Exploring the cultures and beauty of the Alpes Maritme

I have not used a tour operator before, but am confident that I was treated magnificently by On Foot. From the delivery of my package for my self-guided walk, to the introductory phone conversation with my local contact in France, I was cared for and helped with my travels. The hotels chosen by On Foot were wonderful - small, family-owned and friendly. I enjoyed wonderful friendly hosts at these hotels, and some excellent regional food. The ...

I have not used a tour operator before, but am confident that I was treated magnificently by On Foot. From the delivery of my package for my self-guided walk, to the introductory phone conversation with my local contact in France, I was cared for and helped with my travels. The hotels chosen by On Foot were wonderful - small, family-owned and friendly. I enjoyed wonderful friendly hosts at these hotels, and some excellent regional food. The scenery in this part of Provence is wild and dramatic. My highlight were the villages pendent, with their narrow, stone pathways and ancient churches.

I felt like I had personal attention from the various people at On Foot. When I emailed On Foot with a question about the GPS software provided by the company, someone from On Foot almost immediately phoned me (I live in the US) to make sure I received the help I needed.

Exceeding expectations

We chose a self-guided mountain trekking holiday using On Foot Holidays route maps and instructions as we did not wish to join a group. We trekked through the Alpes Maritimes for 7 days from high up in the mountains at La Brigue down to the Mediterranian Sea at Menton. The walk involved extensive hill climbs with rewarding views of beautiful scenery and the awesome Roya river far below. Although quite tough the walking was exhilarating and the ...

The walk involved extensive hill climbs with rewarding views of beautiful scenery and the awesome Roya river far below. Although quite tough the walking was exhilarating and the sense of personal achievement was terrific. We are looking forward to doing another one next year with the same company.

We chose On Foot Holidays from many operators offering similar tours on the internet because of their impressive presentation, holiday descriptions and itineraries and the glowing reviews posted by their clients. The package of maps, route guides and terrain descriptions was excellent. They arranged our hotel bookings in charming mountain inns and also arranged for our luggage to be transferred from hotel to hotel leaving us only carrying a small day pack on the walk. All arrangements worked smoothly . The safety contacts they have in place and the fact that the operators have themselves walked the route was also very reassuring.

A brilliant holiday

We walked in the Alpes Maritime. The walking was fantastic, great routes and instructions. The scenery was amazing. Hosts at the various B and B's were welcoming and some were exceptional.

On Foot Holidays were friendly and efficient. The holiday pack with maps and directions was the best we have ever seen in numerous holidays of this type.

From the Alps to the Mediterranean - adventure with reassurance

My brother (70) and I (80) walked from La Brigue to Menton, mainly on mountain tracks. Each day had a different character, but each was interesting and led us through mountain villages, chestnut groves and alpine meadows. Overnights were in interesting historic towns and villages, with a rest day in Sospel where, in the morning, my brother sketched and I explored the old part of the town. In the afternoon we visited the impressive subterranean ...

My brother (70) and I (80) walked from La Brigue to Menton, mainly on mountain tracks. Each day had a different character, but each was interesting and led us through mountain villages, chestnut groves and alpine meadows. Overnights were in interesting historic towns and villages, with a rest day in Sospel where, in the morning, my brother sketched and I explored the old part of the town. In the afternoon we visited the impressive subterranean Maginot Line fort. The overnight accommodation was varied but, in every case, of very good value for the money. The food was excellent and the packed lunches a challenge! Finishing in style at the Princess et Richmond in Menton was a real bonus! The backup from On Foot Holidays was excellent and their support pack removed any anxiety we might have felt at being on our own. Route timings were realistic.

A self-guided walk in the lovely Alpes Maritimes region of the south of France.

We stayed in Nice for a couple of nights and then travelled by train to the start of the walk. Each day for 6 days as we walked down the well-signed route we stayed in B&Bs that also provided packed lunch and dinner when the options were otherwise limited or non-existent. Bookings were made efficiently and all locations were very pleasant. Hosts were, for the most part, also very charming and helpful and were always pleasant. Luggage was transferred ...

The whole experience was relaxing and we were able to focus on the walking without having to worry about other logistical issues.

Mountain to the sea walking holiday

We have been on several holidays with OnFoot but this year we did their Alpes Maritime walk. We went in July and the weather was a bit too hot for us but it is marked in the brochure as not being the ideal time. The service from the office is wonderful. The staff know the holidays and the personal care they give including a phone call the day before departure and a phone call on the first day of the holiday from the local rep makes you feel ...

We have been on several holidays with OnFoot but this year we did their Alpes Maritime walk. We went in July and the weather was a bit too hot for us but it is marked in the brochure as not being the ideal time. The service from the office is wonderful. The staff know the holidays and the personal care they give including a phone call the day before departure and a phone call on the first day of the holiday from the local rep makes you feel very cared for. The walking notes are accurate and beautifully presented in daily packs. The hotels are always interesting and give an insight into local life which would be very difficult to find independently. They vary in standard - from the one star in La Brigue where we really enjoyed being part of the local village to the very comfortable 4 star hotel in Menton.

Rating for tour operator:

Very caring and, even more importantly, very knowledgeable. I feel I have met them all and really appreciate the individual care and attention we receive.
