"Amazing adventure, but possibly more than we bargained for"

Quintessential Collioure To Cadaques

Mediterranean Coast

Departure date : 23/04/2019
The good news was that we had an amazing time. Sally customized the trip to our needs for dates and nights in the hotels. 3 of the 4 hotels were excellent, and the other one was servicable but not great. The meals were uniformly above our expectation,s except for one - not bad for 5 breakfasts and 5 dinners!
The bad news: the hike was more than we expected. We are all 65+, with various levels of hiking experience. Having never been to the area we did not really know what to expect and we found that the guidebook underestimated the amount of miles as well as the time it would take to hike.
We also found the guidebook was not totally clear when it came to the directions - some of it was excellent and brought us to some out-of-the-way paths that were wonderful. Other parts were obscure and hard to find.
If I were to make one suggestion it would be that in addition to having a "hard" and Easy" hiking optyion for each day, they have a third option for "over 65" hikers that want to experience the countryside but might not want to have quite as much "adventure".
