Great Walking Holiday in Andalucia over New YearFind more about On Foot Holidays - Andalucia >
Our week's holiday in Andalucia was great – blue skies, sunny, but cold in the shade, beautiful scenery, nice hotels, friendly people, good food and really excellent walks. We had picnics on each of the 5 walking days and spent the last day looking round Ronda – a stunning town with Moorish architecture, a bull ring and many of the buildings teetering right on the edge of a gorge. The views from the bridge down into the gorge really take your breath away.
On Foot Holidays provided excellent advice and information when planning and booking the holiday. They answered any queries and adapted our holiday as we wanted to go over the New Year when their usual hotel was closed. The information pack contained everything required - full walk descriptions, maps and a background information booklet. Meticulous planning must go in to the choice of walks and written descriptions - they are completely accurate. This is our second holiday with On Foot and we will certainly book with them again. They always choose good, small hotels with lots of character, the walks are exceptionally good - going off the beaten track travelling through fantastic scenery.
Footloose in AndaluciaFind more about On Foot Holidays - Andalucia >
Our eighth European walking vacation, our first with On Foot Holidays, proved to be an extremely well conceived, rewarding journey among the small, beautiful white hill towns of Zahara de la Sierra, Grazalema, Benaocaz, Benaojan, and Ronda. The walking routes themselves were varied in terrain, pristine, and extremely interesting; the accompanying notes were utterly reliable and informative, and filled with valuable historical and natural context; and the accommodations and food recommendations were exactly right. This was a more adventuresome walk for us than those we have taken on extensively way marked routes in the UK, France, or Germany, and we found the experience very satisfying, given On Foot's remarkably thorough, responsive, and engaging support, from booking through arrival in Malaga and on the ground as we began our walk. Among the best walking vacations we have enjoyed, in territory new to us, and convenient for further explorations in Cordoba, Granada, and Malaga as well.
On Foot's route planning and booking are personal, responsive, informative, and completely reliable. Fast answers to queries, engaged and interested service from the UK, and--surprising to us, and beyond expectations--upon arrival to begin our walk in Spain. An outstanding operating, with whom we will absolutely travel again. On Foot's team feel personal, available, and devoted to YOU as a traveler, in a handcrafted, supportive way.
Great Walking - Castles of the RhineFind more about On Foot Holidays - The Rhine >
Following 2 previous walking holidays booked through On Foot, it wasn't a hard decision to book their Castles of the Rhine walk to include in our next trip to Europe. We had beautiful weather as we followed their route, up hill from the little villages next to the river, through woods and vineyards and over farmland always with a view down to the river not far away. Each night we ended up in an interesting hotel in a little village with lovely old buildings, interesting food choices and friendly people.
On Foot were once again very thorough in their organisation of our walking holiday. They always replied quickly by email to any queries, provided all the details we needed to make the trip run smoothly and booked us into some interesting, quirky, local accommodation options. We have been really impressed with their trip notes, suggestions for local activities and help with all matters, such as eating out, shopping, buying provisions, local contacts etc.
Perfect trails, scenery and accomodationFind more about On Foot Holidays - Istria >
Wonderful varied trails through the hills Istria, Croatia. Varied scenery through woods, meadows and finally the coast. Beautiful place to walk with lovely accommodation en route that was always a 'non-touristy' option with lovely hosts. Very much recommended.
Very personable - called the day before we left to wish us a happy holiday! Very quick to respond to any queries and went above and beyond what would be expected. Even after the holiday had finished, they organised people to help find and return an item my mother had accidentally left behind
Well organised walking holiday in wonderful Italian sceneryFind more about On Foot Holidays - Liguria >
My son and I enjoyed a self-guided walking holiday in the Apennine mountains. The walking routes were expertly planned by the tour operator, who also booked excellent accommodation in B&Bs or small hotels along the route and arranged daily baggage transfers. The walking was quite strenuous in parts, but was well rewarded by magnificent mountain views.
On Foot Holidays is a specialist walking holiday company. The staff are knowledgeable and very helpful, while their local contacts provide a useful and reassuring service.

Excellent walking in the Basque countryFind more about On Foot - Basque Country >
This is a superbly planned walking holiday, staying in amazing local inns and B&Bs which you would never find otherwise with delightful hosts, lovely food and wine, and beautiful unspoilt countryside. One day we saw no other human being between leaving our accommodation and arriving at our evening destination, while walking through beautiful mountains.
On Food double and triple check everything to make it all works and is of the best standard.

The scenery was stunning and the accommodation was thoughtfully chosen, providing a warm welcome and a true taste of Austrian hospitality.
This was our sixth holiday with "On Foot" and we consider ourselves to be seriously addicted!
The service provided by "On Foot" was excellent. We had full confidence in the excellent route desciptions, allowing us to relax and enjoy the walking. A full "Walkers' Pack" was provided giving a wealth of information about the area as well as practical details to make our holiday run smoothly.
The accommodation was thoughtfully chosen, to ensure that we received a warm welcome as well as a true taste of Austria. Our luggage was moved for us each time we moved hotels. Although we had no problems, it was good to know that we had the services of a local contact should we have needed it.
We have always felt we mattered to the staff at "On Foot" and feel that we know them as friends through e-mail contact. An exceptional company providing an outstanding service. We are already planning our next holiday with "On Foot"!!

Perfect blue skies and solitude in the Alpes MaritimeFind more about On Foot Holidays - Alpes Mmes >
Alpes Maritime was a big surprise for us. Though high season in the rest of France we had this area almost to ourselves and it is a most beautiful area awash with fantastic flowers, butterflies and so much more. Also some completely unspoiled villages and towns with lots of history.
Very thorough and considerate. Information provided for the arrival and the daily walks were of very high quality. All of the hotels looked after us well.
