Testimonials

  • Review by Lock Martin from Australia

    "I booked four Utracks holidays end to end. The first two were self-guided through Cornwall. They were both brilliant and can thoroughly recommend. The sense of achievement in doing a self-guided trip as a solo traveler was high."

    "A fantastic trip that was unfortunately cut short by the April earthquake. Everything leading up to it was perfect, food, accommodation and service! Our guides were knowledgeable and happy to help us with anything! Following the earthquake Subal, our guide, made all the right decisions to keep us safe. Even though we didn't achieve our goals, it was an amazing experience."

  • Review by a traveler from Australia

    "We completed these 7 days from Linz to Vienna in September with two adults and two teenagers. We are not bike riders. We did a few 30 kilometers warm rides before we left home but that didn't prepare us for the up to 55 kilometers days riding into a 30 kilometers head wind along the Danube. We booked our tour through UTracks in Australia around USD 4,700 for the seven days which included two rooms accommodation for 6 nights with breakfasts and dinners and bike hire. All contact with UTracks via phone and email was excellent, we received our travel documents at our first nights hotel in Linz the Park Inn by Radisson. Our bikes were delivered to the hotel at 8 a.m. (a change in plans as we were supposed to pick them up). We dropped our bags at reception by 9 a.m. each day to be transported to our next accommodation. It is not an easy ride for those, like us, who don't ride at all when in Australia and did only a few 30 kilometers rides in preparation.All that said we as a family have shared many wonderful experiences that we wouldn't have done if we were in a car, on a boat or in a plane. I would recommend this tour to families with children over the age of 12 not 8 as recommended by Utracks. Utracks Australia were easy to deal with over the phone or via email, we would use them again but maybe not a cycling tour this time."

    "If the Camino is on your bucket list, contact UTracks for an experience of a lifetime. We did and enjoyed it greatly. The itinerary catered for experienced and less experienced walkers. The support provided throughout the walk was exceptional. And the food experience was even better! If I had to score, I would give a 9.9 out of 10!"

    "We hope you decide to run this tour again as we have recommended it to so many people. The day walks chosen were on sections with superb scenery. The accommodation and food were outstanding and Teresas leadership and knowledge made for a memorable holiday."

  • Review by R. Kreger from Australia

    "A very enjoyable trip! Our guides were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and fun. Im a trekker so the walking was a doddle; my wife in not a trekker but did 4 months of training and although she found the hardest day hard, she did the trip with no physical pain, so if youre not a trekker, follow Utrack's training recommendation. The selection of parts of the four different Caminos that we walked was excellent: forests, high alpine, beach or cliff face, farmland, villages, towns, cities, monasteries and cathedrals.Similarly, the activities we did were varied and interesting. Loved the ambience and experience of the Michelin Star or near Michelin Star experiences but tasting the regional food specialties and participating in their customs was even more enjoyable. Accommodation was fine throughout. The trip notes were exceptionally well done - best Ive ever had. As Camino walkers, the welcome you receive from the locals is overwhelming. We highly recommend this trip across Green Spain."
