Reviews – The Silk Trail

Thank you for another great walking experience with Spanish Steps, simply the best company to walk with. I shall be looking for the 2020 walking dates on your website. When they do appear, I will make my decision as to my choice and advise you accordingly. Norman  (Lancs) May 2019

Maggie and I would like to thank you all for such a great holiday last week. We really appreciated your hospitality, free-flowing wine and encouragement. We enjoyed all of the walks and Peter’s trips up the hair-raising mountain sides. We had a good journey back to Edinburgh but it was a bit of a shock when the aircraft doors opened – not quite the temperature and relaxed atmosphere of Competa. Andy & Maggie (Edinburgh) May 2019
Thanks for making this holiday as enjoyable as all of the others you have provided me with. I especially enjoyed the stay in Cómpeta with its low key ambiance and lack of day tourists. I look forward to being with you again in the not too distant future. MIchael (New York) May 2019
It was a splendid week walking the Silk Trail. Thank you for your skilful organization in arranging such a great holiday. The magic of Spanish Steps continues! I thoroughly enjoyed being back in the sierras of Andalucia with the profusion of wild flowers and the wonderful views. We were as always well rewarded at the end of the day with delicious meals and wine which was much appreciated. Margaret (Berks) May 2018
We would like to thank you for a memorable week. The walking was spectacular (and challenging), the weather ideal, the accommodation delightful, the food and drink excellent, and the friendship and attention from you unsurpassed. We greatly appreciated meeting and being guided by Andy who we are sure, should he wish to become more involved, be a great addition to the management team. We don’t think we are finished with Spanish Steps yet ……. we still have the Two Continents to do. Hugh and Jackie (Surrey) May 2018
Muchos gracias for another great Spanish Steps holiday. A selection of amazingly scenic walks and a very interesting group of fellow guests made for another fantastic week. The house in Competa is as quirky as ever, and the hotels in Frigiliana and Maro, together with excellent food throughout the week, were well up to your usual high standards. Hugh & Ishbel (Ayrshire) 
Thank you for a fabulous week on The Silk Trail, s memorable as ever , tough, challenging but thoroughly enjoyed. As always the meals and wine flowed and we had fun evenings! Always love the house in Competa and felt very much at home. Sallie (Surrey) May 2018
Thanks for an excellent holiday. Over the years I have been on 30 plus Ramblers or HF walking holidays (three in the last year alone) and last week was the best and most enjoyable of them all. Ian  (York) May 2018
Just wanted to thank you once again for a terrific holiday experience. You always put a hundred and ten percent into your holidays and it shows. Hope to see you all again soon. Chrissie (York) May 2018. 
Many thanks for a wonderful holiday. Walking was amazing. Challenging but in a good way 😀. Wild flowers and scents were beautiful. Emily (Edingburgh) May 2018
Thanks for a lovely week walking between the beautiful white villages. It was all very enjoyable, the accommodation – especially the Spanish Steps house – the meals, the company, and of course the walks. I had a really good time! Christine (Herts) May 2017
Just a word to say a big Thank You for organising a super week for us on the Silk Trail.
Everything was just great – walks, food, and new companions, all topped up with lovely Spanish sunshine. 4 nights in Nerja was quite sufficient, Mike+Kenneith walked back over to Maro one day, not surprising really. e all explored the caves on the last morning, taking the little tourist train. Maureen (Surrey) May 2017
This just a quick note to say how much we both enjoyed our holiday with you and we really appreciated the fact that nothing was too much trouble for any of you. All the accommodation was very comfortable, especially the Competa house. The walking was hard but very enjoyable – its great to see parts of the country that very few people get to visit. We will certainly be coming back in the not too distant future. Mark & Ann (Oxford) October 2016
Many thanks for the holiday which was great and just what we needed. Although the theme was different, it was every bit as enjoyable as our Two Continents holiday last year, even the walk in the rain. Please pass on our thanks to Sue and Andy? You all put a huge amount into making the week a success, and you should not under-estimate how much it was appreciated.  Elizabeth & John (Edinburgh) October 2016
Once again thanks for organising another fantastic holiday for us – loved every minute of it! Andrew & Ros (Solihull) Oct 2016
We would like to thank Spanish steps for a wonderful holiday,  your attention and pre-planning are to be admired and we all appreciated it. I have spread the word to all who ask me how we got on in Andulacia, so you may gain some extra new faces for your future holidays. I will continue to review the website to see if you are going to return to Morocco as we would like to be part of your party. Jo & Alex (Falkirk) Oct 2016
We had a fab experience of walking in the Silk Trail. Everything from our great guide Andy to the food, sunshine and glorious scenery. Each day had a new venture with fun. Jim certainly stole the show on the donkey!! The very deserved beer at the end of each walk makes me thirsty even back home in wet Ireland. We have such fond memories of Andalucia. Many thanks again, Dolores & Louise (Dublin) June 2016
Just a quick note to thank you and the Team Strange for a great week of Spanish sunshine, scoff, steep slopes and levity. If the others enjoyed it as much as me you have another A1 to chalk up on the success scale. Patrick (Midlothian) April 2016
A belated thanks for a wonderful holiday – again. I have run out of superlatives to describe how much we enjoy our holidays with Spanish Steps. I know the weather cheated us out of one of the walks but the others were as enjoyable as ever and it was good to revisit certain parts from previous holidays. Spanish Steps hospitality was up to its usual high standards and Andy is certainly keeping these going. Dorothy & Chris (Cumbria) April 2016
I would like to thank you for making my holiday so enjoyable. I haven’t stopped talking about it since getting back. I would certainly recommend the holiday to any one who wanted fresh air, good walks, excellent food and meeting like minded people Paul (West Midlands) April 2016
Thanks for the fantastic week. We enjoyed every minute and hopefully will return soon for another Spanish Steps adventure. Linda and Martin (Hants) May 2015
Just got home from our stay in Malaga and would like to say a big thank you to Spanish Steps for an enjoyable holiday.Peter and Andy looked after us very well, fitting the walking to our abilities. The food and the company was excellent. Thanks again. James and Marie (Newcastle). May 2015
Many thanks for what was our best ever walking holiday.The walks were amazing stops for refreshments really well chosen at end of walks, accommodation and meals top class especially at Antonios..Looking forward to another Spanish Steps walking holiday in the future. Pat and Patricia (Ireland) October 2014
 We (the Bogtrotters) have all arrived home safely. Thank you so much for such a lovely time on The Silk Trail. Julian and I had a really super holiday and we would like to thank you. It was lovely for us that we did not have to think at all about the organising of the holiday. You were brilliant and had worked so hard to organise transport, food and of course those fabulous walks. It was great meeting other walkers as well, a lovely bunch. The Bogtrotters (Beds) October 2014
Just wanted to say thank you for another wonderful holiday. It was a fantastic week and the walks were truly spectacular. We had a great time and thought the group was brilliant. Have a good summer and hope to see you again next year. Linda & John, (Surrey) Spring 2012
Just a quick email to express our sincere thanks to you both for yet another fantastic Spanish Steps holiday. We very much enjoyed the company and camaraderie of the whole group, many of whom, like us, expressed a wish to return next year to repeat the Competa based village holiday which was our introduction to Spanish Steps. Of course, we selfishly hope that you do not decide to retire just yet and thus look forward to perhaps experiencing a trip to Fez, which you mentioned you were investigating. We appreciate all the hard work it no doubt takes to create such a marvellous experience for so many. Marie and Dave, (Kent) Spring 2012.
…. the walking was fantastic (as always), the scenery breathtaking and we were elevated to a new level of achievement. Ian & Pam, (Newcastle upon Tyne) Spring 2012.
You need to know that our time with you was very special and energizing. The hotels were great, the food was amazing, the hikes phenomenal, and the company of your family was the icing on the cake. An all around, great experience. Thank you over and over. Wilf (leader of a group of 21 from Canada) Autumn 2012.
