It was superbly organised from start to finish, and quite simply the BEST holiday we have ever had. We got to experience true wilderness in beautiful Slovenia, and were superbly looked after on 6 consecutive nights, by all of the different hosts in each of the places we stayed along the walk. We would recommend this holiday to anyone who is reasonably fit, has a sense of adventure, and wants to discover a country that must still be one of the best-kept secrets in Europe.

The Tuscany walk we enjoyed so much this year was even more enjoyable because in ‘23 we had to cancel at the last minute due to a health scare in the family. On foot Holidays were most accommodating in reorganising the trip for ‘24 and we are SO glad we re-booked. The depth of detail into which OFH goes in preparing for the trip, down to a bus timetable for a village bus ( 5 minute ride in a tiny Italian village) is symptomatic of the top quality of service provided by the company in all its client contact. We had modified the itinerary originally suggested for a ten days in Tuscany and again this was no problem for OFH. The trip we nominated was essentially a five day hike book-ended by a two day stay in both Siena to start and Montepulciano at the end. Walking through the visually stunning scenery was an absolute pleasure although on a couple of occasions we were exhausted by the climbs to our overnight accomodation towns perched on top of significant hills but we had been warned of these inevitable finales, especially at Montalcino. The Tuscany clay, which was another hazard the comprehensive track notes warned about, came into play on two separate days of walking. Walking poles, GPS navigation and hard copy maps helped us through by warning us of when to expect these extra hard sections and, more importantly, how far they would extend. Thankfully the accomodation each night was very satisfactory and we rested well and were able to start each day with clean and dry clothing…. A blessing. The hotel in Pienza stood out for its homely comfort level and outstanding views from our bedroom window. My wife and I have nothing but praise for OFH and the Tuscany walking trip we completed with their wonderful support from beginning to end.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This has been covered in my earlier words re the trip but can be summed up as follows: exemplary level of service backed by informed and courteous staff at all points of our discussions about the walk. Rapid response to emails and attention to detail are features of their work. On Foot Holidays are a company worthy of accolades for all aspects of their tours.

My husband and I hiked Tuscany for 7 days and it was so wonderful! We couldn’t believe all the information given to us! The walking tour instructions were so incredibly detailed, maps of each town, restaurant recommendations, history and information about each area visited, and our local contact was fabulous- frequent contact with updates of trail and route conditions and always replied promptly. The hotels were fabulous! Our suitcases were always waiting for us when we arrived at each destination. Everything was Flawless!!!

We booked a 4 day walking holiday in the Dordogne for late April/early May 2024. The weather was a bit rainy for some of the time but it did not take away from the fantastic trip. Every aspect of it was perfect and we loved the area and the accommodations/food.

On Foot Holidays has the entire experience so thoroughly planned out and organized - it was such a stress free relaxing, enjoyable experience from the day we booked until the day we finished.

We did the 4/day/5 night Dordogne trek and despite the rain, had a wonderful time discovering villages we would have never knew existed! All the hotels and hotel owners were lovely and the meals were exquisite. The hiking was a tad wet (unusual weather for the time of year..) but beautiful regardless. I would highly recommend it and have done so already.

We walked from Amalfi to Sorrento in Italy using On Foot holidays. They provided lodging, trail directions and luggage transfer, and we walked independently- there was no tour guide or group, which we preferred. The scenery was fantastic, the trails well marked.

Seven days self guided walking from the hilltop villages of Southern Umbria into the Sabine hills in the province of Lazio, with luggage transported to the next place to stay. The scenery was breathtaking, a mixture of distant snow covered mountains, while walking over high hills tops, along ridge lines, into deep valleys, and across upland summer grazing pastures. We stayed in a great selection of stylish residences in picturesque medieval hilltop villages and agriturismos (organic farm B&Bs), met lovely hosts wherever we went, and were (over)fed with delicious produce from the farms where we stayed.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Could not have been more helpful and friendly. Very clear description of what to expect in the online brochure; good communication beforehand to get everything tailored to our requirements; extremely thorough guidance notes/map/GPS to make navigation easy; good local contact to help if needed. Had done an excellent job of selecting great places to stay and organising all the logistics from start to finish of the walk. Made the whole process completely stress free (except for having to do the actual walking!)

Our six-day walk through the incredibly beautiful Tuscan landscape, finishing each day in a beautiful hill town where we had delicious meals and wines was all we had hoped for and more. The walking routes were uncrowded, easy to follow with the On Foot guidance. We often felt like we were walking within a painting. A wonderful trip

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Carefully planned out route, thoughtfully chosen hotels, arrangements that all went without a hitch - in the incredibly beautiful Tuscan landscape. We couldn't have asked for more! From the first communications with On Foot, we were impressed with the responsiveness, thoughtfulness, and thoroughness with which they treated our holiday plans. They really know what they are doing. I've already booked another holiday with them, and won't hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.

An amazing eight days walking in Nthn Portugal. We loved that everything had been organised and all we had to do was enjoy a fabulous days walk across diverse and interesting landscape. Breakfasts and picnic lunches were provided so we just headed out the door! When we arrived at our accommodation we were greeted by our host who settled us in and provided information on dinner arrangements. So relaxing!

We love self guided hiking trips, and seeing that Mallorca has great weather in March, we thoroughly enjoyed leaving a wet and cold Seattle. The trails meander up and down on ancient trails, the blue sea is nearly always visible, the hotels and hosts are all very good to excellent, and each village is unique. Our host in Valdemossa suggested several restaurants, and two of them were our favorites over our ten day holiday. Some hosts provide an honor bar, so we could have a cocktail or bottle of wine, and snacks, without leaving the building.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

We can’t say enough about On Foot Holidays, from their prompt communication, Walkers Pack and trail info, help by the local contact, transportation suggestions, and more. It left us without any worries so we could completely relax and enjoy being on holiday!

We travelled by train from Oxford to Barcelona, spending a few days in Paris. Our On Foot Holidays walk commenced in Poblet, west of Barcelona, and headed south and west into the wine-growing area of El Priorat. A superb route for our self-guided walk, with excellent route notes which guided us well. Accomodation and food, including picnics for our walking days, was also excellent.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays provided very good information about the route and accomodation on their website. This was backed up by excellent communication by email or by phone. We were able to learn more details of the route from staff who had recently walked the route themselves. Very good maps and route information provided, plus a GPS and map download of the route which was well explained, and worked well. Also helpful and interesting background information re the history of the area, and flora and fauna.

Early April is an excellent time to hike between four distinct villages in Andalucía. Each village was unique in its protective position, either draping a mountain peak or surrounded by verdant cliffs. Between the villages, the self guided hiking trip provides gorgeous views to far flung little white villages, nestled into their landscape. At the end of each long day, we were warmly welcomed to an impeccable inn, and found cold drinks and excellent dining. Our favorite experience was crossing Grazalema Natural Park, an awe inspiring traverse that had us stopping often to take pictures, which could never do it justice, and remark about the colorful spring flowers carpeting the green grass, the remarkable rock formations, and the gentle surrounding hills and peaks.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This was our eighth trip with On Foot Holidays, and they continually impress us with their personal and professional communication and services. They provide a full package of information, including an excellent Walkers Pack, full of details from local history and culture, to post travel bus and train schedules. Their local contacts have always been very resourceful and friendly. We often remark to fellow walkers of their quality of service, as we know On Foot is superb.

We hiked the spectacular GR221 Dry Stone Route in Mallorca with the support of On Foot Holidays. The route was absolutely beautiful, with stunning scenery, villages, food and landscapes. The hotel selections were wonderful with charming hosts, unique buildings and rooms, and great breakfasts to fuel us for the day ahead - we could not have planned it ourselves so successfully. If there were not so many other hikes on our bucket list, we would certainly do this again.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

This was our first multi-day hiking holiday and our first with On Foot, but already on the second day we were discussing where we could go next with On Foot. Everything worked like clockwork (and our standards are pretty high since we live in Switzerland and „clockwork“ has a certain implication!), so we could just enjoy the route, our hiking, the Spanish food and the spectacular scenery. The communication both before, during and after the holiday has been clear, personal and professional. Our expectations have certainly been exceeded. Many thanks.
