Michele and Giorgia were wonderful leaders. It was nice having 2 at least for part of the trip. Michele was amazing. The picnic lunches were delicious with so manay homemade (by Mama) and local delicacies. Michele showed us the real Italy and his love for his hometown of Agerola. He also shared all of his group photos of us...something no other leader has ever done.
I really enjoyed this trip. The group was small and very pleasant. The walks, especially on the Amalfi Coast were amazing with incredible scenery and vistas through woodland with spectacular waterfalls, along the sea and through villages into the quaint although sometimes a bit touristy towns. Michele really made the trip with his knowledge of his hometown of Agerola and the delicious picnic lunches he packed with homemade local delicacies and fruit and walnuts from his own trees.

Simona our leader was excellent, she paced the trip well and we had a good amount of free time. She explained a lot about the history and environment. She provided good lunches and was pleasant and friendly.

This holiday was one of the best holidays we have ever had. We are already looking at the KE brochure for our next. We have recommended this holiday to everyone we know.The hotel in Naples was clean and tidy. They were very welcoming and it was very kind of them to let us store our bags there on the final day. The hotel in Agerola was fantastic. The room was large and clean. The staff were very welcoming and made us feel like part of the family. We can't rate the hotel highly enough. We had a fantastic time.Davide was brilliant. He took time to explain the area and the history of the sites we visited. The pace of the walk was just just right. He made the holiday relaxing and enjoyable. On the final day he stayed with us after the offical end of the trip and showed us Naples.

Simona, our local leader, was just fantastic in all the ways. I rate her really highly. I had the most fantastic time and the walking was superb. I have travelled with you before and trust your services!

Being very interested in history this trip was perfect for me to gain knowledge from our expert guide on Pompei and see the sites I have read so much about - and throwing this in with the easy going walking made it a great week out of the office!

We were blessed with the most beautiful weather and the trek up Vesuvius will be a memorable day for me as the views are just a delight. Swimming in the sea is also always a bonus.

Could not fault Stefano, he was excellent all round regarding logistics, altering timetable to suit weather conditions. Really good guide, knowledgeable and friendly.
I enjoyed every minute of this holiday. The trip to Pompei and the walk to Vesuvius were excellent, but I enjoyed the whole trip from start to finish.
This trip was everything I expected.
I found KE on the Internet and chose them as I did not have to sort logistics myself.

Stefano was an amazing guide - very knowledgeable, obviously passionate about his job and delivering a good service.
The walking was particularly enjoyable and the family run friendly hotel in Agerola was superb. The food (both our al fresco lunches and dinners) were wonderful. Quality local produce provided each day which was scrumptious.
I picked KE Adventure because my son recommended your company as he was very happy with your services on a trip to Nepal.

We only booked this holiday a week & a half in advance and we were pleased with the efficiency at such short notice.
This was our first experience of not only a KE holiday, but a group holiday. We enjoyed the experience and will definately be looking at this type of holiday again.
We would really like to praise both of the guides that were attached to our group on this holiday - nothing was ever too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure we were having a good time. Their vast local knowledge gave a real insight into the areas we visited.

This was a lovely trip, made by an excellent guide - Salvatore and a really friendly Family run hotel. We were felt part of the Family for our stay. Probably more steps than we were expecting, especially around the villages.
