    I understand that the route for the walk in Ortranto had been changed to avoid a section on a busy road. This new route was very successful and is to be commended.

    We had the benefit of Debbie Brown - Operations manager along with the group. She was terrific and particularly valuable as this was a big group - 18 people - probably a few too many.

    thanks for the feedback, we're glad you got to travel with Debbie and had a great time :)

    On the last day we had a very early start to catch a train to the airport. Maybe we could have caught the train the previous afternoon and spent the night in Bari. This would have left just a short train journey to the airport the following morning.
