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.

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.

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.
