Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Tulip Tour

On this short bike and barge holiday you will experience the highlights of springtime in Holland. Leaving Amsterdam we travel by barge to Spaarndam and the village of Hans Brinker where we disembark to take a short cycle trip to Haarlem. The Flower Park Keukenhof is our next focus where we are welcomed by thousands of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths of various colours, shapes and scents. Cycling through the blooming bulb fields we reach Leiden, birthplace of the world famous painter Rembrandt. As we continue on our bikes we will also visit a traditional Dutch windmill as well as a local cheese farm where we take a tour to learn the process of cheese making and taste the final goods. On our last day we visit the world's biggest Flower Auction in Aalsmeer before boarding our barge back to Amsterdam.
