Trekking Guatemalas Magnificent Seven
By: Maureen O'Sullivan, Dublin, Ireland
Superb holiday - sorry it had to come to an end, but I loved Guatemala and all I experienced there andn it exceeded my expectations. This was a fantastic, absolutely fantastic holiday - gorgeous scenery, lovely people, great leaders and good varied food, beautiful climate and excellent vistas. the pace was pretty quick and, in retrospect, a bit more down-time in Antigua and at lake Atitlan would have been lovely, but there was a lot of trekking to complete and we did it all, which was also great! The team of four Juan, Oscar, Lisa and Nico were a lovely group - very easy-going and yet on the ball in terms of keeping the show rolling smoothly. Despite the earthquake while we were there, we didn't have to cancel any aspect of the trip and this undoubtedly because the folks, especially Juan were able to rearrange things with many behind the scenes efforts. the bus drivers were excellent and skillfully got us from A to B without fail even across some challenging terrain.
Need more emphasis on recommmended warm gear to bring - this should be on the essential list - I was cold in my tent at night and this need not have been the case - the extremes in temperature should be emphasised - probably 30oC variation from noon heat to night-time lows. This would have helped in planning the packing.

Rob and his crew were excellent , extremely knowledgable about the area and very attentive to the clients. they were also very friendly and helpful.
Most enjoyed - The variety of the trip trekking and cultural interests, variety of different locations.
Bernese Oberland Haute Route - East
By: David Gallagher, London, UK
A beautifully conceived and executed route by Kathy Murphy, the trip leader. Only KE do this route and for this reason there was hardly anyone else on it. Thanks for a well organised and beautifully led trip.
Patagonia Paine Circuit
By: Ros Kirkman, Edinburgh, Scotland
The whole holiday was a wonderful experience in this stunning part of the world. It was an eye opener in terms of how national parks should be cared for, with care of the wild land and wild life top priority - rather a contrast to the way national parks are treated in the UK. The stunning scenery and wildlife, the friendly, efficient and knowledgeable guides, the extremely comfortable ecocamp. Having your tent already put up for you when you arrive! All the local transport being comfortable and punctual. Trekking in the quieter northern sector was particularly pleasant.
Madeira Walking Week
By: Judith Thorp, Derbyshire, UK
Victor made this experience very easy and comfortable for me. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about his island and answered innumerable questions on a daily basis. Nothing was left to chance. As a trip leader he is superb.
I enjoyed being part of the group and the villages and small towns we stayed in were interesting. The Atlantic swell and rock pools in Paul do Mar were exhilirating.I particularly enjoyed the walks following the lavadas (without the steep descents!!!)
The Ultimate Tour Du Mont Blanc
By: James Wild, Wrexham
A great tour taking us to places not many others even think about going! Our guide Judith could not have done more. Excellent at all times. KE Leader Keith Robson is the best leader I have been with either with K.E. or other companies.
The Classic Tour Du Mont Blanc
By: Jean Savage, Kendal, Cumbria
We were a small group which almost immediately referred to itself as 'the team'. We worked hard but it felt quite relaxed. A very enjoyable trip on a classic walk.
Emily Andrew was an excellent leader and being resident in Chamonix we benefited from her additional local knowledge. She inspired confidence in the group and left us with a happy feeling of success as we ticked off the higher route variations ..and she knew where the best cakes were to be found. One of the best leaders I've had.
Better food and accommodation than expected, felt almost luxurious after many years of camping!
Best of the Tour du Mont Blanc Trek
By: Armorel Young, Nottingham, UK
I rate this as one of the most enjoyable holidays I have ever had.
Most enjoyed - The walking (especially the aspects that were a bit more challenging than what I am used to at home); the scenery; the small group size; the way the group "gelled".
The company was warmly recommended by friends.
High Tatras Trekking - The Carpathian Mountains
By: anonymous, Devon
I really enjoyed the trip, thank you. I thought the mountain huts were really much better than I was prepared for, especially the roztoka hut, brilliant food. It was lovely to spend 2 days there instead of one and be able to leave the bags. A minor thing is the tour of Krakow - it was a shame to spend so long - probably getting on for 45 minutes - walking from the hotel through rather nondescript industrial areas to the centre instead of getting the very easy and quick tram and having more time to actually spend walking round Krakow.
The mountain huts were brilliant. The walkng itself was wonderful, beautiful surroundings and wandering around Krakow was super.
Inca Trail and Machu Picchu
By: Ron Gibson, Angus, Scotland
KE staff were excellent and gave additional advise as needed. 100% satisfaction.
All Hotels used were excellent and friedly staff on hand to answer all questions. Food quality was of a very high standard and much more than I expected. I cannot speak more highly of our support crew giude and Cook. the cleanliness and hygene was top quility and all I can say is I have had worse food in some top class restaurants.
Our tour guide was of the highest standard. He was a great leader and knew his stuff well and was very attentive to our needs. He was also very knowwledgeable about his history and knowledge of the Inca.
