Well organised walking adventure

6 of us all in our 50's frequent walkers wanted a walking holiday somewhere remote and beautiful, Zagoria and Meteora did not disappoint us. All the travel arrangements worked very well, all accommodation was small local and friendly.Walking directions were extremely good and detailed, all we had to do was follow our instructions to have a days walk in splendour and an evening in comfort. Arranging the itinerary was easy as it was possible ...

All the travel arrangements worked very well, all accommodation was small local and friendly.Walking directions were extremely good and detailed, all we had to do was follow our instructions to have a days walk in splendour and an evening in comfort. Arranging the itinerary was easy as it was possible to speak to people who had done the walk .It was possible to customise it to suit our requirements. Our holiday was graded medium to hard and we felt this was exactly right. The company also rang to wish us a good holiday !

Rating for tour operator:

'On foot holidays' operate an efficient but very friendly and competent company. I would not consider another operator for a walking holiday.

Surpassing our high expectations

We went to Zagoria in northern Greece close to the Albanian border via Corfu. Whilst Corfu is lovely Zagoria was the true highlight of our holiday. A ferry across to the mainland was an enjoyable start not a hindrance. The bus station very close which we enjoy much more than taxis, though from Ionina we had to take a Txai as there are no buses up to the mountain villages. On foot did us proud, as they placed us in 3 wonderful villages Kapesevo, ...

We went to Zagoria in northern Greece close to the Albanian border via Corfu. Whilst Corfu is lovely Zagoria was the true highlight of our holiday. A ferry across to the mainland was an enjoyable start not a hindrance. The bus station very close which we enjoy much more than taxis, though from Ionina we had to take a Txai as there are no buses up to the mountain villages. On foot did us proud, as they placed us in 3 wonderful villages Kapesevo, Monodendri and Papingo. All our hosts were charming, warm and welcoming (and spoke good English!!). Our rooms delightful, but not plush.....thank goodness! they expected us to enter in our clean walking boots, All the food we were provided with was of a very high standard and utterly delicious. But the core of the holiday was in the walking. Country we had not experienced before, thhe Vikos Gorge was a huge feat for us oldies, but all the lother days were just as interesting both from the geological, fauna and flora. Those wonderful stone villages and their history will remain with us for many years, as will those beautifully built steps leading up to them.

On foot makes everything so easy for us. We did NO homework before our holiday as ther wasn't time or engery. It didn't matter as they provided us with everything we needed and more ( we didn't need a dogdazer for fearsome dogs thank goodness!!) Our route information is 100 percent reliable and accurate. Transfers were smooth and easy, our baggage appeared each night as if by magic And everyone that is associat ed with On Foot are good people and go out of their way to help or answer questions. This has been our 5th holiday with On Foot. At the moment we are able to manage the Medium/hard, although we take longer than the timings. That is partly because the routes we are given are so magnificent we make them last the whole day as we want to savour everything I also would like to thank On Foot for their kindness when we had to cancel a holiday very late for family reasons. Rather than facing the hassle of insurance, they suggested we leave the money with them and we take a holiday as soon as it suited us. We were so grateful as paperwork, re insurance etc. at that time was the last thing we needed. It may be a small company, I can only say it is personal

Brilliant family walking holiday in the Zigora region N Greece

Our first experience of a family walking holiday that exceeded all expectations of scenery, wildlife, food and hospitality. Over 10 days we visited Corfu, then by ferry to the mainland to Kapesovo, Monodendri through the stunning Vikos Gorge to Papingo and a fabulous walk to the Dragon Lake through a carpet of wild flowers. By two day detour we walked to the monasteries on Meteora (a world heritage site) and then home via Corfu. Each walk was ...

By two day detour we walked to the monasteries on Meteora (a world heritage site) and then home via Corfu. Each walk was carefully planned by On Foot Holiday in smallest detail in medium/ difficult terrain of 10 kms and ranging from 3-6 hrs challenging for middle aged legs but so rewarding by the end of the day.

Rating for tour operator:

On Foot Holidays provided an excellent service and more importantly detailed route instructions maps, guidebooks and further reading. The choice of hotels were excellent and thier local representatives more than anxious to help and ensure our stay with them was the very best experience.

Walking in unspoilt Greece

It was a gem! Starting with a couple of days in Corfu, followed by a short ferry trip to the mainland and Ali Pasha's stronghold of Ioannina, then on to the beautiful, unspoilt Zagori area of northern Greece with its stunning stone villages and spectacular Vikos Gorge, and ending amongst the bizarre limestone pinnacles and ancient monasteries of Meteora. Walking is such a fabulous way to get off the beaten track, leave the crowds behind and ...

Walking is such a fabulous way to get off the beaten track, leave the crowds behind and really experience this part of the world. For independent walkers this was the perfect balance of interesting terrain, quality organisation and support, and comfortable accommodation.

Rating for tour operator:

Very efficient and responsive. We were lucky enough to be able to take longer than the advertised time for this trip and On Foot tailored an extended itinerary specially for us. They provide extremely comprehensive information including very accurate and detailed notes for each days walking. They get it just right in terms of accommodation and support. All arrangements like luggage transfer, transport etc work like clockwork. This is the second year we have used them and they will definitely be our first port of call in the future.
