Please note that this is a bus service - if you are not at the bus stop at the allocated time the bus will not wait! To be fair to other walkers we must depart at the advertised times.
You will need to pay extra fees (or taxi fares) to come back and collect you if you are not at the meeting spot.
Walk 91 recommend that you prepare/ train for the walk (it can be difficult if you are not fit) and to study the times and km's allocated each day. Only book this bus service if you are confident that you are walking within your means and can meet the bus at the advertised pick up times each day. Our bus times are conservative however and based on a person walking approx 3-4 km per hour carrying only a small day pack. Please read our terms and conditions.
