review 12 Jun 2014

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

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 .....

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

Be careful ordering your meal on your nights out - you only need ONE dish - not three! Make sure you have walking boots or shoes with a good grip, a light, breathable rain coat and a good back-pack. If you are single, the rooms are too small to share - take the single supplement - well worth your while. If you are vegetarian, be prepared for no vegetables! The markets are full of them but the restaurants dont serve them!

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

YES - very good

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

I really enjoyed it - nice way to get to absorb the vibe of a country and quite nicely low key
