Jordan Highlights Tour
By: Tracy Steelhammer, San Francisco
I want to emphasize that I was delighted by this trip. The choice of places to visit and the amount of time to spend at them was nearly perfect.
I loved this trip. You struck an excellent balance between how many places to visit and how long to visit them. The amount of activity was very good, in the middle between sedentary and strenuous. Jordan is very beautiful and hospitable. I sincerely hope you can invent more trips like this in other parts of the world.
The jeep ride and walks in Wadi Rum probably were my favorites. Petra is more spectacular than its photos and the walk into it from Little Petra was wonderful. Floating in the Dead Sea is pretty silly but it was fun, so I'm glad we did it.
I'm a happy veteran of several KE trips.

Amazing holiday. Really enjoyed it. Would certainly recommend it to others.I most enjoyed the scrambling, beautiful scenery, camp experience and the fine company.
Jordan's Dana to Petra Trek
By: Jon Lieb, California, USA
Yousef is an excellent guide. Give him a raise! Very pleasant to be around and knowledgable.
This trip went very smoothly. Your dossier described it well. I'll be doing many more trips with you!
Walk to Freedom across the Pyrenees
By: Debbie Wagner, Surrey
The trip leader made the experience most entertaining. His knowledge of the terrain and weather conditions was impeccable and his larger than life personality was incomparable. His great leadership skills were supported very professionally by Matt Arnold his assistant. Their enthusiasm and local knowledge made the trip unforgettable.
An experience of a life-time with much laughter, challenging exercise with outstanding natural beauty. The group dynamic was perfect as we all seemed to be of similar mind set and sense of humour. A great time was had by all.
Traverse of the Jotunheimen of Norway
By: Judy Rissell, VA, United States
I enjoyed the stunning scenery and the long days hiking. Really enjoyed myself, it was a challenge for me and would recommend this to anyone.
Traverse of the Picos de Europa
By: Colin Fenn, Oxfordshire, UK
This was my first ever guided trek, in 40 years of regularly working and walking in the Alps on an independent basis. I enjoyed and benefited from the guiding enormously, it being an area new to me. It's given me a taste for guided treks in new areas, so who knows.
The KE trip was the only one I found that offered a challenging traverse of the Picos; others offered less-challenging centre-based trips, by and large.
Oman Walks and Wadis
By: Hugh Rothero, West Midlands, UK
This was my 5th trip to Oman with Rob, but he is still as enthusiastic as ever, especially with regard to the environment, history, culture and nature.
Most enjoyed - Being back in the country & seeing the changes (construction) the scenery, forts, food - Seeing wildlife, birds, animals, insects including a scorpion.
In the Avenue of the Volcanoes
By: Michele McCoy, USA
Carlos was ideal. His presence as our trip leader was exceptional. I learned quite a bit about all facets of Ecuador. He was excellent at keeping our group engaged and during some tougher treks motivated. As our group commented, the best any of the group had ever had. Hope all other KE groups have the opportunity to have Carlos as their trip leader.
Ideal holiday for me. Appropriate in terms of trekking effort, lovely fellow travelers, and interesting culture/geography. We saw a volcano erupt while in Banos (from a safe distance), tried local food (guinea pig), had excellent trekking days with great views and enjoyed visiting towns like Otavalo.
Choquequirao to Machu Picchu Trek
By: Wendy Ovendon, Australia
Best two leaders ever - fantastic! I LOVED IT. Excellent health and fitness. Just think grading of trek should be one or two notches harder. Everything was first class and 5 star - the leaders, the crew, all the camping equipment and the food. The remoteness of the trek... I did not want to do the Inca Trail with thousands of people. It was excellent not to see other trekkers for days on end. Got a real feel for the individual communities in Peru. Locations of all the campsites were absolutely stunning!
This Surpassed expectations as the standards were first class - 5 star all the way. The trek was harder than anticipated, from what I understood of KEs grading system. Based on previous KE treks I have done with same grading, this was much harder.
The Ultimate Tour Du Mont Blanc
By: Raymond Bainbridge, Highland
Great experience all round. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Our leader, Keith Robson, was first class. Brilliant leader who gave full respect to all clients and varying level of abilities. Hugely knowledgeable. Tireless in his attention to us and all carried out with a sense of humour.
Design of route was well thought out. Mixture of huts/hostels/hotels just right. Scenery was magnificent. Pity KE couldn't control the weather on last 3 days... Description of tour as "Ultimate" lived up to name.
