An authentic taste of the flavors of each region:- continental and buffet breakfasts; picnic feasts, lunches; dinner menus carefully chosen with local chefs. With these we serve fine wine of the region.
Individual itineraries are graded with walking time, distance and elevation information to help you choose the right tour for you. While we feel that most healthy individuals with a reasonable fitness level can manage our walking tours, you will get more out of it if you train accordingly beforehand. We are happy to discuss our walking tours with you.
Pace and Terrain
We combine friendly gradients with strenuous hills. We encounter a variety of terrain from wide gravel paths, to narrow, rocky trails. We set a comfortable pace which gives everyone time to enjoy each aspect of the day. On our more strenuous tours there are often two levels of walk from which to choose.
Guides and experts
We personally research each walk and find the best places to visit on the way. We guide our own tours, with local experts for specific fields such as art-history, archaeology, alpine botany and geology where detailed knowledge is beneficial and educational.
We travel in our own very comfortable 12-seater minibus, transporting you and your luggage safely from place to place. The minibus travels with us on most days and is available for anyone wishing to opt out of all or part of any walk.
