Jordan Highlights Tour
By: Tracy Steelhammer, San Francisco
I want to emphasize that I was delighted by this trip. The choice of places to visit and the amount of time to spend at them was nearly perfect.
I loved this trip. You struck an excellent balance between how many places to visit and how long to visit them. The amount of activity was very good, in the middle between sedentary and strenuous. Jordan is very beautiful and hospitable. I sincerely hope you can invent more trips like this in other parts of the world.
The jeep ride and walks in Wadi Rum probably were my favorites. Petra is more spectacular than its photos and the walk into it from Little Petra was wonderful. Floating in the Dead Sea is pretty silly but it was fun, so I'm glad we did it.
I'm a happy veteran of several KE trips.
Antarctic Basecamp Adventure
By: Rob Eagle, Somerset, UK
The company are highly experienced in providing polar cruises and the staff they selected for the organisation on the trip and for the multi-activities were of a very high standard.
The snowshoeing short hikes were excellent. Weather was variable but EVERY effort was made to get as much done at many different locations as possible - even a "landing" directly onto sea ice (which the company had never done before).
Most enjoyed - Antarctica! Snowshoeing with my wife in superb scenery. Whales.
Ethiopia - Addis to Axum
By: Sandy Bartle, Nottingham, UK
A great variety of experiences. The only comment for improvement would be an extra day of walking in the Simiens would have been great.
Amanuel made sure we had a good time. He was full of knowledge about his country and was very enthusiastic. He was helpful in ensuring we had plenty of photographic stops and on long journeys would arrange for us to walk for a short time so we weren't sitting in the vehicle all day! He was helpful in translating menus and encouraging us to try local dishes. Organised surprised final evening.
Most enjoyed - Walking in the Simien Mountains, the day visiting the Rock churches in Tigray region and Lalibelia. Meeting the local people and all the different local guides who were excellent.
Polar Cruise - Antarctica Classic
By: William Cross, North Shields, Tyne & Wear
Julio and his team (trip leaders) were exemplary - keen, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and driven to pass on their knowledge and love of Antarctica and its animal life to us. Antarctica is absolutely stunning - probably the most remarkable place on the planet! It felt like a privilege to see it. If you get the chance - GO!
Polar Cruise - The Realm of the Polar Bear
By: John Dawson, Derbyshire, UK
Walruses. Zodiac excursions on calm fjords under the snouts of glaciers. Being given free access to the bridge of the ship. The day in Longyearbyen was most interesting. The scenery was awesome. The knowledgeable members of the team on the ship. All sorts of subjects were covered. having the use of a small gym on the ship to try and run some of the food off.
While my wife's daughter fell about laughing at the thought of her getting into a Zodiac we experienced no trouble at all as reasonably fit 71 and 69 year olds.
Rocky Mountains and the Grand Canyon
By: Ian Raynor, Kent, England
Yellowstone was fantastic, we were very lucky with wildlife viewing seeing a Grizzly with her 2 cubs, Bison, Elks and although a little way off we also saw a moose. The geothermal pools etc were fantastic to see. Several of the treks were excellent espescially lost man loop and maroon Bells/Buckskin pass. The grand canyon was an experience not to forget espescially experiencing sleeping under the stars, they are so clear with no light pollution.
Ecuador and the Galapagos
By: Keith Mitford, North Yorkshire, UK
Enjoyed having Carlos as our trip leader/guide in Ecuador. Very informative and knowledgable. Had every confidence in him trekking at altitude.
Most enjoyed - Good guides, trekking on Cotapaxi.Varied walks and beautiful countryside.Reaching 5000 metres altitude.Visiting the Galapagos Islands, a dream come true.
Beaches & Baobabs of Northern Madagascar
By: Hannah Casling, Surrey, UK
The holiday was fantastic - the pace of the trip was perfect as we did so much but we still always had a few hours downtime each day, and the last few days on Nosy Be were very relaxing. The local agents were brilliant and so knowledgeable, and the accommodation and food far exceeded our expectations (three course meals twice a day = a little too much at times!) Thank you KE Adventure!
