“I had heard about this trip and was looking for a trip that was a little different to others I have done. The trip was above and beyond any expectations I had. Our tour leader and local guides were amazing and gave us a experience of a life time. I would recommend this trip with Sundowners. A trip to remember.”

“We thoroughly enjoyed Mountains and Monasteries. It comprehensively covered everything possible to see and do. The tour leader was outstanding and organisation faultless. We now have a better understanding and appreciation of 3 different cultures, their history and geography and aspects of a shared past. We highly recommend the tour.”
