Most enjoyed - Warm weather in November. Better trails than I was expecting. Nice scenery. Excellent food. The pace of the walking was nice. There was time to take pictures and look at plants along the trail.

Really good introduction to the beauty and landscape of Gran Canaria. Size of group really beneficial in terms of gauging length of walks and start/finish times for treks. Would recommend this holiday to anyone interested in seeing more than the beaches of Gran Canaria.
Raymond very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very understanding of group requirements. Really benefitted from his local knowledge to be able to explore off the beaten track trails. very attentive with regards to travel arrangements and pickup points for airport journeys.
Thoroughly enjoyed the variety of trails completed. Enjoyed using locally recommended restaurants and bars.

This was an excellent holiday. Staying in Tejeda was a key reason for its success. I most enjoyed the walking; the leaders; the rest of the group.
Raymond and Maria (our leaders) were great. Maria in particular was a delightful person. KE office staff remain a strength.

Great brochure and website. Easy to use and friendly staff. On the trip we had 3 different hotels. Each very different from the other but all clean with excellent food.
Our leaders Ray and Maria were fabulous! From the moment they picked us up from the airport to dropping us back they did everything possible to make sure we were happy and enjoying our trek. They were great trek leaders out walking and we enjoyed their company socially. Great fun.
The trip was better than my expectations. The scenery was breathtaking at times and much more scenic than I envisaged. I have trekked with KE twice before and look forward to the next one.

This was my first walking holiday with a group and enjoyed every minute of it.The balance of walking and free time was just right.
The variety of the locations enabled you to get a good feel of the island. Great views up in the mountains. The pace of the day suited me just fine.

This trip exceeded our expectations in terms of the walking and magnificent scenery. The length of the days were right, allowing enough free time for the evening.
Ray was always clear about the options that were available during the day and went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed our holiday.

We loved the holiday - I'm used with BIG walks (GR20, High Level Haute Route recently) but was very concerned that my wife (who secretly wanted a hotel holiday) might not enjoy it. She has never stopped talking about it & is looking to undertake another walking holiday in 2014 thanks to KE, Ray & Maria.
