Simon's review for another Explore tour
“This was the most expensive (by far) holiday I've ever taken and it exceeded expectations. We were fortunate that the group of 7 + guide all got along very well together.There's a comment on your website from a previous trip that there wasn't enough walking, and this was a concern for me in advance, but looking back I think it was just right for me. The members of the group had different walking capacities, and our guide ensured we were each able to achieve our respective goals.”

“We thoroughly enjoyed this trip with both the cultural and wildlife aspects, all enhanced by an excellent tour leader. We felt it was an advantage going to the smaller tiger reserves and we had nine tiger sightings”
