Italian Riviera walking holiday, self guided
Memorable parts? Swimming in the sea below the ancient monastery at San Fruttuoso after a hot walk was just magical! Tips? 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. Local benefits? It appeared there was a big effort to preserve the natural areas that were part of the walk. Overall rating? It was wonderful (more)Lynn Bowie
From 1509 - 1687 including UK flights
Amalfi Coast self guided walking holiday
Memorable parts? There were actually many memorable parts, not least the lovely walks with their wonderful views way off the well beaten tourist track. It was so good to stand high up in the mountains gazing down at endless groves of huge lemons with the sound of a waterfall in our ears. We could see Amalfi so far down there in the distance like a tiny toy town and thinking how great to be up here in peace and solitude whilst others down there are elbowing their way through the crowds and...

Mont Blanc self guided walking holidays
Memorable parts? 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. Tips? I completed the circuit in 11 days, spent around 4 to 6 hours each day in trekking. Although the... (more)shirry insole

Sardinia snorkelling holidays
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. (more)Carole Eyles
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
From 325 - 550 excluding flights
Learn to dive in Sardinia, Italy
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. (more)Eimear Monaghan
From 410 - 830 excluding flights
Walking holidays in Sardinia
Very good memories and a great experience. (more)Anne Ryan
The most memorable part was seeing two Sardinian deer on the track in front of us, especially the one we saw after nearly 5 hours walking in the heat. (more)Phillip Levi
The best memories I take away from this holiday are of the gorgeous springtime Sardinian scenery, eating enormous home-cooked meals at the agricoturismos and of the all-round kindness and generosity of everybody we met. (more)Beth Wyllyams
From 710 - 840 excluding flights
Sardinia diving holidays, Italy
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. (more)Leanne Marshall
From 322 - 630 excluding flights
Dolomites walking holiday in Italy, self guided
Memorable parts? The diversity of flowers. We saw several Lady's Slipper orchids within an hour of arriving in the Dolomites. Tips? 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

Long weekend cooking in Italy
The most memorable parts were: the people, being welcomed by a family (and the incredible 'mater familias' Assuntina), the scenery, the view from my room, the cooking, the food. (more)Marga Peters
The location is idyllic and the views and house are wonderful. The most memorable part was learning to make fresh pasta and being inspired to continue at home, and relaxing in the grounds. (more)Lindsey Evans
The beauty of the place, the warm of the house or maybe most of all the wonderful people we met there. I was looking forward the cooking lessons but we have found much more than that. (more)Anca Stanese
From 400 excluding flights
