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.

Walking in Puglia

Puglia, Italy's gateway to the Orient, is a land forged in history by a mixture of civilisations and cultures. This enriching walking trip combines archeological and architectural treasures with hiking through valleys and along coastal paths surrounded by landscapes of red earth, olive groves and vineyards. See the unique dry stone cottages known as trulli in intriguing Alberobello and the cave houses known as Sassi in Matera. Explore the enchanting maze of narrow streets in the 'white city' Ostuni, the seaside village of Otranto facing the Adriatic and visit the elegant Baroque city of Lecce.
