This trip was absolutely excellent. It was a divine setting and the food was amazing. The support crew were outstanding. The pace and itinerary were absolutely ideal for me and what I'd booked. There was great care and attention to detail made, making the whole trip brilliant. our guide Lindsay Cannon was outstanding. She taught me (I've walked for 25 years ) a couple of tips and really knows her stuff. Plus she has a lovely manner too. Words in a brochure cannot do justice to the hospitality we received and the walking experience. Thanks both to the venue and the guide. A truly amazing holiday.

The hiking was great. Very rewarding hiking to peaks. Great weather helped a lot. Nice van to ride in to the trail heads. The villa was a great escape. I had been traveling in large Italian cities for 2 weeks prior. The villa was a great haven. Lovely rooms and living and kitchen area.

We received the usual friendly efficiency we've come to expect from KE office staff. On the trip we had a high standard of accommodation and food even by KE standards! Our guide Lindsey was a great enthusiast and motivator who gets the best out of the group. I wasn't keen on the day walks idea but they were stunning and was forced to revise my opinion.

The walking was excellent and very varied. The farmhouse accommodation was unique and very enjoyable. Lindsay was an excellent leader and we felt very well cared for.

I loved it and feel very fit and rested. The holiday surpassed my expectations. Words in a brochure can't do justice to the hospitality we received and the walking experience thanks both to the venue, the guide and the area. Lindsay Cannon is outstanding as a guide. She taught me (I've walked for 25 years) a couple of tips and really knows her stuff.
Lovely manner too.
Divine setting, best food on any trip KE and others. Support crew outstanding. Pace and itinerary ideal for me and what I'd booked.

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I usually go for more 'hardcore' treks but on this occasion I was looking for a more relaxing experience. The whole week (hiking, scenery, accommodation, food, company) all met and far exceeded my expectations. I can't recommend this trip enough. A relaxing change for seasoned Trekkers or a great introduction for the uninitiated. I enjoyed everything - amazing accommodation, great food, good walking, great guide. The trip met and exceeded my expectations! Our guide Lindsay was fabulous. Very, very personable. Great fun and a true outdoor professional. Always totally aware of the needs of each member of the group. She made the trip a real success! Fabulous accommodation at Lavacchio. A real gem. Luxurious, but homely. Ailsa and Jamie were extremely good hosts and made us feel like personal guests without being over-bearing. The quality of food was amazing! Delicious, healthy, homemade and homegrown where possible.

The holiday was really enjoyable and it exceeded expectations. I most enjoyed the walks in fantastic mountains, the leadership, the company of fellow walkers, the perfect weather. I was really pleased to have Lindsey as my leader again. Once again she was excellent and helped to make the trip fantastic! Great accommodation in beautiful surroundings. Jamie and Ailsa worked hard to make us very welcome at Lavacchio.
