Canberra ACT Australia
- The tour was unforgettable. The itinerary was very well thought out, the acccommodation, mainly, appropriate. Best of all was the tour guide Jon, who maintained a sense of humour and equanimity throughout. He kept a watchful eye on each one of us. The group had varying abilities and Jon was like a sheepdog, running from the front of the pack to the back, making sure that everyone was okay and nobody got lost. He took those who needed it to the chemist, found ATMs for others. I would re book with explore if I knew that Jon was to be the tour guide/leader again.
The trip notes advised that Day 2 was to be over gently undulating territory. These notes need revision to state that "Day 2 is the toughest of the trip and involves a lot of downward travel over very steep, rough and rocky terrain. "
Two people on the tour suffered injuries that day. I ended up with three black toe nails from the terrain.

Hi Tamara, I appreciate your feedback of your trip. I love the visual imagery of the Explore Leader being a watchful and busy sheepdog! On reviewing your comments with our local agent, we think you are referring to day three – the descent into Molinaseca. We are looking to make the nature of the walk clearer in the notes, so thank you for letting us know how you found the walk.
