Immersive tour of a fascinating place

Colours of Indiawhat a good description of the holiday that weve just had. And not just colours, but sounds and tastes. I had never been to Gujarat, and what a fascinating place it turned out to be. My interest in joining a tour focusing on textiles was not in making things, as thats not my forte, but in enjoying beautiful things and the workmanship and skills that go into creating them. And the tour exceeded my expectations, with a knowledgable, passionate, energetic and thoughtful leader who was on hand to deal with any problems that arose, an itinerary that could be adjusted to suit prevailing circumstances, an excellent local guide, Pravin Danghera, who gave us insights into many aspects of Gujarati life and helped with everything from menu choices (the food was delicious) to strange beeps in the hotel room, and a calm, careful driver who kept us safe. The vibrant colours and the smiling, friendly local people we met will stay with meas will of course the glorious things that I boughtadded to which are the unforgettable landscapes, the birds, the animals encountered on the road and in the markets, and the wonderful local music played by such talented musicians. The tour was relaxed and never rushed, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the places we visited. There was only one place where we would have liked to linger longer, Rann Riders, had time permitted, but we understood the limitations. Well done, Sue Lawty, and everyone alongside you who made this happen. I hadnt heard of Mountain Kingdoms before this trip but will certainly be keeping an eye on future opportunities.

Gujarat - you can't not go!

If you love fabrics or sewing you will find heaven in Gujarat. You have the chance to watch fabric being made from scratch; spun, dyed, printed, woven, embroidered and finally worn. Throw the many wonders of India into the mix - exotic food, amazing temples and mosques or tranquil bird watching - and you cant not go!'

Absolutely fantastic trip to India

Absolutely fantastic trip with a superb guide Suraya (apologies if spelt incorrectly!) who had bottomless historical knowledge, he also took charge of a "tip kitty" which took any stress off us! The variety of accommodation was brilliant especially enjoyed the Korta Escape which was a rural farm and Castle Bijaipur Hotel where we were included in the family's Diwali Celebrations. We did an extension to Jim Corbett's Retreat which was superb and we saw a real, live, wild tiger!!

Couldn't fault it!

This was a great trip, the country is beautiful and the trip took in a lot of the diversity between the areas visited. We were very pleased with the itinerary which had obviously been well thought out and the accommodation wherever we stayed was of a good standard. We were with a group of 10 lovely, friendly people but one of the highlights of the trip was the group leader, Rey. Rey really made our trip with his knowledge, attitude and sense of fun, he went above and beyond on many occasions.

Exquisite scenery

We loved finding out more about the culture. We met some lovely local families. The scenery was exquisite.

Great memories

I had wanted to go trekking in Nepal for at least thirty years. As the trek progressed I knew I had made the right choice. Challenging, incredible scenery, three high passes, nice lodges, Everest basecamp and some quieter areas. Purna and his assistant guides worked tirelessly in looking after us with warmth and good humour. I will not forget the last night of the trek in Lukla where we all got up and danced with Purna, the assistant guides and porters to a catchy Nepali tune. Great memories.

Wonderful trek in Atlas mountains

For various, unpredictable reasons I ended up going on this trek alone. However, I still had an excellent, English speaking guide, a wonderful cook, 2 muleteers and 2 mules all looking after me! I was very well looked after and had a great time. The food was fantastic, especially considering the basic cooking arrangements. The terrain is very dry and arid but the scenery is quite striking and the night sky is wonderful. Don't expect anything other than very basic (squat toilet) or non-existent toilet facilities and you do have to be careful with water hygiene. I had no problems and I was provided with hot water and liquid soap at every meal time and filtered all my drinking water. All in all a great trek that was very well organised and enjoyable.

Friends on a shared adventure

This was once again a very well organised Trek from Mountain Kingdoms. The scenery was all we hoped for as we ascended the Langtang Valley. Our small group gelled immediately into a group of friends on a shared adventure. Our thanks must go to our trek Leader Durga, his assistant Ram and the porters who ensured we thoroughly enjoyed our 15 days of walking.

First ever trek - exceeded expectations

The trek far exceeded my expectations. It is also the first trek that i have ever done. The scenery is just out of this world. Whilst the 3 passes themselves are hard work, with adequate preparation they are fully achievable. The rewards are incredible vistas, and being away from the traditional circuit. The acclimatization built into the route was great, and so I would fully endorse the route direction (clockwise) as well as the trek duration. Bravo to the guides and porters.

No praise too high!

We had a wonderful holiday. We saw a lot of the country and a considerable amount of wildlife. The hotels were all comfortable and the food was good. There was quite a lot of travel in a small bus. This was inevitable if we wanted to see as much of the country as we did. The bus was comfortable and the driver was good. Our guide was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Costa Rica. He was happy to accommodate our wishes to get up early to go bird watching. No praise too high.

Friendly people

All the Japanese people were unfailingly friendly, helpful and polite.

It really was the trip of a lifetime

The scenery and nature of Patagonia plus the helpfulness of all the people we met made the holiday so special for us. All the flights and travel arrangements worked as planned. The accommodation and food were first class and not forgetting the Argentinian steaks and wine! The Estancia Cristina has the top billing from us. Together with the rest of our itinerary it was really a trip of a lifetime. Thanks to Mountain Kingdoms for all the arrangements, you were a pleasure to deal with.

Wildlife paradise with a great guide

There are regular guides, and then, there's Rey, our highly qualified naturalist guide, who always spotted in a tree, long before any of our group, 'anything that looks unusual or shouldn't be there' (his words). Monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and particularly birds, he found them all for us, and, with his 'scope and tripod set up, we could view, and photograph or video via our phones, all the wonderful creatures that make Costa Rica a wildlife paradise. We enjoyed walks in the volcanic areas too.

Comprehensive experience of Japan

We enjoyed the variety and comprehensive experience of Japan, it's history and culture.

Loved Bhutan

We loved the Bhutan experience: the people, the scenery, the trekking, the culture.

The perfect blend

A wonderful holiday. It was a perfect blend of tour and trek, culture and countryside.

Fantastic trek to Everest

Well planned, ample time for acclimitisation. The 3 guides were fantastic especially Kami who looked after us so well, knew so much and was very entertaining, he was also expert on medical matters and provided treatment. He was always supportive and reassuring and Poomba and Lakbar couldn't have been more helpful (carrying my day pack when I had flu). The lodges were comfortable with great staff. Yes the teahouses at higher altitudes were primitive but they are the only option as it is so remote.

Bhutan - a unique experience

I wouldnt call the trip a holiday - I think its best described as a unique experience - seeing a little bit of Bhutan's wonderful life and how structured their country is. Certain elements of the trip will live with us forever.

Manaslu Circuit - Gorgeous, beautiful and challenging!

The Manaslu Circuit trek was, in short, just fantastic. Gorgeous! Beautiful! Challenging! The support team really made the trip. The lead guide, Santosh, provided us with unexpected opportunities to learn about the local culture. All of the guides (Santosh, Man, Nam Kha, and Suresh) were incredibly attentive and supportive. They were immediately "on it" if they noticed someone needing assistance. Not to be forgotten, the porters were always cheerful and were very much appreciated.

Wonderful introduction to the Annapurnas

A wonderful introduction to the beautiful Annapurna range and a fascinating insight into the village life of the Gurung people. The lodges are superbly situated and the solar-powered hot showers and cuddly hot water bottles ensure a good night's sleep. For those new to trekking in Nepal though, the stone steps up and down the hillsides are not to be under-estimated!
