Tour Reviews

Vibeke Kjems Mortensen

Hiking on La Gomera

Vi var to par der henover nytår havde en skøn vandreuge på La Gomera. Vi har været meget tilfredse med kommunikation og service med Wild Rover Travel. Vandreturene var godt beskrevet i den medfølgende bog og stierne vel afmærket. Vi havde høj sol hver eneste dag og nød øens smukke og vilde natur. Vi vil helt sikkert bruge Wild Rover Travel igen en anden gang.

The Rota Vicentina

Vandreturen gik henover nytåret 2019 til 2020 Logistik, kort og overnatninger på meget forskellige lokationer, var et skønt blik ind i Portugals kultur. Alt har fungeret perfekt, der har ikke været noget.
Selve vandringen ad Rota Vicentina var storslående og distancerne passede os rigtigt godt, ca. 20 km pr dag, portugeserne var meget imødekommende og hjælpsomme. På dele af turen var mærkningen ikke så tydelig, det hjalp os med GPS punkterne på telefonen. Vi kommer helt sikkert tilbage til Portugal for at vandre ad stier og ud langs havet. Kan klart anbefale Wild Rover Travel, det har været et godt bekendskab
