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!
I would be delighted to recommend AA for providing a service to clients who wish climb Kilmanjaro or go on safari.
|My daughter her husband and myself climbed Kilimanjaro with adventure alternative and we all made the summit on the29thSept. We had an amazing trip, it wasn’t easy and if it was there would be no challenge .Many thanks to our guides and porters for the way they looked after us without their help and encouragement we would never have made it. We met a young man Kelly from Kenya he is living proof of the wonderful work Adventure Alternative does. He went from street child to the director of the company, and his enthusiasm is just a joy. Casto our main contact, like all the staff were so helpful, they really made the whole trip a lot of fun!!!!!!!!!|
Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you for helping to organise a fantastic trip to Mount Kenya! It really was an unforgettable trip and we all hugely enjoyed it! The organisation of the whole trip was faultless and I was so impressed with everyone I have met here from AA. Kelly is a fantastic guy and he looked after us all so well. He is such a wonderful asset to the organisation. His ability to remain positive and smiley even at the bleakest moments was impressive!! Cyrus was also fantastic and we couldn't have asked for a better guide, along with the brilliant team of porters, not forgetting the fantastic cook. He fed us very very well! So thank you very much to everyone who helped make the trip so successful and enjoyable. I know Kevin is already planning a trip for next year!!
I really was impressed how well it was organised - you know I am keen on the idea of "ethical enterprise"....
The whole experience was really enhanced by the group. It is great to have a group of people who all pitch in and support each other....
I really did enjoy it, particularly since I managed to do it. I wouldn't have done that without Matt, Ibrahim, Omar and the whole group's encouragement.
I thoroughly enjoyed the trip, the scenery is spectacular and it was wonderful to travel through villages and meet the very welcoming local communities. We couldn't have asked for better guides in Matt, Ibrahim and Omar they were very knowledgeable and fun to be around!
This was my first trek and first time away on my own so as you can imagine I was pretty nervous about coming on the trip but I had such a brilliant time and met some amazing people. Speaking with Adventure Alternative prior to booking really reassured me so all that was left for me to do was get excited and gather the gear. The trip itself was well organised, the staggered ascent allowed for acclimatisation as well as getting a great insight into the Moroccan way of life and culture. I can honestly say I have never had holiday quite like it and now that I have the bug to see more and do more treks I could not think of a better company than Adventure Alternative to do it with.
