Dolomites Circuit Trek          

Dolomites Circuit Trek

Holiday was excellent. Excellent route, weather, views, food and great bunch of fellow travellers. And the guides were outstanding.. We chose this holiday over other similar treks because it promised time spent exploring the military history and the trip exceeded our expectations with an alternative descent down a WW1 tunnel network.

Three Peaks of the Balkans          

Three Peaks of the Balkans

There was nothing at all that we would suggest could be done differently, which is quite surprising for a trip of this length. The only surprise to us, but perhaps it will not be a surprise for much longer, is that others did not come on this trip with us to enjoy such good walking in a near pristine environment without the crowds typically experienced in the Swiss Alps and elsewhere. The message to others is that this is definitely a trip worth considering if you like high level walking, expansive views, alpine flowers, accommodations where you experience delightful local people who go out of their way to please, good food, an excellent itinerary, top notch guiding and the chance to explore an interesting wilderness area in near total solitude.

Nyika Plateau & Liwonde Walking Safari          

Great first trip to Africa

We were amazed by the green colour of Nyika plateau and the Livingstonia trail was a real highlight. The lodges were luxurious and the camping came with added comforts. The two days by the lake were restful and the trip round Bandawe school was inspiring. We saw lots of elephant and hippo from Mvuu lodge and the bush trek in Lliwonde National Park was fascinating - seeing things from an "animal's eye view". We were really welcomed and very well cared for by all of the local staff. We learned a lot about Malawi including how beautiful and mountainous it was.

Dolomites Circuit Trek          

The trekking holiday was excellent

We were with a mixed group of people who were of mixed ability and age and everyone enjoyed it and felt good about the challenges and their own personal achievements. The area was breathtakingly beautiful the whole way around and we would do the whole thing again.

Dolomites Circuit Trek          

Accurately reflects holiday

Trek greatly exceeded my expectations, the mountains although not particularly high are incredibly dramatic and the scenery changes at almost every turn. Excellent route. At this time of year the spring flowers are stunning. The Rifugio's are superb, food and accommodation was exactly right for a week in the mountains, very comfortable and the staff exceedingly friendly. The trek guides were exceptional and made the week very interesting and fun, they did everything possible to look after us so well. A marvellous week in an exceptional area with a lovely client group.

Gentle Walking & Wildlife Costa Rica          

Wonderful walking & wildlife

For a Central American country, Costa Rica defies preconceptions: it's politically stable, peaceful, well developed and has very high standards of hotels and service. But of course it’s the fantastic wildlife that steals the show. We saw so many wonderful birds and animals and yet we seem to have barely scratched the surface. Still, it’s always good to have a reason to return.

Gentle Walking & Wildlife Costa Rica          

Sloths and surprises!

Long on my travel wishlist, Costa Rica didn’t disappoint. From seeing a smiling sloth on my first day to walking through the weird and wonderful landscape of Rincon de la Vieja on my last, it was a trip of constant surprises and delights.

Silk Road to Samarkand          

Silk Road to Samarkand

Definitely could have not picked a better trip to go on or company to book it through! The trip was truly spectacular friendly tour guide who was beyond helpful to all of us! Any advice or queries we had were answered straight away! Fantastic accommodation,absolutely stunning scenery! You couldn’t ask for anything better than that really!

Three Peaks of the Balkans          

Go there before everyone else finds out about the 3 Peaks of the Balkans!

Excellent trek, well graded, with beautiful scenery in between the clouds, and the chance to meet really lovely, warm and hospitable people in countries which till quite recently were only associated with war and strife.

Silk Road to Samarkand          

Silk Road to Samarkand

I have wanted to travel the Golden Road to Samarkand since I was very young and the trip did not disappoint. We were a small group (8 people) and got on very well together in the company of our excellent guide. The itinerary was very well planned and I appreciated the 'free days' with time to revisit the best places, explore further and spend time chatting to people.

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.

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.
