Everest Base Camp

I just got back from the Nepal trip. We had an amazing time and we could have not asked for a better experience. Our group was brilliant. The staff (porters and Sherpas) were phenomenal, the food was top notch and the views were everything I hoped for and more...I know I will be back there again. The people and places are very close to my heart now.

Thank you for making my dream come true.

Assisi to Orvieto

Visiting Umbria, one of Italy's smallest regions, is an exhilarating experience with its breathtaking countryside vistas. Walk from ancient Assisi, the birthplace of St Francis, through rolling countryside and quaint hilltop towns where world-famous handmade ceramics are produced. Imposing monasteries and castles mark the landscape of this region. Visit the old city of Perugia with its impressive architecture and Roman sites. Explore Spello and follow the ancient route of Via Romea to Città della Pieve, a red-brick town on the border with Tuscany. The trail concludes in Orvieto where car access into the city is prohibited in order to preserve the fragile rocky plateau on which it stands. Evenings are spent in a combination of comfortable hotels and agriturismos specially chosen for their local flavour and classic cuisine.
