Kilimanjaro Shira Route

Just got back from Mt. Kilimanjaro with my son (we both made it to the peak) and the experience exceeded my expectations in every regard. It was better that I had hoped for and I want to thank you very much for all the assistance, hand holding, and help before the trip. I had never done anything like this, but I can't wait to try it again.

Piedmont Cycle

Occupying a large area bordering France and Switzerland, Piedmont is the ancient dominion of the Savoys, the ill-fated royal family who ruled Italy from the Unification in 1870 until abdication in 1946. This trip allows you to cycle through the stunning countryside and vineyards of the regions of Langhe and Monferrato. Each day cycle past small villages and enjoy panoramic views over rolling hills. Piedmont is also a region where food comes first, with a host of specialties in an area which boasts centuries old culinary traditions and outstanding top quality produce appreciated throughout the world. You will have the opportunity to sample Alba truffles, excellent cheeses and the renowned Piedmont wines.
