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
From £1359 - £1588 including UK flights
Amalfi coast easy walking holiday, Italy
Walking in the hills above Amalfi was very special, and it was lovely seeing some of the little villages tourists generally don't visit. (more)Helen Rankin
It was amazing. June and Aubrey are welcoming, knowledgeable and experienced. They made the holiday a truly memorable experience. Nothing was too much trouble. (more)Hannah Wilson
From £1070 - £1099 excluding flights
Pisa to Lucca walking holiday in Italy
Memorable parts? Experiencing rural Tuscany, in particular Buti and Calci. Tips? Some parts of the walk are quite steep, be prepared for some scrambling! Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Highly enjoyable. (more)Carol Quinn
From €480 - €700 excluding flights
Italian Alps inn accommodation in Piedmont, Italy
A completely recommendable choice for people who are looking for an active holiday supported by some rather superior home comfort! (more)Stephen Mitchell
Gosh, difficult to say which part out of so many! I am reviewing the holiday five months later and still remember everything about our stay here. The delicious food and warm hospitality from the hosts, the beautiful scenery and the long walks will stay with me forever, I think. (more)Bill Reid
The kindness of our hosts, the nice balanced way they shared and included us in their individual enthusiasm and warmth, the pertinent information about local and Piemonte region, without coming too close were most memorable. Excellent holiday. (more)Anna Welsing
From €60 per couple per night
Amalfi Coast walking holiday, Italy
A really good week's walking with spectacular scenery, a great guide and a really friendly hotel with great food. (more)John Savage
Excellent! (more)Andy Jackson
Superb! As it was predominantly a walking holiday our impact on the environment was reduced. We also supported several local businesses, putting something back into the economy. (more)Barry Williams
From £949 - £1269 including UK flights
Lake Como family walking holiday, Italy
This was a very well organised holiday, all of its aspects were effective and co-ordinated. In fact a thoroughly enjoyable week. (more)Nicholas Yates
The most memorable part was the whole hiking tour all together, being able to accomplish it as a family, experiencing the local hospitality and unbelievably splendid nature! We΄ve had the time of our lives! Found our paradise at Lake Como, and will return, for sure! (more)Jeanette Reinholdtsen
From €575 - €830 excluding flights
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
From £929 - £1349 including UK flights
Tuscany holiday, Italy
It was a really great holiday - just what I was looking for - staying in a lovely place, with a small group of pleasant people, in amazing countryside and with a guide who spoke Italian, obviously loved the place, looked after us really well and must be the best guide there is! (more)Jill Simpson
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
From £999 - £1199 including UK flights
Amalfi Coast self guided walking holiday
Most memorable - the views and the people. Both spectacular! (more)Lorraine May

WONDERFUL. WOULD DO IT AGAIN. (more)Barbara Zoltick
From £545 - £827 excluding flights
Snowshoeing holiday in the Dolomites
Excellent. Our guide was possibly the best holiday/mountain guide I have ever encountered. (more)Paul Chinnock
Most memorable was the scenery, snow, sunshine, activity and a great guide. 4 stars. (more)Andrea Stirling
From £1399 including UK flights
Tuscany tours, walking and wine tasting in Italy
Memorable parts? Viewing the city of Florence from the Viewpoint of Piazza Michaelangelo Tips? Come prepared for any kind of weather. We had wind, rain, thick cloud and hot sunshine. Local benefits? Very much so. We stayed in a very lovely converted farmhouse, ate in local restaurants, shopped in small towns and villages, and tasted the local Chianti Classico in several wineries. Overall rating? A wonderful mixture of fabulous walks through forests and vineyards,... (more)Susan Sargeant
From £949 - £1169 including UK flights

Bergamo circular walking tour in Italy
It was a fantastic holiday. I found the walks breath taking and deeply rewarding in terms of the amazing scenery and routes. (more)Lara Clifton
Walking was fabulous and the appetite for good local fare was a perfect, beer in hand, table spread for an evening meal to end our day...we were very well guided. (more)Hazell Penn
Wonderful! I would highly recommend this specific walk to anyone. Etien with the holiday company was very helpful with answering questions and providing information. I plan to use Responsible Vacation again. (more)Pam Fulkerson

Best bits: Hikes to Vulcano, Stromboli and Etna (more)Christine Lattey
Good!...The optional trip on Etna was very interesting, even though we couldn't get to the top (more)Hazel Geatches
From £1199 - £1369 including UK 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 - £1199 including UK flights
Umbria walking holiday, Italy

From €640 - €700 excluding flights
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 €965 excluding flights
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 £1499 - £1699 including UK 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 - £1329 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 £999 - £1219 including UK flights
Sardinia farmhouse accommodation
It was great holiday. Highly recommend staying here for either couples or families. Alberto is a great host. It was a relaxing holiday (more)Aoife Scallan
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
From €29 - €50 per person per night
