Kilimanjaro Rongai Route Trek
By: Clodagh Masters, Norfolk, UK
A life changing experience! I enjoyed most the fantastically cheerful porters, the amazing food and the beauty of our surroundings.
Mount Ararat Climb - Turkey's Fabled Mountain
By: Veronica Hare, Kent, UK
Ismet our guide was very knowledgeable and very caring, the pace which was set by our other mountain guide; Yusuf, was perfect, there were enough breaks in which to keep ourselves hydrated and take pictures of the beautiful scenery. On summit, Ismet escorted one client back down to High Camp, and then made the knackering ascent for a second time to catch up with the rest of us - now that is true dedication! The food was great - even for a fussy eater such as me! Well Done and big thanks to Arif!
The local transport was always on time, the hotels were great (especially the one in Van!). Of course reaching the summit was the obvious highlight of the trip, but in terms of a fabulous finish, it had to be swimming in Lake Van, Turkey's biggest lake! So refreshing and beautiful.
All in all, a wonderful climb in a wonderful part of the world, made even more wonderful, by the wonderful guides!
Been on a few KE trips, never had a bad one, will be booking next year's trip very soon!
Classic Haute Route - High Alpine Trekking
By: Rene Dee, East Sussex, UK
I most enjoyed learning new skills, finding a new and demanding challenge, finding fellow travelers who were comparable in experience and fitness and discovering alpine huts in crazy places. I can't speak too highly of Kathy Murphy. She was a leader who inspired us to listen to her intently and follow her unconditionally. Her broad experience in the Alps and other mountains shone through, yet she was not pompous nor arrogant as a result of this. She was focused, calm and considerate of our needs at all times and gave us regular sound advice that got us through this extraordinary trek without incident or problems. I found the level of professionalism and support from your organisation excellent and worthy of my repeat business.
One Week Haute Route - Mnt Blanc to the Matterhorn
By: Daniel Neild, Coventry, UK
Most enjoyed - Being on the glaciers for the first time with crampons. Different climbing via ferratas and rocks ( a bit of everything).
Paul was a great guide with lots of knowledge and very experienced. Felt safe all the way.
Dolomites Via Ferrata
By: Albert Donato, Franconia, USA
This was without a doubt one of my favorite holidays! I really enjoyed all of the Via Ferrata. The scenery was as diverse as anything I have ever seen.
I cannot say enough good things about our French guide. I have never met a man with so much energy and enthusiasm for the mountains especially somebody who is 63 years old! His 45 years of experience is unsurpassed to any of my other guides. He was constantly making sure our safety was the number one priority on the trip, especially on the rainy days. He could not have done more to make this trip a memorable one for me.
I travelled with a good group of people and a great guide. I have memories that will last a lifetime!
Iceland Three Peaks Challenge
By: Jane Marriott, Northampton UK
The country was fantastic and other members of the group great fun. Having the right guide is essential and on this trip we certainly had the right person. Agust was one of the best guides I have had, so knowledgeable, experienced and great fun. The trip was wonderful and better than what I'd expected.
Ecuador's Volcano Triple Crown
By: Chris Thorp, Derbyshire, UK
Edison (our guide) was a real 5-star guide. His knowledge of the mountains was equalled by his knowledge of his own country and the flora and fauna. He was a mine of information, and irrepressible and resourceful. We nicknamed him 'Tigger', such was his energy and enthusiasm. It was all thanks to his great endeavours, and network of contacts, that we snatched the prize of Cotopaxi, when everything appeared to have been thwarted by the weather. I cannot commend him highly enough.
Mont Blanc Ascent with Gran Paradiso
By: Tony Bain , Chorley, Lancashire
This holiday was perfect in every way - all information was accurate and staff always willing to help.
Our trip leader was fantastic! Professional, friendly and always available to give advice, or time to adapt to the environment, never rushed or felt to be rushed. I can't thank them enough for ensuring that firstly we were all safe and that we all enjoyed our trip.
I most enjoyed walking on the glaciers and scrambling during the training days, and obviously the satisfaction of actually summiting Mont Blanc.
Thank you so much, I will use KE Adventure Travel again, highly recommended.
Trekking to Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro
By: Daniel Fryer, Lancashire, UK
Fantastic trip with brilliant support from all the crew. Pace was prefect food was delicious. Peter (the guide) was fantastic, his advice and level of English was superb, we had a wide range of ages in our group and no-one had a bad word to say about the was he ran his crew as well as us. I think without his leadership not all 9 of us would have made the summits.The warmth you felt from the whole crew, made you feel very welcome.
Brilliant holiday that I would fully reccomend to friends and family.
Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route Trek
By: Sandra Nixon, Liverpool, UK
I thought the overall schedule was excellent. It allowed everyone to adapt to the altitude. The pace and length of walks each day was ideal. The different walks each day also allowed you to appreciate the different environments of Kili.
Our guide Elias was excellent. He paced the walks to our fitness levels. He engaged with us, build good relationships. He was open and honest, regularly communicating what was happening, what to expect, providing advice on clothing, in addition to making conversation. The service provided by the crew was excellent. The food prepared and served by James was fabulous. It met our energy needs to the day and there was a good variety.
Working with the same Bolivian ground agent for 15 years, we know we can depend on the services of his AGMTB certified climbing leaders.
