WALKING IN TUSCANY

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I really enjoyed the walks through some beautiful beach forest, then out on the more exposed slopes to the top of Monte Sumbra, say.   The stunning views from other peaks.  The village-village walk.  The time to relax in/by the pool at the end of each walk.  The tea and biscuits/beer from the fridge upon return from a day's trekking.  Pottering around in Lucca, soaking up the atmosphere (enjoying a nice long lunch) and on the last day in Pisa before the late evening flight home (we had 2 free days really).  And of course, Mamma.

What did you think of your group leader?

Alejandro is an excellent leader/guide. He is really well organised; he communicated information really efficently and was encouraging every step of the way.  He went out of his way to assist with options on the free day, (e.g. bought and fetched rail tickets for the group), and thus enabled me to manage both visits to Lucca and Pisa later in the week - without missing out any of the scheduled walks.  Always sociable and helpful I really enjoyed his company and wish him luck.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Just book it and have a great week.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

This is one of the more successful Exodus holidays I have done - to the point that I am planning 'Cycling in Tuscany' for next year.  I've already recommended it to several friends.
