The hotel accommodation was better than expected and the food was varied, and of good quality. The support staff were very helpful and even offered water top-up en route if required. The pace of the walking was flexible to cater for those who preferred to walk at a slower pace or take photographs. The tour leader was very patient with the different levels and interests of people on the trip. The performance of the tour leader and his staff (assuming this to be the local agent on La Gomera in this case)was exemplary and they could not have done more to ensure the success of the trip.
The holiday was graded correctly in my view and it provided a varied and enjoyable walking trip in an interesting and beautiful landscape.

Couldn't fault the accommodation & food. Routes & pace - all excellent. The local agent was very enthusiastic and knowlegable about the area in explaining the history & geology of the region - first class.The weather was perfect for walking, not too hot with a nice breeze most days. The holiday was excellent and I will certainly be doing another one asap.
I enjoyed all the holiday, but particuarly the beautiful scenery, and enjoyed the company of the other people on the holiday. The walking from one hotel to the other was well planned and not too strenuous, with many stops of interest along the way. It was also nice to have breakfast, lunch & dinner organised and included - saved having to search for places to eat.
As it was my first KE trip it met all my expectations and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed travelling with such a diverse and interesting group and such an excellent local agent, who brought La Gomera alive.
