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

The most surprising part was becoming aware that the holiday that Responsible Travel had recommended , far from being gentle walks in the upland meadows of Crete, was a serious walking holiday, suited to seasoned hikers - not elderly women interested in wildlife. This only became clear on receipt of the detailed itinaary after insurance and final payment were already made, and flights booked.

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

Try if you can actually speak to someone on the phone, ask for information about your concerns. If you live in the UK it might even be possible to go to an office and speak with someone. Internet communicates only superficial information, and may mislead.

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

Our group stayed in hotels owned by local people in Crete. A Cretan guide would have been good, but we had a (very able, pleasant ) Ukeranian guide.

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

ok

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

The beautiful scenery, excellent guide and amazing Greek food.

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

The walking can be quite challenging due to the terrain, but there are options and you don't need to do all the walks - however I'd recommend them if you can.

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

Stayed in locally run hotels and ate at local restaurants.

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

Excellent!
