My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.
We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.
Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!
So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.
Types of Adventures
Our adventure travel holidays are rated not just in terms of the destinations we visit but also by the type of journey and activity we offer. To ensure you select your ideal adventure holiday please review this section of our website, where we define all of the activities we offer as well as our grading system. If you have any further questions send us an email or give us a call.
View more details on how we define our trip grading system.
Our diverse range of natural history and cultural adventures combine our expert knowledge of remote regions with our ability to devise exhilarating journeys. There is little or no camping on these trips while at night we stay at comfortable hotels, local inns or well-appointed lodges.
On these journeys you may enjoy the local hospitality of the inns in the remote countryside of Japan, explore a Buddhist monastery deep in the mountains of Tibet or delve into the history of the Great Game in Kashgar, China.
While there are no specific physical prerequisites it is important that travellers are in good health and have a positive, flexible and enquiring mind in order to fully savour the myriad of experiences that are part and parcel of our journeys.
