A beautiful and well planned trail. Our two guides were exceptional. So interesting and knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna along the trail. Also so helpful to any older slower walkers - like me - in the group. The catering was superb and delicious all the way, with a lovely mix of creative 5star picnics and excellent wine farm meals. The format was exceptionally well thought out and outstandingly executed. Alison and Andre's are to be congratulated for their pioneering work bringing this gem to our doorstep. Thanks to all involved.
