“A Great Way to See Iceland”

Written on: 07/11/2014 by PeterWembley (1 review written)

My wife and I recently completed a 14 day self drive, self guided tour of Iceland organised by the New Experience team. It was AMAZING. Every element from our first email contact was professional, informative with everything delivered on the holiday exactly as promised. Even a personal note from the Managing Director the week we were leaving as there was a volcano threat for the time we were going to be in Iceland! I cannot recommend this company highly enough and we are already planning our… Read Full Review

“Brilliantly arranged holiday in Switzerland”

Written on: 05/07/2014 by SHERBORNES (1 review written)

In summary everything went smoothly, there is almost nothing to report. The travel documents and timings went perfectly. The hotel (Belvedere in Scuol) was superb. The area and transport was superb for all grades of walking and site seeing. I could even give them credit for the weather!! The only slight criticism we would make is that the booklet of walks was not up to date. But we used them as a guide to the routes and we did well. Will almost certainly use them again. Several extra nice… Read Full Review

“Fantastic holiday, superb organisation, brilliant company.”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by margaretaliceanddickhenry (1 review written)

Just got back from a lovely trek around the Picos de Europa. Everything went very smoothly as the details in our instructions were clear and precise and the partner company S-cape were outstanding. Everywhere taxi and bus transport were punctual, pick ups were flexible and the family run hotels and food were great. The walking was well organised. When the weather was superb we were able to do the more challenging days but there were plenty of lower level/shorter walks for the not so good… Read Full Review

“Self-guided Amalfi coast trek - with mountains too”

Written on: 09/06/2014 by LandG (1 review written)

This was our first venture into an activity holiday that we had not planned from start to finish ourselves. From initial e-mail contact, New Experience kept us informed on progress. We were able to add an extra few nights at the end of the holiday without any problems. We did not want the usual of trips to Capri or Pompeii which are included by some companies; we wanted fairly strong walking including into the inland hills with no worries over routes, luggage or accommodation. This was… Read Full Review

“Excellent guided walking in the High Atlas Mountains”

Written on: 30/05/2014 by BNB3 (1 review written)

Very belatedly (a group of 6 friends early May 2014)I wanted to say how much I enjoyed my recent guided walking holiday in Morocco arranged through New Experience Holidays. The office was always helpful and I found the arrangements to be excellent, from our meeting and transfer on arrival at Marrakesh airport to the final transfer at the end; the hotels were all excellent (Clefs Du Sud Riad in the Medina, Village de Toubkal only reachable on foot in Imlil and Chez Momo with a fabulous garden and… Read Full Review

“Fabulous walking holiday in Dominica”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by Pongosey (2 reviews written)

Dominica,(not to be confused with the Dominican Republic)is a small and stunning volcanic island in the Caribbean and it was here we enjoyed our second walking holiday organised by New Experience. Once again, the accommodation was fabulous as was the walking. The organisation of the holdiay was excellent and information received comprehensive, as before. Our first holiday with New Experience was to Santo Antao, Cape Verde (review below). I would thoroughly recommend this holiday company… Read Full Review

“Walking in Spain, Las Marinas”

Written on: 24/02/2014 by rogerpayn (1 review written)

We have been on ten self guided holidays but this was our first one with New Experience. We have now booked two more holidays with New Experience and I think that says every thing about the company. We loved the holiday, everything was as we expected. To start with compared to other companies it was great value. The walking was moderate to easy, the hotels were small and very good, food was excellent. We were in an area where we have never been before and the whole area was uncommercialised… Read Full Review

“El Heirro 27/12/2013”

Written on: 14/01/2014 by mitie (1 review written)

What a way to end the new year and start another with walks in El Heirro. Fantastic views and walks with wonderful company and excellent guide. The hotel was spotless and the staff were wonderful could not do enough for you and on New Years Eve gala night the staff worked so hard to accommodate everyone's needs. All the travel arrangements went like clockwork especially as we had two flights, one taxi and a hired car. We were met at the hotel by the guide who talked us through the walks… Read Full Review

“Walking in Bad Gastein”

Written on: 27/07/2013 by patrick70 (1 review written)

Our group of 17 people from the Glens of Antrim Rambling Club spent two weeks at the Hotel Alpenblick in Bad Gastein. The hotel is very comfortable with a good range of spa facilities including a sauna, steam room and thermal bath. There is a beautifully kept garden with a small heated outdoor pool and the opportunity to try various therapies. The owners of the hotel, Elizabeth and her daughter Claudia are exceptionally hospitable and helpful and can offer advice on local transport and anything… Read Full Review

“Maestrazgo Trek”

Written on: 30/05/2013

Before we set out on our first day of our Maestrazgo trek, we wondered if route finding would be difficult as our trek wound its way from village to village in a remote sparsely populated part of Spain. We'd chosen the region for a spring/ early summer holiday as the hills/ mountains were between 1000 -2000 metres so unlikely to be troubled by melting snow. We found on the first day and subsequent days that the waymarks were excellent and route finding was not a problem. This gave us time to… Read Full Review

“Gozo relaxing paradise”

Written on: 29/05/2013 by RosieandFrank (1 review written)

From start to finish New Experience organised the holiday to perfection. Our special request of 3 days in Malta to sightsee was not an issue; they found us an ideal central location and arranged everything. Gozo was then the perfect antidote, relaxed, great hotel, stunning setting and wonderful walks. Our guides were knowledgeable and added so much to the experience. We opted for a personal guide which made it even more special. We also managed self guided walks which were easy and fun… Read Full Review

“Good value well organised”

Written on: 27/05/2013

I have just returned from a one week walking holiday, organized by New Experience Holidays, trekking part of the Lycian Way Turkey (West), stunning scenery,interesting at times rural accommodation but always clean and welcoming. Some of the less seasoned walkers in the party found the walking quite challenging due to the assents and descents and at times tricky paths. We undertook this walk in mid May, starting out in a pleasant temperature of 25 degrees but reaching a scorching 36 degrees by… Read Full Review

“Fantastic walking holiday in the High Atlas Mountains”

Written on: 27/05/2013 by Bristolwalker (1 review written)

We have just returned from a multi-centre holiday in the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco. We have been on many New Experience holidays and as usual the staff there provided a friendly and personal service. We were met at the airport and transferred to our first hotel (Dar Anika in Marrakesh - excellent hotel with fabulous breakfasts). Our first walking base was in the Ourika Valley where we met out first guide Hussain. He was excellent and told us much interesting information that we would not… Read Full Review

“Nepal Annapurna Foothills”

Written on: 20/04/2013 by georgego (1 review written)

Last year four of us trekked up to Annapurna Basecamp, a great experience, but this year we wanted to spend more time in the foothills area. Starting with a night in Kathmandu is great, but Pokhara is a fabulous place to spend a relaxing time surrounded by great views. Walk starts 1 hr drive from there. Trekking is hard but ok, especially in shorts and T shirt. Lots of tea stops. Lodges are basic but food choice is good and sleeping ok. Most now have western toilets which make it easier. Hot… Read Full Review

“Hotel to Hotel Trek, Santo Antao, Cape Verde. Fab Holiday”

Written on: 02/04/2013 by Pongosey (2 reviews written)

Originally, my partner was searching for the perfect location for a "blobby" holiday for us in a warm/hot climate but without the jetlag. He said "what about Cape Verde?" so I got into research mode and that's when I happened upon New Experience and discovered the amazing walking opportunities on the beautiful island of Santo Antao. We are walkers anyway and I thought this holiday sounded far more exciting, adventurous and the island more beautiful and unspoilt than lying on a beach for a… Read Full Review

“Superb experience”

Written on: 03/12/2012 by dar7imlil (1 review written)

We went on a walking holiday in the High Atlas mountains of Morocco in November 2012. From the moment we first contacted New Experience everything was a pleasure. All the arrangements were flawless. The hotels were interesting, in keeping with local decor and culture, and warm and welcoming. The walks were glorious ( we were fortunate with the weather), contouring up valleys, across cols, and between beautifully located Berber villages (and a Marabout shrine). All the trails had wonderful views… Read Full Review

“Brilliant Walking Holidays”

Written on: 27/11/2012

We have just returned from our eighth New Experience walking holiday and they have all been excellent. The New Experience team always answer enquiries promptly, and give a personal and friendly service. The accommodation is always carefully chosen to be both characterful and friendly, and the walking booklets are always accurate and make finding your way easy. The New Experience brochure states that they provide the sort of holidays they like to take themselves, and in our opinion they… Read Full Review

All hotels had friendly staff and high standards. The taxi drivers were helpful with baggage and all spoke some english and were friendly too. We are looking forward to another good… Read Full Review

“The Greek Peloponnese - Outer Mani Trek - May 2012”

Written on: 07/06/2012 by GeoffUrch (0 reviews written)

In common with many travellers, we have visited Greece many times over the years, always taking in a new destination. Some friends of ours who also have a love of Greece suggested that we try the Peloponnese. I browsed the internet and came across 'New Experience Holidays'. Their website was excellent and I began to explore the possibiltity of trekking in the 'Outer Mani' area with them. I found their staff to be very patient and helpful in response to my initial enquiries, whether by email… Read Full Review
