What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

There were many however exploring Pompeii, with a very knowledgeable guide, & then climbing Vesuvious and walking round the crater on my birthday takes some beating! The walk of the gods was spectacular with breathtaking scenery all the way. Also, the jet-boat trip to the island of Capri on the free day was pretty special-well worth doing. We were also invited into the hotel kitchen on two nights during the holiday and given great cooking demonstrations by Giovanni & his fellow chefs-great fun, especially my amateur pizza making attempt!

What did you think of your group leader?

Christine was absolutely brilliant-friendly, sociable, knowledgeable & highly organised. Her contribution really added to the overall enjoyment of the trip. She even knew all the best bars to visit after the walks!! Thanks Christine.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

As various other travellers have said - be prepared to both climb & descend a lot of steps! Your legs & joints quickly adapt to this though. The temperatures in September when we were there were pretty comfortable - mid to high 20's.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The main advice would be, if you're thinking about this trip then go for it! I would definitely repeat this holiday some time in the future. The trip is also excellent value for money. Finally - special mention to the staff at the hotel who were incedibly welcoming and thanks to the chefs for the great food, especially the alcohol saturated cake presented to me on my birthday!
