Cardamom Mountains Trek 20/06/2017
Wonderful holiday to Cambodia
This was a well organised and wonderfully varied trip. The conversations with local people about their country were part of what made it special for me as well as the many amazing sights. There were some added delights that were a complete surprise, like seeing fireflies on the river at Kampot, delicious food and delightful hotels.

Silk Road to Samarkand 20/06/2017
Well organised trip to Samarkand
What we enjoyed about travelling with Mountain Kingdoms was the small group size. We were the smallest group we saw and for us that made the trip all the more special and manageable. A well organised trip.

Three Peaks of the Balkans 18/06/2017
Enjoy the Stunningly Beautiful Balkans
If anyone is looking for an alternative to overcrowded routes in popular European mountain ranges the Balkans is certainly it. Mountain Kingdom's '3 Peaks of the Balkans' trek really whets the appetite for further exploration of this stunningly beautiful area. It has all the intrepid hiker could want: incredible scenery, the chance to see flora and fauna in abundance and the opportunity to experience the warm hospitality of the balkan people. I will definitely be returning!

Three Peaks of the Balkans 14/06/2017
Beautiful scenery and wild flowers, and great hospitaility
A very enjoyable trip. The scenery was beautiful; the wild flowers – gentians, orchids, primulas, geums, etc – provided the best display we have ever seen (including in the Alps), the accommodation and food were generally very good and the itinerary was well planned (it was good to intersperse the trekking with trips to two beautiful monasteries; and we liked having a full last day of trekking – by contrast, some trips peter out with only a brief walk on the final day). Semir Kardovic was an excellent guide and we enjoyed his company.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Bhutan 12/06/2017
A well planned adventure in a lovely country. Very high quality transport. I even got to meet the king! Everything seemed to have been thought of.

Mini Annapurna Circuit
Excellent organisation. Our leader Mani was an interesting guide with tremendous knowledge of local customs, flora and fauna. During the trip I wasn't feeling very well and the leader was very supportive. All staff we had contact with in Nepal were most helpful.

Singalila Ridge Top Walk 12/06/2017
We value the slick organisation of a Mountain Kingdoms holiday. Transfers, transport and provisions were all excellent. This was our 4th Mountain Kingdoms holiday and lived up to expectations.The Brahmaputra river cruise exceeded expectations. Excellent food, accommodation and service.

Three High Passes to Everest 12/06/2017
A truly memorable Nepal trek
What we enjoyed about travelling with Mountain Kingdoms was everything - from the start being met at the airport, all the transfers went smoothly.The team in Kathmandu and Lukla were excellent.We could not have had any better guides, Chundi and Choomba were brilliant. Knowledgeable and informative, supportive and encouraging when needed. In the evenings they joined in the card games - they really made the holiday.The porters although their English was limited, had a great sense of humour and looked after us brilliantly.The tea houses were good, obviously some a lot better than others, but all were clean and the food was good.A truly memorable trek, the weather was fabulous, the scenery stunning and we even had snow and found snow leopard tracks!

Enjoyable holiday to Nepal
It was our first trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The arrangements were all good and we were well looked after. The mix of the holiday was excellent: cultural, trekking and wildlife. We loved the Everest flight add-on. It was good being part of a small group. Also good to be able to bolt on an extension (Chitwan). Two nights at Dwarika's at the end was inspired as well (an experience in itself).

North to South Vietnam in Style 12/06/2017
Enjoyable Vietnam tour
I enjoyed everything, I don't know how you did it for the money. The hotels were stunning. The transport, guides, hotels, boats, bikes, restaurants used were all excellent.

Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Trek 08/06/2017
Kumano Kodo trek, Japan
As ever the trip was very well planned and researched. The balance between trekking and culture was excellent. The opportunity to stay in traditional Japanese inns and the food they provided was a highlight.Our guide, Yumi, was exceptional. She combined trek leading with information about Japanese history and culture superbly - from past experience we know this is a very difficult balance. In addition her organisation and people management were first class, in sometimes difficult circumstances and always with charm and a smile.

Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Trek 08/06/2017
One of the best holidays in our lives
We can honestly say that our Kumano Kodo holiday (2017) has been one of the best in our lives and we enjoyed every minute of our amazing trip.We particularly enjoyed the combination of nature, exercise and culture. We are grateful for the variety of places to stay, from Japanese B&B to large modern hotels to monastery lodgings. We believe that this smart choice of venues to visit and places to stay gave us a unique opportunity to learn about and appreciate the Japanese way of life.And we would like to mention that the trip would not have been the same without our amazing guide, Yumiko. Her attitude to her role has been fantastic. Everything had been organised perfectly and we always knew what to expect.Yumi’s knowledge of Japanese culture and history is superb and she is one of the main reasons why every one of us fell in love with Japan. Yumi went way over and above her duties to make the trip special and memorable for everyone in our diverse group. On several occasions, she even organised an alternative transportation for people who needed to take an easier route. Two people in a group had their birthday during the walk and Yumi had thrown us a surprise party that we would remember forever.We would like to thank the Mountain Kingdom for this amazing holiday and would not hesitate to recommend the agency to all our friends, and our special thanks go to our beloved guide, Yumiko-san.

Spirit of Shackleton, Antarctica 08/06/2017
Spirit of Shackleton, Antarctica cruise
We want you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed it all. The ship was excellent - the team was super, the Captain too, and they all did their very utmost to give everybody the best possible experience, and some of the lectures were outstanding. The general ship’s crew were also excellent and everything was done or provided to a high level, with a smile and obvious willingness. Unfortunately the desserts were irresistible! It was certainly a well-run and happy ship.So many thanks to Mountain Kingdoms - to Jim for his well-timed phone call that put us on a ship with the desired route with only a six-month wait (many on board had booked two years in advance), for April’s efficient flight booking and Liz’s overall organisation and question answering.Mountain Kingdoms have been recommended by us already, so hopefully you’ll get some more bookings.We hope to travel again with you in the future.

Lares Trek & Royal Inca Trail
It was great to visit mountain communities and to trek traditional ancient paths once used by the Incas and still in constant use by the local farmers today. The high passes that you cross feel wild and remote, but one of the great pleasures of the trek was meeting locals along the way, herding their llamas and tending to their high pastures. The Sacred Valley, with its amazing Inca remains, can at times feel quite busy, but out on the Lares trek you really do get away from it all.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Bhutan 02/05/2017
Definitive Cultural Tour of Bhutan, 8th April 2017
We had the most unforgettable holiday in Bhutan. Apart from visiting all the cultural sites, we were invited to join local people having a picnic at the Paro Tsechu, listened to the nuns singing their prayers at the Kila Gompa nunnery set high in the mountainside and even tried our hand at archery, their national sport. Our guide was exceptional and all the arrangements for our stay were excellent. We felt very privileged to have been able to visit this beautiful country and it's people.
