Amazing walking in awesome scenery
Collett's offered what I was looking for - sunshine, mountains, amazing views, challenging walks, the opportunity to walk with others or on my own, catered accommodation and the chance to meet new people and you offered all of that!
Sam in the UK office was brilliant and extremely helpful. I have no complaints at all about the process!
On Arrival Max was great and very helpful, telling us all we needed to know and giving us a tour of the chalet. Great at making us feel very welcome and at home. The evening meals were excellent. Breakfasts offered a large amount of choice and I've never seen quite so much squeezed into a roll at lunchtime! 🙂 Excellent all round.
Office Hour is such a great idea! Staff were helpful, friendly, came and chatted without waiting to be asked and were genuinely interested in finding out what sort of day you'd had. It's great being able to meet others in the chalet and the other accommodation and compare notes. Staff were really helpful if you wanted to do something a bit different and were full of ideas. Al had mentioned a good walk for me as a geologist but I'd forgotten the name; Tom texted him to find out all the details and showed me the route and gave me details of buses and times too which was really helpful. In fact, nothing seemed too onerous a job for any of the staff.
Activities were very well organised and whatever speed you walked at, everyone was made to feel part of the same team. When one walker on one of the guided walks that I did found a particular path challenging, staff were extremely patient and absolutely brilliant at reassuring her.
I had an absolutely amazing time. As a single traveller doing this for the first time I was apprehensive but I would wholeheartedly recommend this holiday to anyone, whatever your age and whether travelling alone or with friends or family. Staff are friendly, genuine and helpful, the accommodation and food are great, I had some amazing walks in awesome scenery and made some great friends who I'll keep in touch with. I'd definitely recommend Collett's!
