The Natural Adventure Company organized my independent walking tour of the Rota Vincentina in SW Portugal. The approximately 20 km per day was varied, safe, interesting and pleasant. The hotels were very good with more than adequate breakfasts included. My luggage was always at the hotel upon my arrival. I was fortunate with the weather. This was an exceptional walking tour.
Felt we should have walked the Tartras route the other way around on reflection
The trip was very well organized and the transportation to the hotels very clear. The hikes were more challenging than I think our group thought they would be particularly on the rocks. It would have been very difficult for someone afraid of heights or had vertigo. We all felt very accomplished at the end of our hikes. The trails are very well marked as well. Overall a very fun and challenging trip that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for an adventure.
Operator's comment: Dear Denise, we are glad that you enjoyed your walking holiday in the High Tatras. While the walks are generally not demanding, we have taken into account your and other traveller's feedback and now it is graded as "Easy to Moderate" (at the time you submitted your feedback it was still graded as "Easy").

We had a lovely time on our self-guided hiking trip. The accommodations were wonderful and the included breakfasts were delicious! Everything went as planned.
A memorable holiday in a beautiful location. Excellent!
A memorable holiday in a stunning location.
We took this holiday as a self-guided tour. Slovenia is a beautiful country and really enjoyed the walking trails as they gave a variety of landscapes and walking terrains; pleased with all three accommodations as they gave us different experiences, particularly liked having bedrooms with extra space for relaxing; transfers were efficient and punctual; the local representative gave us a full explanation of the booklets/maps/documents and felt reassured that we could call them if the need arose. The walking guide with photographs was very helpful. Overall a very good experience, have used other walking holiday companies previously but would be quite happy to book with yourselves again and give recommendations.
Particularly enjoyed Day 3 walk to the Three Countries Point and Vintgar Gorge was very spectacular!
We undertook this holiday as a self-led walking tour and had a brilliant holiday - Slovenia is a beautiful country to visit with a range of terrain and landscapes incorporated into this holiday. The tour company was efficient when making the booking, responded quickly to queries and incorporated extras to the basic tour without any problem. It was nice to meet a rep at our first hotel who provided us with all our maps and walk guides and an assurance that assistance would be available if needed. The walks were well planned and the walk guide with photographs made it very easy to find the routes. The three hotels were different in character and all provided good breakfasts and evening meals. We have been on several walking holidays with other companies but would certainly recommend The Natural Adventure Company and would use them again.
Our Austrian Lake District tour was absolutely fantastic and was the best holiday we have ever have. The hotels were lovely, in great locations and all breakfasts were great. The walk guidebook was really detailed and completely foolproof. Overall, the tour was superb value and we are really excited to book our next trip!
We took the Salzkammergut self-guided walking tour in July of 2018. Everything went very well from meeting our local contact, Helmut, on the first day to the tips and pointers we received, to the guide book and map materials we received, to the lodgings that were booked for us. It was our first experience with a self-guided trip and we will definitely do this again.
