Croatia Coast and Islands
By: Graham & Irene Taggart, Isle of Man, UK
The holiday was everything we expected and more. The country is beautiful and the people very friendly. The scenery is stunning and the diversity makes it very interesting. The standard of accommodation was much better that we initially expected.
Trekking the Ridges and Summits of Bulgaria
By: Philip Hayes, Southampton, UK
The trek was actually better than I expected because of the scale and beauty of the mountains. Each day provided a completely different scene with views in all directions.
Ivo was an excellent trek leader with a good pace. Excellent english and clear in communication; he discussed options where neccessary but always decisive in his leading.
Julian Alps Lakes and Mountains
By: Sarah Christenson-Jones, Netherlands
This was my first KE trip and if this is the template for any of your other trips I would most certainly be interested in doing another with KE. Most enjoyed - The pace, flexibility and organisation.
Luxury Machu Picchu Trek
By: Edith Allan, Dundee, UK
This was true luxury trekking! After some longer days, it was a real treat to be greeted with hot towels and cocoa tea. (Not to mention outdoor hot tubs at three of the four lodges where we could observe the southern skies). The lodges were of a very high standard and fitted perfectly in the remote settings.
Our support team were most attentive and our cook prepared excellent meals both at the lodges and lunch stops. . The walking was on good trails with only one fairly long, day but being served a hot,three course lunch on the trail made it a lot easier. ( it was snowing on the high pass, but lunch was served under canvas which was most appreciated!)
Most enjoyed - Seeing Machu Picchu for the first time, from a vantage point few tourists see, was quite special!
Italian High Level Trek
By: James Macnab, Bolton
Very helpful info in the dossier and KE staff helped select the trip that best met my aims. This was a trip in varied terrain, mainly at high altitude. Food in high level huts was only average (but plentiful) but we only expect plain food there. Accommodation was generally very good, especially in the Italian huts. The pace of the trip was very good - moderate pace and steady progress. Excellent guiding and leadership from both Paul and Bruce. Both were very ready to answer questions regarding technique, diffficulty or route and deal with any concerns. Both happy to offer help where required - but fortunately did not happen often.
I achieved my aim - first ascent of 4000m peaks and learned basics of alpine techniques. A great experience. The Italian huts have a really good atmosphere and are very comfortable.
Gran Paradiso Summits - Trek the Alps of Italy
By: Kay Simmonite, Yorkshire, UK
The route was very well planned out and the length of days arranged well to allow for resting. The trip went through a range of landscapes and scenery and gave a really good alpine experience which tested skills on all types of terrain (scree/boulder fields/valley walks/glaciers/snow slopes/via ferrata etc) - exellent!
The scenery was amazing and I loved the mountain huts. Staying in mountain huts is a major part of the experience and the accomodation on this trip was great!
The holiday was brilliant. I have no complaints at all!
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.
Bernese Oberland Haute Route - West
By: Peter Curran, Guilford, UK
A wonderful experience: a well structured itinerary with challenging peaks almost every day, tough but manageable.
The challenge of reaching summits almost every day and of travelling on the ice. Also, the good teamwork that built up in the group as the week progressed, and the excellent leadership by guide Kathy.
Kathy was great, listened to group, made good decisions, approachable and helpful, obviously confident and highly skilled in the mountains.
One Week Haute Route - Mont Blanc to Matterhorn
By: Daniel Neild, Coventry, UK
Most enjoyed - Being on the glaciers for the first time with crampons. Different climbing via ferratas and rocks ( a bit of everything).
Paul was a great guide with lots of knowledge and very experienced. Felt safe all the way.
Classic Haute Route - High Alpine Trekking
By: Rene Dee, East Sussex, UK
I most enjoyed learning new skills, finding a new and demanding challenge, finding fellow travelers who were comparable in experience and fitness and discovering alpine huts in crazy places. I can't speak too highly of Kathy Murphy. She was a leader who inspired us to listen to her intently and follow her unconditionally. Her broad experience in the Alps and other mountains shone through, yet she was not pompous nor arrogant as a result of this. She was focused, calm and considerate of our needs at all times and gave us regular sound advice that got us through this extraordinary trek without incident or problems. I found the level of professionalism and support from your organisation excellent and worthy of my repeat business.
