“Alessandro and Elizabeth were the most exceptional guides I have come across in my many years of travelling.  Alessandro’s passion and knowledge of his local region

had the trip come alive as well as his insight into the Italian food and way of life. 

Elizabeth was superb…. Again with her personal touch and knowledge of the history but also her genuine caring.. making a weary traveller feel at home… a feat in itself

and one I must acknowledge in its importance.

This was my first walking tour with CW and after this exceptional week will not be my last. 

After being a world traveller since 17 years ago I can honestly say what fabulous tour guides like Alessandro and Elizabeth who had a passion for their work, the amazing food, art and history this was the most amazing week I have ever, ever experienced.

5 stars!  As I am continuing my journey my thoughts are veering to my next CW trip.”

“ Seven days of walking and hiking in breathtaking

scenic hillsides and villages, followed with delicious

local food and wines at lunch and suppers. The CW

guides, Ivana and Dani, who are very proud of their

Dalmatia heritage, successfully shared the history and

lore of the various regions with us.

This tour, “Croatia: The Dalmatian Coast” lived up to all

my expectations of a CW tour: excellent guiding

(knowledgeable, friendly, attentive to each & every

participant), delicious food , beautiful accommodations,

and the fun and interaction with the other tour

participants and guides, certainly has made the trip a

most memorable travel experience.”

“This walking safari gives

a real sense of wild Africa.

The walks also give a

sense of the place of early

man in the natural world. I

felt really at home on the

savannah and it is

amazing that you can walk

among the herd animals

without them running off. I

felt very much in contact

with life. The entire

experience was well

supported. Despite being

in the wild, we had all the

comforts that were needed

to make this a wonderful

trip. We certainly felt

spoiled by the great

treatment we received.”

“That's Claire with her head up. I don't think that cheetah ever saw us, she was so focused first on a

topi, then gave up and turned her attention to some impalas in the other direction and came over

and jumped up on our vehicle. I was standing up watching when she jumped down off the other

vehicle and came around the back of ours but I never guessed she'd be in my face in a split second.

Both our drivers just told us to be very quiet and calm. RIGHT! Francie (9Yrs) dived under the back

seat and hid completely. Startling, frightening, but exciting.” Kenya Family

“Everything about this trip was superb! Fannuel was the best guide I have ever experienced. The places

we stayed could not have been more perfect. All staff was attentive and generous with their time.”
