A Truly Enjoyable Walking Tour Of Austria

Went with my wife on our first walking holiday and it certainly won't be the last. Tour leaders Bob and Chris were a step ahead from beginning to end - and not just on the mountains. They go above and beyond to make sure the group is well looked after and provided detailed explanations of what to expect from the next day's activities - allowing us to make an informed decision on whether we'd prefer the moderate or more challenging itinerary. We found the moderate walks comfortable but still fulfilling and then enjoyed moving up a level on the final day. Bob provided excellent trip notes in advance which proved invaluable, detailing everything you should take to be properly equipped in an area where the weather can change very quickly. The hotel couldn't be described as luxurious but is a very acceptable home for a week and really shines when it comes to the evening meals.

Arriving at the summit of a mountain is a special feeling after a few hours of trekking uphill and the spectacular views provide ample reward. The team spirit within the group also made the experience memorable - something the tour leaders stress is important from the start. It always felt like a holiday, not a competition to see who could get to the top first.

Bob and Chris worked together brilliantly, making sure everything ran smoothly and leaving us with nothing to think about except enjoying the walks.

It's essential to invest in proper boots and wet weather gear is a must (although we needed it just once). Get some long walks in before you go to build up your stamina and make sure you're moderately fit. I Would highly recommend this tour.
