Walking in Tuscany
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The whole week was wonderful but probably walking to the top of Monte Prado, the highest point in Tuscany, was the highlight. We were even joined by friendly local Labrador who accompanied us for the entire walk! We also loved the valley walk, which took us to a beautiful, walled village and other lovely places.. with several coffee stops!
What did you think of your group leader?
Sara Bull really set the gold standard! The organisation was peerless and everything ran like clockwork. The walks were well led and where necessary, fitted around the weather. Our day off had plenty of options and Sara arranged taxis and train tickets to the beautiful walled town of Lucca, well worth a visit. She also booked tables at local restaurants for our non inclusive evenings, she really looked after us. Her knowledge of the local area was outstanding and her dogs Dora and Elvis were very friendly and welcoming.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Just go! It is a fabulous location and a great place to walk. It may not always be sunny so take your waterproofs and brolly alongside your sunscreen but most of our days were fine.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
We were really lucky to have a wholly friendly group, a wonderful leader and consequently a lot of laughter. Most of all it was hugely enjoyable. Unreservedly recommended!
