Definitive Cultural Tour of Sri Lanka          

Cultural Tour of Sri Lanka

Visiting the north of the island while it still has few tourists was a privilege and greatly interesting and enjoyable. It was an authentic experience and to be encouraged for anyone who is not afraid to go off the beaten track a bit.

Silk Road to Samarkand          

Silk Road to Samarkand, Uzbekistan (with Fergana Valley extension)

Taking a small group holiday which was well planned and excellently organised must be the best way to experience this part of the Silk Road. From train journeys to small vehicle travel and a local internal plane made the sightseeing varied and gave the opportunity to meet so many friendly local people. Architecture and history came to life with a very excellent local guide. It was fun too and even a 'cooking lesson' in a local home was provided at our request! The whole visit expanded our knowledge of the Uzbeki country, its local communities, its religion and heritage. I highly recommend it!

Lares Trek & Royal Inca Trail to Machu Picchu          

A fantastic Peruvian holiday - Private Departure

Everything went like clockwork from first to last. Our local guides looked after us amazingly well and were mines of information about everywhere we visited. We saw fantastic sights - from remote mountain villages on the Lares Trek, to tourist hot-spots around the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, to city sophistication in the Miraflores district of Lima. We met interesting people, encountered amazing wildlife, ate (too much!) wonderful food and all in all had the most memorable experience on a continent we had never visited before.

Introduction to Alpine Mountaineering          

Excellent experience - Alpine Mountaineering

Had 5 days private guiding learning Alpine mountaineering skills as first trip to the Alps. Great location. Hotel very friendly and accommodating, with good food. Guides extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Gained enough confidence and knowledge to plan our own trips in the future.

K2 & Gondogoro La          

Remarkable and challenging trek

As mountain 'addicts' Concordia was a must visit destination realised at last by this trip. We were not disappointed. The awe inspiring approach to Condordia and arrival (with triple ankle fracture) will live long in our collective memories! For our depleted group (i.e our sons), the crossing of the Gondogoro La surpassed even the splendours of Concordia. We were blessed by excellent weather and unrestricted views of all the mountain icons. Our support team, the UK leader, Chris Darby, the local company and Mountain Kingdoms back in the UK were universally excellent and made the medical evacuation as stress free as possible. Despite the dramatic deviation from the schedule for two members of our family, we all consider the trip to be a truly remarkable experience. Thank you.

Realm of the Polar Bear in Depth, Arctic

K2 & Gondogoro La          

A truly fantastic trekking experience

The Trek was well organised and managed. This Trek was without doubt the most breathtakingly beautiful scenery set in the most hostile landscape I have yet travelled in. The mountain scenery is in my view truly jaw dropping and to see mountains like K2 , Broad Peak, “The Gasherbrums” and the smaller but equally spectacular Trango Towers, Leila Peak, Crystal and Marble Peak was truly amazing. My thanks for all the background work that your team and guides put in on our behalf that made it a success and I hope that you will continue to offer this trek going forward.

La Palma - North to South          

Brilliant La Palma trip

‘Breathtaking view’ is a much over used expression; the Taburiente Ridge is the real deal!

Every day was so different, great walks, great views, delicious food and wine.

Three Peaks of the Balkans          

What a wonderful trip!

The scenery was spectacular. I loved hiking in remote places and staying with lovely local families. The food was fantastic as well. Semir was a great guide who taught us a lot about the region and its history. I can definitely recommend this trip and I am looking forward to returning to the Balkans soon.

Three Peaks of the Balkans

Well organised, wonderful scenery, remote places and a superb guide - Sameer was just the best and it was clear that whoever he met along the way really liked and respected him.

Midnight Sun & the Mountains of Lofoten          

Midnight Sun and the Mountains of Lofoten

This is a lovely week in wonderful scenery, comfortable accommodation with excellent meals provided by Katya. The trip was well graded and our leader was first rate.

Dolomites Circuit Trek          

Great routes and great guides

The 'mechanics' and organisation was up to MK's usual high standard. The Trek itself was probably the most enjoyable weeks walking I have ever done. The scenery was stunning and the guide was excellent. My 8th trip with MK and the as a complete week the best I have been on. I would recommend this ever changing landscape to anyone.

Midnight Sun & the Mountains of Lofoten          

Mountains of Lofoten

We had a great trip and it fully met our expectations. Roope modified the trip to make the most of the excellent weather that we were lucky enough to experience. The views from the peaks were stunning.

Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu & the Galapagos          

Amazing Sacred Valley trip!

It is evident how much work has been done to team up with local operators who are able to deliver the quality and blend of daily activity that combine major sites with equally important ones which are off-the-beaten-track. The hotels are good quality, without being luxurious and food generally was better than expected. Transport arrangements were all excellent, as was support from your head office team.

Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu & the Galapagos          

Fantastic Cruise

Everything about the cruise was fantastic. Each day presented a new experience with a variety of activities on offer. Both guides were very good at explaining what would be happening and their insight into the islands and wildlife made each trip a worthwhile experience.

Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu & the Galapagos          

Amazing Sacred Valley trip!

I cannot praise enough the staff who made our holiday so enjoyable. We had a wonderful time and it is an experience that neither of us will ever forget.

Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu & the Galapagos

Peru is a complete delight and Moray was a particular highlight, I have never seen anything quite like it!

Nyika Plateau & Liwonde Walking Safari          

Nyika Plateau & Liwonde Walking Safari

It’s not difficult to see why travellers return from Malawi with warm memories. Around every turn I was greeted with welcoming smiles and spectacular scenery.

Gentle Walking Ecuador & Galapagos Safari          

Ecuador and the Galapagos Safari

This trip combines exploring on foot in the north of Ecuador, staying in magnificent haciendas steeped in history and of course experiencing all the Galapagos Islands have to offer. Actually staying on the Galapagos Islands and being able to stroll around in the early mornings and evenings really added to the experience of being here. It was a time to chat to local people, relax and reflect on the days activities. As an alternative to a cruise I would really recommend it.
