I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
The views and location by far - and with only a few exceptions the friendliness of the people and their willingness to speak English without any hint of frustration by your lack of Italian.
The Hotel Capodimonte in Sorrento deserves a special mention for its first class service across the board but particularly for its restaurant.
Do not hesitate if you have the footwear for demanding terrain.
The walking guide is detailed and comprehensive - it is wise to... (more)Christine Higgins
The whole trip was memorable... Tuscany is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been. I think the most exciting part of the trip was when we were biking to Pisa and got our first glimpse of the leaning tower. It was so surreal!
The Tuscany route offered is pretty challenging. When we booked this trip was described as light to moderate in difficulty however after finishing the tour and talking to the tour operator we were told it was one of the hardest... (more)Manpreet Anand
Very relaxing break...Yoga outside on the terrace and use of the beautiful private pool (more)carlene rowson
I enjoyed all the week. We loved meeting all the people on our course and the parallel one. It was great having a breakfast waiting for us. (more)Sue Humble
Fantastic....Casperia is very beautiful and so are the people. I can't say one thing in particular was exciting. I just find Casperia enchanting. The staff were more like friends. They were very lovely happy to help people. X (more)Ellen Kay
One of the most memorable parts of my trip was a snorkelling excursion along the Golfo di Orosei. Along the way, as we sailed past all the stunning beaches and caves, Cinzia gave us plenty of information about the geography and nature along the coast, but all in a very humorous and fun way. Once in the crystal clear water we were lucky enough to see a couple of weird and wonderful creatures. (more)Christine Morton
Brilliant scenery, great underwater wildlife and quiet roads. Cala Garone is absolutely idyllic in October. (more)Ann Windle
The diving was very flexible and went at our pace. I'd go back again - I'm hoping to finish some more advanced diving courses there.
We loved it and hope to return some day. We were well looked after; the accommodation was clean and comfortable, adequate rather than elaborate; the excursions were fascinating and well managed with good attention to safety; the staff, especially Cinzia, were friendly, encouraging, well organised and willing to be flexible to meet our requests.

The snorkelling trips in the gulf of Orosei. Stunning coast line and clear blue waters. Cinzia makes a great guide - she tells you lots of information and points out stuff while you're snorkelling. You go in caves and swim or snorkel for as long as you want, getting back in time for lunch. (more)Alan Macdonald
Snorkelling in azure waters amongst tiny blue fish with Eleonora Falcons flying overhead was the most memorable part. (more)Kerry Riddell
The biking in Umbria.
You're going too enjoy this!
All of the services and accommodations were wonderfully done by small local groups and families.
Superb, we would not hesitate to take this holiday again. (more)John Holder
Wonderful! Umbria is a special place and we were happy to experience it in the off season. (more)Lisa Simon
It was fantastic. We would do it again in a heartbeat. (more)Terri Trier
The most memorable part of this holiday was walking through the olive groves from Spello to Assisi which was amazing as was the Spello loop that took us up to a tiny village and then back around to Spello. (more)Lauren Marshall
Vsit to a fish market with a chef, then cooking the fish in his restaurant.
get fit and read some local history.
Made a financial contribution to several small family busineses
One of the best I have taken. (more)Ian Leeper
There were five of us and my three children are aged 16, 18 and 20 and we all had a great time. The beaches are fabulous, much quieter than we thought they would be, locals were very friendly and proud to be Sardinian. (more)Mark Rhodes
Excellent....The actual scuba diving course was both challenging and a lot of fun - the staff were great - very generous with their time and encouragement and the island of Sardinia provided the perfect backdrop (more)Meta Rotenberg
Really really good...Definitely the diving as recommended by Responsible Travel, I'm hoping to go back next year.
Swimming in the sea below the ancient monastery at San Fruttuoso after a hot walk was just magical!
The walks look short, but involve a lot of up and down so are more challenging than they initially appear. But the views make them absolutely worthwhile.
It appeared there was a big effort to preserve the natural areas that were part of the walk.
It was wonderful
Overall we were all very happy with our holiday. Some overnight stays were wonderful, such as in Champex, beautiful setting and great food. (more)Elizabeth Kirchhoff
More awesome than just great!...Everything about this trip was memorable, going up passes crossing over to another country, the ever changing scenery, camaraderie, and able to complete the circuit without cheating, the storm and the animal... The most of all, the mountain huts, the hot showers, comfy beds, flush toilet and the food or should I say feast! I wish we have some of those in Canada. (more)shirry insole
The diversity of flowers. We saw several Lady's Slipper orchids within an hour of arriving in the Dolomites.
We were surprised by the numbers of people following the suggested walks so this is perhaps not a holiday for those wanting to escape from people. It is also not a holiday for those interested in walking as a means to see wildlife rather than just being interested in walking. We were surprised by the lack of available information on wildlife although... (more)Eileen Hardy
