Your latest Trek & Walk reviews
Highlights of Northern Vietnam
By: Lizzie Twigger, London, UK
Very helpful input from your office staff early on when we were trying to decide on our holiday. Very supportive throughout.
All the support crew wwere excellent. the cook in the mountains was superb. Loved the homestays. Overnight train great fun. Time in the mountains very special.
Thanh (the guide) was key to our enjoyment, we cannot praise him highly enough, organised, reliable and great company.
Viva Gran Canaria
By: David Olive, Taunton, Somerset, UK
This was my first walking holiday with a group and enjoyed every minute of it.The balance of walking and free time was just right.
The variety of the locations enabled you to get a good feel of the island. Great views up in the mountains. The pace of the day suited me just fine.
Jordan's Dana to Petra Trek
By: Kari Cowen, Bedford
Nader was a fantastic guide, sharing with us information about everyday life in Jordan and bring to life the historical sites of Petra with his extensive archeological knowledge. His passion for Jordan brought to life a country I knew very little about and his great sense of Humour was a joy.
After only a week due to the wealth of information & knowledge that Nader shared with us I left having enjoyed a great trek whilst learning about both present day Jordan and the history of Jordan
The trekking was great in extremely varied landscapes but also due to Nader our guide's willingness to passionately share so much about Jordan an appreciation of present day Jordan and its history.
Trekking Mount Toubkal in Winter
By: Sara Taylor, Stockport, UK
I don't usually complete feedback sheets (even if I have had a great time) as I find them time consuming and never manage to get round to it! However on this occasion I felt that I would make the effort as I can honestly say I can find nothing to complain about! I have had a thoroughly enjoyable experience in an amazing country in the company of a really great bunch of people. Thank you!
I particularly enjoyed all of the holiday! Couldn't find fault with any of it. The hotel was in a perfect location. We stayed extra days at the start and end of our trip and found the rooms to be very basic but clean/adequate for the cost. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Houcein was our local guide and he was brilliant. Very professional, helpful and experienced. Our KE Leader, Tom, was fantastic, very professional, great sense of humour and nothing was too much trouble. He made the whole experience even more enjoyable and has set a very high standard for any future KE trips we decide to do.
The Snowman Trek
By: Julie Violet, London
Namgay was excellent and he has a great sense of humour which is really important.
The thermarests provided were great, and meant that I slept really well. Normally I don't sleep well when camping but this time I did.
Had a great trip!
Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek via the French Pass
By: Alex Vogler, United States
Val is a great trip leader, with lots of knowledge of the Nepalese people. I like the fact that this trip was not overly commercialized. The views and scale of the mountains we saw was impressive. The day over the french pass is one of the best days of hiking I've ever had. Another great day was the walk through the forest to Chartare.
Peaks and Valleys of Jebel Sirwa
By: Geoff Brunskill, Cumbria, UK
A well paced short trek. Most enjoyed the varied scenic contrasts between arid and fertile landscapes
Edge of Sahara Trek
By: Stefanie Lauer, Scotland, UK
First time traveller with KE and VERY impressed.
Hassan (the guide) is a total legend!!! Especially when he was hammering new pegs into the hard ground when the wind was about to pick up each and every tent and blow it towards Algeria... Hard worker, our comfort and enjoyment was always guaranteed. The support crew was fantastic. I don't have sufficient words to express the outstanding customer service experienced with Aventure Berbere!
Thanks for pointing out the waterproofs - we actually needed them! Spot on!
Angel Falls and trekking to the Lost World
By: Paul Willetts, Bristol
I can't speak highly enough of Bennette and also the support crew for the trek. He was kind, knowledgeable and very quickly appreciated the needs/pace of our group. His local knowledge for the Roraima/Canaima part of the trip was invaluable and made everything run smoothly. On the trek itself, all the porters were very helpful and the food was as good as you would find in most restauarants.
I didn't really have any expectations of this holiday, but it was fantastic - a great blend of trekking, sightseeing and the last couple of days on Los Roques was magical.
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.
