We walked the Soajo to Santa Maria Do Bouro route through the Penede-Geres National Park in North-West Portugal. It was a 6 day self-guided walking holiday booked through On Foot Holidays

They are a small, friendly tour operator. Their attention to detail is phenomenal. This is the third holiday we have booked through them, and each time the experience has more than lived up to expectations.

We had a really delightful trip with On Foot. This is our second tour with them and it certainly won’t be our last. They do an outstanding job with the planning and logistics and we’re always know that we’re going to have the best trip possible when we book with them. I also have to say that their flexibility and responsiveness during COVID was above and beyond. We felt very comfortable booking with them during such uncertain times and were not at all disappointed.

This is a great route, unique to On Foot, with not many other walkers. Each day sends you up and over the foothills of the Pyrenees to the next charming village. The lodging is always comfortable and food especially good in the Basque Country. This walk is an excellent introduction to the rural side of the Basque region.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This was our second walk arranged by On Foot. Coming out of Covid, we would not have gone with any other agency. The GPS files and app worked very well. And On Foot's local contact was of immense help when we found our path blocked by fences on Day 1.

This was a two centre walking holiday on the Greek islands of Naxos and Amorgos. We flew to Mykonos from Manchester then travelled on various ferries.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This is the third Walking holiday that we have taken with On Foot and we have another planned. We would not use anybody else because of the amazing attention to detail and communication skills evident amongst all of the employees. Substantive research is carried out before routes are selected and the very detailed instructions and advice are invaluable.

We spent 8 nights on a walking vacation beginning at Lake Maggiore and ending at Lake Orta. Lodging was arranged by On Foot Holidays. They also booked dinners for us most nights at our request. A local tour contact helped us with logistics to adapt to two rainy days. We had 3 beautiful days of weather and enjoyed all but one of the hikes designed by On Foot. The walking guide and GPS worked perfectly

Six day walking holiday based in Chora on Andros, a two hour ferry ride from Athens. Spectacular scenery, very well marked and maintained walking trails, peace and quiet, delicious fresh food and friendly people. Lovely hotel accomodation on a traditional and unspoiled Greek island.

Everything from initial contact to final documentation is efficient, precise and helpful. The walking notes are extremely clear and useful background information is also provided. On Foot really know their walking destinations so I am happy to be totally guided by their experience and recommendations.

Stunning views, superb food, and beautiful walks. We began in Amalfi and added extra rest days in Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento, as well as an add on of two nights in Capri. The walking routes were challenging, but very well detailed and a variety of route options provided to ease or shorten each day's itinerary. On Foot also added a variety of itineraries for use in Capri. The holiday went off without a hitch--all hotels either very good or excellent; all transfers executed in a timely fashion; activity and restaurant recommendations invariably quite good, and best of all--the weather cooperated as we had superb weather every day.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

We've used other firms, UK and US, for "inn-to-inn" self-guided walking vacations in Spain, France, UK, and Italy. On Foot was the best of them all. Planning questions were answered quickly by a very responsive staff; the route notes, maps, transportation schedules, and other information provided were very comprehensive and the best we've encountered by far. We particularly liked the range of options offered, both in the grade of lodging we could select, en route extensions (rest days), and day-to-day variations in the walking route that allowed us to tailor each day's itinerary to our group's (4 people) needs and desires that particular day. We will use On Foot for our next walking vacation.

Our holiday was perfect from start to finish. We rambled down country lanes, through orchards and vineyards, along grassy farm tracks and uphill through forested trails. We certainly stepped back in time, discovering medieval villages and coming across castles, some in ruins and others completely intact and pristine. We spent our nights in lovely country inns where we were warmly welcomed and able to rest and unwind before setting out the following day. The holiday certainly provided us with the opportunity to explore a part of France that not many Canadian visitors get to see.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays really contributed to a fabulous holiday experience. They attended meticulously to every detail of the trip, responded promptly to all of our queries, and made us feel at ease travelling in a foreign country. They took care of all hotel reservations, the transfer of luggage between villages, and many of the meals. They provided us with a comprehensive "Walkers' Kit," which included precise directions, regional maps, local information and contact numbers. We would definitely travel with them again, and, in fact, have already visited their website since returning home to see what other walking holidays they have on offer.

My husband and I spend a week hiking on the Greek islands of Naxos and Amorgos. We enjoyed the different experiences of each place. We went on spectacular hikes, met friendly people, ate delicious food, marveled at Naxian marble and swam in the Aegean Sea. We were both challenged and relaxed: the perfect combination for us!

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This was our second booking with OnFoot and we have been very pleased with their service. Communication is EXCELLENT: all questions readily answered and plenty of interesting details presented in advance. It was a pleasure getting to know the informed, friendly and helpful staff during our email exchanges. There was attention to detail: at one point they suggested an alternative transportation plan when what I had arranged didn't look like the best option. And through it all, helpful and friendly. And loved having a really good local contact to help with details: it really made the trip even better!
