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!

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.

Gentle Walking Patagonia in Style          

Amazing holiday

This was an amazing holiday where the photos do not do the expansive landscape justice. There is a feeling of space everywhere, even though the landscape is very varied. Travelling across the Patagonian Steppe is very different from Los Glaciares National Park with Mount Fitzroy dominating the skyline in the north of the park, the huge range of glaciers including Perito Moreno in the south, as well as being up close to enormous icebergs. The Patagonian Eco Domes and Estancia Cristina were great.

Gentle Walking Patagonia in Style          

A wonderful trip

The scenery was stunning, the weather was unusually warm and sunny, the accommodation brilliant - all in all a wonderful trip. The walking was challenging at times and not as gentle as we had imagined it would be. We felt very lucky to be staying at the eco domes and waking up to an amazing view of Mount Fitzroy from our bed. The boat trip to Estancia Christina was a definite highlight as was the time we spent there. Being in that vast landscape with only a few other people was very special.

Gentle Walking Nepal          

Well designed itinerary

The itinerary was really well designed with several centres throughout Nepal and a mixture of culture and walking.

Everest Base Camp in Style          

Exceptional guide

Our Sherpa guide, Kami, was very companionable and loved to laugh. He was also extremely knowlegeable and experienced in so many things including flora and fauna, Nepalese history and politics, photography, mountaineering, Tibet and gave us insight, by his example, of the relevance of Buddhism to daily actions. The trip was massively enhanced by his leadership and empathy for the group members. We also had wonderful weather, were lucky with our internal flights and were always well fed.

Complete Patagonia - Paine & Fitz Roy          

An amazing holiday

This really is an amazing holiday. It involves quite a lot of travelling but it is so worth it. The scenery is absolutely stunning and the walks, though quite challenging, resulted in views to remember for ever. And, best of all, the people I was with made the holiday so enjoyable.

Mount Chomolhari & Lingshi Bhutan          

We had an amazing trip

Bhutan is an incredible country with stunning scenery, amazing culture and the most friendly people you could hope for. The quality of the guides was excellent as was the accommodation, which in our trip, included home stays as well as hotels. The logistics and planning was all done by Mountain Kingdoms and this being very efficient made the whole process effortless. We had an amazing trip, brought back many wonderful memories (and photographs),and would highly recommend Mountain Kingdoms.

Mount Chomolhari & Lingshi Bhutan          

Bhutan is a remarkable country

A complete privilege to spend time in Bhutan. The people, the culture, the landscape and philosophy were truly life enhancing. We would like to pay particular tribute to our guide. His knowledge, experience, attention to detail, sensitivity and concern for our welfare was exceptional. He had so many decisions to make daily, and in our experience he got them all correct. Bhutan is a remarkable country. We feel very lucky.

North to South Vietnam          

A tremendous holiday

We all felt we were offered (and felt we had to eat) far too much food! We much appreciated the quieter days built into the busy itinerary. All-in-all a tremendous holiday and introduction to a fascinating country. Thank you MK!


Claree Valley - Unspoilt mountain scenery

Excellent walking with beautiful, varied and unspoilt mountain scenery. October was a great time to visit with the brilliant autumn colours, and it was very quiet. Antoine Allier, our friendly and knowledgeable guide, was outstanding.

Mount Chomolhari & Lingshi Bhutan          

A real privilege to experience

This was a wonderful trek. The guide and team were excellent. The route was well judged at a pace that suited all our small group. The cultural insights at the start and end of the holiday added an extra dimension. But the highlights were being alone in stunning scenery of the Himalaya, not meeting anyone but local yak herders for days on end. A real privilege to experience.

Complete Patagonia - Paine & Fitz Roy          

Strongly recommended

Great treks taking in most of those classic Patagonian vistas. The tour was well organised, hotels exceeded expectations and the EcoCamp was magnificent. Tour guides were all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Would strongly recommend this trip for reasonably fit walkers.

Complete Patagonia - Paine & Fitz Roy          

Incredible scenery

This trip provides the opportunity to visit one of the most spectacular areas of the world, and see close up how spectacular the mountain ranges, glaciers, lakes and surrounding landscapes are. The scenery is incredible - and at times hard to take in - but I feel privileged to have been taken by expert guides to some of the most stunning landscapes I have ever seen. The treks can be challenging but they are worth the effort, and the welcome you receive at your hotel makes it all worthwhile.

Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes          

Such a well organised trip

Such a well organised trip. Felt safe in the hands of the Mountain Kingdoms representatives in Nepal. They were helpful, friendly and well organised and kept our group well informed. It was a real pleasure having local sherpa guides on the trek - it felt very special to have access to knowledgeable guides who had a real connection to the local community and landscape. They did an excellent job, managing accomodation, food and, more importantly the daily trekking itineary. Great trip

Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes          

Great experience

The scenery is amazing, it has to be seen to be believed, the locals are fantastically warm and welcoming and the overall culture and experience is great. Lots of variety in the food and drink, the accommodation and toilets have significantly improved over the years though it's still quite an adjustment for those who are used to their home comforts. The EBC trail is now heavily used by trekkers, but the route to and from Gokyo is brilliant, much quieter. Overall, very well recommended.

Everest Base Camp in Style          


Our guide, Kami, was not just our guide, he is more like a long lost friend, a teacher, part of the group. His depth of knowledge and infectious passion for just about everything brightens your day, lightens your load and makes the trek more than you ever imagined it could be. The whole team of porters and guides did everything they could to help us enjoy our trek and The Mk team were always on hand to help with any questions we had or arrangements that needed making or changing - exceptional.
