Walking in Crete
We would just like to say how much we enjoyed our “Spring in Crete” holiday, from which we returned last week. Our leader, Kath, was excellent: she led some delightful walks, was knowledgeable about the flora, led us to (many!) delightful tavernas, and was always attentive to the needs of the party.
Camaraderie and Cats in Samos
In October 2010, I took my 12-year old son Oliver to Samos on our first Ramblers holiday. I’m a single parent and very much appreciated someone else doing all of the arrangement; in the past I had exhausted myself planning, driving, cooking etc, whilst trying to enjoy myself too.
Rewarding walking in Northern Greece
Journalist Alexandra Topping loved her recent walking holiday in the wild Zagori region of Northern Greece. In a most evocative article for The Guardian, she describes it as “the perfect Greek holiday”. We agree – our tour to Epirus and the Pindhos Mountains is based in the same area, and is one of our most popular Greek destinations.
Pelion and the Sporades
Having sampled Crete, Patmos and Samos in previous years with Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, in 2008 we booked the Pelion and the Sporades holiday, only having to cancel it at the last moment due to my illness. February this year took us to Cuba with Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, and we were determined to complete our 2008 plans by booking the Greek holiday again this year for September 13th.
Karpenissi: Walking in Greece
Forests of fir trees, snow capped mountain tops, bubbling streams, and crackling log fires. Am I in Switzerland, Austria, perhaps the Italian Alps? No, I’m in Greece!, Karpenissi to be exact, located approximately 4 hours north of Athens, on the southern slopes of Mount Tymfristos.
Secrets of Southern Evia
Excitement and anticipation of our holiday was tempered somewhat by the ongoing BA strikes but, due to the excellence of the Ramblers Worldwide Holidays organisational team, and some last minute arrangements by our leader, Hugh, all went well and our flight, bus journey and ferry connection were re-arranged with the minimum of fuss.
