"Donal led walks for us on four holidays – Alicante Mountains, Matarranya, Amalfi and Alpujarras. In the case of the recent walking holidays in Amalfi and Alpujarras he organised the entire holiday – planning and budgeting the holiday, selecting the hotel and walks and the other leader and delivering. Our group was 20 to 25 walkers with walks organised into two grades of walks. He is an exceptionally good walk leader and walk organiser who prepares meticulously and establishes a good rapport with all walkers. Our group is highly delighted with the service provided by Donal and would recommend Donal - further details can be provided on request"

'Donal was one of the leaders in a walking holiday we organised in the Alicante Mountains. We were so impressed by him that we insisted the Company who organised our next holiday in Matarranya used Donal as the main walk leader. After that we asked Donal himself to organise a holiday for us on the Amalfi Coast last year. Each time he did a superb job.....'.
You really did us proud. The hotel couldn’t have been better. They were clearly geared up to walkers. Nothing was too much trouble. They entertained us with cookery demonstrations and fed us wonderful local, home cooked Italian dishes. You organised fantastic walks for both the more leisurely and the more challenging walkers. As always, you guided us with great good humour, skill and professionalism. We know we are in safe hands when we walk with you and that all our needs will be met'.
"After enjoying three walking holidays organised by Donal I’m looking forward to the next.... Always well prepared and organised, Donal chooses excellent accommodation offering lovely food and wine and relaxing sociable evenings. A lovely variety of walks, tailored to the needs of the group at two levels and supported by skilled and highly knowledgeable local guides"
