This hiking tour was absolutely fantastic in every way. My wife and I have been hiking for forty years in many different places in the world and of course in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest where we live. However we were blown away by the beauty and uniqueness of the Dolomites. Every day the trails chosen showed different landscapes including beautiful mountain formations, rolling green valleys and various alpine features.This made every hike great in its own way. The lodging in the hotels and rifugi exceeded our expectations with beautiful settings, comfortable sleeping arrangements and INCREDIBLE food. Dennis our guide was terrific . He was very knowledgeable of the trails and surroundings, friendly and engaging , and worked hard to ensure that every day's activities ran smoothly and worry free for us. We cannot say enough good things about him and this tour. Lastly, Brett the owner of Customwalks is a pleasure to work with and it was obvious from the start that he wanted this to be as good an experience for us his customers as possible. The other people on this tour were just as delighted with it as we were. We hope to do more tours with this truly excellent company.

This tour was perfect from start to finish. Our guide - Dennis.- was awesome and very knowledgeable about local culture, history, geography and local cuisines. He prepped us every evening for the next day’s activities and had us well prepared for all aspects of the hike. By the end of the hike Dennis was “one of the family”. The accommodations - from four star hotels to local refuggios - were all excellent and the food was superb at every stop. Most importantly, the scenery was spectacular the entire trip. Every day provided new and different vistas in every direction. We would definitely hike the Dolomites with Customwalks again.

Hiking through the stunning Meteora monasteries and remote villages of Zagori Greece is an amazing trip not to be missed. The accommodations are first class and the delicious food will fuel all of the scenic hikes that you will experience on this trip.

I had the pleasure of having Brett and Manu as my guides on a walking tour inTuscany in October 2017. The daily treks were well planned, beautifully orchestrated and gave options for different levels of energy and fitness. We toured vineyards and tasted wines. We also had fabulous meals in gorgeous outdoor settings looking over the hills. The accommodations were diverse and delightful. I highly recommend this trip.

I went to the Dolomites in 2019 with Brett and Manu. The Dolomites were a revelation, and I am eager to return as a result of this trip, which I think back to frequently. I booked through REI, but it was Customwalks that handled absolutely everything – the itinerary, the rifugios in the mountains and the charming hotels in San Candido and Cortina, the meals, getting us to and from the mountains – really everything but the weather, and they are expert about that too. Brett and Manu are unfailingly professional and a lot of fun besides. It was a demanding itinerary, that they managed perfectly. It was a congenial group, which was great since I went on my own. I really can’t say enough good things about Customwalks and I am eager to hike with them again.
