Great Hikes and Chefs of Northern Italy's Gourmet Trail
Vicky was amazing. Her kindness made the trip so wonderful; she was a joy to travel and hike with! The pace she set was perfect, and made the hikes such a joy. I especially appreciated how she made mine and my brother's birthdays so special. She also kindly extended a day of hiking for me and a few others one afternoon when the optional later hike was unavailable because those trails were closed due to landslides. Rather than simply retracing our steps from the morning (which had been my own suggestion) she took us on another route that gave us amazing panorama views of the valley below. It was my favorite hike of the trip!
