What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

The highlight was the climb up Stromboli and the view at the summit. To look down on an erupting volcano was a once in a lifetime experience.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Excellent

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

I have been on a number of Explore trips including those for at the high end of cost/duration, yet this one week trip managed to be one of my best ever holidays.  Great hiking which challenged but was not too arduous, fabulous scenery, great company, wonderful hospitality.  Didn't stop laughing all week.   Very happy memories.  Stromboli didn't disappoint and walking over Etna at 3000m was awesome.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Mount Etna Trek - it was totally awesome!! we were the only group on the North face of the mountain which made the trek really personal and intimate. It was my first visit to Sicily & certainly wont be my last, It is a beautiful & Vibrant part of Italy with hidden gems around every corner!

It was an amazing experience. It was a big risk for me as I had never hiked before, but the guide was supportive, the group were all encouraging and it's by far the best thing to do.

It's a very detailed and intense trip and not for the faint hearted. I liked the planning of the days, the choice of what to do after the hikes. All in all a very pleasing holiday. Stromboli was by far the highlight, with Vulcano 2nd. (SV -21st May 2011)

Beautiful hike. Etna and Stromboli were unbeleivable and the rest of the hiking was just beautiful. Great food, great wine, great hiking and gorgeous views. What more could one ask for? (SV - 21st May 2011)
 
0 Corina Popescu, 17/11/10
Strombili was highlight.  The first 2 days of Fog was unexpected.  Worth taking the bus to Toarmina, would actually include it in the trip (SV -9th October 2010)
