Montenegro Lakes and Mountains          

Fabulous trip in a beautiful country

All the walks were well paced and took us to beautiful spots in the Montenegro. Food, Hotels and Transport was well organised and fantastic.

Easter Island & the Atacama Desert          

Moai and geysers

This was a wonderful trip full of amazing experiences from the salt flats and steaming geysers of the Atacama to the iconic statues (moai) of Easter Island. Our special interest in wildlife and especially birds was well catered for with four species of camelid and three species of flamingo in the Atacama along with sightings of vizcachas near the Tatio geysers and Fabian's lizard which is only found on the Atacma salt flats. Our guide was also very knowledgeable about the plants we encountered on our walks and pointed out many different medicinal plants including Riga Riga which is sometimes used in the delicious pisco sour drink which we enjoyed sampling at Happy Hour every evening! Easter Island was all we expected and much more. The walks were exceptional and we visited many incredible places without seeing any other tourists. Equipped with head torches our guide even took us down some of the island's many lava tubes where we spotted endemic ferns and wild guavas growing. We can't recommend this trip too highly and would love to return to explore more of this fascinating region.

Thunder Dragon Trails in Style          

Remarkable holiday in Bhutan

A very special 'thank you' must be extended to our guide and driver. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the range of aspects and adapted the itinerary to our personal wishes and abilities. His English was excellent and at times we had to remember he was Bhutanese. He certainly went out of his way to show us places that might easily have been missed or not strictly on the itinerary. Altogether, a most remarkable and special holiday. Thank you.

Good itinerary Bhutan

A shorter version of our popular Gentle Walking Bhutan, perfect if you are short on time or want to combine your holiday with another destination.

Thunder Dragon Trails - Helpful staff

The pre-trip information and advice was excellent and very comprehensive. MK staff were very helpful and answered all our queries. The arrangements worked flawlessly and the people who met us for transfers to and from our flights were most helpful and efficient.

Silk Road to Samarkand          

Silk Road to Samarkand

Excellent. Every day was well detailed and we had time to ourselves from time to time to go around on our own. Very varied itinerary. Good hotels and excellent food and restaurants.

Silk Road to Samarkand          

Silk Road to Samarkand - superb!

This tour successfully gives an excellent overview of a large area of Uzbekistan, taking in Tashkent, Khiva, Bokhara and Samarkand. You'll go round the remains of fortresses in the desert from 5th century BC, visit the jaw dropping monuments in all of the the towns, hear tales of Genghis Khan, Tamerlane and many others, stroll through bazaars and haggle with the friendly stall holders for spices, dried fruits, silks, embroidered textiles, ceramics, and so much more! This is a country of extremes, well geared up for tourism with its comfortable hotels yet retaining its ancient charm and mystique in abundance. There are plenty of opportunities in the free time to explore further behind the scenes. And the food............so good! Just do the holiday and experience it all!!

Camino de Santiago - the Northern Way          

The Quieter Way

A beautiful route through rural northern Spain, the Northern Way has everything: wonderful scenery, fantastic food, great places to stay, friendly locals and an interesting history. This route offers an insight into the rural existence here, that insight being enhanced by our knowledgeable guide. It is worth taking an extra day or two in Santiago either at the outset, as we did, or at the end, taking time to explore the old town area.

Wild Mustang Trek          

Wild Mustang Trek

Attending the Tiji Festival in Lomanthang was a wonderful experience. The landscape north of Lomanthang and also the eastern part of Mustang are truly spectacular and definitely wild. Great mountain views of the snowcapped Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri and Tilicho. The walking is challenging in parts but a very rewarding experience.

Kyushu Trails - Island of Fire          

A fantastic trip

My time is Japan was amazing; it is an incredible country for so many different reasons. The first thing that struck me was how exotic and different it was in comparison to anywhere I have ever travelled to before. I felt very at home during my time in Japan, the people were extremely welcoming, the culture and history both interesting and fascinating and the scenery was beautiful, unlike any I have ever experienced. All in all, Japan is such a wonderfully diverse country – perfect for an unforgettable holiday.

Mount Kailash Trek          

Mount Kailash Trek

I have given the trip an "excellent" tick since it is hard to criticise an organisation that succeeded in delivering what was, for me, a hugely valuable experience - where the location genuinely transcended my expectation.

Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes          

Tough but doable

The itinerary is well thought out to ensure acclimatisation to altitude is likely to be successful whilst providing interesting walking on the acclimatisation days. The staff are always friendly and helpful to ensure the smooth running of the trip but clients need to be aware some days are long and hard although the views do provide a welcome respite.

Cultural Highlights of Bhutan and Tibet          

Perfect

Wonderful experience.

Gentle Walking Bhutan          

Gentle Walking Bhutan

Group size just right. A good mix of ages. The trip ran smoothly as far as meals were concerned everywhere, prompt and efficient.

Annapurna & Everest in Style          

Annapurna & Everest in Style

Huge range of adventures all in one trip, with generally the best accommodation available.

Annapurna & Everest in Style          

Bistarai, bistarai

Bistarai, bistarai - our guide's words as we set off to climb the steep and rugged paths towards Tyengboche at altitude. It worked - the slowly, slowly pace helped us acclimatise and ensured that we enjoyed all the sensory experiences that a trek like this can offer. We gained a precious and tiny insight into life in a wholly different country from our own and were changed by that experience. Unforgettable!

         

Through the Annapurna foothills to Poon Hill

This private itinerary took us through the Annapurna foothills and on to Poon Hill to see the sun rise. Much of the walking was on good paths through forested areas with abundant and very colourful bird life. The walking also included small, quiet paths through hamlets and terraces, where local farmers could be seen working with simple ox drawn ploughs. The Ker and Downey lodges in the Modi Khola valley were all very comfortable with great views of the Himalayan peaks. The comfortable daytime temperature and moderate altitude make this a very enjoyable area to walk in.

Langtang & the Laurebina La          

Langtang & the Laurebina La Trek

Good route - lots of variety - scenic, ethnic and walking

Langtang & the Laurebina La          

Langtang & the Laurebina La

We felt we always had excellent care throughout the trip.

Langtang & the Laurebina La          

This was an excellent trekking experience

The combination of high mountain experience in Langtang and Laurebina La, with the slower paced but just as strenuous trek in Helambu, was ideal.
