It was an awesome trip. After a week of running and taking trains around Rome, Florence, Venice, and Cinque Terre -- that week was a awesome break to just relax and enjoy the Amalfi Coast. We stayed at agriturismo and had farm-to-table meals every breakfast and every dinner.

This trip called for a lot of hiking -- not recommended for those who do not hike or exercise on a regular basis.

I had the most magical experience thank you. Especially so , spoilt by having the very best skipper Damir. Through Damir's local knowledge of the Island's, he was able to give us the best possible experience. If I was to go home tomorrow, (& my travel plans are, travelling for some months yet) I would be the happiest woman alive! I rate this adventure, the very best in my life time.Damir's caring thoughts of each & everyone of his passengers needs were to make this sailing trip very special to us all. Our safety & well being was paromount at all times, but always giving us the flexability also. I have already started spreading the word. Thank you so much G Adventures. Warmest regards, Vivienne Nye November 2015

I felt that the trip provided a broad coverage of western Turkey - urban & rural, and a real sense of the history of the peoples living there over time - their influence & contribution to the culture & architecture still existing today.

Solo Notes

We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Physical Requirements Our small group adventures bring together people of all ages. It is very important you are aware that, as a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility' is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their own luggage at a minimum. Travellers with a pre-existing medical condition are required to complete a short medical questionnaire, which must be signed by their physician. This is to ensure that travellers have the necessary fitness and mobility to comfortably complete their chosen trip. While our CEOs work hard to ensure that all our travellers are catered for equally, it is not their responsibility to help individuals who cannot complete the day's activities unaided. Please refer to the physical ratings in this Trip Details document for more information. The medical questionnaire can be found online at: www.gadventures.com/medical-form.
Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
