“Soca Valley Trek Slovenia ”

Written on: 16/07/2019 by Robake (1 review written)

First time with this company will definitely use them again. Our accommodation was great luggage transfers went smoothly and the food was plentiful and extremely tasty both dinner and breakfast. Unfortunately the first couple of days it was raining and there was fog in the mountains so you couldn't see the views but they would have been spectacular. Slovenia had a late cold snap we were trekking across snow and a lot of the streams were swollen because of the melting snow. It was definitely an… Read Full Review

“Just got back from walking the 2nd stage of the Camino ”

Written on: 26/05/2019 by Gingertea (1 review written)

My sister and I have just returned from walking the 2nd stage of the Camino. This is the second time I have used New Experience and will definitely be using them again to organise our next stage. Just pick up the phone give them a few details and they will do the rest, it couldn’t be easier. Their prices are fair, we had good flight times which linked easily to our further travels making our journey stress free. We had a good choice of accommodation, you wouldn’t expect 5 star on the… Read Full Review

“Discovery of Gran Canaria”

Written on: 22/02/2019 by Richtrek (1 review written)

We loved our walking holiday in Gran Canaria, organised by New Experience. The organisation was first-class. After two phone-calls to the office, everything was booked including the flights. The walking route was a constant pleasure for us and the instructions and the maps provided meant we found our way with no trouble. The hotels were all good and interesting and the food was of a high standard. I am gluten-free and all the hotels could cater for me. Some of the walking was tough, but we… Read Full Review

“Minh Trek Portugal”

Written on: 05/01/2019 by Squireofdanby (1 review written)

This was the eighth trekking holiday with New X. We used to go with Headwaters but we found that New X offered nearly identical holidays at much reduced cost. We loved the walking in Soajo in the mountains and then dropping down the valley by the river was entirely different walking again very enjoyable. Walking along the coast was a little tame for us but the route was part of the Portuguese Camino and there were plenty of pilgrims doing the walk. We enjoyed all the hotels we stayed in and… Read Full Review

“Good local contacts”

Written on: 07/12/2018 by PRB57 (1 review written)

Very good communication from all the team in the UK. On all of our trips their in country contacts have been faultless. A recent trek to Everest base camp was perfect. The trip was customised to our requirements and remained flexible once we were in Nepal. Will definitely go with New Experience again… Read Full Review

“Good organisation makes for an enjoyable and relaxing...”

Written on: 07/12/2018 by ronhbailey (1 review written)

We have had two holidays with New Experience, both in Greece and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Everything is extremely well organised and leaves us with nothing to do but enjoy the walking. The walks are well chosen with plenty of interest en route and the handbooks describing the routes are very comprehensive. We are both in our Sixties and appreciate not having to carry our own luggage while having the freedom to follow, alter or ignore the suggested routes at our whim!… Read Full Review

“Excellent holidays.”

Written on: 03/12/2018 by walkingliz (1 review written)

I have been on three New Experience walking holidays with my husband to different areas of Switzerland. We have enjoyed all these holidays very much and intend to book with New Experience again. The New Experience staff are very helpful and very knowledgeable. There is always a member of their staff who has visited the area that we are interested in visiting and to whom we can talk before we book. This is very useful. The book of walks for the area that we are visiting which is provided once we… Read Full Review

“Well organised fantastic holiday”

Written on: 27/11/2018

We found New Experience Holidays very easy to deal with, they were very helpful, always replied to any queries we had promptly and all our paperwork arrived within good time. We thought the price was very reasonable and booked our own flights which kept costs down. During our holiday, all our pick ups were on time, our luggage transferred everyday without a problem and was always waiting for us when we arrived at our accommodation. The accommodation was good, some slightly better than others… Read Full Review

“Well organised trip which took full advantage of scenery”

Written on: 26/11/2018 by jcHutchison429 (1 review written)

New Experience were very easy to deal with and were able to customize a walking holiday to our needs. The route organized for us was very scenic and the walking notes provided informative. All accommodation booked on the route was comfortable and the food was great. We did very well. The baggage collection went off without a hitch. Partway through the trip my partner sustained an injury which prevented him from completing the walk - but New Experience were able to accommodate and take him… Read Full Review

“Camino ”

Written on: 26/11/2018

I have wanted to walk the Camino for years and last year I really felt the urge to start. The only problem was I didn’t know where to start or anything about how you walk the Camino. I tried a few online companies but it was vague and I couldn’t really find what I wanted then I discovered New experience holidays. I made a phone call and in no time the person I dealt with was able to offer me a start and finish point, he covered flights, transport, baggage delivery and accommodation in fact… Read Full Review

“Great walks and a brilliant holiday (Las Marinas Trek,...”

Written on: 26/11/2018

The self-guided walks were excellent as was the accommodation on each night. We were provided by New Experience with an app that charted each day's route and indicated where we were whenever we needed to check. On one occasion we went off route as we hadn't checked the app but because of it were able to find the route by walking on rather than retracing our steps. The walking notes were given were good but if in doubt, the app would always show the way. The host who met us at the airport and… Read Full Review

“Into the fjords- 14 day center based hiking in Norway”

Written on: 06/10/2018 by Bavarianhillbilly (1 review written)

Excellent trip. We have used several( 6) different adventure hiking companies and yours is by far the best. Walking papers and maps were accurate, accomadations were excellent and all transfers were accurate. The cost of your trip for a 14 days was actually less than another companies 7 day trip. With that in mind the accomadations were top notch. Salmon for breakfast and dinner every night. Excellent meals and rooms. I used the indoor swimming pool in Voss five different times. One note. For… Read Full Review

“Poor accommodation and way finding ”

Written on: 11/08/2018 by Amirs312 (1 review written)

We recently visited the Croatian islands on a walking holiday with New Experience. We were unable to get a full itinerary before leaving despite having paid for the holiday in full. It was clear that the accommodation was the cheapest available just prior to travel and on one evening after a long walk we found ourselves at the location given for the day to find a derelict supermarket. We had to call our host who duly arrived and showed us to a room in the building which was clean but hardly… Read Full Review

“Cortina Guided Walking”

Written on: 10/07/2018 by mecoulson (1 review written)

Franceschi Park hotel - staff/service were superb, room a bit small but comfortable. Meals were ok. Walking leader was excellent. Lovely Alpine area with good bus service. Enjoyable walking - 3 Chimneys circular is a must for serious walkers but not too strenuous and easy to find way. WW1 fortifications worth a look. I've had 12 walking holidays with New Experience and all but one have been very good/excellent. I'll be travelling with them again. … Read Full Review

“Fantastic walking holiday in rural Bulgaria”

Written on: 25/06/2018 by Newportwalker (1 review written)

We travelled, in May, to the Rhodopi Mountains in Bulgaria, on a self guided walking holiday by New Experiences and managed in Bulgaria by thei local agent Traventuria. The pick up from the airport was on time, the vehicle new and in good condition. It is quite a long drive to the Rhodope Mountains, through some spectacular scenery. Some of the roads are narrow with steep drops but the driving was excellent; you really could relax and enjoy the view. The first hotel in Devin was fine, nothing… Read Full Review

“Poor attention to detail”

Written on: 27/05/2018

We have done several trips with New Experience Holidays which have been very enjoyable but each one has had more than one issue which indicates there is a lack of attention to detail by the company. I think a previous reviewer is quite right to say that New Experience staff probably don't walk the routes very often. We've found that the route descriptions can be out of date which is disconcerting when you're in an unfamiliar place. On a winter walking holiday in Switzerland there were no "yak… Read Full Review

“A CURATE'S EGG IN MAJORCA”

Written on: 24/10/2017 by grumpydoug (1 review written)

My wife and I spent a week walking in Majorca on a New Experience holiday, staying at the Hotel Aimia in Port de Soller. The hotel, the more expensive of the two offered, was superb in every respect and we recommend it whole-heartedly. The rest of the holiday was, like the Curate's egg, good in parts. Travel and accommodation arrangements were made efficiently albeit with one glitch. Our return pre-arranged taxi from hotel to airport failed to arrive and the 'phone numbers listed on the Newex… Read Full Review

“Excellent walking, great customer service”

Written on: 26/07/2017 by Bunnybarney (1 review written)

We've walked all over the world, the Andorra trekking was up there with the best, as ever New Experience (our 3rd time)excellent in every way, particularly as we wanted to do a longer trek than standard. Extra days in Encamp or Soldeu and explore the Incles valley. Santa Barbara Hotel in Ordino and Hotel Montane really good. Hotel Grau Roig - breakfast and supper to be believed! Easy to plan your own walks from the excellent 1:25,000 map and vary according to mountian weather… Read Full Review
