- Your leader Nigel, I would say, is one of your best assets. I've worked with groups a lot and found him highly skilled, thoughtful of everyone's needs, safe, cheerful and entertaining. Delightful company all week.
The highlights for me were the Path of the Gods, and equally the walk high up that Nigel calls his equal favourite. Amalfi and Positano and Capri towns didn't light my fire - too touristy, though I recommend swimming at Positano for the view of the town from the sea.
Pompeii was good, and Vesuvius a treat for this volcano lover! I loved the optional trip to Ravello.
I gave accommodation an 8 because the food was not great for a vegetarian, unimaginative, and not an equal to the carnivore's meals! By the end of the week I was so bored with the lunch of omelette roll (I don't like smoked cheese so that was the only other option). I despair sometimes, get charged the same and it feels like it's just a tag on for the caterers. I've had a similar experience in Portugal.
A chance to make a tea in the room would be good as there was no relaxed common area for drinks in colder weather. The terrace was not usable on this early trip because of the chill.
