The Cristiana Guesthaus room was basic, but comfortable. Breakfasts were very good and included fresh fruit - something I always appreciate. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. Our program guides, Peter and Len, were knowledgable and worked well together... a great combination! I learned interesting facts regarding the geology and topology of the area. I had been accustomed to only one dinner on my own with previous programs, so why two in this one? Also, name tags are nice for the first day or two, but the flimsy tags that RS supplies are so cheap they're hardly worth the effort - especially for hikers. Recommend you find a better tag or skip it entirely! The weather was perfect, the program attendees congenial, and the entire week very enjoyable. Just wish the last evening would have been spent at a different restaurant. The food was fine, but the dining area was so noisy we couldn't hear each other without shouting. The last evening should allow some time to visit over dinner. These small group programs are wonderful, and I hope RS will continue to offer them.

This was a fantastic hike, and all three guides were great. Kudos to Peter, Len and Liz. Although the hikes were mildly challenging, the beautiful wildflowers and vistas were all breathtaking.
