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
Croatian coast walking tours, self guided
From
€520
excluding flights
The most memorable moments were the stunning views, particularly during island walks; being made welcome by local hosts (including an impromptu seat at a pre-wedding party); swimming in the lakes and sea in May; seeing a wild tortoise. (more)George Roffe-Silvester
It was all really enjoyable, Dubrovnik was amazing, the islands were beautiful, Konavle less spectacular but good for comparison purposes. The B&Bs were good, though we did upgrade our room in Mjlet as the one we were given had no view. But all had bathrooms and were quite spacious, two had verandah/balconies and the hosts were very pleasant. (more)Katie Roche
It was all great, but we most enjoyed our day of cycling in Mljet National Park. Overall, this was a 5-star experience, where each of the components and all of our points of contact were also 5-star. The guides, the support staff, the hotels, the touring, and features were all superb. (more)Greg Witt
Amalfi Coast self guided walking vacation
From
£870

The highlight was lunch at Fattoria La Tagliata after completing the Sentierti degli dei walk. Also loved walking into our hotel room, opening the shutters and seeing the amazing views along the coast and down to the sea crashing on the rocks right below our window. Villa Rufolo in the snow was pretty special too. (more)Katie Cole
All of the hiking was wonderful and the beauty of the area was inspiring. (more)Sarah Hannay
Our visits to Paestum and Cetara was the highlight. (more)Richard Butchart

Traveling through the Archipelago was one of the most memorable parts of the vacation. (more)Felicity Bond
There were endless memorable moments: tramping along the Soderlandsleden very well-waymarked trail, through the woods; exploring the islands at Stendorren and Savo; seeing creatures we hadn't see before, such as a slow worm, an otter, a white-tailed sea eagle... (more)Bronwen Davies
We were impressed with the beauty of Sweden and how easy it was to travel around. (more)Sharon Reardon
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

French Alps self guided walking holiday
From
£515
excluding flights
We had a fantastic time staying in Samoens... The walking was amazing at this time of year: alpine meadows, wildflowers, waterfalls, and glacial landscapes, and not too challenging: we ranged between 500m and 970m ascent in a day. We went rafting on the Giffre on our day off, which was also great. (more)Ross Carne
Superb walking country (more)Christine Ansons
Varied expertly guided walks through magnificent scenery (more)Jon Hargreaves

Truly great value and the fact that most of the guests had been before and one set I think 12 times makes its own point. (more)David Edmonds
The beautiful countryside, great food, wine and company. Our hosts Carolyn and Peter were great fun, interesting conversationalists and they run a lovely home. I walked my legs off and swam in the pool every day. (more)Mairead Ryan
The most memorable part was the hospitality of the hosts. (more)Elaine Overnell

Staying at Mount de Volt on the Piano del Tivano - great hosts, fantastic place to stay. (more)Anne Kinderlerer
We loved the scenery and the views of the lake during the walk...It was an interesting experience a lot tougher than we thought but was a great achievement to complete. (more)David Barton

I really did so enjoy my morning yoga sessions and learnt a lot to help me on my yoga journey. The yoga terrace was perfect...I do not have any suggestions as to how it could be better. The level of yoga was just right...not too easy or too difficult. I would certainly come again. (more)Wendy Hilary Evans Lothe

From

We have been on many walks throughout the world, however this is only our second self guided walk, but we thought it was particularly special.

It was a fantastic vacation. I found the walks breath taking and deeply rewarding in terms of the amazing scenery and routes. (more)Lara Clifton

Shakespeares Way & Thames Path walking vacation
From
£595
excluding flights
Memorable parts? During the course of the week one cannot fail to be impressed by the sights seen on the Thames Path, sadly the planned programme didn't allow time to visit these places. Tips? To make sure that the daily walks are within their capabilities, even though the paths are on the level. The Thames path is well maintained but it was noticeable as you approached London, through London and to the east that a number of the signs had been vandalised/pointing in the wrong direction....

It exceeded our expectations....Walking in the high Alpine valleys with the stunning flora and butterflies, seeing ibex, chamois and marmot up close and experiencing the drama of the huge Mercantour peaks all around. (more)Peter Tilbrook
Seeing varied wildlife, including ibex, while walking in Mercantour National Park- which seemed to be virtually empty! (more)Lydia Watkinson
Mercantour hiking vacation in France
From
€550

Memorable parts? A truly special experience in a little corner of the Mercantour where time seems to have stood still. We went with the flow of life at the pace of an ambling donkey. Every detail of the trip was well thought out, and the route guidance booklet (which we carried with us all the time) was spot on. The range of different landscapes we walked through surprised and delighted us. The effectiveness of the route marking was also great. The vacation providers team was hugely... (more)Carolyne Mason
Alentejo self guided hiking in Portugal
From
€860
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Walking beside the sea Tips? Learn some Portuguese - people appreciate it, especially in the countryside. Walking poles helpful by the coast - sand dunes on top of limestone or sandstone cliffs make for slightly harder going. Local benefits? Benefits to local people. I think hotels could do more with recycling and waste (apart from Cato B and B in Carrapateira. Plastic bottles, butter and jam portions, soaps and shampoos provided could be done differently....
