What an experience!
"The hikes were just right, enough of a challenge to feel properly exercised and to justify a little indulgence at dinner. The restaurant choices were delightful, and the food always interesting and well-prepared. You do wonderful work, curating these experiences. I thank you again for all the pleasure I had from them."
Rowan S. (Portugal 2019)
"I have no doubt that Portugal will become a signature destination in your portfolio, it was fantastic. The posted daily shots, photo album and group photos clearly evidence the incredible scenery and trails, cultural and culinary experiences, and the camaraderie and kindness of a wonderful group of people --- none of which could have been realized without your planning and leadership."
Carol T. (Portugal 2019)
"Michael and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip! Thank you for all your planning ... the terrifically located and lovely accommodations, the spectacular sights and amazing historic places amongst our hikes, and of course, your order for fantastic weather! Love your leadership and the pure and simple fun! Great traveling with you both!"

In these circumstances we will ensure anyone sitting out is safely provided for and offered alternative options where possible. Refunds will not be provided for activities missed and customers may be responsible for additional costs incurred.
