Albania's Accursed Mountains
By: Gwendoline Buchan, London
We were all delighted to be shown around Albania by Armand (local leader) as he clearly loves the place and knows a great deal about its history -political, social and religious, as well as a knowledge of the environment and way of life. It was perfectly lovely to go over the pass from Theti to Valbona because of the shade from the beech forest and the breeze from being higher up.
Montenegro - Black Pearl of the Balkans
By: Michael Tait, Loughborough
This trip is a great introduction to the variety that Montenegro has to offer.
Italian High Level Trek
By: A R Oldham, Ludlow, England
Kathy Murphy (head guide), an excellent professional. A special thanks to Murray Hamilton for his calm and reassuring professionalism also. What I most enjoyed? Being amongst the high hills and the descent down the Grenz Gletcher was particularly spectacular. Also the final days walk was extraordinary in the amount and variety of Alpine flowers that we passed along the way, a great many, never seen before by ourselves and from a gardeners point of view. A great itinerary, and stunning situations.
Dolomites Via Ferrata
By: Albert Donato, Franconia, USA
This was without a doubt one of my favorite holidays! I really enjoyed all of the Via Ferrata. The scenery was as diverse as anything I have ever seen.
I cannot say enough good things about our French guide. I have never met a man with so much energy and enthusiasm for the mountains especially somebody who is 63 years old! His 45 years of experience is unsurpassed to any of my other guides. He was constantly making sure our safety was the number one priority on the trip, especially on the rainy days. He could not have done more to make this trip a memorable one for me.
I travelled with a good group of people and a great guide. I have memories that will last a lifetime!
Luxury Machu Picchu Trek
By: Chris Allan, Dundee, Scotland
The lodges and their staff were superb. The food was remarkable considering remoteness. The hotel in Cusco was particularly good - quiet and classy.
Our guides Jairo and Danny were superb. Jairo was extremely professional as was Danny in a less serious sort of way. They were both very knowledgeable about plants, etc. I particularly enjoyed the transition from high terrain to cloud forest. Machu Picchu very impressive and interesting.
Walking in the Balkan Borderlands
By: Carolin Mogler, Germany
This trip contained the perfect mixture of walking, relaxing and some sightseeing. The staff were very experienced, friendly and helpful, especially the guides from Montenegro and Albania.
High Tatras Trekking - The Carpathian Mountains
By: Roger Cole, Leicestershire, UK
Have been on many trips with KE and other companies but have never found "an Interesting Guide" such as Peter Kaminski who was absolutely "brilliant". Not only did he look after everybody (13 on the trip) but he got us to every place on time. He would tell us each day how we had done using a GPS for kms, altitude, etc. Then he would tell us next day when we would get up passing through each stage and lunch at right time, "incredible".
Macedonia - Off The Beaten Track
By: Lesley Goodlet, London, UK
Lovely trekking in flower strewn hillsides and devoid of hordes of tourists. Bliss!
One-week Mount Toubkal Trek
By: Patrick Craven, York, UK
The pace of the trip was perfect, the guide Hassan intuitively read the groups pace and kept it constant throughout. His timings were incredibly accurate.
Hassan was massively knowledgeable not only about his own back yard (being the Altas mountains) but also general Moroccan culture and politics and even how to setup one of the group members mobile phone configuration! A good all round leader and Berber ambassador.
Trekking Mount Toubkal in Winter
By: David Kelley, Plymouth, UK
A great trip, well organised and pitched at the right level for an intro to winter walking, I would definitely recommend this trip to friends. It was a great holiday, well paced and structured.
I most enjoyed the extra days spent around Imlil, mixing with local life, and the relaxed acclimatisation treks. Our guide was always cheerful, very approachable, full of advice and inspiration to make further trips.
Due to demand new dates added on our White Mountains of Crete holiday, and our Guatemala's Magnificent Seven. Don't miss out book now!
