Yorkshire 3 peaks. My first time walking with a guide & I thought it was great. I’d definitely recommend it. We didn’t have to spend time deliberating over a map & Dave set a pace which would enable us to complete the walk in the time, let us know what to expect at each point of the walk & kept us going. Thank you – a fun day with a great sense of achievement at the end.

Having completed the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge on Saturday in awful weather I would to thank Edge travel for a fantastic adventure I felt safe and supported despite the rotten conditions and even managed to laugh a lot! I would highly recommend this company if you fancy doing something outside the box whatever your fitness level, as they are great at tailoring it to your abilities. Having said that the mountain climbers at the top of each peak may have been a challenge too far🤣

Dave Pickles of EDGE is one of those special individuals that you may be fortunate to meet. He brings years of experience and knowledge to make you a fitter better person no matter what your level of fitness is. Whether it’s fitness sessions, uk walks or something more adventurous you don’t need to look any further than EDGE. Dave makes the sessions fun although if he smiles at you, you’re going to work harder. However, smile back and enjoy it. It will make you better / fitter.

This was my first EDGE trek with Dave in September 2016. I am 100% certain I wouldn’t have submitted without Dave. He has summited Kilimanjaro over 50 times and his vast experience is very evident. His understanding of every emotion a trekker on this mountain is going through is uncanny. His ability to feed you enough information for a successful trek is invaluable. The pace is slow to allow safe acclimatising. Up until the summit attempt this feels like a trek that only gradually gets more challenging. Summit night was a whole level tougher but reaching the crater rim with sunrise felt like I was on a film set. Summiting was surreal (take plenty of photos) I descended quickly and enjoyed feeling the air thickening again at about the same pace the enormity of what I’d achieved really did start sinking in. I definitely have to do this one again as it still feels like a dream!

I did this trip with Dave in 2017. From start to finish it was the most emotional experience of my life. It was bloody hard, testing and satisfying. I choose the right company for my experience that goes without saying. I didn’t know anyone on the trip but from the end of day 1 I made friends for life and I genuinely mean that. I adore everyone of the team I walked with. If your looking for a challenge I would defo recommend this one.

IF you’ve seen and have been inspired by the Comic Relief Killimanjaro climb and are interested in finding out how you too could get close to this amazing mountain and have a wonderful adventure! IF you wish to challenge and grow yourself in the company of other wonderful inspiring people then you need to meet Dave Pickles from EDGE Travel Worldwide. We had the most amazing time. We were all from different backgrounds ,different age groups , different fitness levels , and Dave brought us together as a TEAM! We laughed , cried , sang , stumbled , hugged and shared this amazing experience together. What you can’t see in the Comic Relief film are the amazing porters who carry the provisions , care for the climbers , encourage every step of the way and who make the journey so special . I reached the summit holding hands with Hilary – he sang softly for hours as we climbed the mountain in the moonlight and this was one of the most beautiful experiences in my life so far .

My name is Andrew, and I went on a trip to climb Kilimanjaro back in 2014. Four months prior to the trip my wife Lisa, had an addition to our growing family, naturally I was in two minds about going. Lisa was cool with me heading off, so off I went. This was meant to be trip of a life time; and it was.Due to family and work commitments, not much time at all was dedicated to prep and research for this trip. However, great information was provided by David and all timely from showing an interest in the trip to reaching the top of Kili! Information flowed such as, what I was getting into, Tanzania’s climate, required baseline fitness, medical requirements, insurance and so much more… If I wasn’t sure of something or needed an answer, David was always available to get that answer. Overall my involvement was minimal to payment and packing my personal kit and getting myself to the airport. David just made everything easy. The trip itself was amazing. Everything was taken care of. The party members all had a similar approach to life and shared a great sense of humour. The morale was kept high by David and he kept an eye on each person just to make sure we were OK. The porters who carried our kit were also lovely to chat and have a laugh with, they also kept our morale high. The variety of climates one experiences on a trip like this puts the body to extraordinary lengths in a short space of time. But it was all worth it and I would do it again, if I had the time. EDGE Travel would be the firm I’d use again for any future adventure trip as they make it so easy. I understand Peru maybe on the list, once the family is old enough.

I was fortunate enough to be part of Dave Pickles’ party for the 2014 Kilimanjaro trip. In the months before we set off Dave set up a Facebook page for everyone to ask questions and get advice. He organised several day trips to go walking together so that we could have the chance to meet before the big event. Dave is a mine of information. He was able to prepare us all thoroughly before we left, ensuring that we had the right kit and that we understood the equipment we needed, and what we didn’t. He was well-versed in African customs and so was able to advise us about what to expect. His medical knowledge was particularly detailed and timely as he advised us when to get vaccinations, how much to expect to pay, their potential side effects and much more. His attention to detail is formidable, but that’s not his greatest strength. When you’re embarking on a journey into the unknown, you need to be able to trust the leader. Dave’s military experience, his persona and charisma, and his incredible knowledge of the world means that his confidence is not superficial. It is genuine confidence based on experience. That kind of support is just what you need when you’re placing your trust in someone to make the journey extraordinary. The trip went without a hitch. Every eventuality was either foreseen or dealt with superbly efficiently by Dave as it arose. His ability to think on his feet and come up with the most sensible course of action, even in the most testing of circumstances, means that as a holiday-maker you can relax and enjoy the experience, no matter how challenging it first appears. When the oxygen is thin and everyone’s tired and emotional, Dave just comes up with the right course of action and delivers the plan with a smile and a boost to everyone’s confidence. You just know you’re going to make it when you’re travelling with Dave! The Kilimanjaro trip was the most incredible experience. One thing I do know – I would not have had such a great experience without Dave’s support and guidance. His experience shines through, and his willingness to do everything humanly possible to make your journey memorable is part of the lasting memory that you take with you after you return. He inspires you to go beyond what you think you can do now, and to make your life a memorable experience. I wouldn’t go to places like this without believing I was in the hands of someone who knew what they were doing. Dave is that man.

I had the pleasure of being part of the EDGE Travel Worldwide Explore Tanzania trip in October/November 2015 which was organised and led by Dave Pickles. Well what can I say about this trip other than ‘WOW’! It was absolutely amazing from start to finish and very much a trip and experience of a lifetime for me. The mixture of safari, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and relaxing on Zanzibar was just a perfect mix for the trip. The safari was a perfect start as this allowed the group to start to get to know each other and bond as well as start to decompress and relax whilst enjoying the amazing African landscapes and viewing more animals than you could imagine was possible including all of the big 5 – I know people who have been on much longer safari’s and not managed this. This was primarily down to the excellent knowledge of the guide that Dave had arranged for this leg of the trip. The accommodation each night was also something special and not to be missed. The main part of the trip is definitely the experience of climbing Kilimanjaro. The challenge of this shouldn’t be underestimated, however the sense of achievement standing at the top next to that famous sign is something that needs to be experienced to be believed. Following the exertions of Kilimanjaro, being able to relax in the lap of luxury in Zanzibar is just what the doctor ordered. The resort is of the highest quality with great food and really friendly staff. One of the main reasons that the trip went so well is no doubt down to Dave. Dave is the perfect leader for a trip of this kind, from the obviously meticulous preparation beforehand ensuring the itinerary and accommodation were second to none, to the support and encouragement he gave all of the group during the trip. Dave has undoubtedly got an amazing level of professionalism, experience and expertise in leading adventure trips of this kind as well as local knowledge which is best demonstrated by the respect that the local people have for him. Dave’s greatest strength though is his ability to keep the group motivated and ensuring that everyone is happy, knowing just the right time to have a bit of fun and the right time to be a bit more serious and focus on what is ahead. I would highly recommend Dave and EDGE Travel Worldwide for a trip of this nature.I will definitely be doing the ‘Discover Peru’ (hopefully this year) and the ‘Go to the Extreme Kazakhstan’ trips with Dave and EDGE over the next couple of years and also look forward to seeing what other trips he adds to the list.

Just completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks … totally crippled but it was a hell of an adventure. Dave and his team are there encouraging you along the way, and make you feel safe on the trek. The group was mixed abilities but came together eat the stops and great banter was had by all 👍 Can’t wait time fo the National 3 Peaks now 😃

I did the Yorkshire three peak challenge last weekend. The weather was horrible (I've been told that it can rain in Yorkshire). However, Dave and the team at EDGE Travel Worldwide managed to make the trek enjoyable by being very professional and throwing jokes and banters along the way to lift the spirits. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and can totally recommend EDGE Travel Worldwide as an organiser if you are looking for walks in the UK or worldwide.

Myself and two friends took part in the 3 peaks challenge at the weekend. I knew from the get off that this would be tough in places but Dave managed to keep everyone going with his positive attitude and good humour. I especially liked the way he made the effort to spend a bit of time with everyone during the walk and get to know his fellow walkers that wee bit better. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dave or edge travel to anyone I knew. I felt the cost was very reasonable and the atmosphere was very relaxed...would definitely go again and even look into other challenges on offer. Thank you

Tanzania and Kilimanjaro was my first trip I did with EDGE. I remember I kept asking myself before the trip if it was really happening. So it did happen and even that until today it’s still the toughest thing I’ve ever done in my life I feel I found myself on that mountain. Believe or not I actually did it again for the second time six months later! And want to go again.. Am I addicted? 😀 Tanzania feels like another home to me with kind people, tasty food and great scenery. You won’t be disappointed!

Kilimanjaro, wow – I wanted a challenge and that is what I got! I absolutely loved this trip; the itinerary was well put together with Dave Pickles coordinating every day seamlessly. The local crew of Porters and Guides were so incredibly funny, friendly, humble and kind, I felt that I was always in safe hands. I was travelling alone, but within minutes of meeting people at the airport, friendships were made and a lovely group was born. Two thirds of the group knew each other previously but this did not really impact on the group dynamics, everyone integrated well. This trek took me way out of my comfort zone…I have reasonable fitness level, but I found this so hard, particularly the summit night when altitude sickness descended. But it made the success all the sweeter when I reached the very top of highest freestanding mountain in the world. Ages in our group ranged from 19-74, young and young at heart got to the top, so it really is achievable for all with the right mindset and support. Dave gave clear guidelines to follow from the outset, rest is best, hydration, pace and relaxation…his support, enthusiasm and vast experience gave me so much confidence in my ability to succeed. Dave constantly encourages, jokes, entertains and manages people in a fun and positive way, striving to give each individual person such an epic experience. He balances that comedic, approachable charm with military organisation and calm professionalism – it is most certainly Dave and his ethos that gives Edge Travel the ‘edge’ above other similar operators. I could have booked this trip directly with any tour guide in Tanzania, but to be able to draw on Dave’s expertise and knowledge leading up to the trip as well as whilst we were away was invaluable. Only one small flaw in the itinerary, it would have been wonderful to have an additional day by the pool in our hotel at the end with our group to digest our achievements and raise a toast with a few Kilimanjaro beers! That was just the luck of the draw with the flights and not a complaint, I guess I should have just booked that extra week in Zanzibar after all. I am rather proud to achieved what I have with the help of Edge Travel, it is all still sinking in and already I can’t wait to plan the next adventure…

It has been a privilege to walk with the people I have met. Many of them, friends for life. On my first EDGE Travel Worldwide trip I took my daughter to Machu Picchu. To share such an adventure with her was incredible and we will treasure the memories forever . It changes your mindset seeing the culture and a view if life in a different way .It’s hard to put into words how much Edge Travel worldwide has changed our lives as a family for the better . Through meeting Sarah and then Dave I have travelled to Machu Picchu and Kilimanjaro & I have now reserved my third adventure.

This was my second EDGE trip, this time I took my son , we loved it every second of it . Kilimanjaro is so much more than just the summit it’s the journey before and after . The people that care for you, the guides the trek the adventure folds out in pages like a chapter in front of you you can’t wait to turn the next page . The joy of this experience is you take it home with you and the feeling of such an achievement stays with you . I feel healthier, fitter and addicted to altitude. At the time it’s a tough challenge but to push yourself out of normal daily life and out if your comfort zone its an experience I will never forget . For me it’s about making the most of the time we are here and trying to stay fit as long as I can and share these incredible accomplishments in the knowledge the next adventure is out there. Without Dave none of this would have been possible. The encouragement, guidance and kindness extends far beyond a trip. I have seen Dave show my children how to overcome fear of heights, learn about weather conditions, believe in themselves and succeed without any limits. These are priceless travel experiences and we want to thank you for making our dreams come true for me and my family.

What can I say, this was the experience of a lifetime and was fantastic! Every aspect of the trip for me was handled with professionalism and care with everyone’s safety and enjoyment paramount. The local guides and contacts were fantastic, plainly experienced and some of the loveliest people I have met. Walking at high altitude (19,500 ft at the top) comes with its own risks but I felt that every step of the way our wellbeing and health was being looked after and I am happy to say I would trust my life to Dave and his teams on any of his trips. I got so many things form this trip, meeting new people, walking at altitude, spending so much time laughing and being able to mentally unwind. The achievement of reaching the top of the highest free-standing mountain in the world, seeing the sunrise over Africa, has and will stay with me forever. It has given me the mental strength to do other things in life and when things have got tough afterwards I have been able to say to myself “You walked to the top of the highest free standing mountain in the world, you have got this” and it has inevitably got me through.

I went on the 2019 trek and what an incredible trip! Certainly tougher than I expected especially on the final ascent but well worth it to have the experience of standing on the roof of Africa. The diversity of landscapes that are experienced throughout the trek is amazing. I would like to highlight that throughout the trip Dave and the team in Tanzania were incredible and the whole trip was made easier knowing that I was in completely safe hands and would thank everyone for their professionalism, care and attention. One of the many memorable moments for me was on the final ascent walk the Tanzania team could see that people were flagging and began singing which I know had an inspirational impact on me and certainly helped get me to the top and speaking to others it had a similar effect. I would not hesitate to recommend Edge Travel to others and also am looking forward to going on another Edge trek.
