Fiona's review for another Explore tour
“If felt like we missed a lot of things:
1.Cycling down from mount Nebo
2.Cycling the kings highway
3.The off road cycling in the desert
4.The coffee demonstration in the camp
5. The church in Madaba
While some of this was due to weather and so out of your control it wasnt clear what we got instead to replace these missed experiences.

Helen's review for another Explore tour
“Nepal was an amazing country with such diversity and so much culture to learn about. Seeing the mountains on the trek was a huge highlight. Its worth understanding that being in the mountains is unpredictable so the weather can change quickly & mountain views can vary too. If people feel the cold, they should consider bringing heat pads & plenty of layers to use in the tea houses. Changing money at the airport was the best value & ease although ATMs were available in the cities .A walking pole was essential on the trek as was very helpful while descending the many steps especially after rain. Our guide Udaya was very knowledgeable & able to assist us in any way needed throughout the trip. We felt very safe everywhere we travelled. Our group really got on well which helped to have a very relaxed & enjoyable time . There was so many amazing highlights, watching sunrise over the Annapurna range, meeting a rhino on our nature walk, white water rafting, colourful temples & very genuine locals.”
