"Slovenia - September 2021. Even with the Covid and PCR requirements it was a great trip. Largely due to the group dynamics – I thought we were a particularly sociable and cheery bunch. Thank you for all the hard work you put in. It was very, very worthwhile. I look forward to seeing what opportunities there may be next year."

"Slovenia - September 2019. Wonderful, inspiring walks that offered enough challenge. Excellent, knowledgeable, and helpful guides. Comfortable hotel with good friendly service. It was nice to stay in a hotel that was locally owned and family run. Excellent holiday experience." "

- Jane Rouse - September 2019

"Slovenia - September 2019. I thought the pre-holiday information was excellent. We loved the hotel, particularly the staff. They were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is particularly good and the dinner was always very enjoyable with fresh fruit available if we didn’t always want pudding or cake.I thought our guides were brilliant. They made it fun, even though I found some of the walks were challenging. I felt a sense of achievement at the end of the day after a tough walk.The organisation was very good and everything went smoothly. There was always an alternative if we weren’t able to complete a more difficult walk for any reason. The lunch stops were always expecting us and we enjoyed them. I did find some of it challenging, but I was very pleased that I was able to complete some of the more difficult walks and felt great afterwards. I really loved the holiday. I particularly enjoyed the company of the rest of the group, who were a variety of personalities. We had great fun. We are planning our next Secret Hills Walking holiday for next year. We have already recommended Secret Hills to friends and would do so again. Alan did a great job organising our holiday. We will definitely be back."

"Slovenia - September 2019. We enjoyed the guided walking experience but felt a bit too slow for us – last 2 days were more our preferred strenuousness, but slow and a bit short for us, first day very disappointing but to an extent it was always going to be! Perhaps we could have split into 3 groups as there were so few of us or the descriptions could have implied a level of fitness/previous hill walking required. But we were the youngest and possibly the fittest! The option to slow the pace was there, but not to raise the game."

- Bridget Bradford - September 2019

"Slovenia - September 2019. The guides were excellent, and the group as a whole were great and worked as a team during the walks. I personally was encouraged, and I would say inspired to challenge myself and achieve treks that I may not have otherwise done. A fabulous experience. Absolutely loved it! From the flights to the hotel, the lead on the ground Alan, the guides, the walks and the group as a whole. What more can I say! "
