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


We loved the nature, scenery, coast, beaches and the calm, peaceful, tranquility of the Isles of Scilly. The islands were really clean, no litter or rubbish, very green and rural. The Scillonians were very respectful and polite, very engaging and helpful - very friendly. The water taxis and boating were very easy and completely easy to use. he walking routes qually were easy to follow.

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


Be prepared for all weather! You will need an array of clothing and footware - so check the weather daily. Planning your days or routes/trips each day according to the weather and tides is crucial. On long days you will need to take your own provisions - lunches and drinks etc.

Yes we do think that the local people and businesses benefited.
