How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Our Explore leader was very competent, cheerful and very fair. She knew her job and always briefed us well for the excitements to come. She organised lots of group meals and joined in the fun.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Take some sturdy shoes (trainers) for Mount Etna and warm clothes (an anorak) . The wind can be cool, even on a hot day. We wore mainly sandals, but sometimes trainers were more suitable on the rough surfaces. Some people in my group were bitten by mosquitoes, so be prepared. Sunscreen is also necessary.
Do you have anything else to add?
One covers a lot of ground on this tour, but I would not have missed any of it. Be positive and you will enjoy it all.
