What you need to bring

 

For the longer tours (2 to 4 hours total time) you will need to carry water and food (energy bars, etc) in a suitable backpack. For the warmer months of the year please bring a running cap. Your guide will be carrying a mobile phone and maps to share with you during the tour. Trail running shoes are a bonus, but most routes can be safely negotiated with a good pair of road running trainers.
