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.

Gentle Walking Islands of Croatia          

Wonderful guide in Croatia

Our guide was wonderful. He was informative, and funny, and he helped me to dive on the day. I would hike with him again. BUT... Gentle Walking I would dispute. The altitude and up and down was not an issue, nor were the distances - the loose rocks on the trails made gentle walking quite hard walking.

Lingshi Laya Trek Bhutan          

Lingshi Laya - A fantastic trek

A fantastic trek in a beautiful and fascinating country with a unique culture. It was a tough trek but really well organised and the scenery was breathtaking. Our guide Tschering and the support staff were amazing, always helpful, cheerful and friendly and the quality of food was excellent despite the difficult conditions. The Bhutanese people could not have been warmer and more welcoming. A really wonderful holiday.

Manaslu Circuit          

Beautiful Manaslu

The most beautiful place I have ever seen.

A trip that had it all!

A full-on trip that had it all - the key Silk Road sites, modern Tashkent and mountain walking in sun, torrential rain and snow! The sightseeing is very structured with a lot of information provided by the guides. The walking, weather aside, is relatively straightforward and not too strenuous, although we were unable to climb Little Chimgan due to the adverse weather conditions.

Silk Road to Samarkand          

Excellent holiday on the Silk Road

Overall the holiday was excellent, so much interesting history. Travelling between cities was very comfortable, both by train and road although occasionally the road surfaces were bumpy. The Uzbek people are so warm and welcoming, delighted to see visitors and eager to chat and get to know about you. We always felt safe exploring on our own. The arts and crafts are beautiful and we purchased pottery, textiles and paintings to remind us of our time in Uzbekistan.

Dana Trek to Petra          

A proper Jordan adventure

The Dana Trek to Petra was a proper Jordan adventure. Our guide, who was a Bedouin himself, did everything he could to make us embrace his culture and way of living. Every day was a new discovery of food and scenery, ending in Petra which was incredible.

Druk Path Trek          

An unforgettable experience

An unforgettable experience on many levels that exceeded already high expectations. The cultural history is fascinating, monasteries and dzongs providing exquisite settings in which to learn about this unique country. The trek was extraordinary, taking us through forests humming with cicadas, up rivers, along ridges with views of the verdant valleys far below, boulders, lakes, a yak. All enhanced by our truly exceptional guide, Ugyen and his crew. So grateful to have made this trip.

Mount Chomolhari & Lingshi Bhutan          

Mount Chomolhari, Bhutan

This was a perfect short, first family trek for us. Getting away for a week and walking with my teenage sons, with no devices and no external pressures, was wonderful. The Mountain Festival gave us a taste of Bhutanese culture, including their focus on conservation and sustainability. The day walk to Tsho Phu lakes above Jangothang was one of the most beautiful I've ever done, and had some fantastic wildlife too. Taktsang was the perfect finale, and again had good wildlife. Sherab was a great leader.

Silk Road to Samarkand          

Very good guide

The food was very tasty and plentiful. The guide was very good. She knew her stuff and was a mine of information. A very kind and thoughtful lady.

Druk Path Trek          

Loved Bhutan

I loved Bhutan - everything about it. Our guide, Ugyen was really excellent. The hotels were all good quality. The trek was good - the views and food were suberb. We enjoyed our second visit to Nepal - the Dwarika's hotel (out of Kathmandu) and our meal at the Dwarika's in Kathmandu on our extension.

Druk Path Trek          

Not disappointed!

Bhutan only opened post-covid a week before our trip and we had waited over 2 years to be able to go so our expectations were very high and we were not disappointed. Amazing scenery and sights with the most hospitable people you're ever likely to meet. Our guide was superb and all the camp crew were great. The Druk Path trek may be a short trek but the altitude makes it more challenging as most of it is over 3500m, we were well looked after and the food was amazing on the camp.

Gentle Walking Islands of Croatia          

Relaxing and enjoyable

We loved the Croatian scenery, the itinerary, the variety of walks ranging from city walks in Split and Dubrovnik to walking in the national park in Mljet and ‘lost villages’ in Hvar, Travelling by ferries made it a different, relaxing and enjoyable experience. Having a local and enthusiastic leader contributed to the enjoyment of the holiday.
