Gentle Walking Bhutan          

Worth the wait

We waited two years (due to covid!) for this trip to happen. Was it worth the wait? Definitely! Bhutan is a wonderful, beautiful experience, unlike anywhere else in the world I have been. The trip was well organised even given the last minute changes to the itinerary, the guide was very professional as was our driver but most of all, the Bhutanese people were so friendly and welcoming. Being offered tea with the locals on the Tiger's Nest trek was perhaps the highlight of the trip!

Gentle Walking & Wildlife Costa Rica          

Fantastic holiday to Costa Rica

This was a diverse and well paced adventure. Plenty of amazing flora and fauna. The travelling across the country did not feel onerous and was well worth it to allow us the chance to experience a range of scenery and different climatic conditions. Our guide, Tito, was excellent company and very knowledgeable, ably supported by our driver Leo. Accommodation was equally diverse, but always of a good standard. Fantastic!

Gentle Walking & Wildlife Costa Rica          

A thoroughly enjoyable holiday

The holiday was an excellent way to see the wildlife and scenic highlights of Costa Rica. It is a beautiful destination and even though it is now attracting increasing numbers of tourists, it is still possible to visit some less travelled to areas. This was our first experience of small group travel having always travelled independently in the past but selected this group tour as it was our fist visit to Latin America. Overall this was a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

Gentle Walking & Wildlife Costa Rica          

A wonderful trip to Costa Rica

This is a wonderful trip, with many opportunities to spot and photograph a variety of flora and fauna, and beautiful walks amongst lush vegetation. The guide was very interesting, organised and flexible, as well as being a great advocate for the Pura Vida Costa Rican outlook on life. Be prepared for wet and humid weather as this is what creates the environment for the wide variety of birds, animals, trees and flowers.

Everest Base Camp Trek          

Private holiday Everest Base Camp

Great trek from start to finish. Well looked after by engaging and hardworking guides and porters. Blessed with great weather, always sunny and a bit chilly at night. Achieved our goals and had great fun on the way.

Private Trek to Everest Base Camp

A good challenge with great scenery.

Everest Base Camp Trek          

Private Everest Trek - Second to none organisation

The logistics and organisation from start to finish were second to none, and at no point were we left wondering what was going to happen. People met us, always there on time or early, and transport was excellent. Everyone was friendly and helpful and gave the impression that they were genuinely trying to make our trip a memorable experience. The hotel in Kathmandu was an oasis and the food superb. Our guide, Mani, and his team were equally friendly and helpful.

Annapurna Sanctuary          

Loved the changing landscapes

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent Annapurna Sanctuary trip. All the travel arrangements ran smoothly. Our guide was excellent, and knowledgeable about birdlife which was an added bonus. We loved the changing landscapes, from chestnut forest to snowy peaks, and enjoyed passing through the villages, with water buffalo grazing and crops spread out to dry, and meeting other trekkers in the teahouses.

Torres del Paine Circuit, Chile          

Loved the trek

Trip of a lifetime

Possibly the best trip of my life so far. Everything was very well organised, Nepal is a staggeringly beautiful country and the people are wonderful. Our trek guide Bhudda was the perfect guide and it was a fantastic holiday. Really exceeded my expectations and I will absolutely book with Mountain Kingdoms again.

Langtang & the Laurebina La          

Private Trek to Langtang

This was an amazing two week trek seeing many different mountain ranges and differing environments. We saw many different types of wildlife including monkeys, herds of Yak and Mountain goats. The weather was cool but wonderful blue skies every day. We had a fantastic local team looking after us, supported by the Mountain Kingdom team.

Outstanding views on Kangchenjunga Trek

The mountain views on this trek were outstanding. The days to the viewpoints were long, but well worth the effort. The route taken by the trek allowed for good acclimatisation, and an interesting variety of landscapes as you progress towards the high mountains. (Private Departure)

Torres del Paine Circuit, Chile          

Patagonian beauty

The country, place and people were all charming. Patagonia was breathtakingly beautiful. The trek was amazing as were our two guides.

Torres del Paine Circuit, Chile          

A fantastic, faultless trip.

A fantastic trip, exceeding my expectations. Helped by being with a great group of people (who I had never met before the trip) and two brilliant Chilean guides. Amazing scenery and great weather, with snow on the highest section of the walk (as I would have wanted!) and sunshine for most of the rest of it. The Eco-camp was great, but even the other campsites were good in their own way - each one was different. Very well organised - faultless to be honest.

A well led trek

The trek was really well led with the leader available to us from 6am to bed-time. Pace was excellent for our group. Lodge staff were also very helpful.

Annapurna Base Camp in Style          

Annapurna Base Camp - A wonderful trip!

A wonderful trip. Although we love to travel, we would not have considered organising an experience like this for ourselves. We saw so much, learned so much and enjoyed the whole adventure from start to finish. Our guide, Nemgel Sherpa, was very knowledgeable and added so much to our enjoyment, as well as being constantly cheerful and helpful, as were all our four porters.

Gentle Walking Bhutan          

One of the best trips we've had

What a beautiful country Bhutan is. The scenery is stunning. The people are so friendly and welcoming. Our guide was excellent. His knowledge of the country and Buddhism was excellent. Our driver drove us well around the endless bends. We were lucky to have blue skies most of time. The accommodation was good although rather cold on occasions. The staff were always welcoming and food mostly good. Our trip was one of the best we’d had. It was a shame we only had 9 days there!

Cultural Cycling Tour of Bhutan          

Stress free travel and homestay highlight

Travel arrangements were stress free despite having to adapt to local public holidays and election restrictions! Accommodation was excellent - the highlight being hospitality at our homestay including a hot stone bath. Cycling was strenuous but with guide and back up vehicles on hand was enjoyable and much better than just being driven from place to place. Bikes were of excellent quality. Bhutan is a lovely peaceful country.

Gentle Walking Nepal          

A superb experience!

Having visited Nepal on a number of occasions before, I wanted to get off the usual trails to get a flavour of how the people lived in villages less visited by tourists and this holiday more than fitted the bill. I was also interested in learning more about Hindu and Buddhist culture and again the itinerary provided well for that. The accomodation was first class as were the knowledge and friendliness of the guides and porters. A superb experience!

Gentle Walking Bhutan          

Beautiful countryside with a great guide

BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE! Great guide - Tshering, was very respectful, patient and informative, plus able to be flexible at times. Driver Karchan was very safe and sensible. There could have been more time to stop and contemplate on walks, which tended to be paced by the fastest walkers, so although guide Tshering said go at your own pace, it wasn't really possible to do so as it would have meant others waiting longer than they would have liked. Fantastic temples and zhongs, well explained.
