Sherpa Everest

I would like to say that I was thoroughly impressed with your operations in Nepal. Everything ran wonderfully smoothly. Ramesh, our leader, was particulary brilliant. He was unimposing and unobtrusive, but knew everything that was going on: from what each of ate each morning to how we all were coping with the trek. When I retun to the Himalaya I will not hesitate in travelling with World Expeditions and I will hope to travel with Ramesh again.

Alpine Rhine Cycle

The Grisons, or GraubŁnden as it is referred to by the Swiss, is considered by many to be Switzerland's most beautiful region with a multitude of lakes, valleys and snow capped mountain peaks. The Rhine river has its source in the Grisons, connecting its mountains to Lake Constance over 100km away. Travelling alongside the Rhine and Lake Constance, this diverse cycle adventure from Switzerland, passes through Liechtenstein and Austria before returning to Constance in Germany. The relaxed itinerary offers the flexibility to explore the gorges of the Grissons on foot, cycle to winegrowers villages to sample the local specialties, visit the Museum of Art in Liechtenstein, and climb up to a castle for a picture postcard view.

traveller reviews

The cycle trip was a very enjoyable experience - the bikes were provided in excellent condition and very fit for purpose.
The hotels were excellent and very comfortable, and the cycle route was very interesting in beautiful countryside and apart from one day fitted the low to moderate rating.
One suggestion if people plan to arrive one day early in Konstanz:
Get your bikes early and take a ride along the lake front to Mainau Island and beyond past orchards and farms with views of the lake. A very nice, scenic ride (about 35 km return) and a good way to get familiar with your bike.
