Nepal - Community Project Travel

From beginning to the end the trip was fantastic. We had two wonderful guides with completely different strengths. Both leaders were very professional and caring. The trek was magnificent. It was well worth climbing to see the wonderful views once we reached Namche Bazaar. Our guides were wonderful. They did a great job of looking out for us on the trek and a fantastic job of looking after us in camp. The food was amazing. The porters were also really friendly and helpful and deserve medals for lugging all our gear around.


The local villagers at Jumbesi made us feel really welcome and put on a special dinner at the monastery. We were overwhelmed with the welcome they gave us and also the thank you. We had a great bunch of other trekkers on the trip and we were all matched up well with our room mates. We were very lucky with the weather and had day after day of awe inspiring views. There is not one bad thing that I can say about the trip. The trip was a life changing experience and I would love to do it all again. I would like to thank everyone involved. And I hope that one day I get to travel again with World Expeditions.

Cappadocia Family Adventure

The unique and fascinating landscapes of the Cappadocia region in central Turkey are one of life's must sees. Sharing the experience of walking through this landscape of red hued valley's dotted with unusual rock formations is one rarely forgotten. With its twisting tracks offering views of canyons, sweeping valleys and small villages the children will be swept away by the adventure, where one rock may house a church and another a tea stall. Enveloped in history and culture, the classroom will come alive as you explore ancient art in rock hewn monasteries, observe the ceramic trade dating back to the Hittites, visit a vast underground city and walk the gorge of the Ilhara Valley with its honeycombed rock walls housing tombs and churches from the Byzantine era. During the trip there will be time to go for an early morning hot air balloon ride, visit a Turkish bath and take in a cultural show (all optional) while at night you are immersed in the region.
