Customer Reviews & Testimonials
We booked the holiday as we could not find any walking guides for the area. Therefore we did not use any organised walks but used your laminates on self guided walks. These proved good and we had a very good time. The team were very helpful in discussing the details related to the area and walks. You covered an area we wanted to explore and provided the background information on walks, as we could not find the information elsewhere.
My husband and I had a very long day which involved 14 hours of driving and Bank Holiday traffic. We arrived feeling completely frazzled and not altogether with it. Kate met us at the door with a lovely big smile and could obviously tell that we'd had a long day and she took very good care of us. A drink was in our hands within seconds of having sat down and moments later the horror of our journey was a distant memory. A big thank you to Kate for such a warm welcome.
Office Hour was one of the highlights of our day. It was great talking to the Collett's team and planning the next days walks with them and it was also great talking to other guests about what they'd done that day. The Ridge Walk was always a good topic of conversation. The weather was kind to us so we got to enjoy Office Hour on the terrace which was a lovely way to relax and chat about our day before dinner.
Austria was the perfect destination for us. After a long drive to get there my husband didn't want to get back in the car any time soon and luckily he didn't need to because public transport was close by and very reliable. Getting to and from each days walk was incredibly easy and absolutely no hassle at all.
A friend of mine recommended the Dolomites with Collett's two years ago which we enjoyed so much we went to the Picos with Collett's last year. Deciding to go with Collett's again for this years holiday was an easy decision.
We first heard about your Austria set up whilst in the Picos last year so we were fully aware that this was new and that the staff hadn't been there long themselves before we arrived but you would have thought they'd been there years by how happy, settled and knowledgeable they all were. They showed a great passion for the job and a way with people that you just don't see very often. Robert and Lesley are clearly very fond of the team which was lovely to see. Collett's staff are a special breed, if we could clone them and have more of them the world would be a better place.
We've enjoyed all three of our Collett's holidays and have recommended you to friends.
This was our third adventure with Colletts and was another great experience. The location and magnificent scenery, challenging walks together with delightful accommodation helped make this a wonderful part of our holiday time in Europe. As usual the staff who assisted with our walks and made our stay cannot be underestimated and are highly commended for their support. Many thanks to Kate, Kelly, Clare and Dafydd, for making our time in Ehrwald a memorable one.
Your young staff did you credit. They are a bunch of super people who were very competent and very good company.
Robert and Leslie clearly love this area. I think they would be keen to remain involved.
Fantastic trip to Badia a few years ago. Best holiday of my life. Very friendly, helpful and efficient staff and most of all a family run company giving personal service second to none in my limited experience.
The staff is very good and very helpful and should be complimented. I have recommended you to numerous friends and colleagues.Much more likely to book again for a new destination (been to all the current ones by now). What is on your radar?
We went with friends who arranged the booking but we were very pleased with the Walking Holiday package.
We decided we would like a new type of holiday and your brochure looked appealing. You were professional and friendly. We were booking our first walking trip, therefore, apprehensive, your staff answered every question. We had the perfect holiday with your company in the Austrian Alps. We would like to visit the Dollomites next. Perhaps Switzerland would be nice.
It was a great pleasure to be part of Collett's first ever season in the Austrian Alps. We enjoyed everything about it. The friendly and helpful staff, the great walks you organised and the lovely hotel including the five course meals. Thanks to you all in Ehrwald and we hope you have a great summer. We cant wait to return.
We had the great honour to be the first guests in Austria.
This is just to say a big thank you to everyone involved for the great week we had.
From the very first moment we arrived everyone made us feel very welcome.
Please could you pass on our thanks to Kate, Clare, Kelly, Dafydd, Robert and Leslie.
They really did do their best to ensure we had a great holiday.
I have attached a couple of photographs from our week.
