    WALKING IN SARDINIA

    This was an excellent holiday with some interesting terrain and a few historic site as well as a couple of relaxed days without any long walks and time to ourselves.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The last walk for me was quite an achievement as it was 15 km long and had some really rough bouldery streambed type terrain. The final destination at Cala Longa with a lovely long relaxed swin and return by boat to Cala Gonone ended an excellent week.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Ruedy was an truely excellent leader. Never trying to hurry those of us who were older and slower than most and allowing the 'gazelles' amongs us to proceed with out being held up. Also when one of our number had a cut knee he had all the skills to treat it and to accompany her for the rest of the distance which, as there was no road access to the path, says alot for his skills. His instructions were very clear and precise. Excellent!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    My advice to other potential travellers is to be sure to have good boots and not just treking shoes. The heat was a bit of a problem on day one  28°C and we walked 16km and up 600m on a tarmac road.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I would have classified the whole trip as Moderate and not as Easdy/moderate. Longest walk about 16km and we did not do the last bit of the Tiscali climb so can't tell about the difficulty of that.

    WALKING IN SARDINIA

    Amazing landscapes, mountains and beaches. The hotel was comfortable and the food was great.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The walk and scamble to Tiscali was truely memorable for its challenging but stunning route.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our group leader Rudy was the most organised and calm person I have met! He led the group from the back so ensuring whatever the abilities of the group members all had an enjoyable trip. He was an excellent guide who made the trip very memorable.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Bring walking boots and be prepared to be fed a lot by the hotel!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Highly recommend this trip

    WALKING IN SARDINIA

    For anyone with coeliac disease, this trip is perfection. You get wonderful food, and lots of it. I managed to put on weight in spite of the energy expenditure, which was considerable!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    It was the scrambling bits - both the boulders at the end of the Gorropu Gorge, and having Rudy encouragibng me to climb right up to Tiscali. I never thought I would be able to do such things. I can't thank him enough for saying go ahead

    What did you think of your group leader?

    see above. Rudy is a gem, and a gent, what else can I say

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Anyone my age (63) have a go. I walk a dog 3 hours every day for exercise, I have a degenerative nerve condition which makes me weaker than I would like to be but the walks were great and certainly stretched every joint, plus overcoming the fear of heights - go for it. I wish I was still there

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    If you want a fascinating view into prehistoric Sardinia, plus some amazing walks, plus some adventure, plus some swimming, plus the best food you will ever eat, go for this holiday

    WALKING IN SARDINIA

    I found the terrain more difficult than I was expecting, although managed. Thought should be graded moderate. Group great company, leader Rudi fantastic.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Finishing the walks in one piece. Views from the top of tuila.Great beaches, esp cala luna at the end of a tough walk.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Rudi was exceptional, planned everything down to the last detail. He made the experience very enjoyable

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make sure you are aware of the terrain and potential difficulty of the walks.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Overall the holiday was enjoyable, but was dissapointed with the hotel as very limited facilities. Very noisy at night. Staff were great food excelent. Nowhere to sit and read in sun.

    WALKING IN SARDINIA

    The Sardinia trip certainly makes walking more interesting, due to quite a bit of clambering over large stones and boulders.  I thought that this made it much more fun than the usual tramping whilst admiring a view - and there was also some archaeology, to do with the pre-Roman Nuragic people. 

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Sorry to those that didn't, but I particularly enjoyed the optional riding, which was over different terrain from the walking.  I did this on the last morning, when I was given a decent-sized horse, Barony, who was smoothe and responsive.  You don't need to book several hours, as indicated on the trip notes, and the E20 (I added a E5 tip, which was promptly offered back to me) I spent on one hour was well worth it - I should have done two.  I'd advise going early, to save the horses from the heat.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Professional and enthusiastic, with the patience that's occasionally required.  and a smile I'll remember.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    You might like to pack ear-plugs, as there was noise on the Saturday night outside the hotel, and the walls let through some sound from adjacent rooms.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The hotel is conveniently close to the centre of this small town.  Its breakfasts could be improved - perhaps by providing cerials and an occasional change of the daily bread rolls.  I found the locals to be particularly friendly and helpful.  An excellent holiday, which could have been longer.

    WALKING IN SARDINIA

    A really lovely holiday - a fabulous, friendly family hotel, great food, fantastic scenery and some very good walking. I would recommend this holiday to anyone who likes good coastal walks.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The trip to Tiscali was wonderful. It was quite a challenging ascent to the top but it was worth it. And the views on the way down were spectacular.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eric was great. He really looked after us and was very knowledgeable about the area. He was also good fun to spend time with. He has lots of anecdotes and stories to tell of an evening to keep you entertained!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take some good walking boots and drink lots of water - otherwise, just enjoy it - it's a wonderful holiday.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This is my fourth Exodus holiday. All four were superb and I only have positive things to say about them. I think Exodus is a great company and I'm looking forward to my next trip - thank you!
