Japan self guided trekking vacation, Nakasendo Trail
From
US $965
excluding flights
Experiencing a completely different culture was the highlight. (more)John Gunston
The walks through the ancient forests of Japan were above expectation, but the highlight I think was staying in the Ryokan - the charm and character of the inns and our hosts and the total immersion into a traditional Japanese experience with their tatami rooms, onsen baths and local cuisine. (more)Neil Dillon
Excellent, looking forward to traveling with you again. (more)Dennis Minchin

Difficult to pick out one highlight but the walk around the beautiful lake in Mljet with a swim at the end was certainly a highlight. (more)Sarah Jennings
We enjoyed getting out into the countryside on the walks. Since we were towards the end of the season, most of the time we were the only ones on the trails. The area was spectacularly beautiful, so everywhere we went had amazing views. We liked staying in small B&Bs. Each one had an interesting history. (more)Robin Melvin
all of it was amazing! Excellent. Our tour operator are a fantastic company and ensure you are well cared for put together a great itinerary. (more)Paulene Morrow
Mercantour family hiking vacation, France
From
€550
excluding flights
Our children would say Kaia, our donkey who they bonded with was the most memorable. For me, the emptiness and the views. Possibly my favourite spot of all was the Chappelle St-Barnabe near Val Pelens where we whiled away a couple of hours in glorious sunshine with spectacular views. (more)Rob Booth
Awesome, it has raised the bar for next year! (more)Tony Johnson
The whole thing was memorable! Our 6 year old and 4 year old leading "Leonidas" our donkey through the French Alps, sleeping in a beautiful yurt in an Alpine meadow, and feeling like we'd done something completely different to the typical "bucket and spade" type of vacation. (more)Alison Godfrey

9.5%...Most memorable was the friendliness and welcome feeling Japan gives (more)Dianne Williams
Staying in small guesthouses in small towns was very memorable and pushed me outside of my comfort zone in a good way, to experience a bit more of the culture. This was a great trip and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a walking vacation on their own time. (more)Cristi Carlstead

From

The highlight was lunch at Fattoria La Tagliata after completing the Sentierti degli dei walk.

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

The scenery throughout the trip was wonderful and the most impressive was that everyday the trails were different from the others. Being a fairly small area it was not the same scenery everyday which is something we did not expect. (more)Dylia Sasso

From
€370
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The entire trip was memorable however my favorite aspect to this trip was the people I met. I went on this trip alone however I met some very friendly people who were also staying at the house. And the day trips with Benoit and Corrine felt more like a friend showing me around the area rather than a small group tour, which is something I really loved! Tips? The weather was beautiful when I was there but bring layers because some of the day trips have you going to... (more)Divya Patel

Trekking in Ethiopia, nr Lalibela
From
US $205
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Arrving at the first village on day one of the trek - incredible setting and the most spectacular place to have a cup of tea anywhere in Ethiopia! Tips? Take some alternative nibbles for when you tire of injera. Wear high factor sunscreen - it's high up so it might not feel hot but you burn quicker. Drink lots of water. Local benefits? Yes, we were told 60% of the money goes to the community. Our trekking had minimal impact on the local environment, though... (more)Joe Downie
