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

The coastal path (Dover - Sandwich in our package) offers spectacular views of sea and countryside, whatever the weather, and serves up little gems of both recent and ancient history along the way.

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

Ensure that you will have enough time to take in all the scenery and explore the historical sites. There are many very good local shops, cafes, restaurants (eg Whits of Walmer, the Cliffe) and pubs as well. Our tour operator organised our package perfectly. Lenox House B&B was very welcoming, comfortable, and friendly and is excellently located to explore the area.

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

Choosing a local B&B, local shops, bakeries, and restaurants certainly benefitted the local economy. Keeping to designated walking paths, respecting nature when walking, and staying local to reduce mileage driven contributed something, we hope, to minimising environmental impact.

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

We were very happy with our walking holiday. Even with the rain, the countryside and coastline remained beautiful. The walks were well-measured, in terms of distances, point of interest, and types of countryside to be seen. The country paths were well tended and well marked. The walking guides provided were up to date, so recourse to the maps wasn't really necessary - except out of habit and curiosity. All the other aspects of the package (incl. accommodation, taxi transfer) were excellent as well. We will certainly recommend Responsible Travel and our tour operator to friends who are thinking of similar holiday breaks.
