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

Whilst in Corfu we booked a day trip to Albania which was very interesting and the couriers were excellent. We loved the mountain areas of NW Greece.

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

Get out into the Greek interior.

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

It will have benefited the Greek economy. Also the area of the Vicos gorge was a unrecorded site and rightly so. It was beautifully maintained and provided much info for visitors.

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

Very varied and interesting.

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

The opportunity to undertake self-guided walking in areas of fantastic and dramatic mountain countryside, having been thoroughly and expertly prepared by the local tour guide. Our trek to Gamila peak, one of the highest mountains in Greece was truly breath-taking as was our walk through the Vikos Gorge.

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

Explain what level of walking you are comfortable to undertake and the tour staff are happy to modify the walking programme for you accordingly.

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

Yes. We stayed each night in small family run hotels and guest houses. They were extremely friendly and helpful. The food served was superb and the vast majority of ingredients used were locally sourced.

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

Absolutely excellent. I would very highly recommend to anyone looking for superb walking , beautiful food , unbelievable scenery and very friendly and helpful hosts. A brilliant holiday thank you.

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

Excellent holiday, we enjoyed it all - highlights were Meteora, where we did a hike to view the monasteries and walking in the Vikos Gorge, stunning, our photos don't capture the majesty of it all.

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

Take a portable GPS! The directions were good as far as they went, but the Greeks seem to be very sparing with their signposts, it took us some time to find our way in and out of Ioanina (having stopped to eat and go to the bank) in both directions! We booked a guided walk at Meteora and that was definitely worth doing rather than just arriving at the monasteries by car.

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

We would hope so, all the accommodation was family run, all very welcoming and anxious we should get the best from the area. We only used the car to get from place to place and did lots of walks. The area is clearly trying to increase the number of visitors with more hotels etc., but we hope it doesn't get overwhelmed.

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

Epic!!
