Brilliant experience and a top class guide (Ottman Filone). Saw a lot of interesting sites in our walk through the countryside including a visit to a potters place of work where we saw pottery made in the traditional fashion.

If you want to do the walk, I'd advise you to put your child in a child carrier (if still possible). I'm not sure they can accommodate donkeys to help. Maybe worth a call or an email to the organiser.
