    Food on trek was excellent but perhaps we could have had more for breakfast - eggs as well as porridge?

  • Michael7th March 2019
    The prices were very competitive and what I really liked was that it was in my local currency. When I booked the confirmation came back in good time. Since then I have received more correspondence regarding the trip, which is good to see and very informative.
