, safety and risk analysis for these activities.
Over the years I have ridden on a number of organised cycling tours and this one certainly comes out top of the pile as echoed by the various emails received from the group.
Whilst I had little interface with your other folk who were working away in the background, I think I can safely say on behalf of the group that our thanks should also be passed on to them as unsung heroes.
A good, all round top team indeed.
Phill C,Mallorca Round the Island Challenge
I would like to say a massive thank you to all at Adventure Café for making the London to Paris cycle absolutely fantastic, the support from start to finish was excellent. As part of the open group on the trip on the 23rd July 2014, I’m sure I speak for all of us when I say the trip was thoroughly enjoyed by one and all. Well done guys, you do a brilliant job. Martin, our team leader was particularly excellent at being able to give everyone a bit of what they needed, to not only get everyone there but to allow all abilities to work together as one team. Whether fast or slower, everyone appeared to not only meet their expectations but to go beyond.
Carolyn,Cycle London To Paris - 4 Day
A big thank you to Adventure Cafe for the professional set up and effort to lead the 45 cyclists from Prague to Belgrade and helping ALIVE Charity Foundation make their annual fund - raising cycling challenge for Cancer a spectacular success.
Elton,Prague to Munich Bike Challenge
I did the London to Paris ride in July 2014. Richard and the Adventure Cafe guys made it a great experience.
Ned,Cycle London To Paris TdF - 4 Day
We just wanted to say a BIG thank you to you all for our 3 Peaks Challenge weekend, Derek was so excellent and we are going to send him an email to say thank you separately! Should any other team building or fundraising things come up in the future TNS will not hesitate in contacting Adventure Café. 160816
Lucy,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
Can't thank you enough for a great trip through the Knoydart. Lots of fun, gruelling at times and an amazing piece of the country explored. Thanks again from all the guys
A huge thank you to you, Sarah-Jane and Alex for a great day today! Will and I really enjoyed ourselves and you all made it relaxed and fun – looking for our next challenge already!
Mary,Avon Mega Abseil Challenge
I am just writing on behalf of all of the girls on our 'Dartmoor Divas' team to thank Adventure Cafe for organising a great event for us. It went very smoothly, we had great weather and a wonderful time.
A special thank-you for giving us Rob as a guide... I think we aged the poor chap by several years but he remained calm, stoic and determined to allow us to enjoy our adventure our way whilst keeping us safe. He is a lovely guy and we all enjoyed having him on the team.
Donna,Ten Tors Dartmoor Challenge
Thanks once again for an enjoyable challenge last weekend. I don’t think I would have completed the event without the encouragement of Damon and with him practically pulling me up the final peak. Knowing how tough these challenges can be will certainly help when I am trying to persuade our supporters to take part and also to stress how important it is to be prepared.
I thought the event was very well organized and have already spoken to our events fundraiser about adding more of these type of events to our calendar.
Christine,Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge
Thank you for such a fantastic weekend, I don't think I have ever enjoyed myself so much. It was lovely see you all, can't wait to see you all again at the next Khipu bash. Thankyou Adventure Cafe!
Hannah,Wye Paddle Challenge
Just wanted to say what a brilliant job you did this weekend - all the squelchy participants were singing your praises! So, many thanks for making it such a success against all the odds!
Robin,Ten Tors Dartmoor Challenge
As usual it was a pleasure to take part in an adventure café event, which was well organised, professional, and provided an opportunity to bring together a group of like minded individuals who enjoy a challenge. Having the support car there with spares, and staff on board with technical expertise only enhanced the view of your company where all of the challengers safety is paramount with every event held. Also having these professionals alongside on bikes offering support and motivation made a huge difference, in some cases the difference between completing the challenge and not!!!
Adam, Luke & Andy,Century Challenge Ride
Just a short note to say thank you for the Tuscany bike ride challenge that you setup and ran for Rainbow Trust. The event was great fun, well run, well managed and definitely worth repeating. What made it especially good was your attitude and professionalism. Thank you.
Mark,Tuscan Biking Challenge
Just wanted to say thanks to the Adventure Cafe team for organising such a great Welsh 3000s weekend. I think everyone on the trip had an amazing time. Iain was an amazing guide and it was really nice of him to not only keep us all safe and on the right track, but also teach us about the area and how to improve our walking/scrambling/climbing.
Rob,Welsh 3000s Challenge
To The Adventure Cafe Team
I have just been on a 3 peak weekend with your company and would like to say that the whole event was fab from start to finish. Very well organised with great guides. A special big thanks to Nick(our super duper mountain guide) who jogged the final part of Snowdon with me and even carried my pack and sticks on the final 600m to enable me to reach my goal and fullfil a dream. Thanks again.
Trudi,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
Just wanted to thank Iain and Shaun for all their hard work, constant support and professionalism whilst I struggled to complete the Three Peaks Challenge this weekend for St.Clare Hospice.
I am so grateful that I was able to complete the challenge and would like to thank both of them. Their management of the group was excellent and they definitely chose the right people for each of the groups.
It was a great experience which I will not be repeating but am so glad I did!!
Caroline,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
We did the "English 3000's" for Meningitis Trust at the weekend. Just wanted to say a thank you to your guys that ran the event. All top drawer.
A special thanks to Stephen-an inspirational leader.
Mark & Helen,English 3000s Challenge
I'd just like to thank all of you involved in arranging our very successful Three Peaks Challenge trip last weekend.
It was really fantastic to make it under 24 hours..thank you so much to Richard for getting us up all 3 peaks with such patience and good humour..I would not have made it without his encouragement!!
It was very hard but it was an awesome experience and Adventure Cafe made it so. I will definitely be back for another challenge in the future!
Julie,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
The weekend was a great success - thank you all very much. Steve the guide was great and once the pain goes away I'm sure we will all look back with a smile not a grimace!
Sharon,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
Many thanks for helping make this challenge a truly unforgettable and amazing experience and I am sure I will be contacting you in the future for my next challenge!
Karin,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
Never thought I would sit here and admit to miss the pains and aches from our Picos Mountain trip! But I really do! PS. What will be our next adventure??!!
Helle,Picos Mountain Adventure
Thanks for a great 3 Peaks Challenge! Really well organized! I had a wonderful time. Andy was a great guide for our team.
Dave,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
I want to thank you for all your hard work at the weekend in what I believe were difficult conditions, I have just checked the weather for this weekend and it appears the weather has settled down (bugger). I have come away from this weekend having greatly enjoyed the trip
I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of the Waitrose Tuscan 3 peaks team as we had an absolutely brilliant time. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.
I was actually sad when it came to an end.
Rachael,Tuscany 3 Peaks
Just to say thanks for last wknd, the whole thing was very good, well organised and enjoyable in a perverse way.
Steve,Tuscany 3 Peaks
Just a quick note to thank you for giving us such a memorable and fantastic week! You gave us all an unforgettable week! A Big thankyou - I Can say no more!
I would like to say a really big thank you to both Richard and Boris for taking (putting up with) us and that I had a fantastic time, coupled with great company, a beautiful setting and copious amounts of Vino!!!
Steve,Tuscany 3 Peaks
As you know we went on the 3 peaks 24 hour challenge last weekend, although we never quite made the time all 5 of us completed the 3 peaks even though one or two at the end were walking like extras out of Michael Jackson’s Thriller!!
We would like to say that the leaders that looked after us, they were in all our opinions absolutely terrific, they were great company as well as obviously being very knowledgeable and were able to motivate and advise at all times, we felt safe and totally in their hands even in total darkness on Scafell Pike – remembering we had 2 girls with us, so please pass on our thanks - and finally thank you for all your help along the way
Ben,Self-drive 3 Peaks
A short thank you for making our sore bum trip to Paris such fun. Ten 10/10 for your organisation and map reading.
Helen,Cycle London - Paris 3 day
I have just come back from the London to Paris cycle ride. I really enjoyed the trip and found the group varied and interesting. I thought the route chosen was superb as it maximised the time in the country side. I thought Dave and Steve did a superb job in making the trip and fun and convenient as possible.
I would definitely chose Adventure Cafe again and will be recommending it where I can.
Duncan,Cycle London - Paris 3 day
Thank you Adventure Café for a terrific weekend and wonderful experience we could not have enjoyed it more! Everyone was buzzing about it on Monday morning. We are so grateful for all of your efforts and organization, and for actively and effortlessly joining in and encouraging all the bawdy mischief that so characterizes our approach to everything we do it really made the weekend such good fun.
We would love to do something as a group and will nobble the boss as soon as he’s back from down under.
Matt,Norfolk Broads Paddle Challenge Weekend
Thanks you so much for taking me to Chamonix with Lily and Sarah.
I had such a great time and was such a good experience...
Thanks a lot..
We had a great trip, angst and all - we have come back full of scary moments and plenty of memories, and lots of laughs so thank you for that! I hope you have a relaxing weekend before you set off again into the unknown!
Fiona,Tuscany 3 Peaks
I just wanted to say an extra thank you for your encouragement and help when I was on my last legs there - I needed that extra pull :)
Myrren,Ten Tors Dartmoor Challenge
Having spent most of August on our four centre holiday in Tanzania, we felt the need to express our thanks for your excellent organisation of the trip.
Everything went like clockwork, from our being met by representatives of the company at Kilimanjaro International and also Zanzibar Airport, to enjoying great accommodation of a very high standard at all the resorts.
All in all a most excellent and well organised trip.
Just wanted to say thanks to Adventure Cafe for their fantastic organisation of the 3 peaks challenge. The guide, Iain Milligan was very supportive and informative throughout and I would like to extend my thanks to him as well.
Naraj,Classic Three Peaks Challenge
I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you very much for an absolutely awe inspiring weekend. We had such a great time and I think that was down to the expertise of the guides with us. It was a fantastic experience and something I would definitely love to do again.
Adam,Snowdonia Walking Weekend
Thanks for a wicked time on the 'Road to Morocco'.
Yet again, another great Adventure-Café production! Me n Ruthy are feeling a tad tired and aching a little, but it’s all worth it for the fantastic insight to life in north Africa, and the feeling of “achieving something completely stupid!
Thanks again to you all
Stevan,Cycle to the Sahara
Thanks for a Great Weekend.... What a good bunch of people they were to travel with...and what luck with the weather. In fact, I cant recall a single thing wasn't perfect on the whole trip. Fantastic!
And I haven't taken half as long to recover as I thought I would....
Garrard,Cycle France Weekend
Half way across Dartmoor up to my waist in watery bog, after a 5:30 start, or another day at the 'office'?
Give me Dartmoor every time!
Tony,Trans Dartmoor Challenge
Climbing Kilimanjaro with Adventure Cafe was one of the most exciting, challenging and rewarding trips I have ever been on. Living amongst the locals showed us a fascinating insight into their culture, the mountain and how life revolves around the highest freestanding mountain in the world. I will remember celebrating on the top with a group of friends I had only met just over a week ago for the rest of my life!
Just a quick email to say thanks to Richard and the other leaders, Paul, Dave and Derek; that practically all of us made it within the 24 hours. Can you please pass on my thanks to them, and I know that everybody was full of praise for their efforts and enthusiasm.
We are already planning our next Challenge!
Phil,Self-drive 3 Peaks
