The tour we did is about to change so there's not much point me commenting on how pretty Martinique is our how lovely the coastal walk we did there was - or how dire the accommodation there was. Instead, I shall comment on the unseasonally high rainfall which made the walks in Dominica and St Lucia rather challenging and the lack of a shower at the accom in Dominica rather unpleasant. The whole trip was a mixture of fabulous scenery, interesting sites, good walks, a disappointing lack of fruit juices and average food. For anyone planning to stay on at the end, there really isn't much to do in Soufriere.
Our leader, Coco, was amazing. She had such high levels of organisation, positivity and communication skills, I wish she was Prime Minister.

The biggest problem is standard of accommodation; I was lucky I always had water in the room it may not have been hot but there was water.

I shared and particularly in the final hotel Villa Des Pitons it felt that I was an after thought the room had one lovely bed with mosquito net bedside light etc and one bed (mine) that was just through into the room. It wasn't a twin room and since we have both paid an equal amount it needs more thought.

Some accommodation was "out of town" which whilst convenient for walks did restrict the evening alternatives.
Good varied itinerary with choice of walks.
Heather was a very good leader with good people skills.

My highlights were;
1. Achieving the walk to Boiling Lake even though the weather was bad - we had no views due to cloud cover. I felt proud that I had managed the walk and the lake is extraordinary.
2. I also really enjoyed spending a relaxing day at the Imperatrice Village Hotel on Dominica.
3.The Christmas day walk to Middenham falls and an afternoon on Bubble Beach resting in hot sand and witnessing village entertainment was another highlight. Not to mention dancing on New years eve in Soufriere.
Heather was a brilliant tour leader.

Walk through woods and along beach in Martinique.

Pack light - there are lots of stairs in the hotels!

The diversity of the three islands,with Dominica coming out as the favourite amongst our group. The last hotel in St. Lucia was exceptional. Dominica ticked all my personal boxes,
wildlife,wild landscape,walking and as yet a seemingly unexploited environment.

I’m sorry that you were so unhappy with your time in the Windward Isles, Thelma. I can see that the two points you were most disappointed with were that the information provided to you ahead of the trip didn’t reach you, and your Explore Leader’s talks. We looked into both these issues for you and established that we’d used your usual email address, so we’re unsure why they didn’t arrive. We do, however, provide detailed trip notes for all our departures – which include hints on packing and your daily itinerary – and these can be downloaded from our website. In addition, Tony apologised that you didn’t get as much from his talks as he’d anticipated. He’s been working for us for a number of years, with great feedback, but we’ve asked him to take your comments on board and ensure his talks are as varied as possible.
