Fantastic walking holiday through the tranquil woods and meadows of Bohemia, Czech Republic. The routes included the rock towns of Mala Scala, Hruba Scala and Prochovsky Scala. Medieval castles, villages and towns were also en route including Trosky. We loved the new experience and meeting the locals. All hotels were as expected and in great locations. We walked the five day route from Turnov to Jicin, we can recommend an extra night in beautiful Jicin before heading back to Prague.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays always provide a superb service and great holiday support if required. This was our third walking holiday with them and I recommend them very highly as the routes have all been excellent. Thank You.

Everything worked like clockwork, very detailed walking route notes, all accommodation excellent- warm, comfortable with fabulous food, outstanding. Provision of up to date ferry timetables was thoughtful and well used by us, ditto trains. The walking routes were varied and the mountain views were glorious- quite the best we have seen. ( and we are seasoned walkers). The On Foot guide in Italy phoned us the evening we arrived to introduce herself and also to ensure that we were aware of a diversion on one walk day due to a bridge down. It is so reassuring to know that we could contact her if there was any problem. We have travelled with On Foot a number of times because they are always friendly, helpful and efficient. It is also lovely to speak to the same familiar people whilst choosing and booking a holiday. As always, we loved it.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

As above. Always give great advice pertaining to our walking ability, they know us through having booked with them about 8 times now. They are always helpful, friendly, knowledgeable about the area we are booking and always happy to discuss any queries. Totally efficient in every way. They are a brilliant company.

We walked in Andalusia, between some of the Pueblos Blancos, or white villages This holiday provided us with a great opportunity to experience the countryside and learn about the area's flora and fauna. We hiked through groves of cork oaks, passed through pastures of cows and black pigs and watched griffon vultures soar overhead. Our information package and walking instructions were very clear. The walking instructions were very clear and helpful, and the package of information provided us with interesting notes of the trip.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays responded promptly to our initial inquiry, and from that point on, gave us detailed information and supported our trip planning. We were impressed that they have someone in the area we were planning to hike, whose role it is to review the trail and ensure that instructions were still accurate. This contact was also available if were to have difficulties, which was reassuring.

Self-guided walking holiday in a national park in northern Portugal with On Foot holidays. A beautifully planned route with an interesting range of places to stay.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot were outstanding. Firstly, the range of holidays they offer and the options (length, etc) within each holiday. Secondly for the quality of the holiday and the support (eg local support person) available during the holiday. But principally for their helpfulness from the very first contact - quick to reply to emails, offering help in person (with using GPS, in my case) and additional instructions. Always friendly and able to give as much time as you might need.

We were greeted at Santiago airport and taken to Camarinas to begin our four day walk. Accommodation was very good, our hosts made us really welcome and the food and drink was excellent. We had support from Anzar who advised and booked taxis when the weather was inclement. The route was well signposted, the maps and guides very good. An adventure we really enjoyed.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays sent us lots of information prior to departure, support was available throughout our stay and lots of practical advice to get the best out of our stay. Everything ran like clockwork.

Honestly one of the best trips we have ever done. Great weather, excellent hiking on uncrowded trails, wonderful food and wine, lovely people and fantastic logistics provided by On Foot Holidays. We would not change a thing except we wish we had done the 10 day trip instead of 7!

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays provided excellent organization and assistance throughout the trip. All included transportation and baggage handling was perfect and all the hotels they booked were great. The maps and instruction booklets were very detailed and the downloaded GPS maps were handy though we only needed them once or twice. The office support at On Foot is excellent as well, highly responsive to all inquiries and always pleasant and professional. We highly recommend this company and will definitely be taking another trip with them in the future!

Absolutely great! The countryside was beautiful and peaceful...weather a balmy 70 F. Food and wine was fantastic. Of course, the architecture of everything is always amazing to a person who lives in a 250 year old country. We walked about 50 miles of the Tuscany countryside for hilltop town to hilltop town, stayed in beautiful and comfortable B & B's, and were just delighted in the whole experience.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On-Foot showed itself to be a professional and very well prepared tour operator in every way. The "Walking Package" that was sent to us was full of very valuable information from history of the area to explicit walking directions to basic travel transfer needs. It proved itself to be completely accurate in all details. On-Foot was very communicative from the first contact we had with them and even on the tour itself. I was delighted with the company!

Queries were dealt with very quickly and efficiently. Highly recommended. Beautiful countryside, good hotels, food and drink - a pretty perfect week!

The Basque Pyrenees Walk encompasses culture, history, a unique language, stunning countryside, friendly locals, regional food and wine, an interesting variety of accommodation, abundant wildlife, accurate route notes and importantly the most amazing local contact in Aznar who could not have been more helpful. We loved this walk from the peace and tranquillity of Ziga on Day 1 to the hype of San Sebastian at the end.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

Faultless from the start. Great comms via email throughout process, local contact Aznar was exemplary - supportive and very helpful especially on the 2 days we could not walk due to rain, the route notes easy to read and possibly the most accurate we have experienced over 10 walks with 5 different walking companies. Background information was comprehensive, travel tips were also comprehensive and relevant. Could not fault the service received from On Foot at all.

We did 7 days of walking for Ljubljana, Slovenia to Trieste, Italy. We had the opportunity to visit many tourist sites in Ljubljana before beginning our walk crosscountry to Trieste. The country is absolutely beautiful, and we loved our interactions with hosts and people in the small villages.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

On Foot Holidays provided day by day itineraries including directions and topographical maps. They organized all of our accommodations as well as providing for the movement of our luggage. We felt we had very good logistical support in the event of any unseen circumstances (which we did not have). This was one of our very best vacations.

This was our first walking holiday, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The scenery was breathtaking, and accommodations were excellent. We also enjoyed the variety of experiences (walking through fields, woods, and towns), and the interesting sights along the way (castles, waterfalls, medieval dwellings). We also liked the challenge of following the detailed instructions.

This was our first trip to Europe! My husband and I are quite active and like to explore the 'back-country' and culture of the various places we visit. When I came across the On Foot Holidays website (and the various tours they offer), we were very excited to add this element to our trip! We spent 3 weeks touring through Italy - starting in Venice, and spending time in the Cinque Terre and Rome. We then travelled south to Amalfi to start our week-long hiking tour along the Amalfi Coast, organized by On Foot Holidays. This was BY FAR the highlight of our trip!

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

The information On Foot Holidays provided to us was excellent and helped guide us along the trails from town to town. The accommodations they booked for us were fantastic. Our bags would be transported for us while we were hiking and they were always waiting for us in our room at our next accommodation. The trip overall was so well organized and planned! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend On Foot Holidays to our friends and family, and we're already planning our next hiking tour with On Foot for next year!

I'm a 50-something Australian and I took two teenage nephews on their first overseas holiday: a five-night self-guided walk in rural northern Portugual. The program was especially tailored for us by On Foot Holidays (OFH) so as to get the best dining options en route. It was a truly marvellous experience, right from the time the OFH driver picked us up in Porto to take us to the starting point, to the last night in a beautiful monastery that is now a pousada (luxury hotel). The walks were beautiful, the OFH hosts in each village were friendly and welcoming, the accommodation was clean and comfortable and the meals provided were very generous. This is a wonderful way to see the greenest, most beautiful and yet least known part of Portugal and to experience the traditional village life. It was our first walking holiday but it definitely won't be the last. It was a wonderful break from the rush and stress of the modern world, and a great way to immerse yourself in the wonders of nature.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

I was very impressed with On Foot Holidays. They are very organised, they supply all the information you need well in advance: not just the practical stuff (paper maps, waterproof folders, digital maps, very detailed directions for your self-guided walk, emergency contact details, and outlines of what to expect of each day's route etc) but also interesting historical and cultural background information so that you have a good sense of the region before you arrive. Their on-gound staff in Portugal (the drivers, the hosts in each village) are helpful, multilingual, and very familiar with the OFH product. The main local contact and route designer Paul Burton kept in touch regularly both before the start and during the walk, sent us weather updates and alerts, and very kindly came to join us for breakfast one morning midway through the trip, which was great. Bascially, On Foot Holidays are very organised, very thorough and efficient, but a very personal one too - you don't feel like a number, you feel like you have a personal mentor, which is comforting if - as it was in our case - it happens to be your first walking/hiking holiday. In all sincerity I give On Foot Holidays10 out of 10.

We flew to Mallorca mid May 2019 and embarked on a one week hiking trip on the Camino de la Piedra Seca/ Dry Wall Walk. As our luggage was being transported from town to town by taxi, we hiked with light rucksacks containing only jumper and rain gear and some food and water for the day. The terrain is challenging in parts and we covered between 15 and 20-odd km per day, on some days with several hundred meters of altitude thrown in. Except for one day the weather was superb, at this time of year warm but not hot and the vistas were simply stunning! Only damper was an encounter of the involuntary kind with professional pickpockets! They really are a problem not only in the obvious tourist spots but even on the hiking paths according to the Guardia Civil.

Rating for On Foot Holidays:

We were a group of 6 from Germany. Up front communication with the OnFoot team was speedy, comprehensive and always with a touch of humor! Mallorca as a destination is a great place to walk/hike, the organisation, planning and documentation by the OnFoot Holidays team was meticulous. The hotel operators they had chosen were super friendly and welcoming and each hotel had its own unique flair. A great thank you to the team in UK! (too bad your leaving us...or maybe not??)
