We started in Beaulieu sur Dordogne and hiked through, Port de Gagnac, Loubressac, Carennac, Meyronne and Rocamadour. It was very varied, well planned, with many interesting and different things to see each day. The kilometres to hike varied each day and all were great walking.

Everything worked as plannned. Superb.

Loved walking the Karst in Slovenia. Everyone in every place was so friendly. Luggage transfer happened magically without a hitch. The walking was beautiful and easy. We went in October and the leaves were gorgeous. In Slovenia, the walking was very diverse going up and down mountains with incredible views, through meadows, quaint villages, vineyards and through woods. It was all fantastic. Touring Predjama Castle and Skocjan Caves added special interest to the walk although there were other interesting sites along the way too.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Offered a local English speaking contact who took us to the start point telling us interesting history on the way there. The luggage was transferred easily and accurately. Information sent ahead of time was very detailed with many maps of the walking route, notes for the routes and information about sites seen along the way. Recommended restaurants were sent. Conversation starters were also sent such as the accordion maker and player at one accommodation. The GPS information was invaluable for us and always let us know if we were going correctly. Accommodations were all unique and well-located. All were very nice and the staff at each place was very friendly.

Wonderful walking in a revelatory landscape - northern Portugal, largely in its national park. The walking routes were satisfyingly challenging, the sights and sounds and smells a joy for the senses, the people we met hospitable and kind, the places we stayed characterful and excellent. Oh, and the food and wine were great too!

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This was our third trip with On Foot, and we cannot stop singing their praises. Utterly professional but also friendly and supremely helpful. Their love of sharing their joy of walking shines through, and the package they provide (walk routes and maps, accommodation, background information and support throughout the holiday) is absolutely brilliant. We feel in the safest of hands with On Foot.

We used On Foot Holidays to book a trip to Devon, England. We use them for solo hikes and the instructions for the walks are very well organized and they include a detailed booklet that explains local history and calls out notable points. We walked through beautiful countryside and even got to visit Agatha Christie's house!

They make sure everything is so well organzied and you feel taken care of throughout the experience, despite completing the trip as a solo adventure. The walks are always so enjoyable and the accommodates are very comfortable. This is the 3rd time we've walked with them and we just booked a 4th trip!

My family spent six days walking the Cornwall coastline earlier this month. We stretched ourselves comfortably walking many miles each day while roaming and the countryside and coastline. We literally walked through centuries of history and the time gave us an opportunity to truly be together. Everything was prearranged for us: after a delicious and filling breakfast we packed light backpacks and pulled out our maps and began walking to our next destination, discovering new sites and enjoying the time. When we arrived at next spot our luggage was waiting for us and it was time for a beer or glass of wine and more reflection. We can't wait for our next walking trip.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

The entire team at On Foot Holidays was wonderful to work with in planning our vacation. They communicated well, took the time to listen to our needs and interests, always responded in a timely manner and were professional. We plan to book another walking adventure and it will be with On Foot Hollidays.

It was a beautiful walk--being out in the country with the animals and crops, walking through green fields and hopping (not really hopping . . .) over styles. The accommodations were delightful, and the food along the way was delicious. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

The On Foot folks were extremely prompt in replying to our emails--answering questions as well as anticipating some (ie Covid testing in the UK). We stopped by their office in Salisbury and had a very nice chat and a cup of tea with Mary. It was fun talking to her and seeing their headquarters. They were all very helpful and gracious.

Walking from BishopsCastle to Haye, mostly along Offa's Dyke Path, with maps and detailed directions provided, bags taken by taxis, accommodation and dinner booked each night and support to get to and from the start and end of the route. Takes all the hassle and anxiety out of the walking so you can just enjoy the day and the route.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Attention to detail is amazing, with many thoughtful bits of advice and help. Summary of the whole route so you can gauge the difficulty and then on a daily basis to help you prepare. Lots of extra information about the route and history and information about the places you stay and pass through. Friendly and supportive yet not intrusive with lots of general advice about walking and weather and what you need to take with you. Able to flex the days and stay extra in places as well.

A walking holiday in Cornwall on a five day circular route beginning and ending at St Ives. There are options for routes, but I did 2 days inland walking and 3 days on the coastal footpath. Full notes and directions were supplied, accommodation booked, and luggage transfers each day arranged. The scenery was spectacular.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Very efficient and friendly, lots of background information on travel and the places visited, restaurants were recommended and booked for me, and the whole package was customised with rest days to take in other activities of my choice. A personal contact was available throughout my holiday in case I wanted any assistance or advice. I cannot fault On Foot for their service.

I visited Naxos and Amorgos and loved both islands. OnFootHolidays did a great job in hotel selection and providing a variety of hiking options each day. The hikes varied in difficulty, duration, and terrain.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

OnFootHolidays is very responsive to e-mail and all questions are answered no matter how silly. They send out a Walkers Pack ahead of time which is complete with all the information one could need to complete the trip and hikes with no problems. In the event a problem occurred, you are provided with numerous ways to contact them, along with a local representative. I felt very safe although I did the trip by myself and was hiking alone.

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.
