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.
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.
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.
Costa Rica - Walks and Wildlife Adventure Holiday
By: Christina Schonherr, Edinburgh, UK
The trip was well organised and we didn't have to worry about anything. Our guide Walter was really excellent, knowledgable and happy to share his knowledge with us, he never tired of trying to find the animals for us.
My original holiday had to be cancelled and I was rebooked on this one. I got really great help from KE staff (thanks a lot!) and the holiday was really a success!
A friend recommended KE Adventure Travel to me. I picked this trip as it was a nice combination of hiking, getting to know the country and wildlife. I really enjoyed the holiday and would highly recommend this trip to anyone!
Ethiopia - Addis to Axum Explorer
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.
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.
Jordan Highlights Tour
By: Rosemary Collier, West Sussex, UK
A brilliant introduction to the Middle East tempting me to return to Jordan. Nader Saleh and the driver Ziad were just fantastic, being very helpful, informative and friendly. Most enjoyed - The trekking and walking, the local information readily transmitted by the guide. The highlight being Wadi Rum and meeting the Bedouins, plus a 3day old camel!
Ultimate Uganda - Gorillas & Game
By: Jose Vosa,
Agenda was full and enjoyable and spending time with the Gorilla group was really excellent.

By: Caroline Furey, Dublin, Ireland
I throughly enjoyed the holiday. We had a great group of people who gelled together really well. KE was recomended to me by a collegue and I would have no heistation in recomending you to anyone.
Most enjoyed - The trecking in the North, the Mekong Delta and Ho Chi Ming City- very hard to pick one!! Also discoverying limes is a cure for jelly fish attacks!!!
From the Pacific to the Caribbean
By: Victoria Bautista, London, UK
The owner of the local agent (Esther) drove 3 hours in the early morning just to meet our group and to make sure we were enjoying our trip. Such a personal touch! Joaquin (our guide) was fantastic! He is extremely conscientious and personable.
This was a fantastic trip. Although it was not very long, we packed in a lot of things without feeling rushed as we were able to stay in one place for a couple of nights at a time.
I really enjoyed our stay in Ometepe Island. All of the activities were a lot of fun. The Ziplining on the first day of the tour was a great way to bond as a group.
From soaking up the atmosphere of exotic Istanbul to sailing over mythical sunken cities, spend more time exploring and less time driving!
