Do you recognize this?

I know. It can be quite scary traveling solo.
Especially when it is your very first time.
Perhaps you are in doubt whether a solo walking holiday is something for you?
Are you afraid that you will not feel comfortable in the group?
Or that you are only going to meet old and unhappy people?
That there is no time for yourself?

The best experience holidays

You’ll be on the road with me. I have over 15 years of experience in organizing the best experience holidays in Italy, around Lake Bolsena and Rome

Recently made the wine walking trip with a friend (and 2 other ladies) and when I started it I could not have imagined that this would be one of my best holidays !!!
Guided by Mariet, we went on beautiful and special walks and visited beautiful places.
Some parts in the walks were quite tough, but “the reward” consisted of a very special wine tasting, both special with regard to the wines but also with regard to the locations of the various tastings and the owners, and stories of the owners, so “the tough parts ”and the fatigue were soon forgotten.
Bolsena and surroundings are beautiful, no mass tourism and the people are very friendly and helpful.
Mariet is a very special hostess/guide/tour leader, a warm person. She does everything she can to make the guests feel at home so that it becomes a special experience for them. Everything is, or will be, arranged by her and small changes in the program in the meantime is no problem. We really felt pampered.
One of the ladies mentioned that “wine walking” would be a nice new verb. I totally agree, as far as I’m concerned one of the nicest verbs there is.
This trip was a very special experience and definitely a must for anyone who
loves wine and walking and wants to do something different on holiday.

A wonderful walking holiday. Under the guidance of Mariët, follow the red shoes, in 10 days from Orvieto to Rome on foot. The nature, the beautiful varied landscape, the delicious food, the beautiful small villages and towns and places where we spent the night have made this holiday an experience to remember! FANTASTIC! This way of traveling ensures that you get to see places that you normally would not and shows the real Italy. It is an addition to go out with someone who knows the language, culture and the area well. Mariët ensures that everything is well organized, such as the rest day in Calcata (never had such a beautiful view from a holiday accommodation before), and knows how to find the nicer paths that lie between Orvieto and Rome. Under the warm Italian sun it is much more pleasant to walk through the forest and among the hazelnut trees than along the asphalted roads. All in all, had a fantastic two weeks, thank you!

Hello Mariët, It was a wonderful holiday with beautiful excursions, walks and just relaxing at the lake. We had a great time. The most memorable thing of the recent days is the beautiful lilac light in the morning and in the evening. In addition to the beautiful surroundings and impressive towns, we found it very pleasant to do something ‘organized’ on a small scale. The walks were very rewarding. On the way home we decided that we definitely want to go back to this region and that the organization of yours was fine and pleased. Thanks!
