This trip was fantastic in every way! The accommodation was lovely and the guide was great. I would say that the hiking was extremely challenging - they weren't kidding in the information about having the right shoes and being aware of knee issues. We had a great group participating in the activities but by the end of the week, many people opted out of the hikes. They were exhausting. We were lucky that no one fell and was injured. Most of the food at the agriturismo was terrific...the appetizers, pasta and desserts. The "main" courses, however, were quite disappointing...beef, rabbit, chicken and fish...not so good. They also did not tell us what we'd be getting beforehand or I would have opted out of most of those dishes. That's about the only thing I would change!
