We enjoyed a 6-hour and a 3-hour walk with Inga. The routes she carefully planned for us were wonderful and showed how much variety Dartmoor offers. It was very interesting listening to the information Inga provided about the area and its history - even in German which Inga speaks perfectly well. The hikes were definitely one of the highlights of our stay in Devon. Franziska, Munich, May 2014
