“Our trip was fabulous the leader was super great English and interacted to keep the 6 children on the trip focused and happy. He showed them how to look after the donkeys and lead them, he was very conscious of safety regarding the donkeys. He was equally good with the adults and the whole group jelled very well. He dealt with 2 problems of illness within the group arranging day transport for them to have days off and rejoining group. Not an easy task with three countries involved.”

“The trip was excellent. The walking was challenging but really enjoyable. Our kids aged 10 and 12 loved the donkeys and learned a lot about getting them ready in mornings, helping to load the gear onto them. Our guide Yoan was superb. He had boundless patience and energy. Encouraging younger children on tougher ascents and generally creating a great atmosphere for the whole group.”
