Debbie "When I think back to the best things of my 2009 trip, it must be the way it changes and challenges you. Iran was such a welcoming country, India is total madness on the streets and Tibet with Everest base camp, monasteries and the hugeness of it. The best nights were bush camps campfires and beers. Everyday a new experience. You do get dirty and in the middle of nowhere soap, toilet paper and a g..."

    Firstly, this trip is not for everyone and by no stretch of the imagination is it an easy way to travel. However having said that, if you love adventure and are capable of taking things in stride, it could turn out to be the most amazing journey of your... Read more

    I would not recommend this company to anyone, however with recent changes (new staff) it may have improved. This years trip seems to have been smoothe sailing with the new driver and guide.. too bad I didnt travel this year. I travelled in 2016 on part of... Read more

    Madventure commented on this review
    Hi. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your 2016 trip overall and I understand your frustration at missing certain countries. Unfortunately on your trip in 2016 we could not gain access into Tibet as they had introduced new laws and even though we had a permit they still refused to give us access. This had a knock-on effect which meant we could not then visit Nepal or India as the only way to get there was through Tibet. Subsequently we had to put the extra time into China, Myanmar and Southeast Asia. We do stress throughout our website that things can and will go wrong on a trip of this magnitude and unfortunately on your trip Tibet was the problem. Like you say, the 2017 trip were allowed access to Tibet so did not encounter these problems. I am sorry you had these problems in 2016, some things are simply out of our control and when a situation like that happens we have to re-route and make a viable alternative itinerary that suits the majority of the group. Regarding your crew, I am sorry to hear you did not get along with them and found them abrupt. The job of the crew can be stressful at times and they do have to deal with many issues on a daily basis as well as many different personalities aboard the truck. The crew you are referring to are actually no longer with us and the new crew are doing very well so the current trips are all running successfully. Besides the problems you encountered I am really glad to hear you made some life-long friends and loved the places and experiences along the way. I wish you happy travels in the future. Best regards, Will

    This is not a tour company , it's a con job , a scam , it has changed its name numerous times to hide killer bad reviews , they stole my money don't let them steal yours , you have been warned !

    Madventure commented on this review
    In 2015 we had to ask you to leave the trip due to your violent behaviour towards one of your fellow passengers. It was unfortunate that this incident occurred 4 months into your trip but the safety of the group comes first and in these instances we have to take the appropriate action as per our T&C's. I can understand that you are upset and have written many negative reviews about us on various platforms but in the future can you please stick to the actual facts and refrain from simply making things up as it is not a true reflection of what occurred on your tour. Best regards, William

    Madventure commented on this review
    In 2013 relations between Iran and USA were not good, so the Iranian government were not issuing Authority Numbers to USA citizens so no Americans could apply for an Iran visa. Whether you applied in USA, Turkey or anywhere else in the world did not matter, they were not issuing Iran visas to American tourists. So that year we advised all US citizens before departure that they would not be able to visit Iran with us, so the suggestion that you did not know about the Iran visa situation prior to departure is simply not true. I am not sure why you chose not to visit Pakistan with us because that was a possibility, but many people chose not to do Pakistan with us in 2013 as they were concerned about the political situation there at the time. Since 2014 relations between USA and Iran have improved and all our American clients have obtained the Iranian visa in Turkey. We always give clear and current visa information to all our clients prior to departure and all the visa information is clearly laid out on our website. Obviously things can change when we are actually on the road but prior to departure everyone is always informed as much as possible. I am sorry you could not visit Iran with us in 2013 but it was not due to any fault of ours. No Americans could have obtained the Iran visa anywhere that year. Best regards, William

    Do NOT go with this company. I am writing this review anonymously as to avoid any issues with the owner Will. For the amount you pay, you'd best hope nothing goes wrong on the trip because Will almost never forks out money (your money that is) in order to... Read more

    Madventure commented on this review
    Your review seems more of a personal attack on myself, Will, rather than a review of the tour itself, so your baseless accusations and your choice to remain anonymous can only lead me to assume you are one of the people asked to leave the tour due to unacceptable violent behaviour. The auxillary batteries did die unexpectedly and Adam could not find replacement deep-cycle leisure batteries on your route so I apologise for any inconvenience this caused. You can not use a standard car battery for this purpose. I do try and make it perfectly clear on our website that things can and will go wrong on such a long overland expedition. Unfortunately this was one of them. If we could have fixed it we would have. Every year Adam, Brenda and I strive to improve the tour in every possible way and this is reflected in the route and the good standard of food & accommodation we provide. The fact that you don't even mention the sights, food & accommodation on the tour is once again a clear indication that your problem is not with the tour but rather with me personally, and most likely because I had to ask you to leave the tour. Our itinerary is clearly advertised on our website so if you wanted to go elsewhere you should not have booked this tour. Please stick to the facts when you write a review. Your slanderous accusations are misleading and are not a true representation of the tour. William
