              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... Show 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... Show more

              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... Show more

              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 !

              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... Show more

              Enough has been said by others about the different trips. However, one point I would like to make that I just found recently that would be important for future travelers. CHECK EVERYTHING THEY TELL YOU BEFORE YOU LEAVE. I was told when I signed up for... Show more

              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... Show more

              I was on the 2015 mad venture overland from London to Australia. Yes there were problems, yes there were difficult times but these are far outweighed by what the trip gave me. I have come back a wiser and I hope a better person still gobsmacked by the... Show more

              Couldn't find where to review the Alaska to Brazil trip so I've just put it here. I did the Alaska to Brazil overland expedition with Madventure and this is my personal review of the trip. It was, without a doubt the best trip of my life! Although hard... Show more

              What an exciting exploratory expedition I had. This was my second overland experience with this company (my first trip was from Alaska to Brazil). It is definitely not for the overly faint hearted but a very memorable part of my life story. Not only did... Show more

              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... Show 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... Show more

              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... Show more
