Sara (the guide) was brilliant. We had a mixed ability group and she looked after everyone really well. I wasn't sure what to expect when it was rated as a difficult walk and I'm not great with heights but it was fine. There are railings along most of the route so I felt very safe. It's a pretty accessible walk for anyone of general fitness.

It was good. The collection was on time. A day tour of approx. 8 hours was planned. We were back at the hotel after 7 hours. We would have loved to have had a little more time for the hike to take photos in peace or to enjoy the beautiful landscape. Unfortunately, this was neglected. Hence only a good one.

Despite a cold and windy (almost storm) start, it was a very nice hike. Although only about 7km but with constant up and down stairs and tunnels were also included. The weather kept getting better and the views were breathtaking. We had a lot of fun and a great time. Gladly again. Thanks Sarah
