terrain before doing the tour

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
It was an enjoyable experience but we were not expecting the walks were going to be on trails rather than rocky paths. In some cases, it was a bit of bush
bashing. There we only the two of us o the tour and we are in our 70's hence we felt the trip was hard going (except in Ithaca)

Dear Eric and Helen,
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed the guesthouses, the food, meeting local people and experiencing the local culture. I'm sorry to hear that you found the terrain hard. Our guide informed us that you wanted to walk for shorter distances and prefer easy walks. Because it was just the two of you, we adapted the walks to suit you.
All the walks we organised for you are considered easy by international standards. The terrain though can be rocky and depending on the season (especially after it rains) there can be weed overgrowing. That's why we recommend people to wear boots and have walking poles. We will strengthen our copy and the information we send our future guests to make sure this is clearer. Thank you once again for joining us.
