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.
Stok Kangri and the Markha Valley Trek
By: Gill Potter, Liverpool, Merseyside
Great crew. The cook was outstanding! Great variety and wonderful cakes. Our leader, Jose was great. Nothing was too much trouble. He took a genuine interest in everyone's health and wellbeing throughout the trek.
I suffered a bout of altitude sickness and a loss of appetite a couple of days into the trek but that didn't stop me from moving on with the rest of the group.
I really enjoyed the stay in Leh before the trek began which coincided with the Ladakh festival. Also the trek through the Marka Valley and a great group of people and excellent leader.
Unfortunately we didn't summit Stok Kangri due to adverse weather conditions. It must have been very difficult for Jose to make the final decision not to attempt the summit and I am sure many in the group were disappointed but I would fully support his decision and in any case it meant that we had an extra day in wonderful Leh before leaving for Delhi!
I have been on several treks/climbs with KE and have always had a great time. Very well organised with good itineraries and excellent leaders and support crews. Excellent trip, thanks.
Alpine Trails and Summits of the Queyras
By: Sara Hornibrook, Edinburgh, UK
Antoine really made the trip for me. It was great he was a French leader and we did not come across any other British tourists the whole week! Stunning views and wonderful scenery.
Trekking across the High Atlas
By: Sharon Jackson, London, UK
Around every corner there was a completely different view... gorgeous scenery. And I loved getting to learn more about the Berber people. Hamid was an excellent guide. He is able to offer great practical support and is very diligent in ensuring everyone's needs are met. What a star!
Southern Zanskar and Phuktal Monastery
By: Morag Sutton, Northwich, UK
Super food, well balanced diet was provided, much thought had obviously been put into the preparation of the meals.
Support crew were absolutely excellent & provided the best service we've ever received.
Amazing scenery for miles. Clear, clear night skies. Not being surrounded by dozens of other trekkers. Wonderful support team. Very welcoming cup of hot lemon/orange brought to us every day by Darwan, even in the pouring rain at 11pm!
Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn Trek
By: John Coupland, Derby, UK
It was useful being able to talk to someone in the office with some experience of the planned trip.
I most enjoyed the weather! Plus the variety of the route, including the more challenging sections such as Sentier de Chamois and the Europaweg. We had a good group of people and excellent guide who all got on well together. All accommodation, hotels and refuges, were excellent. Food provided was varied and always good.
Iceland - Trek the Land of Extremes
By: Dan Foye, USA
Fun trip. I'll probably book a lot of other KE trips in the future. Kristian the guide is a nice guy, does a great job, plus he cooks well. I think that there should be someone to handle the cooking and cleaning so the trip leader and the folks on the trip don't get roped into doing stuff while on vacation.
I enjoyed the surprisingly good weather, nice people on the trip. Good scenery, I particularly liked the last days walk past a bunch of waterfalls. The hike was way easier than I thought, I think I could have done that walk very easily in three days as opposed to much slower pace we did particularly without the sun going down and the well maintained trails, but that gave me plenty of time to take photos. Also the weather was much warmer than i expected, but apparently that was unusual.
The Classic Tour Du Mont Blanc
By: Ian Park, West Yorkshire, UK
The scenery after the bad weather on the first day - which admittedly cannot be organised in advance was stunning! And pretty much all I'd hoped for.
Tour del Gran Paradiso
By: John Pegram, Bedfordshire
Your itinerary is quite correct this is a fantastic walking holiday. The circular walk was well planned with unbelievable views mixed with diverse terrain and wildlife. Julia was above excellent best leader I've ever had.
Trekking Mount Mgoun in Winter
By: Martin Plackett, London, UK
I enjoyed the fine ridge walk to the summit of Mgoun; the freshly baked cake that awaited us when we got back to the Tarkeddit refuge; the quantity and quality of the food throughout. The KE Leader, Tim, did a first class job of looking after the group and was very good company as well. Our guide Mustapha was very good as well.
