What did you think of your group leader?

Christine is fabulous! She knows the towns, the people, the history inside and out - a true local combined with the perspective and understanding of a Brit.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Going in October was great - I'd imagine the summer heat makes the treks harder. Bring a walking pole! Save some $$ for a day trip to Capri complete with private topless taxi with a wonderful driver/tour guide (Christine did a top notch job arranging it for us). Spend some time in the town and get out of the hotel for at least one dinner. If you can, spend some time before or after the trip in Italy to have a more complete experience instead of just going/leaving with the tour.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Fabulous people, everyone friendly and helpful, well organized with not much downtime!
