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
Amalfi to Sorrento walking holiday in Italy
From
£1,539
including UK flights
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
£555

The most memorable part of the trip was... walking from Yagodina to Trigrad - the path was easy to follow and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. To be so high up in the mountains with nature and eventually descend to overlook Trigrad on the way down was amazing. (more)Morven Jenkins
Walking in the mountains through unspoilt meadows where the only sounds were birdcalls and an occasional sheep bell was balm to the soul. (more)Jo Cohen Jones

One of the best walking trips we have had...great views, changing daily, friendly and interesting... (more)Denise Kibby
