review 23 Jun 2021

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

All of it. Love the concept of self guided walks, finding your way with a map.. the physical challenge and the excitement of what each nights accommodation is going to be like.

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

Wear proper walking shoes!

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

The selection of accommodation supported local businesses. We travelled to and from the destination by train and during the vacation by foot, so I guess the environmental impact was minimal.

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

Great. This was our first taster of a self guided walk, and this is something we would like to do again. It gives that certain feeling of freedom! The support of the operator during the vacation was excellent.

An unexpected surprise at the end of our pilgrimage

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

Take sun cream and water. Take time to enjoy the experience which is more than the walk. Watch out for the stinging nettles in the summer long trousers recommended or a beating stick. Having an OS map app on your phone can be helpful

Benefited local people in the hospitality business

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

It was a great vacation for seasoned walkers great food pleasant hosts at each venue and maps and printed guides all useful.
