    This was an excellent holiday. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and assessed the ability of our group well. We had excellent weather and we felt we had achieved quite a few challenging walks by the end of the week. The hotel was good and we had an upgrade. The set menu food was disappointing with a lot of heavy carbohydrates eg cheese dumplings, ravioli, etc. The three or four of us with a vegetarian diet struggled but they did try. Our group was very sociable and we had a fun week. Alex, our guide, gave a few options for the free day. He also was very informative on walking skills especially on the rough terrain.

    A stunning part of Europe with really varied walking.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Getting to the top of Monte Piano via the Pioneer's Path.  Walking on virgin snow...in September.  Enjoying the evening sunshine on a bench above Villabassa and just taking in the view.What did you think of your group leader?Karl was very friendly (even came out with us for dinner on the 'free' night) and very knowledgable about the local area and history. Perhaps a little authoritarian about long trousers and walking poles....And surprisingly (to me!) he's a Brit - being a Karl with a 'K' I had assumed he would be local/Austrian!Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Don't be intimidated by the grade C trips.  While the walking did have its moments and everyone on the group has done some quite serious walking before, the group was pretty mixed in terms of age etc and no-one really struggled.Take walking poles: Karl was insistent that we used them on some days, so if you don't want to borrow mis-matched ones from the hotel, take your own.  And if Exodus book you onto an EasyJet flight, make sure they fit in your hold luggage: they won't let you check them in as a separate item or take them as hand luggage.And despite being in Italy, the majority language spoken is actually German, so dust off your GCSE.Is there anything else you would like to add?The hotel is really nice: take your swimmers to take advantage of the 'spa', and take your appetite to enjoy the huge evening meals.  As other travellers have said previously, if you can't sleep through church bells ask for a room at the back (they were very accommodating with our gruop's requests to change rooms, but I guess it depends how full they are).

We all thoroughly enjoyed his leadership and company.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?If you want a walking holiday amongst fantastic scenery based in a high quality hotel, you will enjoy this trip.Is there anything else you would like to add?Brilliant holiday - so memorable

    Totally Awe inspiring. You get right into the heart of the mountains.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?We were lucky we had 2 days of snow - it really made the trip even more spectacular than it would have been anyway.What did you think of your group leader?Carl, was very Knowledgeable, and was on hand with lots of suggestions for the day off. He kept the group together well, so we ended up at the summits all as one group. Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Please take walking poles! we were not expecting snow and it stopped us from doing a grade C walk that was scheduled. The poles were essential for the second day of snow as well which was grade C, without them it would have been a little dangerous.All drinks, treatments in the spa, bike hire @ The Adler are all put on your room tab so you don't need to take huge amounts of cash.Be prepared for a lot of food - buffet style breakfast and 5 course dinners!!! absolutely delicious though.Is there anything else you would like to add?I would really recommend if you have the funds to arrange for an extra day in Venice at the end as there is no time allocated on this trip.

    If it says not for those 'suffering vertigo' believe it. It means sheer drops, little protection and scree underfoot!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Getting up and then getting down! Being revived by excellent spa facilities ready to go for the next dayWhat did you think of your group leader?Very, very competentDo you have any advice for potential travellers?Please make sure you are comfortable with large drops, narrow ridges and lose scree underfoot. There are few options if you do a grade C week. But its exhilerating and worth the effort to get to the tops.

    Beautiful place,  more Austrian/German than you expect of an Italian countryside.  Hotel was excellent, very friendly.  Would recommend both the hotel and countryside.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Trenches on top of Mount Piano. What it be like for the soldiers stationed there.What did you think of your group leader?Friendly, was an excellent leader, especially for a large group on difficult treks.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Expect good walks, good food and good company.  Compared with the rest of Italy not that expensive.Is there anything else you would like to add?It's the sort of holiday you need another holiday to recover.
