Ganesh Himal Trek          

Good service from Mountain Kingdoms

The staff at Mountain Kingdoms were helpful and were easily contactable by telephone or e-mail. The booking was straightforward and all my questions were answered. Guide was excellent, he had good command of the English language and was very knowledgeable about the temples and Bhutan. The food was nearly always buffet style and therefore you could pick and choose what you wanted. Overall it was a good trip. The overall organisation was very good and I hope to use Mountain Kingdoms again.

Luxury Lodges of Everest          

Excellent local guide

This was our first experience of a holiday like this and we were far from disappointed. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather and the best guide, Nima, a group could ask for. He was truly inspirational and made our trip very memorable, such a credit to your company.

Fabulous holiday to Patagonia

Thoughtfully put together with smooth organisation and delicious food. The guides are a great way of engaging with the locals, they were absolutely great. EcoCamp a special experience (the beds are a dream!!). Airport transfer worked very well. Altogether a fabulous holiday.

Annapurna Circuit          

An amazing experience trekking around the Annapurna Circuit

After one night in Katmandu, we drove over to start our 17 day trek around the beautiful Annapurnas. Every day brings fresh challenges and different views of the snow-capped peaks as we ascend to the Thorong-La at over 17,000ft. The return journey was equally fascinating as we trekked through a variety of terrains from bleak rocky uplands, alongside a wide expanse of river-bed, through lush forests and cultivated hill farms. We met many friendly Nepalese villagers and felt humbled by their lifestyle making the most of little resources. Back in the bustling city of Katmandu, we relaxed in the aptly named Shangri-La Hotel.

Golden Trails of Burma          

An appropriate title.

This was our first trip with Mountain Kingdoms and in all respects it exceeded our expectations. The group size, 8 in our case, was just right. The itinerary along with the walking enabled us to gain a good insight into life in Myanmar and helped understand the influence that religion plays in people's everyday activities. We would thoroughly recommend this trip.

Cultural Cycling Tour of Burma          

Excellent local Burmese guide

Well thought out itinerary - good variety. Excellent local guide, the quality of the guide is crucial to the success of these group holidays. Small group size. Good hotels (much needed after a day cycling!).

Very active trip, never a dull moment.

Classic Luangwa Walking Safari in Style          

Wonderful Zambia safari

What an experience. In addition to countless other wildlife, I tracked seven lions on foot, watched three leopards with their kill in trees just above me, saw two giant porcupines taking an evening stroll and marvelled at hundreds of brilliant bee-eaters. And the best bit was that I didn't have to share them with anyone else; no noisy vehicles, no distractions. Just us, our superb guide and an armed scout out in the wild Zambian bush.

Hill Country Heights Trek          

This trip exceeded our expectations - brilliant.

The whole experience was the type of trip we were looking for to gain an insight into rural Sri Lanka away from the tourist areas with a particular emphasis on pristine scenery, fauna and flora and the opportunity to meet local and varied villagers. The accommodation was interesting and exciting, we always selected the local food and were never disappointed by random service stations for lunch to top of the range hotels. Every Sri Lankan we encountered couldn't have been more welcoming. A particular mention should go to Hafeel our young trekking guide whose friendly nature has rewarded him with a wealth of contacts along the way. He was able to give us an insight into the homes of Tamil tea pickers, paddy field workers..... over many cups of tea. His experienced eyes spotted so many birds and other animals and countless interesting plants.

Golden Trails of Burma          

Golden Trails of Burma (Myanmar) - Tailor Made Holiday

We thoroughly enjoyed our first holiday both with Mountain Kingdoms and to South East Asia. The programme was packed and varied and we observed life in rural areas and in the busy cities as well as visiting numerous beautiful temples and pagodas. Our guide Zaw Zaw was very informative and friendly and patient and helpful when we fancied some retail therapy. Burma is a lovely place to visit as there is so much to see and the people were really friendly.

Cardamom Mountains Trek          

Mini adventures in Cambodia

Three older ladies had an adventure: We overheard our first guide inform the second one that we looked a lot younger than we were - I wonder if he knew we were listening? This holiday was full of experiences and movement across the country between sights and environments: We seemed constantly to be on the move (often in boats of varying size) without feeling any rush and without any boredom in the travelling. The walks we did were never as strenuous as those we do regularly in Lakeland and so we were comfortable if a little warm. The trip included so many aspects of this country and its past - the recent history of the killing fields and ancient history of the old Capital at Siem Reap, the old and new in cities, forests, along rivers and on the coast. So much to see and appreciate. We expected to be wowed by the sights but we didn't expect to love the food and the people so much. We were so well looked after and yet every day was an adventure: Sunrise at Angkor Wat, sunset and fireflies in Kampot, chips and chilli for breakfast rowing down the river from Chi Phat, coconuts on Rabbit Island beach and pancakes for breakfast at the wildlife release station. Did I mention the carvings in the river and on the temples? Wonderful Cambodia!
