Temples and Trails of Burma
By: Daryl Cutts, St Albans, UK
Hotel accommodation was a mixture of good and excellent. Staying in the monasteries during the trek was a fabulous experience. There was a bit too much food on offer ie breakfast, lunch and dinner, especially on those days when we weren't trekking - although I realise that this can be managed by eating small amounts, there seemed to be quite a bit of waste. I loved that we did so much in the time available - even the longer than expected trek days.
Nyi Nyi (our guide) was open in sharing his views on the political, social, economic and cultural situation in Myanmar and this was a positive part of the holiday for me. Practically he was very efficient and also looked for consensus among the group to make some decisions where appropriate and accepting if opting out.
I most enjoyed the trekking - partly because that's the kind of holiday I prefer anyway as it's more physically active than being transported from one place to the next - but also because it allowed the opportunity to appreciate landscapes particular to Burma, aspects of village life and to stay in monasteries. I loved the day on Lake Inle - partly because it meant being outside all day but also because of all the interest (local communities living on the lake etc).
Best of Northern India

Very supportive and knowledgeable trip leader who took good care of our welfare throughout with a nice personal touch.
Most enjoyed - Taj Mahal, Ghats, seeing a tiger, local culture.
Namibia Highlights Tour
By: Keith Muir, Glasgow, UK
We were very fortunate to have a wonderful guide and equally wonderful co-travellers. Namibia is stunning but it is a very big country and involves a lot of travelling by road.
Many of the lodgings were in isolated wilderness spots which were beautiful
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.
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.
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!
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.
Jordan Highlights Tour
By: Fiona Dinn, Hampshire, UK
Nader (our guide) was excellent in every respect. Knowledgeable, and interesting conversationalist. We learned a great deal about Jordan. He was good company and positive with the group's interactions.
The way the trip was structured and the way that it unfolded meant that every hour of each day brought new wonderful experiences.
The nights at the Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum, seeing the stars, the food and company of Mohammed and Yusef (the camp crew) was particularly enjoyable.
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.
Thailand - In the Kingdom of Siam
By: Mark Fussell, Cumbria, UK
Excellent help from KE office staff especially with our last minute add on's.
The trip met if not exceeded expectations. The whole balance of holiday allowed plenty of time to relax in resort at the end. The Cambodia extension was also excellent and I would recommend it.
