“It was trouble-free. All the arrangements worked well.”
Mr Stumpf, UK
“The coast is gorgeous and the path is easy to follow once we found it! The breathtaking landscape make other small issues less important.”
Ms Ardon, Canada
“I would like to add how much we enjoyed walking from Pembroke to Amroth last week. The luggage transfer worked brilliantly and we were delighted with the quality and variety of the accommodation.”
Mrs Boon, UK
“Another lovely stretch of Pembrokeshire coast. Nothing too strenuous, and once you escape the clutches of Milford Sound the views are consistently magnificent”
Mr Julyan, UK
“A most enjoyable holiday. Very well organised and ran like clockwork.”
Mrs Hodges, Wales
“Thank you for arranging the exceptional weather it was very kind! Brilliant! This was my third and final part of the Pembrokeshire coastal path I had booked with Contours and I was genuinely sad when I got to the end of it and realised, there was no more exploring to do. Yes, I would I think this is possibly my 11th holiday with Contours so I would certainly book another.”
Mr Madge, UK
“In general we find Contours excellent, and sing your praises at every opportunity.”
Mrs Kitchen, UK
