THE AMALFI COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Walking into a deep steep gorge on our second day, surrounded by enormous cliffs and following this narrow path wondering where we were going next.

What did you think of your group leader?

Christine was a really good guide, a great sense of humour, who kept everyone together and who was always willing to help when needed. it was nice when we came across refreshment stops that she was greated by the owners very much as a local and all the members of the group were made to feel very .

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Do get yourself ready, the walks are quite hard work but manageable and provided you have got reasonable walking shoes there should be no problems. A pole is useful but not essential and it is worth doing some practice walks which involve a bit of steep up hill.Above all don't worry about being the slowest, you probably will not be and even if you are people are happy to wait for you and still allow you time for a rest.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Lovely hotel run by a family, very willing to help if needed and the food is of high quality, the two nights spent in the kitchen were good fun. They catered for vegetarians without any problems providing they were warned about it in advance.
