Everything We Hoped For!

Everyone in the family (teenagers included!) agreed it was one of the best vacations we've ever had. We got lucky with the weather - seven days of perfect walking weather in England in June. No small feat. The walking route was a lovely combination of fields, moors, woods and small towns, and the beginning and end points were locations we could have spent a few extra days exploring. Every day we started with a huge breakfast, and then set ...

No small feat. The walking route was a lovely combination of fields, moors, woods and small towns, and the beginning and end points were locations we could have spent a few extra days exploring. Every day we started with a huge breakfast, and then set out on our route for the day. It was an ideal vacation for us - surrounded by nature, active and challenging, but with a shower and fabulous pub meal awaiting us at the end. It was a luxury to focus on the countryside and our hiking, not the logistics of it all. We would do it again, and will.

Honestly, this was one of the best companies I've dealt with in a long time, and I don't say that lightly. They responded to my questions promptly, designed an outstanding route with shortening options, followed up with excellent trip materials (maps, directions, tourist attractions, history), offered advice and support for the trip, and solicited honest feedback afterwards. They PAID ATTENTION TO THE DETAILS. I find that rare these days, and it's critical to the success of a trip like this. I booked this trip with On Foot Holidays based on the personal recommendation of a friend who had used them before and still does. I would highly recommend On Foot Holidays, without caveat or reservation.

Walking on Dartmoor with Uncle Tom Cobley and all

This was a brilliantly designed and varied 7 day walk in south Devon, across the eastern fringes of Dartmoor, through quaint South Hams villages and ending up by the sea in history-laden Dartmouth. Too many highlights to mention here, but if you can do this walk in September, make sure you spend the second Tuesday of that month in Widecombe-in-the-Moor, at the age-old Widecombe Fair. Tom Cobley still rides his old grey mare there....

An excellent week' walking in Devov.

It was an excellent 6 day walking holiday from just south of Exeter to Dartmouth, across the moor and then following the river Dart. The route was found by On Foot holidays, excellent written route instructions were provided. Our accomodatio was booked before hand by On Foot and our bags were transported to our next night's destination. The duration of the walk was about 100kms. Our accomodation was good, and we found some excellent places ...

It was an excellent 6 day walking holiday from just south of Exeter to Dartmouth, across the moor and then following the river Dart. The route was found by On Foot holidays, excellent written route instructions were provided. Our accomodatio was booked before hand by On Foot and our bags were transported to our next night's destination. The duration of the walk was about 100kms. Our accomodation was good, and we found some excellent places to eat, our favourite being the Maltsters Arms at Tukenhay. A well known inn by the riverside. We had glorious views of Dartmoor and surrounding countryside, with three sunny days, and three wet ones. If you are a walker I can thoroughly recommend this walk.

Rating for tour operator:

On Foot is a small walking tour operator which organises walks mainly in Europe. There is close attention paid to the route, walking instructions and finding suitable accomodation. There is always a local person on hand for help if needed. My wife and I will definitely be going with them again.
