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

The contrasts between the different islands in terms of landscapes, settlements and even food was something very unexpected that made this a memorable trip. Although the water was cool in April, swimming during a walk was very refreshing. Being in Greece for the Orthodox Easter was an added bonus. The local celebrations, which featured fireworks, were loud, colorful and great fun to observe.

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

If you can, fly into an island as rough seas can make a long ferry journey most unpleasant.

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

Yes, all of the hotels were locally run and the very good restaurants recommended by the guides were run by locals too. This gave you the feeling that you were helping the local economy by using these and other services such as taxis and buses. It was also a wonderful way to sample the varied local cuisine.

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

This is and excellent walking tour. The guides are welcoming, know the islands and very friendly. The accommodations are all comfortable, with great breakfasts. Walking the beautiful trails and swimming in the turquoise sea with wonderful fellow travelers was a fantastic experience. There is so much to see in these beautiful islands that I feel sure I will be back to see other islands by booking walking tours.

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

The evening walk to the fortress at Exomvourgo on Tinos with views of the surrounding villages and the sun setting across the sea. Also the walk to visit the monastery on Andros, meeting the monks and eating lunch prepared by the abbott was very special. The profusion of wild flowers on the old stone paths, the landscape of stone walls and terraces.

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

Go in May- warm enough to swim, not too hot for walking. Feeling of places getting geared up for the summer but not yet busy.

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

Yes. We stayed in family owned hotels, ate in small restaurants and tavernas.

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

Wonderful, exceeded my expectations. The local guides were superb, every day was well planned and varied, we did a huge amount in one week, but the pace was relaxed with time to appreciate everything.
