PICOS PEAKS & GORGES

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Getting to the top of the scramble - wobbly legs, but what a view! Cold, cold beer after a hard day's walk

What did you think of your group leader?

He was amazing; so passionate and knowledgable about the area and a fun guy to have around. He was so encouraging on the hard bits - "the steeper the shorter!" - running up and down like a mountain goat so he could speak to everyone.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

For single travellers, maybe check before you book the make-up of the group - how many solo travellers, age range etc. I actually didn't do this but I got lucky with a great mix of people, though it may be easy to end up with people who are all much older or younger or all couples (not that this would necessarily be a bad thing of course, but it may be a consideration for some people)

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The one thing that slightly worried me before I left was the fact that most evening meals were taken in the hotel - part of the fun of travelling is getting to know the local cuisine and culture and there's less of a chance to do this if you eat in the same hotel every night, rather than explore the town where you're staying. However, the food at the hotel was lovely as were the staff, but maybe it would be good to have the option? (This is a very minor issue though and I appreciate it may be difficult at a small hotel especially the quiet season)
