High Tatras Trekking - The Carpathian Mountains
By: anonymous, Devon
I really enjoyed the trip, thank you. I thought the mountain huts were really much better than I was prepared for, especially the roztoka hut, brilliant food. It was lovely to spend 2 days there instead of one and be able to leave the bags. A minor thing is the tour of Krakow - it was a shame to spend so long - probably getting on for 45 minutes - walking from the hotel through rather nondescript industrial areas to the centre instead of getting the very easy and quick tram and having more time to actually spend walking round Krakow.
The mountain huts were brilliant. The walkng itself was wonderful, beautiful surroundings and wandering around Krakow was super.
Vesuvius, Pompei & the Amalfi Coast
By: Lindsey Blackwell, Bedford, UK
We only booked this holiday a week & a half in advance and we were pleased with the efficiency at such short notice.
This was our first experience of not only a KE holiday, but a group holiday. We enjoyed the experience and will definately be looking at this type of holiday again.
We would really like to praise both of the guides that were attached to our group on this holiday - nothing was ever too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure we were having a good time. Their vast local knowledge gave a real insight into the areas we visited.
Corsica Walking Week
By: Martin Badley, Carnforth, Lancashire
I most enjoyed the scenery in Corsica. Our local guide, Denis Allemand, was particularly knowledgable in many aspects and I learnt much from him. Also enjoyed meeting, and getting to know the other members on the trip.
Corsica Haute Route - Trek the Whole GR20
By: Ken Capewell, Edinburgh, Scotland
The route is very varied (woodland, grassy plains, rocky ridges sometimes all in the same day) and that made it special. I like scrambling so really enjoyed the rocky/scrambly parts. We were able to take the Alpine variants (I think) on all occasions that there was a choice - it was great staying high in the mountains. The people - one usually meets a good crowd on these treks but this group was a particularly good team & great company. Denis set the tone and was a really good leader.
Atlantic Camel Caravan - Coastal Trek
By: Tim Seel, West Yorkshire, UK
Could not fault the support crew. Very friendly and helpful. Food was superb. The leader was excellent. Felt like trekking with friends.
I want to stress again just how impressed we were with the professional in-country team. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I congratulate you on selecting this company to work with. They really were excellent in every way. We consider Hamid a friend now and will keep in touch with him.
I don't think there is anything that could have made this holiday better.It was our perfect trip!
Ecuador`s Avenue of the Volcanoes Trek
By: Catriona Anderson, Kingussie, Scotland
Gosh, 'excellent' is becoming boring! I had been a bit concerned beforehand because of the altitude involved (over 5,000m) although I had been this high before without problems. However, the acclimatisation programme was subtle but excellent and I was well within my comfort zone. I loved Ecuador - despite the rather Scottish weather - and was impressed that you'd managed to arrange for Tungurahua to erupt impressively at the end of the trip!
As usual the mix of other people on the trip was excellent and we all got on well, adding to the experience.
I loved the country and particularly the variety of habitats and wildlife on offer. It was good to have a leader who was knowledgeable on plants and didn't mind stopping to look and answer questions. We also saw two condors! I also enjoyed the chocolate and the rum and raisin ice cream!
This was my seventh trip with KE and won't be my last.
Toubkal Weekend - The Ultimate Morocco Short Break
By: Marcus Crompton, Cheshire, UK
I thoroughly enjoyed this short trek - it packs as much as possible into the time available: and Morocco is an excellent (and very different) destination.
The support crew (muleteers) were excellent and couldn't have done more for us both in their general help and in preparing some excellent food.
I'm a happy camper now after seven consecutive years of great holidays with KE. I recommend you everywhere!
Across the Julian Alps to Triglav
By: Fiona Gardner, Private Group, Renfrewshire, Scotland
Our guide was great, he took care of everything for us from translating to looking after us throughout the days. Top guide. Gave us lots of sight seeing and restaurant recommendations for after the hike also.
I loved everything about this trip. We were well looked after in every hut, the food was good, and everyone was really friendly. The terrain is amazing! It's very different to Scotland and every day was something different and interesting.
Loved this holiday. One happy person. Great trip all round, would to it again in a heart beat!
Trekking the Ridges and Summits of Bulgaria
By: Tom Good, London
Great places to stay, also the night in the mountain hut was a great addition, and was something to look forward to. It was really nice to see how friendly Ivo was with the hotel owners, it made the whole experience seem more personal. The places chosen to stay were small and 'homely' enough to get our small group very well acquainted. The 'support crew' was great and friendly, couldnt have asked for more.
Very happy, had a great experience and enjoyed the sites. There was enough trekking time to feel like we had achieved a lot in a week, as well as seeing a broad range of the Bulgarian countryside. The rest places and times were well suited and the group managed to really get along. Out leader Ivo in particular did a great job.
Reunion - Paradise Island Trekking
By: Colin Buckle, Sutton Coldfield
Thank you for organising a really fantastic holiday! Fred, the guide was excellent. The hotels, gites and refuges were all good, especially Hellbourg. The trek itinerary and the places visited was/were very good. I cannot recommend the helicopter flight too highly. It was really amazing!
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!
