1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Summiting Rofanspitze

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Pack your swimming costume as you can swim in the nearby lake! Be sure to take poles, and try both levels of walking trips.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, we used public transport, ate in local restaurants and split into small groups of around ten people each. We re-used our water bottles.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was amazing; the guides were excellent. The only negative was the hotel as there was no vegan food, the internet was slow & charged for, the rooms were not cleaned or replenished well and I had to walk 3 km to an ATM because they would not accept my debit card (denomination in Euros)

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The most memorable part of the holiday was everyone waving me off as I left before the rest of the group. We all got on well and shared many enjoyable moments. The stunning scenery around Trins was absolutely breathtaking, and climbing up to the mountain huts for elderflower water and delicious soup was a truly memorable experience! We all had such a good laugh and really enjoyed each others company, particularly during the evening meals where we shared many a banter and good laugh!! Chris and Bob really went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable from day 1 and throughout the trip. I cannot thank them enough for their kindness and taking care of us all so well. They really couldn't do enough for us. I was particularly grateful to Bob who helped me organise my onward journey from Trins to Zurich early in the holiday, so my mind was at ease to enjoy the trip. I cannot speak highly enough of our two knowledgable and caring tour guides.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Bring walking poles and clothing for all seasons as the tour involves alot of climbing. Good walking boots are essential. Be prepared to join in with the group as the good social interaction we had on this trip made the holiday more enjoyable.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. We used local buses as transport links and were strongly encouraged to purchase our lunch from the local shop and mountain huts. Chris and Bob both spoke German and obviously had built good relationships with local people in the community. We respected the environment and surroundings with guidance from our tour guides.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Top marks! 10/10! Had a fabulous time, mainly down to Bob and Chris' commitment to make sure everyone was happy and having a good time. They really looked after us well and ensured we felt comfortable and at ease from day 1. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wishing to go to Austria. THANK YOU CHRIS AND BOB AND THE OPERATOR
