Comments on our books

 
Hi,
We purchased the Discover Vamos walks, and it was the best 7.5 Euros, we spent on our two week holiday. We did five out of the seven walks which we enjoyed very much.
Thanks again. Don Hatherley.
Hallo,

Ik wil even laten weten dat ik jullie boekjes goed ontvangen heb. Ze zien er erg gezellig en informatief uit. De wandelingen lijken mij ook goed te herkennen ter plekke. Leuk ook om wat meer van de streek te leren kennen.
Ik verwacht dat we hier op onze vakantie veel plezier van gaan hebben.
Met vriendelijke groet van Yolanda Krijgsman
Beste Berend,

Wij hebben bij jou de serie boekjes Vamos etc besteld voor onze vakantie.
Maandag zijn wij teruggekomen uit Kreta waar wij verbleven in Xirosterni.
Behalve een heerlijke zonnige etc etc Kreta vakantie, hebben wij ook heel erg veel plezier gehad van jouw boekjes met wandelingen.
In eerdere vakanties waren wij vooral te vinden in de Kretakloven, die eerlijk gezegd ook een beetje saai worden, zeker in vergelijking met jouw wandelingen. De beschrijving en tekeningen waren echt perfect, we konden alles vinden zonder foutlopen, de routes waren afwisselend qua landschap en paden en op deze manier konden we meer genieten van het landleven (zo heb ik voor het eerst een echte vijgenboom met vijgen gezien) . Zelfs jouw tip over aangelijnde honden heeft mij veel stress bespaard.
Kortom, geweldig en bij deze onze dank.
Met vriendelijke groet van Yolanda en Peter.
Enjoyed the walk "from Kalives to the river Koiliaris and the Venetian Watermills"!  On the page 37 of the description there's a small change: the tree in the middle of the road is now a trunk... they cut it (it's only about 1 meter high). Big compliments for the description! Very clear by using the numbers of the Water Pipes, clever idea. We did the walk in 3 hours, but we're pretty fast walkers. 3,5 hours is the average what people would walk.
Excellent! Jacquelien
Dear Mr Wolfffenbuttel & Mr van der Meijden
 
 Firstly I wanted to thank you both for making your excellent books of walks available. Two years ago we bought "Discover Vamos" and last September "Discover Almyrida & Kalyves ...on Foot". We usually visit Kalives in September and really enjoyed trying some of the shorter walks in the late afternoon. As we are prone to getting lost !! we really appreciated the clarity of the instructions, especially the frequent references to the numbered water pipes. Knowing the length and approximate timing of the walks, and their difficulty, was also a great help. You obviously have a great deal of local knowledge and we are very happy that you have chosen to share it in your books. We look forward to trying a few more of the walks next September.
Thank you again.
Kind regards Anne Abdo
Hello, Berend,

I purchased a copy of your Discover Chania.... at the Mediteraneo bookshop and found it very helpful for exploring the city. It's compact version was helpful as well as the color coding of the various walks on the maps and relevant pages detailing the information and history, etc. The Tips and reminders or alerting sentences in bold, e.g., "enjoy fantastic views over the old town" and important names, were also very useful. Well thought out. The photos, large and small, were also helpful. Well done.

I was so busy I didn't have a chance to go back to the book store to check out your other "Discover....." books, but I am dreaming about another visit Crete and especially Chania to experience more of this lovely place.

Best wishes,

Gerhard Ehrenspeck
