Costa Rica - Walks and Wildlife Adventure Holiday
By: Nan Pratt, Swindon, UK
I am thrilled with this holiday. It gave an excellent and varied introduction to Costa Rica. Wonderful!
The aspects I most enjoyed were: variety of locations from tropical rainforest to 'alpine' conditions, quality of our leader, different types of accommodation, including log cabins - particularly close to the forests / Pacific / the wild, meeting Ticos, especially those who are endeavouring to improve their lot with ecotourism off the beaten track, swimming in plunge pools, hot springs, the Pacific ocean (and hotel pools), walking through a wide range of ecosystems and landscapes, observing birds, mammals, sea-life, Gallo pinto! small group, sunsets.
Walter (our leader) was enthusiastic to show us as much as possible. His knowledge of wildlife and love of his country are exemplary. He appreciated our different needs and interests and tried effectively to engage us all.
There was even more diverse habitats than I expected. The level of walking was never too difficult - I feared it may have been. This was a superb experience. I loved every moment, even when I was physically stretched.
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!
Ultimate Uganda - Gorillas & Game
By: Pauline Powell, Cumbria, UK
Fantastic trip, all and more than I expected. It was the most reasonably priced and value for money trip.
Sri Lanka - Island Explorer
By: Carrie Carruthers, Northampton, UK
We were completely satisfied with our holiday - thank you! We wanted something with an adventurous spirit and with some physical activity. Also we wanted an all inclusive package. We have travelled with other companies and disliked the random way that some food is included and some not. It was very relaxing to know we were full board throughout.
Kilimanjaro Trek and Safari
By: Louise Tomlinson, Derbyshire, UK
The guides and support crew on our trek were fantastic. They were knowledgeable and friendly and we felt safe in their hands at high altitude.
Our trip leader, Peter, was fantastic. He clearly cared about the well being of his team, and about ensuring we had a safe and enjoyable trip. His enthusiasm and encouragement for our group was tireless. We felt safe in his hands during our summit attempt - he was clearly very knowledgeable and experienced about altitude sickness & took good care of those of us who became unwell during the trek. Following Peter's lead and advice and that of the other guides ensured that we all made it to the top!The food was great, it far exceeded my expectations of what would be possible to prepare on a trek.
The standard of accommodation once coming off the mountain was far higher than I expected from the trip information - it was a nice surprise. I wasn't expecting showers, toilets and beds which felt very luxurious after a week in small tents with limited means of washing!
The tent accommodation in the Tarangire national park was a lovely surprise after a week on the mountain - very luxurious! The safari was brilliant - the tented lodges were great, and the safari experience far surpassed my expectations - we felt we had seen as much as we possibly could in the last 3 days of our holiday.
I saw the shop during a trip to Keswick and remembered it when looking into booking the trip. I liked the option of doing the trek up Kilimanjaro over a longer time than other companies offered and the fact that this increased the chances of making it to the summit.
Delhi to Kathmandu
By: Nathan broomhall, Shropshire, UK
An amazing holiday a true experience, a holiday of the life time, we did so much in such a small space of time, completely satisfied. I loved varanasi and the safari in chitwan national park, there was such a diverse range of experiences and the overnight train aswell and of course the Taj Mahal. I chose KE adventure because my mother has travelled with you before and recommended you above other competitors, also because i knew that i would be looked after and that all meals were included reduces costs while on the said holiday.
Tigers, Temples and Taj Mahal
By: Derek Weaver, Hampshire, UK
We've holidayed before with KE, and already booked again this year. We've been satisfied before, and brochure (and partciularly website) make things easy. The itinerary is well put together and we had tiger sightings beyond expectation, although large element of luck in this I suspect!
By: Esther Herdeg, USA
A fantastic trip, well organized, appropriate accommodations, very adequate food, and of course all in an interesting part of the world. I most enjoyed overall planning, pacing, accommodations and of course the scenery and sights. My 8th KE trip and looking forward to a 9th!
Tigers, Temples and Taj
By: Ronchetti Family, Lincolnshire, UK
Ketan (our guide) from KVT couldn't have been better. He was good company, great at giving us info on the sights and also background on life in India, religions etc. He was great at pacing things to the group (as we finally rebelled against another 5am start !)and giving space to us during "free time". He was super with the children and seemed genuinely interested in providing us with a great time and showcasing India. We've never used a guided tour like this before (we tend to travel independently) but for somewhere as different as India it was essential and Ketan was brilliant. Once again we'd lke to sing Ketan's praises. We were somewhat nervous about a guided tour but he was excellent.
Victoria Falls to Cape Town Mountain Bike Epic
By: Katie, Germany
I liked pretty much all aspects, really. Obviously the cycling, but also the hiking and kayaking. We were super lucky with the weather, the evening meals were spectacular...what more can you ask? People should bring lots of energy bars, sports drinks and a laundry line. Oh...another thing, please recommend to customers to bring one roll of clingy wrap to wrap their cycles during the transfers on the trailer. This will save so much time and effort to clean the entire bike after every transfer. (There's a lot of sand on route)
