Customer Reviews & Testimonials
Great formula, keep it going and don't sell out! Bavarian Alps and Lakes would interest me, although we have been to Ehrwald.
I think we've been to all of Collett's Walking Holiday locations except Andalucia and Tuscany although we have been to both of these locations independently.
I think your formula is ideal for the older, more experienced walker. Part of the trick is that your guys take the pace from the participants, rather than Alpine guides who lead from the front!
Keep it up!
I have probably had enough of end-to-end trekking at the age of 71. Your formula allows for the odd day off as well as a mix of easy/medium/hard grades. I will book again next year, having done Tuscany already this Spring.
We had a great 6 days with some interesting walks and weather. Beautiful scenery and memorable moments.
Combination of guided and self-guided walks. Self-contained stay in central location. Great staff members for our trip. Knew the routes, suggested good alternatives based on weather, our skills and the like, plus they made all activities fun.
Once again you delivered a superb mountain holiday for us in Austria, Location in Zugspitz Arena was delightful, hotel Sonnenspitze was well up to standard and your efficient and dedicated staff once again excelled in helping to make this a memorable week in the Tyrol. Thanks again Collett's!
The laminates for my solo trek were well-done. The descriptions were easy to follow. I was concerned only 1 day, when the clouds hung in the mountains, and I doubted that I would be able to find the trail. Fortunately, a local couple took me with them to the next hut. I might have otherwise hiked back down to the valley and hoped to resume the next day.
Hotel Hinteregger is elegant and welcoming. Your staff and the hotel's were thorough and patient.
A friend of a friend knew the company, but more importantly, I had a limited timeframe for this adventure, and your itinerary fit that. Now that I am familiar with Collett's, I will recommend you.
I was very impressed with how any queries I had were answered. Also, I had to change my departure date and was shocked to be given a refund - thank you! It was a lovely touch to have someone there to say hello and get me settled in! The sandwiches made by the team for lunch were a nice touch - and delicious. It was good to be offered a choice of just the sandwich or a larger lunch.
Office Hour was exceptionally well done by the team. Andy, Anna, Ben and Kate were what made the holiday special for me - very professional and they worked extremely hard to make everything work for the guests.
It was so flexible regarding
1. length of stay
2. accommodation options
3. I was on my own and wanted to walk with others but didn't feel very confident about being able to keep up - the different walking options were great.
Value for money?:
Totally. The holiday over-delivered.
One of the best holidays I've ever had - the team (Andy, Anna, Ben and Kate), the location, the hotel, the other guests and the walking options were all great.
I had heard of Collett's Mountain Holidays and wanted to try it out... I enjoyed the holiday and found staff very helpful. I liked the personal approach of the office hours! I did two walks on my own and staff were very helpful in providing information and details for local travel. The hotel is very good and the staff very helpful... I arrived on a Wednesday and was given a very good pack of information about the next days.s walks etc..
I thought the team, Anna, Andy, Ben and Kate, seemed to work very well together - all very professional.
I did an Inntravel holiday in the Appennines, near Porretta Terme - thought it might be a good Colletts destination, though not mid-July-August. Have you thought of North-west Italy - Val d-Aosta or similar? Or Ireland
We have had several previous holidays with Collett's. Collett's provides an excellent combination of flexibility, great locations, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff and a good range of accommodation including self-catering. Office hour always entertaining. Other guests tend to be like minded people and this time it was great to have other families with teenage children. Ehrwald was a beautiful village and there was the opportunity to go cycling, swimming and do klettersteig as well as walking.
Office Hour - Always an enjoyable and sociable occasion. The room in Hotel Sonnenspitze was very well appointed and welcoming. The Collett's staff were outstanding - personable, knowledgeable and helpful.
for us, the availability of self-catering accommodation is a real plus. Our teenage girls enjoyed the office hour and the social nature of the walks. The hut-to-hut walks were well thought out and both the routes and the huts were interesting and varied.
