“Going for a walk with Phil from Heartlands Ecotours is a wonderful experience.  I am transported out of my regular life and brought truly into the present. He has a huge knowledge of plants and the local area. He has really done his research of the area. I especially appreciate Phil’s relaxed delivery of all this knowledge, mixed with his gentle humour. He doesn’t give you the whole of his encyclopaedic knowledge, he leaves you knowing that there will be more to tell the next time you walk with him. The walks are perfectly paced, stopping to look at plants, points of interest or stunning views. I have been on a number of walks with Phil and highly recommend one.”
