Testimonial

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for organising the Great Sarawak Adventure! I had an absolutely amazing time and as a cultural exchange it was like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. In particular the Picnic with the Penan was a real highlight of the trip. I really hope that I can continue to promote the cause of the Penan people and encourage more people to visit in the future.

We had the best time ever in Morocco, and so glad that we went with Adventure Alternative! Our guide warned us that we might cry when we got to the peak of Mount Toubkal, and I didn't believe him, but he was totally right! Wonderful memories that will stay with me for a long time.

Toubkal trip was top class once again. Couldnt fault local guides or Matt. All the staff had smiles that would light up a room for the duration of the trip. I always eat better and feel much healthier on adven alternative trips than I do at home and this trip was no exception, well done to cook, kitchen staff and all invoved in preparing same. Great to have Gav along also for a much needed catch up. Sound bunch of lads in group also which helped to lighten the mood on the early starts. Not forgetting the porters, well done-I'm not even at the races compared to their fitness levels!!. Looking forward to the next trip.

I’d like to thank you very much for all you and your team have done for me. Again, this was a really tough experience, but you and your team looked very well after me. The team was great from the guides to the cook and porter. Castro also picked me up and dropped me to the airport, as arranged and gave us the briefing for the 7 days. I couldn’t be happier. I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone who is thinking to climb Kilimanjaro. It is not an easy task, far from it, but your team helped making it easier.

This is a little bit of a late email (and my apologies for that) to say thank you for all the help and advice you gave me before my trek to Everest Base Camp and for letting me complete a solo trek. 

I had a fantastic trip and was looked after wonderfully in Kathmandu by Pasang and, on the trek itself,  Lopsang and Dendi were brilliant, nothing being too much trouble and always attentive and helpful - you have a great team out in Nepal. I have some very special memories of my trek - the stunning scenery, the walk itself, the people I met on the way and the marvellous sense of achievement at reaching my goal by arriving at base camp; thank you once again for organising it for me.

Adventure Alternative were a fantastic company to use for the Kilimanjaro trip. I looked into numerous companies but they had everything I wanted. Their knowledge, experience and expertise was exceptional and they ensured with the extra day of trek, that we all got to the peak. I cannot recommend them highly enough and should I choose to do a trip similar again, I would go with them.

Adventure Alternative did an incredible job pairing responsibility with fun. The trip was culturally immersive, every member of the UK and Morocco team were friendly, and the trip was very exciting!
