We pride ourselves on the happiness of our customers (and it’s our customer reviews that confirm it), and we have a policy designed to hold us accountable to that. So if you feel let down by the service you received, please contact us. We will reach all parties involved to validate the problems and see if and where things went wrong. If the problem was within the control of either ourselves or our local providers, we will offer you a refund that’s proportional to the scale of the problem. To help us make this policy work fairly and properly for everyone, it is of paramount importance that:
- If something is not as expected or you need assistance, please first contact our local office/representative at the coordinates provided in your pre-departure info pack. They are usually available 24/7 and ready to assist you and immediately fix the problem.
- If you have an issue with an accommodation or transport provider (e.g. you are not given the type of room you booked), the best approach would be first to try to liaise directly with them. If they are not cooperating, please call our local office/representative. In any case, it is of paramount importance that you raise the issue at the moment; it is much harder or sometimes impossible to remedy such problems post factum.

Our Featured Adventures
A large part of the Amalfi Coast and Mountains walking holiday is, of course, along the Amalfi coast, and it includes all the famous coastal villages: Amalfi, Atrani, Ravello, Praiano and the scenic Positano. But you will also walk in real mountain scenery, through chestnut forests and picturesque countryside with beautiful terraced lemon groves and vineyards.
Our Slovakian Alps: High Tatras self guided walking holiday lets you explore Slovakia’s highest mountain range, which is also the first Slovak national park established in 1949. There are numerous valleys, glacial lakes called pleso, and mountain peaks; accommodation is in comfortable hand-picked 3 and 4-star hotels.
Rota Vicentina: Fishermen’s Trail Highlights includes the coastal part of Portugal’s famous Rota Vicentina long distance trail. It follows some of the best preserved coastline in Europe through the beautiful national park in the Alentejo region. Well-signposted paths will take you along impressive cliffs, down to deserted beaches and secret sandy coves, accessible only on foot.
The Elbe Sandstone Mountains are one of the most beautiful regions in Germany, located just a few miles from Dresden. In 2006, the 115-kilometre long Painter’s Path (Malerweg) was inaugurated. This is a moderate to strenuous trek, appropriate for experienced hikers, which takes in the entire Malerweg Trail in just 8 days.
Take a walk through the narrow corridors of “rock cities”, exciting rock labyrinths, and splendid viewpoints. Explore castles, ancient ruins, waterfalls, and stunning rock phenomena. Visit Trosky Castle – the symbol of the Bohemian Paradise. Finish your Bohemian Paradise holiday in Prague with plenty of time to get to know the City of a Hundred Spires.
Trace the footsteps of Orpheus through the mighty Devil’s Throat cave in the Tirgrad Gorge, said to be the mythical Hall of Hades, walk to Chaira Lakes and then take in the splendour of the Canyon of Waterfalls before moving to the comfort of your spa hotel.
Our Tour du Mont Blanc Highlights in Comfort walking holiday will lead you from France to Italy and Switzerland, taking in the best sections of the Tour du Mont Blanc circuit while we transfer your main luggage. Overnights are in nice 3 or 4-star hotels and mountain lodges with private rooms on all nights. In the evenings, you will enjoy delicious French, Swiss and Italian meals.
