This was a delightful holiday. We did the six night (five walking days) version which gave us plenty of time to appreciate the very varied scenery, flora and fauna and places of literary interest. There were four days of walking from one place to another and one day's walk, with many possible variations, that returned to the starting point.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This was (we think) our eleventh holiday with On Foot. They can always be relied on to devise excellent walks, provide all the information one could want, find very good accommodation and offer useful suggestions on where to eat out. Communication is brilliant: they are always on the ball and prompt to respond.

We hiked the Camino dos Faros along the Costa da Morte in Galicia Spain. Stayed at some lovely small hotels and B&B’s in quaint little fishing villages, with excellent service and friendly staff. The restaurants for the most part were top notch and the seafood was the best we have ever tasted. The hiking was challenging at times, and the beauty of the area is unparalleled. Galicia is like a little slice of heaven

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Working with On Foot Holidays was a real pleasure. All of the staff I worked with were very friendly, professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. They were always very prompt in responding to questions, and the “walkers pack” they provided was very comprehensive. I will have no problem recommending them, or working with them in the future.

Walked the Dorset tour in July of this summer. Was completely worth going through all of the quarantine and testing restrictions required to travel during these pandemic days. Continue to be astonished at the beauty of the countryside and the pride my teen and I felt when accomplishing these long and often solitary walks through farms and forests was incredible. The food and welcoming atmosphere and luxurious rooms at Plush and also Evershot were just magnificent. Every detail and every step is carefully planned out for you by the great Harriet and Simon and we were so grateful for all of their work to create and upkeep this adventure. Thank you for another trip with memories we truly treasure.

Our Coastal Exmoor walking holiday with Onfootholidays was awesome! The breathtakingly beautiful coastal views and footpaths were out of this world! Coupled with the beautiful riverside, moors, valley, and forest paths - what more could you ask for! As two "older" walkers, we were a bit leery of the uphill portions, but we took it slow and were rewarded with spectacular views. Each day was a different adventure, from the excellent accommodation to the scenery we encountered on each of the routes.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

The staff at Onfootholidays were outstanding, so responsive and caring, we felt like we had family guiding us on this wonderful adventure. All of the accommodation they selected for our holiday was excellent, and the obvious research and planning they do for their walks is top notch. This was our second walk with Onfootholidays and it will not be our last!

Brilliant five day walk from Tisbury to Lyme Regis. Beautiful scenery, quiet country lanes and miles of walking along the Wessex ridgeway with amazing views in all directions. Last day along the coastal path, hilly but stunningly beautiful. Great accomodation and food along the way.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Great attention to detail by On Foot, the walking route details are incredibly thorough and helpful so there is no excuse for getting lost! Accomodation choices were perfect, and carefully selected. On Foot were readily accessible when needed. Lots of communication before the holiday. We felt very well looked after in every respect. This was our second holiday with On Foot and can't wait to do another.

A wonderful holiday walking through the Dorset countryside. The route had been carefully planned such that we barely encountered anyone and were able to enjoy the wildlife and scenery for ourselves. Everything had been taken care of so that we could enjoy our wonderful surroundings, without worrying about where we would be eating dinner, spending the night and whether our luggage had arrived! Perfect!

Nothing was too much trouble for them. We felt we had a very personal service and that, had we needed to, they would have been there to offer support and help.

We walked OnFoot's 7-night 'In the footsteps of Thomas Hardy' trail in Dorset at the start of July. Managed two days without rain, which was a bonus! The walks were beautiful - green rolling hills and flower-filled meadows - and the distances varied from day-to-day so even we geriatric 60+s could keep going. The accommodation was very well chosen, and we had some of the best food we've had on a holiday like this. The whole adventure was first rate.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Whoever you speak to or email at OnFoot they are always friendly, helpful and approachable. And if the person you speak to first hasn't walked a particular route, they quickly put you through to someone who has - so all advice and opinions are given from first hand experience. They are simply outstanding.

Six day circular walk starting and finishing at St Ives via Lands End. On the coastal path. GLorious scenery and quirky but excellent accommodation with luggage waiting for us each day at destination. Superbly well organised and route planned. Eight of us walking so logistics with meals and accommodation all pre booked due to Covid restrictions. Thankfully nowhere had to cancel any of our bookings. Everything went like clockwork.

A walking holiday in northern Portugal. The route was well planned, including varied topography and landscape. The hotel accommodation was of good quality. The support provided, in difficult times, both before and during the holiday itself, was of high quality. We were able to enjoy ourselves without worries.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays provided a great deal of personalised support. Because they have a local contact they were able to advise us about how to organised covid tests in Porto before our return. In addition, they had passed on to hotel operators in advance the information that we are vegetarian. This was a high level of customer service.

We did a 7 day self guided walking holiday in northern Portugal Our luggage was transported to a new hotel every day. All the hotels we stayed in were small, family owned and very characterful. The walks were all very beautiful in stunning scenery and off the beaten track. We couldn’t have wished for more

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot holidays were superb from booking process to after we got back. We had booked when Portugal was on the green list when it changed to Amber we decided we would still go. On Foot were incredibly supportive and completely flexible in allowing us to change our minds at any point. We could phone with any number of questions and they were very happy to go out of their way to help. It was a very personal service. All the arrangements on holiday went very smoothly and we were given all the information we could need.

We opted for a walking holiday in Devon and Somerset as travelling abroad was extremely difficult this year. We were very impressed by the variety of walking environments achievable within a five day period - cliff tops, woodland, riverbanks, moorland and pretty villages. The accommodation arranged for us was again interestingly varied and of an excellent standard, ranging from cheerful B&Bs to beautiful rambling old hotels. We have had several similar holidays both home and abroad and this definitely rated as one of the best. The glorious sunny weather obviously helped and was much appreciated!

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot is a brilliant company. There is a genuine feeling that they really care that we have a good holiday. Whether the destination is abroad or, in this case, at home, they cover everything that is necessary to make the holiday run as smoothly as possible. Because of the nature of the holiday, walking from place to place with different accommodation each night, there is a great deal to organise and co-ordinate. On Foot are excellent at keeping us informed during the planning process and consult us if any minor decisions have to be made. Emails are always swiftly responded to and telephone calls are extremely friendly and helpful.
