Fully Bonded and No Surcharges

With post- Brexit exchange rates creating soaring costs in many countries some travellers are tempted to put their own package together on the web in a bid to save cost. There are plenty of local operators all around the globe selling all types of adventure holidays, but the majority have no bonding and so your payment is not protected. Do you really want to take this risk, especially following the recent collapse of the Low Cost Travel Group which left over 100,000 out of pocket?

An Alpine Love Affair

Written by  Dace Ekerte - Adventure Travel Consultant

If you’re thinking of doing a long distance walk somewhere in Europe, then the Best of the Tour du Mont Blanc holiday would be an excellent choice. I joined this holiday in June. It was my first time in the Alps and I think that the first impression is always the most important - I was stunned by scenery what I saw.

A guide will get you safely from A to B, but a KE leader will transform your holiday.

We love the Canary Islands almost as much as we love our KE leaders who guide our holidays there. Most of them have worked for us for many years and receive fantastic feedback from our travellers. They will immerse you in the local history, culture, flora and fauna as well as go the extra mile to make you have the best holiday possible. We travel with them regularly so take a look at what the KE office think of our KE guides.
