Complete Patagonia - Paine & Fitz Roy
Stunning scenery; varied and well paced walks interspersed with excellent sight seeing days; attentive and well informed guides; good accommodation; lots of laughs with a great group.

Wild dogs on foot
A really satisfying active safari in a stunning location. I loved walking from camp to camp and we encountered some impressive wildlife including the painted wolf pack filmed for David Attenborough's Dynasties series.

Gentle Trekking Nakasendo Trail 03/12/2018
The trip was well thought out and organised
The different places we visited provided a good introduction to Japan. We especially liked travelling by public transport, (not by road in a coach or minibus), staying in the minshuku and ryokan, and the meals provided there. It was our first visit to Japan and we would like to go again.

Annapurna Base Camp in Style 01/12/2018
Amazing experience going to Annapurna Sanctuary (Nov 2018)
Our holiday was one of those experiences that we will not forget and we made friends that we have have stayed in touch with after our return. We had unseasonal snow that made the trek more challenging and added an element of risk. The guides and porters were superb and nothing was too much trouble. The tea houses were more basic than we expected and the food was OK. It was great coming back to Dwarika's at the end for a touch of luxury. We added the Bhutan extension which was absolutely superb. The scenery and monuments were superb and we had a great guide. A very good addition to the ABC in style.

Abc in style
It was an adventure. We did not expect so much snow and ice and felt a bit unequipped. Leader and porters were brilliant. Tea houses would have been so much better with a heater in the dining room, and hot showers were in very short supply even at someofthe lodges. In style was mostly the hotels

Cultural Cycling Tour of Bhutan 28/11/2018
The holiday was everything we had hoped it would be and more!
We got to see aspects of Myanmar that were definitely off the beaten track as well as the main tourist sites. It mixed comfort with the ability to test ourselves (whether on some of the cycles or in the choice of food). It was full-on but we never felt that we were pushed too hard. I'd recommend it to anybody!

Gentle Trekking Nakasendo Trail 28/11/2018
A wonderful trip
This trip was extremely well organised and all the travel arrangements etc worked perfectly. Aya was a very good guide giving us loads of insights into local culture and making requested amendments to the itinerary (we only asked for a few small ones!) with conscientiousness and good humour. The group size was ideal and everybody was very friendly and helpful to each other. Overall this was a wonderful trip in so many ways and I shall never forget it. Japan is such a beautiful and exciting country - made extra special by weather to die for, almost continuous wall to wall blue skies and warm sunshine every day but one!

Rodang La Trek, Eastern Bhutan 28/11/2018
Well organised and guided trekking through amazing scenery
The way the trekking staff worked as a team and were really helpful and friendly--and adaptable! All in all a great holiday--would thoroughly recommend

Gentle Walking Bhutan 27/11/2018
A wonderful experience!
This was a wonderful trip and an experience I will remember for a long time, particularly the climb up to the Tiger's Nest Monastery! We were very lucky to have Tshering as our tour leader, a very experienced guide and a really nice man. Everything went smoothly, thanks to the hard work he put in behind the scenes. Thanks to Mountain Kingdoms for offering such a good trip.

Langtang & the Laurebina La 27/11/2018
Langtang and the Laurebina La
A very enjoyable trek in stunningly beautiful mountain scenery. The itinerary allowed excellent acclimatisation in the Langtang valley, so we were well prepared for the more rapid ascent to Gosainkund and over the Laurebina La pass. The debris of the 2015 landslide that destroyed Langtang village is sobering, but the locals are now ready and keen for trekkers to return. Our local sherpa guide was excellent, and all travel arrangements, including for a personalised extension in India, worked smoothly.

Mount Chomolhari & the Bonte La 26/11/2018
Private Departure - Mind, body and spirit all deeply nourished!
I had dreamt of going to Bhutan for many years and ALL my hopes and expectations were met! It is a real jewel of a country, in such sharp contrast to India and Nepal (which I also love!). The landscape is, of course, stunning, the Bhuddist culture is rich and embracing, and the history and politics, not least the GNH, are deeply thought-provoking and optimistic. We only scratched the surface in two short weeks, but our itinerary and our wonderful guide have left me with an enriching and mind-expanding insight into a country with a very exciting approach to development.

Gentle Walking Canadian Rockies 26/11/2018
Gentle Walking Canadian Rockies
Claude worked really hard to give us a good experience of Canada. He organised our accommodation, transport and food really well. He cooked, drove us everywhere, planned our walks. He was always cheerful and pleasant and fun to be with. Claude is very knowledgeable about the area. Because of the weather, he had to organise alternative routes for us to walk and did this without any difficulty. We have travelled with MK before and have always been impressed with the quality of the in-country staff.

Gentle Walking Canadian Rockies 26/11/2018
Seeing the majestic and unforgetable Canadian Rockies
Having a fantastic guide in Claude Deschamps who cleverly tweaked our walking itinerary when we found ourselves in the middle if the coldest September weather in Alberta for 60 years! We enjoyed the snow which only enhanced the beauty of our surroundings. We also very much enjoyed the "gin club" and the cosy evening meals in the Pine Bungalows at Jasper cooked by Claude. This bonded our group of 11 really well.

Everest Base Camp in Style 26/11/2018
It was a great trip
It exceeded our expectations because of the knowledge of the Tour Guide. The hike was a journey during which we learned so much about the Nepalese culture, people, foods, plants, animals, etc. I am glad we did this trip, the Luxury Lodges were amazing and such a bonus compared to what other places people had to stay in.

Manaslu Circuit 26/11/2018
Your trips are always very well organised and the staff in Kathmandu are always very attentive and helpful. As with this kind of travel, all concerned while on trek need to show flexibility, and the guides and porters were only too willing to make the trek a wonderful experience.

Complete Patagonia - Paine & Fitz Roy 26/11/2018
Overall, this was a most enjoyable trip
All of the accommodation was of high quality. The trip was in three parts. The middle main part of the trip in Chilean and Argentinean Patagonia was flawless with six stunning day hikes and other events. The trip guide leader for the this main part, Kendra was exceptionally competent. The food and service at the Eco Camp was of a very high standard.
Mr N Parsons, Derbyshire
The trek itself was truly spectacular and I loved every step
Felt totally looked after from the moment we stepped off the plane til the moment we were dropped off back at the airport. Everyone we came into contact with really cared about our comfort and safety. The quality of the lodges ,staff ,food, comfort was beyond my expectations. To cap it all the first night and last two nights at the Dwarika's hotel were perfect. The whole experience was joyful , beautiful and special.
Mrs H Butcher, Cumbria
The most fantastic holiday in Nepal
The organisation, accommodation, food, guide, porters, in fact absolutely everything was spot on and contributed to making the whole experience magical. The awe-inspiring mountain vistas, lush vegetation, perfect weather and the friendliest people ever just made this whole experience absolutely magical.
