We've just finished our second Hike with Tas Ex and we had a fantastic time. The scenery and Hiking in the Walls of Jerusalem is really spectacular. However, Hollie and George enhanced our trip with their skills, care,thoughtfulness and their sense of humor. We were very well looked after with plenty of food and hot beverages. We had plenty of rest stops and photo opportunities and the pace of each days walk was very comfortable. We had some inclement weather during the hike and Hollie and George took particular care ensuring that we all got the very best out of each day.
