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

Hiking the coastal trail along the Costa Brava in Catalonia and coming upon one gorgeous cove or beach after another. It was truly stunning.

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

Book this trip in the shoulder season. We traveled the second week of May, and the weather was great. There were not many people on the trail, in the towns, or at the beaches. Wear a good supportive pair of hiking shoes or boots. We found hiking poles very helpful. If taking a train to and from Gerona be sure to get to the station a full 30 minutes prior to departure.

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

Yes - we were booked at small local hotels, some of which had their own restaurants. We ate local tapas, seafood, and enjoyed local wines. We met many local people who were friendly and appreciative of this particular connection and support from touring folks.

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

Excellent, memorable, beautiful, and way fun! Shelley and Mark are new owners and very committed to supporting their clients and building their business. They are wonderful people.
