A bit disappointing really
Mercantour family hiking vacation, France
From
£435
excluding flights
Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson
The whole thing was memorable! Our 6 year old and 4 year old leading "Leonidas" our donkey through the French Alps, sleeping in a beautiful yurt in an Alpine meadow, and feeling like we'd done something completely different to the typical "bucket and spade" type of vacation. (more)Alison Godfrey
The mountains, flora and fauna in an exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt part of the world, within and on the periphery of the Mercantour National Park in the French maritime Alps were most memorable. (more)Nick Lampert
Annapurna Sanctuary trek in Nepal
From
£840
excluding flights
It really was the vacation of a lifetime. The 9 day trek round Annapurna Sanctuary has to be the highlight. This was made even more memorable by having the most amazing Sherpa guide and porter. (more)Gina Crowcroft

Really enjoyed the whole trip, the operator was excellent and looked after me the whole time. Thank you. (more)Laura Hayes

The Ridgeway walking holiday, England
From
£750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The feeling of being able just to enjoy the natural beauty. The hospitality of the B&Bs Tips? Start at Avebury, rather than Overton Hill Local benefits? Local employment Overall rating? Excellent (more)Tjarda Murray
Jersey self guided walking tours, The Channel Islands
From
£574

Nicaragua walking tour vacation
From
£2,725
excluding flights
Wildlife encounters in the tropical forest - howler monkeys, a sloth, racoons and porcupines plus too many species of birds to name. Guides were likeable and knowledgeable (more)Stephen Osgerby
The beauty of the country and the people was the highlight. Some of the most warm and friendly people I have ever come across. Very safe in the areas we travelled and absolutely amazing art for very little money. Loved it!! (more)Rene McRogers

From
€665

September was a perfect month to walk, even though it was exceptionally warm; places were not overcrowded and most of the restaurants were still open. (more)Linda Simpson

(The vacation was) fantastic. (more)Jennifer Sharpe
Kumano Kodo trail self guided trekking vacation, Japan
From
US $850
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All of it was good. The highlight might have been the first sight of the Golden Temple in Kyoto, or the first proper Japanese meal. Tips? As it is primarily a walking vacation through woods, I would recommend one takes good walking boots and a stick. Local benefits? Mainly staying staying in small, traditional hotels (ryokan) must be good. Overall rating? Excellent. All the arrangements worked perfectly. (more)John Brennan
Guernsey self guided walking tours, The Channel Islands
From
£651
excluding flights
The sheer beauty of the island, the friendly people, the walks and the super clean loos along the route! (more)Jane Haywood
The most memorable part of the vacation was visiting the smaller islands of Sark and Herm. Not only was the scenery fabulous but the weather was kind! (more)Stuart Harris
The day trip to Herm, the beaches were beautiful and the weather was great for an easy walk round the island. (more)Gabrielle Lorenz
Spain hiking vacation, Sarria to Santiago de Compostela
From
€675
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Getting to Santiago to the Cathedral after a long and sometimes demanding walk. Tips? For those in their sixties I would suggest a walk duration of 11-12 days from Porto to Santiago. Local benefits? Local people benefitted certainly from the additional business they got from us. We were extremely careful to respect the environment we were in and were generally impressed with the level of cleanliness and respect shown to it. Overall rating? This was... (more)Chandra Kant Sharma

Shakespeares Way & Thames Path walking vacation
From
£533
excluding flights
Memorable parts? During the course of the week one cannot fail to be impressed by the sights seen on the Thames Path, sadly the planned programme didn't allow time to visit these places. Tips? To make sure that the daily walks are within their capabilities, even though the paths are on the level. The Thames path is well maintained but it was noticeable as you approached London, through London and to the east that a number of the signs had been vandalised/pointing in the wrong direction.... (more)Graham Stenger
Kilimanjaro climb, Machame Route
From
£1,925
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The joy and relief of reaching the top of kili, timed to perfection as the sun broke through the horizon. Tips? If you want a challenge this is the trip for you and do the 7 day your body will thank you for it. Local benefits? Yes, we brought money and employment to the area, the mountain set up was great, the only visible sign is where people had left rubbish on route. (more)Daniel Waller

Most memorable was the lovely walks and the lovely weather. We enjoyed the house where we lived - As Tunel - spacious for 2 people. (more)Jenny Dunlop
Trekking in Ethiopia, nr Lalibela
From
US $205
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Arrving at the first village on day one of the trek - incredible setting and the most spectacular place to have a cup of tea anywhere in Ethiopia! Tips? Take some alternative nibbles for when you tire of injera. Wear high factor sunscreen - it's high up so it might not feel hot but you burn quicker. Drink lots of water. Local benefits? Yes, we were told 60% of the money goes to the community. Our trekking had minimal impact on the local environment, though... (more)Joe Downie
Spain self guided walking vacation in Andalucia
From
£470
excluding flights
Grazalema was an excellent centre for experiencing the wonderful walking, views, fauna and flora of this stunning reserve. The village itself was delightful and we were made to feel most welcome. (more)John and Meg Tyler
The walking is very well described and on relatively easy paths/ tracks so that we were walking a grade above that we had expected with no real difficulties. Dave and Gill are very helpful in providing other walks if you want something easier/ more difficult. (more)Iain Murray
We especially enjoyed the last day when we walked in sunshine under clear blue skies high into the hills & had wonderful views to even higher hills, some with snow on them. (more)Jenny Speakman

(more)Catherine Lane
Hiking in St Lucia
From
£899
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Reaching the top of Gros Piton. Tips? Go for it! Local benefits? The whole issue of environmentally friendly tourism is a complex one. In many ways there are benefits in that local people get much needed employment and sometimes improved amenities and infrastructure. But these changes don't always benefit those most in need and fail to filter down to ordinary people. We hiked off the beaten track and saw parts of the island that the 'normal' tourist (whatever... (more)Margaret Gravelle
Romania hiking vacation, self guided
From
US $964
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We were bowled over by the unspoilt Romanian countryside. No tractors or combined harvesters, just people creating hay stacks using pitch forks, horses and wooden carts being used for transport and horses dragging logs down from the forest. Each place we stayed was interesting in its own right and visits to the Black church in Brasov and Bran Castle added to the vacation. Tips? Unfortunately, or fortunately, we didn't see any bears on the walk. We found out that... (more)Liz McCarthy
