- The tour was well-organized and the tour leader knowledgeable in spite of the fact that he was not a local.
The rooms at the hotel were fine and the food good most of the time. I would recommend that one night the group be offered a Tyrolean menu to try local dishes, as another German group had.
The walks were varied enough but often rushed, not giving enough time for picture stops and rest. I would recommend that on at least one of the days we hike in the afternoon so that we could see the panorama of the Dolomites at sunset, which is the best time to see the unique rose-coloured rock of the peaks.
Most of the group members were from the UK so I was disappointed that there was not a variety of different nationalities. I was the only Canadian and found the others to be rather self-centered and not interested in Canadians. The conversation was always about the UK and half the time I did not understand what they were talking about.

Hi Mara, thank you for your feedback. I will pass on your ideas regarding the sunset walk to see the rose coloured Dolomites and the Tyrolean menu to the operations manager for the area as they sound like potentially great additions to the trip! I am sorry there wasn’t a mix of nationalities on your departure – if you ask before booking we will happily advise of the regional origins of the group.
