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

The last days (Fridays walk) was the most memorable because 1) We reached the highest part of the walk. 2) the sun shone and we relaxed in a scheduled area just before we completed the walk - a great finish and memory.

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

I cannot think of anything specific. The guide and hotel were very professional and had everything well honed and perfectly practiced. Take some sun block and anti midge stuff as even in October you could well need it. On a personal note I omitted to pre-book the long stay car park and got stung on the exit - my fault but a heads up from tour rep might be useful in pointing this out!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes the local who worked in the hotel seemed to directly benefits, as did the local taxi firm and café/shops.

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

Very good trip. Hotel was excellent, food both great and plentiful. Trip members were all good: agreeable and excellent company. Guide was knowledgeable, approachable and helpful. Overall nothing to complain about and everything to be completely happy with the trip

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

The views from the high Picos; the varied, lush, green landscape; the amazing wildflowers…the walks were very diverse and a great introduction to a beautiful area led by an excellent and informative guide.

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

The terrain and weather is variable - be prepared for a variety of conditions underfoot.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, the hotel made an effort to source local food and it is small and family run. A group vacation is also pretty travel efficient.

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

This vacation was great - the combination of a very friendly welcoming hotel with excellent food, the knowledgeable, engaging and good humoured guide and the variety of walks combined to make this one of the best vacations I have had in ages.
