review 13 Feb 2023

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

Skiing in a beautiful place in good company.

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

Book independently. Better value and you won't then be disappointed with the operator and their arrangements- or lack of them.

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

No. I'm not sure how they can claim responsibility travel credentials. I did not see any of this.

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

The vacation was great ( hotel, guides, skiing etc) but the operator was not. Misinformation on their website, expensive flight supplements on a near empty flight and chaotic return travel arrangements that meant I had to get a pre dawn train as the transfer ( which they also arranged) did not work. Very poor customer service.

Read the operator's response here:

Thank you for taking the time to post your review following your recent vacation to Venabu. Overall, we were pleased to read that you enjoyed your vacation skiing in such a beautiful destination. We are however truly sorry that your overall booking experience was not good. It is extremely important to us that our customers have a positive experience both at the time of booking and during their vacation. I was pleased that one of our team was able to discuss this with you prior to departure. We do hope that this will not deter you from booking another vacation with us in the not too distant future.

review 3 Jan 2022

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

Snowshoeing and the off track cross country Skiing where we got to get into the mountains

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

Ensure that you bring a range of layers for the weather. Be prepared to be flexible about the schedule as it is dependent on the amount of snow falling.

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

Yes.

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

The food was fabulous and happily accommodated special dietary requirements. The instructors were wonderful and very patient (Iím not a natural skier!!) My only downside was that the operator was unwilling to assist me in booking a regional flight rather than one from London. This is really inconvenient as I live 4 hours away from Heathrow and our flight departure was 7am on Boxing Day. I think someone needs to remind them that not everyone lives within the M25!

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

The instruction given. The leaders were very sensitive to the needs of people in their group. Excellent food. Excellent scenery.

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

Getting clothing right is critical & work with layers. A balance of avoiding cold & overheating. If you are sweating, then you've got it wrong! Make sure that you keep the door shut in the drying rooms because they use de-humidifiers. If a door or window is left open, they won't work.

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

Yes

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

An excellent introduction to cross country skiing for new people.
