Reviews for Maiori to Positano Amalfi Coast walking holiday


review 4 Apr 2018

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

The villages early on are very nice. Particularly Maiori and Minori, both felt untouristy unlike some of the later villages. I loved exploring all of the little lanes and still seeing normal life being lived. Watching the Easter celebrations during the week. A lot of the culture is exotic by Northern European standards.

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

Leave early for the walk of the gods. We were up there around midday and it was very busy.

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

Not particularly. At least two of our hotels changed our towels during our stay - even though we only stayed one night. Public transport was well promoted.

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

I really enjoyed the holiday, however, I'm not sure if I benefited from using an agency for this walking holiday. A lot of the information I was given was either wrong or confusing. I use an agency to make my holiday simpler - I have organised plenty of holidays (walking and otherwise) in the past on my own. I expect to just turn up on an agency holiday, follow my instructions and have an easy trip. It felt like the cost of the holiday only really covered the hotels and breakfast. We still had to do lots of the planning and route solving ourselves on the trip. The holiday was great, but just not great value for money!

Dear James, Thank you for your comments. With regard to the hotels having changed your towels, since you stayed just for one night in each hotel, we cannot see how this could be avoided. The problem with one route was unavoidable due to a landslide about which you were notified with alternative suggestions from our local guide. We tailored this holiday to suit your budget and our notes and cultural commentaries have been highly valued by our clients. You mentioned how you particularly you enjoyed the villages of Maiori and Minori, both being off the beaten track and not usually included in walking holidays. We are pleased to know you enjoyed your holiday on the spectacular Amalfi Coast. Best wishes, June
