Amalfi coast easy walking holiday, Italy
Memorable parts? It is difficult to identify just one part as the whole holiday was wonderful. I think the views from the last two walks were spectacular - Valle delle Ferriere and Sentiero degli Dei. Tips? Be prepared for hundreds of steps but well worth the climb up and down as every view is stunning. Local benefits? Definitely, in the attention to using local restaurants, shops and public transport. Overall rating? It was amazing. June and Aubrey are welcoming,... (more)Hannah Wilson

Amalfi to Sorrento walking holiday in Italy
Memorable parts? 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. Tips? 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

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 £1199 including UK flights
Amalfi Coast walking holiday, Italy
The hotel was really lovely with a warm and attentive atmosphere and very good simple food. Our Guide was very special and without her we would not have seen or understood the beautiful areas in which we walked, the area is outstanding and it was a very nice group. (more)Therese Moore
Very good. We has a great time and came back fitter than we were! (more)janet fung

Walking holiday in Tuscany
Very good!....It was lovely to be looked after by the family at Braccicorti who housed and fed us wonderfully. Sara our guide took us to shops in the local area who sold local produce as well and we could buy some things like home grown sun dried tomatoes and red wine from the farm we were staying on. (more)Sue Haseltine
The only holiday I've even gone on that I would do again. (more)Mary Watkin
Most memorable was reaching the top of Monte Prado, the highest point in Tuscany and no other group in sight. The best kept secret, long may it continue. I plan to go back! (more)Marie Therese Filippi

Tuscany holiday, Italy
I enjoyed it immensely. The whole week was organised in a really excellent way and was varied and fascinating. The company was great and we all gelled very quickly. (more)Linda Marlow
Great swimming pool at the farm cottages, freezing water but still went in every day. Lovely scenery, every day sunny but not too hot. (more)Kathy Cowbrough
The most memorable part of the holiday was seeing Michelangelo's David, he is amazing, no man could ever live up to that!! Ach no, the whole trip was fantastic, I enjoyed every minute. The food was absolutely beautiful. (more)Johanna kavanagh

Mont Blanc self guided walking holidays
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
From €665 excluding flights

Sicily walking holiday, Sicilian Volcanoes
Memorable parts? The optional trip on Etna was very interesting, even though we couldn't get to the top - trip notes need to be updated. Stromboli would have been great if it hadn't been cloudy! Tips? Be prepared for a lot of boat travel around the islands. Local benefits? Local people benefitted - restaurants & tour companies. Overall rating? Good! (more)Hazel Geatches
From £1169 - £1299 including UK flights
Bergamo circular walking tour in Italy
Memorable parts? All enjoyable. No one thing outstanding above others. But accommodation, food and hospitality in Briolo was very good. And staying with Marco and father at Prati Parini was unique. Tips? Some of the walking is quite strenuous for over 60s. Some on roads a bit boring. And some downhills on clay treacherous when wet. Essential to have good equipment, boots and waterproofs. Local benefits? Very much benefitted locally owned and run b&Bs. We enjoyed these... (more)Andrew Hollas
From €625 - €710 excluding flights
Western Dolomites walking tour in Italy
Memorable parts? Despite having a mobility problem, I managed 3 out of 4 walks. They were amazing and Rudy was invaluable to give me the confidence to carry on even on some quite hard terrain. The hotel turned out to be experts in gluten free cooking and so the other perfect half was the ability to eat enough food to fuel the walking. Also the food was delicious. And the staff were lovely. Tips? If you have coeliac disease go on this holiday, you won’t have to worry about cross contamination... (more)Margaret Pomfret
From £979 - £1149 including UK 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
Puglia and Basilicata walking holiday in Italy
Memorable parts? Each place we walked allowed us to absorb the feeling, the history and the culture of the country. It was great having a leader to look after us as we couldn't speak a word of the local language and knew nothing. We went to one beautiful, wild beach where a pine forest fringed the sand - it went on for miles and no one else was there - and the swimming was glorious! And the gorge was awe-inspiring ..... Tips? Be careful ordering your meal on your nights out - you... (more)Checkie Wood
From £1099 - £1149 including UK 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
From £1049 - £1259 including UK flights

Amazing, it blew us away completely. We will definitely return, hopefully with family and friends in tow next time! (more)Natalie Ball
Best holiday we've ever had. Properly relaxing... We felt very looked after by Alberto who served us breakfast every morning and dinner every evening. He always had plenty of time to talk about the local area. (more)Alison Jenkins
