Sri Lanka Highlights Tour
By: Erica Hutchby, Heathfield, UK
I really enjoyed this trip and would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Sri Lanka. The birdlife was certainly the highlight for me. There was a good balance of culture and wildlife. The pace of the days was about right too.
Our guide, Nuyam, was extremely helpful and accommodating to our interests. His cultural knowledge was excellent. He was also very keen to show us all the wildlife habitats and without him we would not have seen so many birds. Nuyam was also an excellent and careful driver and must have been very tired at the end of each long trip but never complained.
KE office staff were always helpful and if there was a query that they did not immediately know the answer too were able to find out and get back to me.

By: Janet Harris, Chelmsford, UK
Seeing the gorillas and wildlife on safari were easily the highlight. I came away with some fantastic memories and great pictures.
The Ultimate Bhutan Tour
By: Peter Mountford, West Midlands, UK
Our guide Yeshi was superb, He had a very good historical knowledge, spoke vet good English and had a great sense of humour, I am writing to his office manager in Thimpu to this effect.
The country. It is beautiful and the scenery spectacular. The people are lovely and tourism hasn't yet spoilt the country as has been the case in many other destinations. The efficient service provided by KE and it's staff.
Your company was recommended to us by a friend. As a result of our wonderful experience I can now unreservedly recommend KE to any of our friends considering an adventure holiday. Nothing went wrong it was a super experience, Thank you.
Polar Cruise - The Realm of the Polar Bear
By: Sharran Davis, Nottingham, UK
I cannot stress enough how utterly amazing this trip was from the start and booking to the end. It was totally amazing, breathtaking and an experience that only comes along once in a life time. I was in tears on more than one occasion and am honoured to be part of the whole experience from the ship, the wildlife, the weather and the staff. Totally, totally recommended!!! Don't hesitate to book, you're in great hands.
Alpine Peaks of Greenland
By: Ann Shawley, S. Yorkshire, UK
Like to come in to office to discuss present and future holidays. I always receive a lovely welcome.
Wow what a fantastic trip. just didn't know what to expect as I had booked for Tibet but the trip didn't run, It was a spur of the moment decision but one I never regretted.
It was one of the must amazing things I have ever done. the boat was small but clean the staff were excellent, Phil the trip leader and Cecilla his co leader were everything you would want from leaders. Phil has run expeditions to all Polar regions and high mountains for years his knowledge was extensive.
The only thing I would say is don't take a hard case as there is no where to store it and it will take up a good portion of the cabin. I took my KE bag and just man aged to squeeze it into a small shelf. My room mate took a small hard case on wheels and it was a pain so I can't imagine what 2 would have caused.
One of the best holidays I've ever had. I'm hooked on Polar travel.
Kasbahs and Camels - A Moroccan Discovery
By: Claire Fidler, Swindon, UK
We really enjoyed the picnics by the river. Staying in Kasbahs was really interesting - each added to our understanding of the trade routes. They were also very luxurious for us! The riad in Marrakech was very attractive and welcoming. Our driver, (sounds like Rabbert) was excellent - very calm and safe driver, and a cheerful companion.
The caves were really interesting and I even enjoyed the camel ride! I loved the Bougmez Valley. Hamid took us to meet his family which was a great pleasure.
We picked KE because we had enjoyed the trip to Concordia in Pakistan very much. We liked the KE approach - to get off the beaten track and also to treat local guides well.
Temples and Trails of Burma
By: Caron Smith, London
Louis was a very diligent and conscientious leader. He has extensive knowledge of his country, its history and in particular some of the regions in which we were traveling, which really helped us to understand what we were seeing and experiencing. He took great pains in attending to the minute details at all times, to make sure we were well prepared for the day's activities, and got the most out of them. He also identified the particular area of interest (or lack of interest) among our small group, and was very flexible in changing the arrangements to suit them when appropriate. His personal knowledge and attitude contribu ted hugely to the success of the trip.
Towers and Trails of Cappadocia
By: John Rainer, Jersey, UK
Our guide Oz was brilliant. You come to expect good things from KE guides, but Oz was really concerned to ensure that everyone was content at all times. He really went above and beyond the call of duty. A real gent with good knowledge of his own country's history. This was a great holiday. It far exceeded my expectations. It really helped that the guide was so good and the other people on the trip were jovial. The walking was fantastic and we managed to fit in a hot air balloon ride. I really enjoyed all of this holiday. The valleys we walked were breathtaking. The vistas were awe inspiring. The rock cut houses,churches and underground cities were fascinating. It was a great combination of the great outdoors and culture. This was the ideal holiday in terms of walking, touring and culture at a easy going pace.
Polar Cruise - Antarctica Classic
By: Michael Burn, Watford, UK
I would have been very dissapointed if I had NOT done the Kayaking. I had 4 x 1.5hrs plus 1 x 3hrs = 9hrs on the water. The food on board was excellent. One nights camping - first class sleeping bags and tents. Kayak equipment also first class. We had some of the best weather seen in Antarctica over a 5 day period. All the leaders / lectures were excellent. I had a great time and would gladly recommend it to anyone. I most enjoyed the wilderness experience along with the stunning wildlife. Thanks for a wonderful holiday. Once I've sorted through 2,419 photos I'll send you some.
Best of Botswana - Okavango, Chobe & Vic Falls
By: Louise Osborne, Bristol, UK
This was the trip of a lifetime for us and it really fulfilled our dreams.
The wildlife viewing was fantastic and the guides extremely knowledgeable. Specialist guides with local and wildlife knowledge joined us at certain points in the trip. The proximity to the wildlife and the sheer numbers were amazing, while the animals remained relaxed by our presence. We were usually the only truck or landrover in the vicinity watching the wildlife - a real privilege.
