“Having returned from Mount Everest Base Camp Trek I feel compelled to write a review. From start to finish the trip excelled. A special thanks to our wonderful guides. They exceeded our expectations and I can't thank them enough. So a big shout out to Randeep, Dhurber and Santos who led with patience, wit and drive.They were a force to be reckoned with and through their knowledge, experience and friendliness it made the trip the amazing experience it was. Also a big thanks to our sherpas and cooks who were an integral part of the team.
From the onset of our journey it was an excellent experience. Hotels and eco lodges were top class.
Many thanks to all the team at World Expeditions.”

“This is a trip to experience some of the most awe inspiring scenery in the world, which sometimes were coupled with challenging walking conditions in the famous Patagonian winds. Our Tour Leader, Herve, provided excellent organization and adaptability to issues that arose during the 2 week trip. Great accommodation and sustenance, comfortable transport in minibus and ferries. Highly recommended.”

“Superb trip, flexible organization, great food, accommodation, guides & bikes. An interesting variety of activities & enough spare time to feel that you weren't too rushed. Obviously, things like the weather & the number & variety of animals are variable & cannot be controlled. 1 of the best of many cycling tours I have done in several countries - I couldn't fault it!”
