Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
If you get the chance to create a kitty for tipping, make sure you do. William took all the hassle out. He always showed you the tip or handed it to one of us to give to the driver. He even produced a statement at the end of the holiday detailing where every penny went. Not that anyone paid much attention to it, but it was a nice touch.
I suppose what would have been helpful in other reviews would to have more packing information or suggestions. We packed as regular travellers going on a package holiday with a few walks in mind. (The standard clothing for day and smarter evening wear).
If I could do if all again I would bring some light short sleeved shirts for the day like craghopper type. So that they can be rinsed through and used a few times over the two weeks. Some really cheap throw away t shirts. With the heat, sweat and rucksack rubbing on your back it tends to wreck your cotton t-shirts. Light cargo shorts for the day again quick drying to rinse through. Don't rely on laundry as I did and ended up with a couple of very small polo tops. Bring a hat an a bandanna or snood. A rain mac is essential and a small compact brolly will be useful not just for the rain but as a portable shade. I brought some light trainers but should have brought walking sandles. Not cool looking at home but perfect for here. An additional pair of good walking trainers are needed also for some of the walks. Pack evening wear light, nothing we did was in the slightest formal.
You have to transport your cases yourself while at a train station or a short walk to a hotel, so something easily portable and keep the packing light.
Most meals were included, but where they were not - cost us about £5 per head. This was for a number of quality dishes and a few beers. Let the guide order and don't be afraid to try things. The food is brilliant !!!
