We have recently returned from the Wessex Ancient Kingdom holiday in Dorset/Wilts. The organisation and communication was outstanding. The walk material and maps were of the highest standard and we enjoyed the variety of walks. We were very happy with the pubs booked by Foot Trails. Andy, the taxi man who moved our bags and took us to the start of some walks was friendly and flexible. And one other major thing .... this was a holiday interrupted by Covid. Two days into the holiday at the end of June we were pinged by the NHS App. We had to abandon the holiday and return home to isolate. Foot Trails could not have been more flexible or more considerate and allowed us to re-book the rest of the holiday, at our convenience, any time until the end of 2022. This was an exceptional response and we are really glad that we were able to complete the holiday in October. We highly recommend Foot Trails.

This was my first booking with Foot Trails and I can honestly say that from the initial enquiry through to completion of our trip, the service has been second to none. This is one of the best short breaks I have ever taken. We did the 3 night, single base walking break in Somerset and it was fantastic. The accommodation selected by David and Alison was sublime and the trails easy to follow. We really enjoyed opening our box on arrival at the accommodation and looking through the itinerary and maps. We particularly liked that the maps were in visual and written form. This ensured smooth trail walks throughout. We are already discussing next years walking adventure and are definitely going to rebook with Foot Trails. If i could give 6 starts I absolutely would! Thank you for such fantastic service and for helping us make memories to treasure :)

The people at Foot Trails are very good to deal with. My walks were well organised and the notes easy to follow. I would walk with them again if I'm lucky enough to have another trip to the UK.

16 days in four locations in the Cotswolds and Devonshire, yet each day was a different adventure. Foot Trails customized our trip to match our specific desires while providing opportunities we hadn't known were possible. The walking directions were exceptionally detailed and the accommodations were wonderful. We are already talking about when we can go again!

We booked a four day walking holiday with Foot Trails in September . Although the company does Inn to Inn walks they also arrange holidays which are based in one location with daily walks in the area, and we chose this type, partly because both of us are in are upper seventies and we thought it would be more relaxing! We stayed in a lovely hotel in Chillington, S. Devon, and followed the daily walk schedule provided by Foot Trails. We were provided with waterproof maps and directions. The directions included interesting facts about the areas and sightseeing tips. The information was mostly up to date...a few minor changes could be made. We had asked that the walks be around 10km, and this was the average length of the walks. They were very enjoyable and with the maps we were able to make the occasional changes to shorten the walks or tailor them to our wishes. We were very happy with our choice and with the information provided. Dinners( not included) were taken in the nearby pub...which were also excellent. Special mention should be made of the taxi driver who took us from Totnes to Chillington and also picked us up to take us to the trailhead. He was excellent, safe efficient and helpful. Overall it was a well organized holiday and we would choose the same company again.
