Everest the Hard Way Trek
By: Michael Jones, Flintshire, Wales
What can I say about Val? She is just about the most amazing person I have EVER met. She was really attentive to the needs and well being of all the clients and support crew throughout the whole trek. Constantly ensuring that we consumed enough fluids every day to help with acclimatisation, and that we always felt 100%. She made sure we all ate plenty of food, even when we didn't really feel like it, but knew we needed it.
Val was really enthusiastic and not only showed us the majestic mountain scenery of the Himalayas, she took us into the homes of her "extended nepali families", which was a huge cultural experience for us all. I will never forget the families we met. Overall, we could not have asked for a better leader than Val. Her experience, knowledge of the area, and personal friends she imparted upon us, turned a trip of a life time into a life changing trip. I cannot stress enough the huge respect and heartfelt thanks I have for Val, for making my holiday magical.
If I had to rate my level of satisfaction with the whole holiday, I would give it 100 out of 10!! It far exceeded ALL my expectations, and the memories will always live with me.Did I enjoy the holiday??? YOU BET!!
Mount Khuiten - Mongolia
By: Philip Gardner, California
Excellent support for planning the trip. I went on 2 treks, this one and the Russian Tcherskiy Mountain trek, so I needed extra support and it was there.
Adrian (KE guide) was simply the best (tell him I said so). First rate in every way. He is the reason the trip went so well! His personality simply fits perfectly with the requirements of a guide - everyone's friend and mentor.
My satisfaction cannot be overstated. Not that the experience wasn't challenging - it was - but it was just as I expected; a well supported, no frills adventure with exceptional guides. I will definitely book again with KE Adventure.
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.
Mount Kenya and Kilimanjaro
By: Ian Mitchell, Huddersfield, W. Yorks
The acclimatisation on Mt Kenya was a strong selling point - the only operator that seems to do this - also I got to see more of Kenya. A very well organised trip with excellent back-up and food throughout, I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
Trekking Mount Mgoun in Winter
By: Martin Southwick, Scunthorpe, UK
I always think its best to reserve judgement about a trip for a while after one returns, in case of "holiday fever". Now, a month after we set off for the Atlas mountains, its highly probable this is the best trip I have ever been on. Stunning scenery, great company, excellent leadership, fab food and no clouds. Tagine anyone? What more could you ask for?
Trekking Mount Toubkal in Winter
By: Alison Farrell, Lancashire, UK
Both Ollie, our UK leader and Rashid, our local guide were so helpful and constructive in the advice they gave. They played a huge part in ensuring that the whole group gelled well together and made the trip enjoyable, memorable and fun! This was the first trek of this type that I had been on and I was extremely impressed with every aspect of the trip's organisation. I had a great time and would definitely book another trip of this type through KE.
Iceland Three Peaks Challenge
By: Dan Mortimer, London
Iceland is a fantastic adventure holiday destination. Accommodation, pace and routing of the trip were all as expected. Plenty of adventure and wonderful memories from the land of fire and ice! A very enjoyable week!
Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar
By: Gary Love, Tennessee, USA
The trip was fantastic, and the porters and guides made the difference between success and failure. I cannot thank them enough. Onex, our guide, provided excellent leadership and his crew provided outstanding support to all of us.
This was the greatest adventure that I have ever attempted. No doubt that I would have never made it without the support of the KE staff and the local support personel. Onex went way out of his way to make sure that I could contact my family in the USA while I was away, and I thank him very much. This was a wondeful experience.
It was way more difficult mentally and physically than I would have ever dreamed of. I was in excellent shape but there is no way I could have prepared for the conditions that I experienced climbing the mountain.
Kilimanjaro Rongai Route Trek
By: Dan Cook, London
Onex was an exceptional leader, able to quickly spot when team members needed help or guidance. He performed his role quietly and efficiently and made sure he allowed time for each team member. Climbing Kili was always going to be memorable, but the local team made it something very special. I wouldn't hesisate to recommend TVR tours to any of my friends.
Mont Blanc Ascent with Gran Paradiso
By: Alan Peace, Staffordshire, UK
Excellent doesn't do the work of Bob and Cherie at the Yeti Lodge in Argentierre justice. It was considerably better than excellent! The meals prepared by Bob would have not been out of place in a top flight restaurant and Cherie did a superb job in looking after us.
