As one of the country’s leading operators of walking holidays, we were pleased to receive such a strong public vote in the ‘Best Adventure Travel Provider’ category at the inaugural 50+ Awards at the Pillar Hall, Olympia on 13 July 2012.
This follows on the heels of another major travel award earlier this year by Wanderlust Magazine for the ‘UK’s favourite holiday company’ where we won bronze following a consumer survey of top holiday companies, beating off stiff competition from 700 other tour operators. So your help here, if you voted for us, is appreciated, too.
This prestigious 50+ Awards attracted over 6,500 public voters who cast a total of 211,465 votes in 53 categories.
The top three nominees in this category were Trailfinders who won gold, Saga who received silver, and Ramblers Worldwide Holidays who took home the bronze award.
Commenting on this accolade, Kathy Cook, Joint Managing Director of RWH said, “The 50+ market is particularly important to us and it is great to have achieved such an overwhelming endorsement.
“This represents a very important segment of our business and our extensive range of guided walking holidays appeals to younger age groups as well.
“Our thanks to all those who voted for us and, of course, the organisers of the 50+ Show for making such a valuable contribution in supporting and promoting the walking fraternity. We would also like to congratulate our two worthy fellow operators, Trailfinders and Saga.”
