Dolomites Circuit Trek          

Private Itinerary - Dolomites Circuit Trek August 2020

From the outset an immaculate and smart Mercedes taxi collected us. Our guide Michele was excellent in every respect, his immense knowledge of the mountains, spoken English, sense of fun and humour all made for a great guide throughout the trek. He thought to book ahead for lunch stops which was essential. The Rifugios were all of a high standard as was the food and wine offer, certainly way better than in the western Italian alps. Simple things like decent bathrooms, towels and linens all added to the sense of family run and caring Rifugios. The treks were all well within our groups ability and a couple of the shorter days could have been longer, Michele did extend the hikes to avoid us arriving at lunch time to the overnight stops. The scenery was breathtaking aided by fabulous weather. The Dolomite range are a wonder of the world. Many thanks for organising such a great trek.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Cambodia          

Simply a superb tour

This was quite simply one of the very best trips I have ever been on and I have been on some excellent ones including with Mountain Kingdoms. The hotel quality surpassed expectations nearly everywhere. The trip was a superb blend of culture, ancient sites, wildlife and relaxation. The drivers and guides were not only knowledgeable and wonderfully helpful but kept dreaming up lovely little surprises for us! The ground agents were exceptional too. They arranged all sorts of wonderful things as part of their package. For example, one day we were told that lunch would be at a "traditional Khmer wooden house" and when we pulled up in the beautiful garden we were greeted by a chef and a waiter from our own hotel who had been driven there to provide a little banquet just for us. We were the only diners and felt like royalty as we were welcomed by the two of them with cold drinks and towels and also with genuine friendliness, The food was delicious too and so beautifully presented! Quite simply a superb trip that I would unhesitatingly recommend to anyone.

Morocco Coastal Trek & Essaouira          

Morocco coastal trek

Exciting holiday in still unspoilt coastal areas and lovely city of Essauria with excellent hotel and friendly staff Very good guide on the trek.

Classic Mekong River Cruise, Saigon to Angkor Wat in Style          

Relaxing pampered holiday

Being able to go out twice a day to look at the countryside and watch the workers busy in the fields, etc. was a complete joy. We had marvellous food and were thoroughly spoilt.

Historical Ethiopia & the Simien Mountains          

Fascinating culture for the experienced traveller

I would recommend this holiday although there were a few hiccups; some of these issues will hopefully be resolved for future dates of this tour; tour leader sometimes nonchalant and hotels not quite living up to expectations and a few days that could have been much better organised. However, Ethiopia has an amazing cultural and historical heritage and on this tour you have plenty of time to take most of it in - it is truly fascinating - and the itinerary most days was at a comfortable pace. The Simien Mountains are spectacular. However, if you are not an experienced traveller, used to dealing with both heat, cold and occasionally discomfort, I would perhaps not choose this tour as your first adventure holiday.

Mountain Kingdoms' comment: I am very sorry to hear your comments about the Guide. I will look at the feedback from other clients on the tour and will take some appropriate action. Many thanks for your feedback. Steve Berry

K2 Base Camp Trek          

Remarkable and challenging trek (Review taken on K2 & Gondogoro La Trek)

As mountain 'addicts' Concordia was a must visit destination realised at last by this trip. We were not disappointed. Our support team, the UK leader, Chris Darby, the local company and Mountain Kingdoms back in the UK were universally excellent. We all consider the trip to be a truly remarkable experience. Thank you.

K2 Base Camp Trek

The trek was a fantastic experience. Once in a lifetime, jaw droppingly amazing.

Gorilla & Wildlife Walking Safari, Uganda          

Wildlife sightings of a life time

Uganda was so much more than expected. A beautiful country with a greater than expected range of environments, from mountains to lakes and from tea plantations to pineapple farms. This trip combines the classic African savannah and its wildlife with mountain and water wildlife experiences culminating in an amazing day in the jungle with the mountain gorillas. If you love Africa you will not be disappointed by the opportunities to meet the local people, experience their lives and look in wonder on the Big 5, the great apes and outstanding birdlife

Summits of Meru & Kilimanjaro 5,895m/19,340ft          

Summits of Meru & Kilimanjaro

Ascending Meru & Kilimanjaro proved an excellent combination as the former allowed us to acclimatise very effectively for the latter. The contrast in the wildlife & plantlife to be seen, as well as the numbers of walkers on the 2 mountains, were also worthwhile. There was also a lovely symmetry in being able to see one mountain from the other. The local Guide & his team of assistant guides, cook, waiter, toilet team & porters were superb & very friendly.

Kilimanjaro Summit, 5,895m/19,340ft - Lemosho Route          

Kilimanjaro all the way

Excellent holiday, all staff and porters could not be more helpful. Good food good equipment. Made it to the top without painkillers or altitude sickness etc but it was so much harder than I thought it would be. Especially the trekking between camps. Don’t underestimate the trip!

Hill Country Heights Trek          

Hill Country Heights.

One excellent aspect of our trip was that we spent several days completely away from the tourist route. We met Sri Lankans going about their daily lives and all were welcoming and friendly. On most other days we encountered few tourists. The trek took us through countryside, tea plantations and villages we would never have been able to see on our own. Views were excellent and we saw many birds including several Sri Lankan endemics. We particularly enjoyed staying in the colonial hotel at Bandarawela and the colonial tea estate bungalow in Dickoya. At mealtimes we always chose the Sri Lankan dishes and they were invariably excellent.

Private Departure          

Davison/ Kessler in Kerala

Because everything was so well organised, we were able to fully enjoy all the delights that India was able to offer. We stayed in interesting, comfortable accommodation - each leaving us with lovely memories and adventures. Everything seemed to work seamlessly and we felt fully supported by Mountain Kingdom and their colleagues throughout the holiday. We could not have asked for anything all exceeded our expectations.

Everest Base Camp in Style          

A real life affirming experience

A real life affirming experience. I have always dreamed of making this trip and a recent sabbatical from work allowed me to do so. I cannot remember the last time I wrote to a company to commend their service but felt compelled to do so on this occasion! The obvious planning that has gone into the itinerary shows through. Some off the best days were the acclimatisation days off the beaten track. Our guide was sensational. He really fostered a great group spirit and got all 10 of us onto the Base Camp. An incredible achievement. Nothing was too much trouble for the whole team. I cannot praise him and his team highly enough. I have already recommended this trip to three people who were contemplating the trek. Already looking at your brochure for next year! Good Job!

Everest Base Camp in Style          

EBC in Style - November 2019

Outstanding experience, from beginning to end! This trip is definitely a life-list adventure for anyone who loves the mountains. The scenery is world class, and the infrastructure provides an accessible means to high-altitude trekking. The local staff were exceptional, from our guides, Kami and Phurba, who were very knowledgeable, experienced, and attentive, to the hard-working porters and excellent service at the Everest Summit Lodges. To top it off, the weather in November was perfect. Throughout the process, Mountain Kingdoms made the journey a pleasure to accomplish. Highly recommended!

Mini Annapurna Circuit          

Amazing Annapurna Trek - Private Departure

The "Mini Annapurna Circuit" was beautiful. Highly recommended for the incomparable, stunning scenery of the Annapurna Region. If you're up for a more rigorous trek, I'd recommend a less traveled area (Nar-Fu) because of increasing roads and crowds. This is an overall great introduction to Nepalese culture and beauty.

Morocco Coastal Trek & Essaouira          

Easy Morocco trek

This was a delightfully relaxing combination of a fairly easy trek taking in superb coastal scenery and the fascinating sights of Marrakech and Essaouira. Just the right balance of seaside and souks!

Historical Ethiopia & the Simien Mountains          

Historical Ethiopia

What a fantastic trip! Just the right blend of historical sights and walking in spectacular scenery. It went way beyond all my expectations.

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills          

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills - Private Departure

A fabulous holiday - about 4-5 hours of walking each day (each day is different) with beautiful scenery and walking through remote villages. Every afternoon there is some down time, so a good time to relax and detox! Everyone is very welcoming and service is amazing.

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills          

An amazing trip and the scenery was WOW!

WOW! WOW! WOW! Had an absolutely fabulous time trekking the Annapurna Foothills... everything was so well organised and our guides and porters all did a fabulous job. The scenery was outstanding and as a keen photographer I had a field day! Thank you Mountain Kingdoms, I will be back!

Three High Passes to Everest          

Three High Passes

The trip is tough mentally and physically. Expect some tough days and washing your armpits in a dog bowl. However, Nepal is amazing and the whole trip was too much to absorb! I highly recommend the trip
