Stout walking shoes are a must.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Meeting some great fellow travelers and seeing some of the real spain.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for high temperatures in August and for spending a reasonable amount of time on the bus traveling between stops.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Mostly. Local produce and staff were used at the accommodation, but the cortijo is owned by an ex-pat couple.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Lots of fun. Good balance of activity and relaxation - the trip notes were a good description. Maybe a little too organised for the independent minded.

review 27 Sep 2002

Myself and my wife booked this trip at short-notice after following a link from the responsibletravel.com website. It's the first time we have ever taken anything even remotely resembling an "activity" vacation and we loved it. The organised walks were all interesting and passed through beautiful, unspoilt countryside and had a personal touch by calling in on "locals" on route for a drink and a chat. Facilities and catering at the base villa were excellent. I'm very pleased to have chanced on your website and will certainly be using it again to set up future vacations.
