We had THE most wonderful week with you both,the variety of hikes, the perfect weather and the excellent food…good job we were hiking!….and most importantly your companionship. We had such interesting conversations and it was an educational experience to boot!

” I was really pleased with the house i stayed in and loved living the village way of life for the week. The weather was beautiful too. I loved the picnics and the great locations we ate at during our walks. I really appreciated the effort and care Victoria put into making our lunch. I loved the fresh fruit picked from the garden and the home made chutneys that went with the salad.
What did i enjoy most about my holiday?…….the personal touches, the positive attitudes and the great care, attention and effort that Paul and Victoria put in to ensure we all had a great holiday. Thank you! “

” Dear Vicki and Paul,
I have just enjoyed the most wonderful week with you both. I had not a care in the world. You have, with confidence, introduced me to Spain and in particular the beauty of Andalucia. Once i arrived i needed to make no preparations for the week as you had done it all for us. All i had to do was relax.”
Ursula March/April 2015.
” Our house was charming and had everything we needed in it. The roof terrace was appreciated and we loved walking through the beautiful surroundings and narrow streets.
The meals were excellent and it was nice to eat in a different restaurant every evening.
Victoria and Paul took care of each and every one of us (15) which is very unusual for a hosts. You are both so welcoming and it was a delight to spend time with you. I had a wonderful time with the group and it was one of my better holidays ( if not THE best!) ever. I’ll be back!!
Thank you both for an extraordinary holiday. “

Walk Andalucia’s Sustainable Tourism Policy.
We recognise that the environment, the community and the culture within which we operate and our relationship with local organisations, businesses and individuals is vital to the success of our business. We therefore commit in the long term to:
Minimising the direct environmental impact of our operations and being proactively involved in activities that work to protect the natural environment.
Working to understand and respect the needs of local people and our suppliers.
In support of the above we:
- Support our local economy by bringing business to an area of high unemployment, particularly during the winter months.
- Support community tourism initiatives in our village to bolster people’s pride in their culture
- Walk only in small groups (usually 10-15) to minimise the impact on the environment
- Use locally owned traditional accommodation
- Raise the awareness of this policy amongst our customers and suppliers
- Use wherever possible organic fruit and vegetables or locally grown produce in season
- Inform our customers of the history and culture of our area
- Always behave in an environmentally responsible manner, for example take litter home with us, staying on well marked paths, not leaving fruit peel and discouraging the picking of wild flowers.
- Our walking holidays in Spain are always focused on sustainability and respecting the wildlife and environment.
” The thought and organisation that had been put into each days itinerary was outstanding and it is very obvious this is a happy, family business due to the attention to detail and level of care.
Thanks to you all – you make a great team!”
Steven & Sally. October 2016.
‘ I loved the charm and warmth of our accomodation. The walks were varied and really interesting. I enjoyed Torrox, the guides, Paul and Vicki, the food, the beer and the company. I have no problem recommending the whole experience.
Thanks for making it a really enjoyable holiday!

” The programme of walks was fantastic! My holiday far exceeded any expectations i had. I loved the meals in the evening and especially enjoyed Victoria’s salads at lunch time.
We had beautiful walks with 2 excellent guides….Victoria and Paul. They are both intelligent, strong and kind and we all felt totally safe and well looked after all week.

” Simply the best holiday!!”
Pete & Annie Feb 2015.
” Paul and Victoria’s hospitality was superb. Their knowledge of the local Spanish history was so interesting and informative. Consideration was shown for every member of the group. I particularly liked how they helped the local businesses and restaurants thus helping the Torrox economy.
It was obvious from their own love of walking that they are so happy to share this with their guests.
I would come on a Walk Andalucia holiday again and will definitely be recommending to friends.”
