Everest Base Camp

Thank you for the best experience of my life. I couldn't fault anything on the trek and I had a ball. Our crew lead by Bir Sing were always smiling and helpful and this is what made the experience so great.

I never thought I'd laugh so and much and the bond that formed in such a short time between the crew and trekkers grew stronger everyday so much so that some of us didn't want to leave - it was hard to say goodbye.

Bike, Hike and Kayak South India

Southern India delivers no end of pleasant surprises on this multi-activity trip. Our carefully crafted itinerary offers the highlights of the magnificent hill country of the Western Ghats at handle bar level. With a healthy mix of cycling and walking we pause to savour Bandipur and Periyar wildlife parks where a keen eye may spot tiger and elephant, the English hill station of Ooty and the fine tea plantations at Munnar. As the sweet smell of spices fill the air we descend to the coast and the delightful backwaters of Kerala, where we kayak and cruise through a myriad of channels observing the relaxed lifestyle of rural India. Our final bike ride follows palm lined beaches to the historic town of Fort Kochi where this action packed adventure comes to an unforgettable conclusion.

traveller reviews

The trip was fantastic! A special thanks also to our team leader in South India, who was excellent. A great organiser, team-builder, attentive, friendly and fun, as well as champion bike maintainer. Also our driver, was great. The trip itself ran well in terms of building up to harder activities then winding down just as you needed it — appropriate time for activity, shopping, relaxing etc. I loved the variety of activities we had. The bikes were excellent too, most of them were new. A big thank-you for an absolutely terrific time! Even though we have been back for over a month the memories linger...
