TURKEY in 2014
After Christmas we all managed to get away for a family holiday to Istanbul, Turkey. We had a wonderful time and we were really taken with this vibrant and friendly metropolis. It has been on our mind for sometime so we have now decided to introduce a new walking holiday to Turkey for 2014 - it will be in our 2014 brochure which we hope will be out in the middle of the year.
If you would like to receive a copy of the pre departure notes when they become available, please let us know.
2013 WALKING HOLIDAYS FILLING UP FAST
We are very happy to see that our 2013 Walking Holidays are filling up fast, quite a few of our walks are already full and general bookings are strong so that is very encouraging. At the present time the following walks are fully booked:
Sea to the Summits (2 vacancies for the last 8 nights - Chamonix & Grindelwald)
On the Celtic Way
Follow the Gourmet Trail
Explore Slovenia & Croatia
Of course we realise that booking numbers change constantly so even though the above tours may be fully booked now, tomorrow we may have a vacancy - if you are interested in any of the above tours, please contact Trish and ask to have your name put on the waiting list.
All other tours are available at the moment. Our season this year will begin with Morocco on 6th April and finish with Africa on the 15th October. Our Australian season will commence on the 23rd November with the Grampians & Great Ocean Road.
ON THE SNAIL TRAIL
"Will I keep up with the group ?" This is a question which many first time walkers with WGA often ask themselves - with this question in mind we decided to introduce the "Snail Trail" to our program back in 2011. The average daily walking time on this tour is 4 hours and the pace is leisurely. Of course not only is this walk very well suited for those guests who haven't been with us before but also for our many repeat guests who are now getting a little older !
So back to that initial question - "Will I keep up with the group ?" - the answer is "yes" and you will enjoy it even more if you do some regular exercise and walking before you join us !
On the Snail Trail scheduled for June 2013 still has 3 vacancies available !
ON THE SNAIL TRAIL -> TOUR IMPRESSION
We would like to give you an update with availability for our Holiday Apartments for the coming season. Bookings are very strong for June and September - we still have availability in all other months - so don't forget about our lovely apartments when planning your 2013 European holiday.
We shall be doing some renovations on Apt No. 2 during Winter - we have just received the planning permit to build a balcony overlooking our enchanting courtyard. This addition will allow our guests a delightful outdoor area to relax and enjoy their meals during the Summer months. Please refer to our architectural sketch!
Happy & Safe travelling!
