FANTASTIC ADVENTURE IN FRANCE !
High Point Holidays didn't disappoint with the travel suggestions and itineraries! The tours were fun and exactly what we were looking for in our trip in Europe. We met wonderful people on our journey from Paris to Nice! Our hotels and tour guides were amazing. We can't wait for our next big adventure!Todd J. - Valley of Gastronomy France Trip
BEAUTIFUL WALKING HOLIDAYS !
We have fallen in love with the Jura region. The prettiest countryside I’ve ever seen in France. Nathalie and Ludwig were incredible hosts. She is one hell of a cook. A great place.Garth B. - Jura Wine Trail
INCREDIBLE TRIP TO WALES !
Our trip was positively flawless, and the service while we were "en route" on our trip was responsive and helpful. The locations and activities that High Point Holidays recommended and help to orchestrate were spot on, and enabled us to feel far more like "travelers" than tourists. We enjoyed every aspect of our Wales vacation!Laura W. - The Luxury of Adventure: The finest landscapes of England and Wales
Fantastic organisation. You have thought about everything. We'll be back!
(We enjoyed) everything! The character and friendliness of the accommodation enhanced the enjoyable walks and scenery experienced. Would definitely travel with you again! The variety of landscapes and terrain, open hills, vineyards, historic villages, forests - all make for great walking. All very achievable.
I found the walk thoroughly enjoyable, even inspiring. The variety of lodging was a particular pleasure as well as the individual places themselves. And I could go on about the landscape etc interminably.
Very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful countryside: wild flowers, birds. Very 'French.' Made to feel welcome. Thanks - we had a brilliant time.
Thanks for a great trip. The lack of stress around the logistics (route planning/luggage etc) meant we were able to focus on hiking.
This was a superb trip in every way imaginable. You have my gratitude and congratulations on a job well done.
Amazing walking in beautiful, remote countryside..staying in very comfortable accommodation. The walking notes were very comprehensive and easy to follow.
Sarah and the team at High Point Holidays planned a wonderful outdoor/hiking trip to Lyon and the Savoy region. We hiked some of the alps, road bikes and saw a lot, encountering places that we wouldn't have possible discovered without them. I would highly recommend their services in planning future trips to the region. Sarah was very responsive and helpful in responding to requests to make changes to our itinerary, and checked in consistently before and during the trip as well. We felt very supported.
We have both enjoyed a terrific week! Many thanks for organising and booking such a tremendous walking holiday. We had a really delightful time. All of our hosts were so friendly and welcoming. We very much enjoyed all of our days of walking, and the variations in landscapes and changing flora in the forests. I really loved walking along the ridges with views of the valleys and peaks in dappled light. The green and yellow fauna was also really stunning. The notes were excellent and made everything very, very easy... Many thanks for such detailed instructions. Many thanks again for all of your efforts. We very much appreciate the knowledge, organisation and care that you have put into providing a holiday package such as this.
Thanks again for a great holiday - your walking notes are far and away the best we have ever had on our many such trips.
Paul & Ruth W.
The Provence countryside was beautiful, the hotels good, distances manageable. Lovely hilltop villages. The stay in Luberon was exceptionally good. Very helpful, personal communication with William. Extremely supportive & helpful arranging taxi transport in the heat.
All (guest houses) were accommodating and friendly. The combination of scenery, accommodation and food made it great.
Annette & John J.
A thoroughly enjoyable tour of the Luberon valley, accommodation that never failed to delight, with opportunities to meet very friendly & helpful local people. Will remain long in our memory, together with our other 2 successful High Point Holidays in France.
Carol & Mike D.
In many ways it has exceeded expectations on returning to the area after 11 years. The notes were the best of any offered by many companies used over decades.
The whole experience was great. Everything was well organised, different accommodation, good food and great walks.
It was perfect, just what we wanted; beautiful scenery, amazing hosts, perfect french cuisine and solid walking.
Your organisation was faultless and your choice of guest houses enabled us to experience some of the local French way of life here. We have been enormously impressed by the quality of the whole experience.
Overwhelmed by the level of hospitality received. We have walked with other companies in France but this was by far the best. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
The "Beaujolais Wine Trail" independent walking tour gave us four days of walking through beautiful countryside and five nights of splendid eating and wine-tasting with friendly and charming hosts. All of our hosts were very gracious in sharing with us not only their wine but also their experiences as grape growers and winemakers. High Point Holidays designed this very interesting tour and made the day-to-day arrangements, all of which worked without a hitch. We have now done two independent walking tours arranged by High Point and recommend the company to anyone interested in this kind of holiday.
Everything was well planned and surpassed expectations. The scenery and hospitality from really nice people and superb evening meals.
John & Sandra A.
Great combination of the walking, the views and the accommodation & food along with the hosts.
Jennifer R. & Andrea K.
It was really wonderful - food everywhere was excellent, as were the guest houses and their owners. Thank you so much.
We had a superb holiday. We loved the countryside, the walks and the hotels. Overall a fantastic experience.

Fabulous scenery. Enjoyed the lovely walks and being able to absorb the culture.
Every guest house and every host was so special each in it's own/their own way (and believe me we've had bad experiences in the past so I do know okay from bad and special from simply good!) The chambre d'hotes/table d'hote experience was new to us and we loved it - so much fun to have people from different countries all stumbling around in each other's language and getting to know each other. We love hiking in France and this has been our most enjoyable trip. Your company really does an excellent job.
We have had a great holiday. Great accommodation with lots of character. Variety of walks. A better sense of real French life than offered by a hotel.
Maureen & Robert T.
Cliffs services were great. Luggage transfers were smooth. The promotional materials were accurate and appealing. Loved the variety in places to stay and eat. Enjoy having some meals booked and others free. The area around Domme is so beautiful and walking into La Roque was special.
(We enjoyed) the rhythm of each day - the combination of wild, beautiful walks and comfortable evenings.
Isabel R. & Luke O.
Just some quick feed-back on what was an excellent holiday. All the arrangements worked very well, the routes were clear and well re-searched and to top it all we had excellent weather!
Truly enjoyed our experience with High Point Holidays. I was delighted to experience the different locales and different types of hotels/inns/cabins. The various guides and transfer drivers were, as a whole, delightful and informative.
Our trip to the UK was seamless from beginning to end! The drivers were on time and transportation to/from airports, trains and hotels was super easy. The hotels were all amazing.
This was my first experience with a travel service and I was very pleased. Extremely accessible and responsive. All arrangements were ready for us as promised. The accommodations were both top notch and good value for money. Suggestions for our activities were in line with what they learned about us prior to starting to plan.
Cecilia & John L.
Jane did an excellent job of communicating with us. In just a short period of time we were able to develop an outline of our itinerary that we constantly revised and improved upon. In the end, we have just returned from England and what was absolutely one of the best trips our family has ever had. With so many moving parts, so many transportation and ticketing requirements, having Jane and the team organize everything made it a seamless and wonderful experience. The locations for our lodging could not have been better suited for what we wanted and had asked to have.Thank you to Jane and the entire High Point Holidays team. We will certainly be in touch for our next overseas adventure. I recommend Jane and High Point Holidays to anyone looking to travel to Europe, but not having a solid idea of what they want to do.
How to arrange a seemingly impossible vacation with grandchildren?? Contact High Point Holidays to be sure. We wanted to travel to The United Kingdom with a 12 and 15 year old, but were unsure how to make these arrangements. Stephen made the trip happen seamlessly. From pickup at the airport into our hotel in London, to travel from Bath to Oxford and return to Heathrow we had knowledgeable and most importantly, reliable guides. Stephen worked with us for several months to fine tune the overall trip to our particular interests, and kept in contact during our stay. Thanks so much.
Sally & William F.
We wanted to see as much of the UK as possible, in our time of roughly 11 days in the country and our budget. Stephen, primarily, and the High Point team did a great job planning. Thanks to you all.
Melissa & Kenneth B.
High Point Holidays's flexibility and attentiveness were amazing.
First, before the trip we truly partnered with Fanny to design a vacation everyone was very happy with. I did take a few iterations but Fanny was understanding and had many wonderful ideas. Before we left everything needed was booked and provided. This significantly decreased the stress of vacation planning especially when you are dealing with a family vacation with children. The two bicycle tours we did were a lot of fun. David in Nantes was patient, friendly and knowledgeable. CiCi in Paris kept the kids entertained, was very knowledgeable, and I felt safe with her leading our group in some very busy parts of the city.
Stephen, our travel agent was fantastic. I am recommending him to some friends traveling there next year. All the guides were so knowledgeable and made it fun. Can't say enough about them. Overall...very very satisfied. Thank you for making our mother/daughter trip a huge success.
We recently completed our SW England road trip and it was fantastic! Stephen, who prepared our itinerary was able to take a lot of the planning for us, out of the equation. There were great activities suggested throughout the trip. This was personalized for us; A small family of three with a 9-year-old daughter. We are grateful to Stephen for being available throughout the planning process and things couldn't have been easier. This is a great way to generate ideas about an area you want to visit by getting local insight from people who know the area.
Janani & Rasweg G.
If you are of a mind to travel, High Point Holidays is the only way to go. Jane, and Flore, took my ideas and wants and needs, plugged in my sizable budget and aligned them together for a breathtakingly beautiful and fantasmagorical experience. Point being - I was listened to and made plans with a True Professional Travel Planner. If I get to travel again, no matter the destination, I will always and only plan with High Point Holidays.
We had an amazing journey perfectly planned through the cities of Oxford, Bath, and the Cotswolds and ended in the big City of London. Marion did a wonderful job picking accommodations for my family of 4. She picked a variety of activities of relaxation and action days too. It was wonderful to see so many areas of the UK! We really appreciate all her hard work. The road book was awesome at suggestions. We would definitely look to use High Point Holidays again for our next trip. Marion was also 2 steps ahead and made sure we knew what to expect and shared lots of great details. Summer 2023 to remember!
Lesly & Jason B.
Where to begin? It all started with the amazing team of High Point Holidays. They heard our desires and were very capable in making our travel as fluid as it was! With some brief back and forth, the itinerary was set. I would be remiss if I did not inject the great attention to detail, the High Point Holidays Team provided and the several last minute changes that we asked for while on travel. If you are considering High Point holidays as a source for your travels, well I am limited to only 5 stars and they are worthy of many, many more. Thank you, the team for making our trip so memorable!
Beverly & Tim G.
High Point Holidays listened to us and crafted a perfect trip.
Marc & Jaclyn S.
Using Jane (and Stephen and Flore when Jane was not available) for planning our trip and during our trip was amazing. Her suggestions during the planning stage were so helpful to us and helped us avoid being overwhelmed. Jane’s guidance and the team’s support while we were on our trip was also awesome ~ if a minor issue arose or we needed confirmation of something the responses were always quick, relevant and helpful. There is no question in our minds that using Jane and the team enhanced our enjoyment of our Europe trip!
When I started to plan a trip for me and my fiancé to Europe, the thought was so daunting, however, Stephen and William at High Point Holidays made the whole experience so easy and stress free!! Stephen worked with me to tailor make the trip to suit me and my fiancé's interests, and we had an absolute blast on all of the tours and events that he planned for us. He made sure we got to see all of the highlights and major attractions in each city and we couldn’t have been more happy with our experience. Stephen and two of his associates at High Point Holidays were also available the entire time I was in Europe to answer any questions and help me with any issues I had. I would definitely recommend High Point Holidays to anyone planning a big trip for the first time as it truly was a great experience.
Working with Stephen & Marianna was great. They were responsive, listened & worked with me on activities, pricing & recommendations. They followed through on everything I asked of them. Our trip was fantastic and everything went perfectly. I seriously could not have asked for more. Thank you to all - you helped us make some special family memories!
Our trip was amazing. We did have a jammed packed itinerary, but it was great! So much to see/do/learn and boy did we! Traveling solo adult with (2) almost teens and we were all happily engaged. A nice taste of both England and Scotland.
We turned to High Point Holidays to plan our family's trip to the UK, and had a wonderful time! Overall, our trip was so lovely and memorable. Our specialist, Sarah, worked hard on the itinerary to find a balance between kid-oriented fun and educational/cultural items, as well as finding accommodations that would work for a family of four. The children especially loved the Harry Potter studios tour and the armoury exhibit at The Tower of London. We parents loved the ease of our days with private tour guides in both York and for four days in Scotland with Keith of Scotland's Highland Tours.
We had an amazing time in England and Scotland!! Thank You Stephen and your team for working with us with adding people to our trip last minute. We appreciate all your hard work, and we were able to have a memorable experience we will remember forever! The locations and hotels you picked were so fun and we feel we would have missed out on seeing so much of it weren’t for your recommendations. We have already recommended High Point Holidays to friends and family based on our experience and we will continue to use you for future travels. Thanks Again.
Zane & Jamey N.
We reached out to High Point Holidays to help plan a 10 day trip for me, my husband, our daughter, and my in-laws to London and Edinburgh. We wanted to base our trip off of a group tour itinerary that we found, with some changes and additions to the attractions each day to ensure everyone got to do and see the things most important to them. Marion worked with me for almost a month, adjusting things to help fit our budget and recommending things to help us get everything into the trip. She was VERY patient and always kind, which I appreciated, because I couldn't make final decisions without consulting the others. I never felt pressured in any way (also much appreciated). She truly felt like a trusted friend who was helping me plan a dream trip.
Sarah was a fantastic planner as well as a support system for the trip. I have a "late" family. We are always running a bit behind as we are "stop and smell the roses" kinds of people. Sarah helped us make our appointments and keep all the vendors informed. That plus Jane helping us get new tickets for the train at the very last minute, were invaluable. The trip was epic. We will DEFINITELY be using High Point Holidays again.
Everything went so smoothly! Fanny quickly got things right. High Point Holidays's choice of a biking company was spot-on. We highly recommend High Point Holidays & Fanny.
We were very happy overall with the trip and all the help Sarah gave us with our planning. She took the information we had given her on things we'd like to see and do and she outlined for us a perfect trip! We picked up a rental car just outside of Paris and with navigation on our phone, had very little trouble driving all through France. We really liked the flexibility driving gave us as we made several side trips to cities and things we wanted to see along the way and we could stay as long as we like, or as little, when we were at our destination. We were in the regions of Normandy, the Loire Valley and the Dordogne region around Sarlat. All the tickets we needed for various sites were included with good information to go with them. Sarah had also included restaurant suggestions and other various helpful hints to make it easy for us to travel on our own in a foreign country.
My trip was absolutely incredible. I just showed up, and everything was planned, including my train transportation.
We really couldn’t have asked for anything more with the exceptional and perfect trip High Point Holidays put together for us! Each and every tour was amazing and ALL of our guides were the absolute perfect hosts, historians, photographers and all felt like Friends in the end! We really had the most memorable trip and the detail of our itinerary was incredible!!! Thank you High Point Holidays for making our mother/daughter 16th Birthday celebration the dream of a lifetime!
Thanks so much. We had a great time during our 11 days in France. Fun memories!
Wonderful planning and communication.
Overall we enjoyed our trip to Southern France. We are very laid back and busy people so using this service allowed us time to just enjoy.
The team at High Point Holidays really took the time to plan a great trip for me and three of my girlfriends to France. We met with them to plan the details and they put together a custom itinerary based on what they knew we would enjoy! They made it so easy to enjoy our time! I can’t wait for my next adventure with High Point Holidays!
Everything was well organized and well communicated
Each day was different. Lovely accommodation with interesting places to visit. I liked the freedom of cycling into a town and finding a cafe. Lovely food and wine. Many thanks for your friendly but unobtrusive help and attention to detail.
Jenny and Chris P.
We enjoyed the time to relax together, enjoying excellent food and wine, easy and interesting walks with some fabulous views.....another excellent antidote to the hassle of modern life!
Angela & Neil B.
We had the most amazing trip. Everything was expertly planned by Stephen Molloy. We started planning this trip of a lifetime almost a year before.He also planned the perfect day in Chamonix for us at the start and the perfect day in Annecy at the end. All of our accommodations were great. We highly recommend using High Point Holidays and we are already planning our vacation for next year and will definitely use High Point Holidays and Stephen Molloy to make it happen.
Many thanks William for carefully constructing a wonderful time in the French Alps for us. You have been caring, compassionate, creative and competent. For a group such as ours I think that the model we experienced was spot on. Day trips were great with accommodation, each being just the right level of comfort. The personalised service you offered has been extraordinary and rare and very much appreciated by all of us.
We enjoyed the medieval villages/hamlets, the local cuisine and wonderful hosts.
John & Annette J.
We certainly all had a brilliant time thanks to the magnificent efforts you made for us. Cordes is the perfect venue and the hotel couldn’t have been any better. The experiences you set up over and above the pleasure of the walks were beyond all expectations and I should like to reiterate my sincere thanks to you for everything.
We had a wonderful time and our guides were wonderful and knowledgeable. The trip was great and the accommodations and people were wonderful. Thanks for all your support and hard work.
What an amazing experience. My wife and I were seeking a trip off the beaten path where we could direct our destinations. We didn’t want to get on and off tour bus or be placed on a schedule. In stepped Claire and Stephen who did a fantastic job. We are adventurous, and Claire was right there, helping fertilize our desire to discover. We will take another trip and will do it with High Point Holidays. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience.
Marion and William did an excellent job creating a fully custom Scottish vacation of my husband and myself. Each step of the process they were fantastic. They offered excellent recommendations and their responses were always prompt and professional. It took me a while to respond sometimes and finalize our plans due to my heavy workload, but they were always so kind and patient with me. When it came time for the trip, everything went very smoothly. We are so pleased with High Point Holidays and we will definitely be using their services for our next vacation. I highly recommend Marion, William and the High Point Holidays team for creating a completely custom, unforgettable an amazing vacation. Thank you so much!
Rachel & Oren R.
Jane was terrific in planning our UK adventure. Everything she planned ran so smoothly and we really appreciated that. She selected great hotels and we enjoyed the day tours to various places. Working with Jane was so easy. She was very responsive to my questions and suggestions and so patient when I debated taking the trip to begin with. Thank you for finding the great e-bike trip through the Highlands. We adored Kevin, and it was a highlight of the trip. Jane also worked with us when we wanted to make some changes at the end. I really appreciated how quickly and positively she responded to our proposed changes. Wish I could plan another trip with her!
Our trip was positively flawless, and the service while we were "en route" on our trip was responsive and helpful. The locations and activities that Jane recommended and help to orchestrate were spot on, and enabled us to feel far more like "travelers" than tourists. We enjoyed every aspect of our Wales vacation!
Laura & Scott F.
We had an awesome and seamless experience. We enjoyed especially the kayaking! I am so happy to have had Sarah's help! I could not have done this alone.
