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

The walks were extremely carefully planned to make the most of the scenery. Loved all of it but best personal highlights were the rainforest area day 1, Tejeda days 2&3 and the descent to the barranco floor day 5.

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

Go for it, we have done self guided walks with a number of different companies but both rate this the best in terms of excellent trip notes, thorough planning and interesting locations.

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

All of the hotels were small local businesses with no chain hotels etc and the taxi drivers were local so yes.

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

Excellent, would book another vacation with the same company as we were particularly impressed with the attention to interest and detail on the self guided walks - there were no ‘boring’ bits!

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

The walks from Fontaneles to Cruz de Tejeda and from Cruz de Tejeda to Aguimes.

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

Take the timings and distances provided with a pinch of salt - some do not appear to have taken into account the extra time needed for the ascents and the last day's distance was way out (10km rather than the 16km indicated). Unless the Parador is open at Cruz de Tejeda opt to stay in Tejeda as the alternative accommodation in Cruz de Tejeda is not great.

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

Local hotels certainly benefitted.

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

Good. A bit disappointed with the accommodation on the 3rd and 4th nights but we have reported this back to the vacation provider.

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

We really enjoyed the walks and being away from any crowds. Brilliant scenery.

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

Go for the better class accommodation. Three of the hotels we stayed in were only just alright but the other three were very good.

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

The economy is certainly supported by tourism.

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

We had a wonderful time.
