My twinsister and I wanted to walk in Scotland. We like the inhospitable of the Highlands. With google I found Hillwalk Tours and they offered us exactly what we liked: good information on the side, posibilities to choose the walk we liked and all information we needed for our trip.

We have just returned from our first walk organized by Hillwalk Tours. We chose to do The Dingle Way and are very glad we did. Hillwalk took care of all our arrangements at bed and breakfasts and then arranged for the innkeepers to transfer our luggage to our next destination. All of the bed and breakfasts were clean, comfortable and... More

My friend and I completed the 5-day day gentle hike of the Dingle Way in September. It was a great hike! From the moment we booked our trip with Hillwalk Tours (with Misja) to finalizing our itinerary the service we received was excellent. Any questions we had were promptly answered by email. The walking pack was very well organized and... More

We could not have been more supported by both Hillwalk Tours as well as the people who ran the B&B's we stayed at along the Dingle Way. Hillwalk Tours arranged these for us and we are full of gratitude. We were fed hearty breakfasts, given encouraging/ caring smiles and were received with such warmth at the end of each hiking...

Hillwalk Tours handling of our hike choice was irreprochable and above all, very reassuring. From the first exchange by E-mail (with Camille), to the information package, the accomodations and the personnalized modifications made to the original plan, everything was handled with care and expediency. The information package was so complete we didn't always take the time to read things properly.... More

Hillwalk Tours is incredible! They crafted a special tour for me that alternated hiking one day with a rest day/touring day the next. And they will do this for one person or many. Everything went smoothly and the B&Bs I stayed at were wonderful. The hosts/hostesses could not have been more welcoming and helpful -- even beyond what a B&B... More
