“For many years I traveled the world, organized tours and independently I travel a lot and reasonably fit for my age. i have read that this trip : " Walking Our walking tours are designed for active adults and offer a well-paced mix of walks for all levels of fitness. Most walks are of moderate difficulty and are up to four hours in length. For the more adventurous there are often optional, moderate to strenuous hikes of up to eight hours duration in some locations. You will be accompanied by two Tour Leaders on our walking tours, they will either guide separate hikes or offer additional activities " And i have called the Company, before checking in and i have been told that every morning they will offer different options for a walk. At the end of the first day, the guides said that we will not be able to come with them the next day,which is the second day of the trip, and they did not offered an alternative, Apart from wandering alone near the lake. two women indeed abstained on the second day , but I came to hike and insisted that I wanted to come and do my best and climb. During the trip, the guide said there is NOT a possibility that I may rest or stop on the up hill and pressured me unreasonably to go fast, when I was breathless which could have endangered my health. The Group also pressured me unacceptably, that I will keep up with the pace.. I felt that I could not and I paused to rest, and I joined them when they turned back to return downwards the mountain, without any problem. At the end of the day I felt very bad about all that and I expressed my wish to leave the tour. The company announced that it is impossible to get refunded and pressed the guides to offer alternative plans and provide us with vegetarian food properly The atmosphere was good after we had positive conversation with the instructors and than I decided to stay and try to enjoy the trip. I thanked them for their good will, and I thought that now I can actually enjoy the trip They also went on to say that they have no contact with the company, and the company has no idea what's going on, so they also change their routes and add miles as they please, because they are the freelancer and decide what will be here. Vegetarian food arrived just after the first 4 days and it sparingly compared to what meat eater received. for two days we walked in other alternatives and I made sure to thank very much for instructors in theappreciation and recognition for their effort they make for us regarding the routes and food. on the fifth day the parents of the young guide has joined us and it was the first time and the last we received a seperate hike which also was just crumbles of a normal hikesince we were waiting four houres for the stronger group to join us which is very unprofessional in edition he also alwais underlined that we must rush everyday to finish the hike because they need to cook dinner Before the seventh day the guides recommended I buy hiking canes and I did that. On the seventh day of the trip was a climb of about 200 meters where it was hard for me, then told me that one of the instructors that in the following days it will become much harder and I could not join the hike, and if I want I can do shopping, go to a museum, take a bus, and travel alone contrary to what was promised to us I told him that that's not why I bought the hiking canes and chose this trip. From that moment I realized that once again there is a problematic matter with a young guide with a military /commandos attitude , and no one to talk to anymore. At this point I decided to leave the tour, that's not why I crossed the world and paid 4000 dollar.”

“the walks could have included more peaks and been more challenging. There were two guides and the group could have been split to enable the fitter guys to go further”
