“Our thanks to the instructor, who was really good. Not only did he competently guide us around the cave, but he was incredibly knowledgeable and interesting, and pitched the whole session perfectly, a real credit to your company.” Tim Daniel
“I wanted to write a message to thank you for a fantastic weekend. As best man I arranged a stag weekend for 17 people, including a stay at Merlins, quad biking and canyoning. The service from start to finish was excellent, showing me flexibility when needed. Tudor and Joyce at the booking office were efficient and helpful. Ger was very welcoming and made us feel ready for the weekend straight away. The location in Ystradgynlais was perfect, and we enjoyed our night there as much as we enjoyed Swansea. Our particular highlight was the Canyoning which was a real rush! The staff made it funny, thrilling and safe. They took great care of us. I couldn’t recommend this weekend anymore to anyone, and will be letting my friends know.” Mr.Richard Rastall
“6 of us have just returned from a weekend of canyoning and clay pigeon shooting organised by Call of the Wild and we can’t wait to go again. All of the instructors were excellent and made sure we got the most out of our time with them. It was great that they all clearly cared for the environment we were in and were more than happy to share their knowledge with us – this helped to make the activities even more entertaining. I wouldn’t hesitate to book with this company again.” Derek, Aylesbury
“The quality / friendliness of your instructors when you actually meet them is also a great advertisement for your business.” Martin Finch
“Fantastic – Mike looked after us at all times. The lads who took us canyoning (sorry I’ve forgotten their names) were excellent – really good health and safety awareness and very friendly.

“My group of 7 have just come back from a canyoning/caving activity weekend and I thought that you’d appreciate some feedback.
The whole weekend was superbly organized and very slick. Pick ups were bang on time and drivers helpful and friendly (even when we changed the pre-arranged pick up time from Swansea). On Sunday we were due to do Porth-y-Ogof but because of heavy rain it was necessary to go to another cave. Our driver was redirected en-route and linked up with the instructor without faff or delay, very impressive. Even booking has been straightforward and clear.
Every single one of the instructors was well equipped, professional and extremely safety conscious but always had in mind that we were they to have fun. The corporate look (Call of the Wild fleeces, sign written minibuses etc) and decent quality kit added to the feeling of being well looked after.
I can’t speak highly enough of the staff. They were friendly, accommodating and attentive. The food was just what a group of guys need – filling, unfussy, great quality and plenty of it. In short the service was consistently excellent.
The most impressive thing about the weekend was the value for money. £185 for an unforgettable experience in fantastic surroundings can’t be beaten. My guys particularly commented on the lack of ‘hidden extras’.This, as well as the above points, all helped create the feel of genuinely being valued as customers. I think this is the reason you have built up a fair bit of ‘brand loyalty’ from the other groups we talked to on the activities.
Thanks again for a great weekend – we’ll be back.” Ade Butteriss, 4th October 2010

“Had a fantastic weekend and don’t think anything could be improved. We will most certainly be coming back.” Ms. L. Ellams, Newcastle-under-Lyme
“For £126 this was excellent value!” Simon Brent, London
“Just to say I had a fantastic weekend! Can’t wait to come back. Top effort.” Simon Gay, Portsmouth
“A fantastic weekend enjoyed by all” Ms. L.Dykes, Staffs
“We had a fabulous weekend, thank you very much. Everything went like clockwork and, as Best Man, I couldn’t have wished for a better result. I must say that you and Call of the Wild in general have been absolutely fantastic and I can’t praise your service highly enough. The hotel was perfect, the caving activity was brilliant and Swansea was a first-class location for stag parties.
Please pass on our thanks to Mike, James, Lee for the way they conducted the caving. They were extremely professional and we all felt very safe under their watch. We were all hugely impressed by the caves and throroughlly enjoyed the caving experience. The Swansea night-life was very good, too. We had a superb meal in La Parilla on Saturday night and we found it very easy getting from the hotel to the various bars in and around Wind Street. And as we are all used to paying vastly inflated prices for drinks, it was a welcome change to order a round of 16 drinks in Oceana night club and still get change from a £20 note!!
“I would recommend your company to anyone and hope to try more of your activities in the future.” Edward Oldrey, London
“A massive thanks for all your efforts in helping me organise the weekend. I know we all had an awesome time. The activities were fantastic.” Simon Adams, Oxford
“I recently returned from an adventure holiday in New Zealand where I went canyoning and caving and the guides over there asked me why I had come to New Zealand to try canyoing when Call of the Wild in Wales do canyoning in the Brecon Beacons. When back I booked a day canyoning with Call of the Wild as a joint birthday present for my father and brother. The scenery was every bit as good and the activity just as exciting (and wet!). In future I’ll contact Call of the Wild before choosing to fly to the other side of the world!” David Manley, London

We also receive thank you letters from past customers. Here are some of the things they have written.
“I just wanted to write and thank you all for an excellent weekend which the kids loved even though some of them wouldn’t admit it! We’ve all been doing a lot of work about our time in Wales. The work is brilliant and full of positive experiences and enthusiasm, so I know they had a blast. As did we..so Wales gave us loads of positive stuff to work with.
Well thanks again for a great weekend and I’m sure I’ll be seeing you all again.” Vanessa Watson, Youth Worker with Momo Project, South Wimbledon
“Weekend was excellent. Thanks to everybody at Call of the Wild for their efforts. You’ve got a brilliant team there, well done.” Carlton Moore
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all on behalf of the Griffiths stag party members. The weekend was run to a very high standard but at the same time a casual approach was given. This made us all feel very welcome and allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our activities. Most of us had never taken part in these activities before and all of us will definitely be taking part in them again. Would you please also pass on our thanks to those who looked after us at Merlins. Barry and the catering staff including the waitresses, without them this weekend would not have been a STAG weekend. Barry was a star he looked after us for both nights, by keeping the bar open until the early hours. Once again thanks from all of us, you will be on the top of our list for the next weekend of this nature, that we consider taking part in.” M Griffiths – Berkshire
“Just a note to say a huge thank you to yourself and the Call of the Wild team for a fantastic weekend. I cannot begin to tell you what an amazing time we had. We all wanted to come away feeling challenged, shattered and on a high and that certainly happened! although speaking for myself here in saying that I did things that I never thought I would ever have the courage to do, I think the others would agree to that to. A huge thanks to you for doing a brilliant job of organising us all..But the main thing was we did everything that was set for us and we are still on a high from it all. Well, we are already planning when we can all get together in the Spring to do it all again, and remembering it all again while I’m sitting at my desk not wanting to be here!” Ms T Askew – Kent
“Just a brief note to say we had a most excellent weekend last weekend. Everyone really enjoyed it and we were all impressed by how you managed to be laid back and friendly and get usto the right place at the right time in such an efficient manner.” Mr N Davis – Cardiff
“A big thanks from all the boys who attended at the weekend. Everybody, without exception had a great time. I would like you to pass on our thanks to all the staff who provided us with a great welcome and excellent tuition. Finally, Ystradgynlais is a lovely place, all the locals we met made us very welcome.” Mr P Clements

Fantastic experience. It has to be one of the most fun activities that can be done in the UK.
The instructors (James and Josh) were both professional, fun and able to pitch the experience to suit all levels.
Couldn't have been better. Will definitely be coming back.
