Great. Class time just flew by and the study was actually fun. I was a novice hiker and found the hikes to be challenging, but worth the effort. I really value the friendships I made with others participating in the program. (more)Mark Hindin
Great. We loved it and rated our time in Panes the best part of our month in Spain and Portugal. We even looked at the price of houses in the region! (more)Diane Norman

Andalucia self guided walking vacation, Spain
From
£350

Hard to choose between seeing the most spectacular sunrises from my terrace with a pot of coffee or standing on a high point on a nearby hill, able to see the sea on the horizon and the lunar landscape and mountains to my left. (more)Briony Turner
The highlight was the spectacular walks offering such amazing views. During our 5 days in Lubrin we did three of the long walks and we thoroughly enjoyed walking through the foothills as well as high in the mountain tops, just stunning. (more)Annette Easton
The walking was the highlight. Very good value, excellent location but need a certain level of fitness, or at least an ability to manage a short, steep climb in and out of the village. (more)Denise Oakman

Hiking holiday in St Lucia
From
£964
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Reaching the top of Gros Piton. Tips? Go for it! Local benefits? The whole issue of environmentally friendly tourism is a complex one. In many ways there are benefits in that local people get much needed employment and sometimes improved amenities and infrastructure. But these changes don't always benefit those most in need and fail to filter down to ordinary people. We hiked off the beaten track and saw parts of the island that the 'normal' tourist (whatever...

Almeria walking vacation in Andalucia, Spain
From
£595

Memorable parts? Experiencing the real and unspoilt Spain, sampling the local food and hiking in delightful countryside. No tourists and the rustic charm of the accommodation. Tips? If you want total tranquility, the real Spain with its delicious tapas bars and restaurants and local wine ( all at amazing value!) and totally peaceful accommodation away from it all, but near enough to walk into the village, then this is the place for you.

From
€1,045
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The great organisation that appeared effortless but I'm sure reflected much planning and forethought. Every day the walks were 'just right' for the weather, our legs and our mood without us having to think about it. The food was superb, varied and appeared as if by miracle in the right amounts at the perfect time. Tips? Do what preparation you can but don't worry as there are so many walks requiring so many different levels of fitness that you will love it regardless... (more)anne webb
Transylvania walking and nature holiday in Romania
From

The whole stay was excellent but the very best day was the horse and cart ride with barbecue. We also loved the remote rural position, the peace, the local produce (especially honey, apricot jam and raw milk), and the company of the other guests. (more)Joan Payne
The most knowledgeable guide I have ever had the privilege to meet, the stunning natural beauty, and the complete detachment from my day to day city life. (more)Paul Kearney
It was wonderful. I was able to explore the scenery, the history and even meet some of the local people. The small number of people made the tours feel much more personal and the staff were warm and friendly. (more)Elizabeth Long
