A multi-mix delight

Our multi mix trip of trekking and sight seeing to Nepal and Bhutan was a delight. The itinerary well put together with trekking and altitude gradually getting more difficult as we approached the finale of an amazing and challenging day hiking 500 metres above Tigers Nest Monastery. The scenery in Kathmandu Valley and then Bhutan was breath taking. Much to wonder about the culture of both countries. Guides and hotel accommodation first class,

Kingdom of Mustang Trek          

Fantastic private Mustang trek

Spectacular scenery in Mustang. The region is so remote and beautiful with few other tourists/trekkers. Thank you Mountain Kingdoms for organising this fantastic trip for us.

Gentle Walking Bhutan          

Everything was a highlight on our private holiday in Bhutan

It's hard to pick out highlights. The whole experience was unforgettable, a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. Our guide and driver were exemplary. The landscapes were amazing. The initial treks were very challenging but prepared us well for the final descent to the Tiger's Nest Monastery. The decision to stay in 2 homestays was the right one, as we relished the opportunity to meet families, eat with them, and I spent a very happy evening chatting to 2 children, hearing about a 12 yr old's ambitions.

Cultural Cycling Tour of Bhutan          

Great cycling in Bhutan

Great cycling, wonderful scenery, and an amazing experience. The team looking after us could not have been more helpful. They were fun and easy to be with and anticipated our needs.

Everest Base Camp in Style          

Well taken care of throughout

The scenery, culture and people were amazing! Breathtaking mountain views were everywhere. Each day of trekking was well planned out, striking the right balance between new experience, acclimatization and physical challenge. The lodges were very nice with excellent service and food. At the higher altitude villages, the accommodates became more basic as expected, but we were well taken care of throughout. And we could not have asked for a better guide and assistants.

Gentle Walking Bhutan          

Superb organisation in Bhutan

The organisation or our private holiday was superb. Usually, we are fierce independent travellers but Bhutan does not cater to this. We were able to set our start time in the morning a little later to accommodate everyone's sleeping needs and our wonderful guide rescheduled the last few days of the trip so as to avoid a very long potential 7-8 hour drive back to Paro on windy mountainous roads. We split this return journey over 2 days and the re booking of hotels etc. was done seamlessly.

Annapurna Sanctuary          

A memorable family adventure

Our first trip to Nepal and exceeded all our expectations. A memorable family adventure with stunning scenery, good company and excellent guides and porters. Thoroughly recommend the trek for the mountains, cultural experiences and a challenge.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Bhutan          

Overall, a brilliant experience.

An excellent, well organised and varied tour. The hotels exceeded expectations with helpful staff and well equipped, comfortable bedrooms. All meals were well presented and of a high standard. Our guide was very knowledgeable and efficient and the driver competent throughout the mountain roads: 'a safe pair of hands'. Some walks were quite challenging and a degree of fitness should be recommended. Overall, a brilliant experience.

A holiday that leaves its mark

This is a great trip - it gives you a great opportunity to explore these countries through trekking, walking and sightseeing, with the excellent guides sharing some hidden gems with you, along the way. There are a couple of challenging days but the rewards for your hard work are well worth it. This is a really interesting area of the world to visit and an opportunity to see a way of life that is rare to see, and which seems to take you back in time, which leaves its mark on you.

Gentle Walking Bhutan          

Bhutan is like nowhere else

Travelling through Bhutan was an amazing experience, not least due to our superb guide, known to everyone as Bull. He has been a guide for 30 years and knows Bhutan, its history, customs and places intimately. As we were the only people on the trip, Bull was able to adjust and add to the itinerary to suit the weather, our interests and abilities (we are mid 70s), and local events. Bhutan is like nowhere else; unspoilt, peaceful, uncommercialised and very special. Go before it changes.

Gentle Walking Patagonia in Style          

Everything was great

The holiday was very organised, everything run smoothly. The scenery was exceptionally interesting - you were in the middle of nowhere, out of civilisation and next to nature. The accommodation was very good too, especially at the Estancia Christina. The food delicious. The title is a bit misleading. Everything else was great. (Thank you for your review Ioanna and we're so pleased you had a great time. In response to feedback we will look at the grading of the trip to take account of the longer walking days - the MK Team).

Everest Base Camp Trek          

Brilliant trek to Everest Base Camp

My once in a lifetime trip to Everest Base Camp was brilliant. It was wonderful to be immersed in the Nepalese culture with such a fun group of like minded people. Our Sherpa Sirdar and his team were so kind and helpful, it was a privilege to spend one night as guests in his home. I had carefully researched which travel company to go with (spreadsheet and list of criteria). Mountain Kingdoms came out a clear winner with their group size, organisation and ethics around carbon offsetting.

Fantastic experience in the Annapurnas

Fantastic experience walking in the Annapurna foothills with the mountains towering in the distance. Comfortable lodges, good food, very friendly people. Great hotel in Pokhara, and an amazing heritage hotel in Kathmandu. Good value for money as well.

Very special trip in the Annapurnas and Chitwan

The trekking and views of the Himalayas were great. Food excellent quality throughout. Superb customer service and support from local service companies. Walking with the elephants at Chitwan was very special.


Small group advantage

This was a great trip. Would love to have spent longer in the area. Semir was a really good guide with great knowledge of the area, nature and history. He was very patient and had a good sense of humour. We were a small group which was an advantage in this area where tourism is still growing as this gave us the chance to meet other trekkers in the small communal dining rooms along the way. The accommodation was varied, but overall the quality and comfort was better than we expected.

Morocco Coastal Trek & Essaouira          

A memorable holiday in Morocco

Everything went exactly according to plan from the moment of our arrival to our departure. We couldn't have wished for better accommodation in Marrakech and Essaouira. The guide (Hussein) and cook (Hassan) were great and the trekking was just right for us (easy but not too short). The camping was comfortable, trip companions friendly and stimulating, and the scenery along the coastline and the beaches was stunning. Perfect weather too! The farewell meal was the cherry on the cake. Memorable.

Cardamom Mountains Trails          

Cardamom Mountains Tailor Made Trip

A very varied and enjoyable trip with excellent local staff and hotels. A good mix including all the main tourist sights - avoiding the worst of the crowds - local markets and areas that are off the beaten track but well worth visiting. However, the jungle trek from Chi Pat has changed significantly now that a road has been built. (Thank you for your very helpful feedback and we will be changing the Chi Pat jungle walk for future departures - the MK team).

Luxury Lodges to Ama Dablam Base Camp          

Private departure to Ama Dablam - An amazing holiday!

We had an amazing holiday with a superb guide and amazing scenery . The food was very good and the accommodation comfortable. An excellent trip.

Complete Patagonia - Paine & Fitz Roy          

A great trip in Patagonia

This was a great trip. A combination of excellent sometimes strenuous day walks, memorable journeys and comfortable accommodation.

Mount Chomolhari & Lingshi Bhutan          

Private holiday to Nepal and Bhutan

We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bhutan and Nepal. Bhutan, particularly, was an astonishing cultural experience. The only minus was the food in Bhutan, which is frankly poor. Otherwise pretty much everything met or exceeded our expectations and the organisation was impeccable.
