Walking in Tuscany

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

A week of enjoyable walking with a good cohesive group in pleasant surroundings.

What did you think of your group leader?

I have been on many group trips and Sara is an exceptional leader, way above the norm. Constantly working unobtrusively to provide support for individuals and the group, to make the week more enjoyable for everyone. Whether its first aid, extra clothing, advising on alternative options or providing maps, taxis and train tickets for the day off, Sara can handle anything required.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Do not look at Pisa temps for guidance. This is a 'mountain' walking trip and our group seemed to have not noticed this critical word. It was a lot colder and also wetter than the UK. Whereas the previous group had unseasonal warm sunny weather, we were raiding Sara's clothing store. As has been previously mentioned, this is an extremely high single supplement for a small room with a double bed and little else, plus shared facilities. The walled town of Lucca is well worth a visit on your day off. Maps, taxis and train tickets were organised by Sara and it was easy to explore. Pisa can be done on your final day.
