Annapurna and Tilicho Lake

What a fantastic trip! Really really great, what an adventure and what a fantastic team we had looking after us! There was never any doubt that we were save and more than well cared for. I was absolutely amazed at how easy and little fuss was made over my dietary requirements. They were reconfirmed at the beginning and that was the last I heard of it, it was all sorted. I have stayed in 5 star hotels in the past where ensuring my food was wheat and dairy free was a big hassle, yet your team managed to make it entirely easy and hassle free despite being in the back of beyond - I honestly can not praise them high enough.

Cork Coast Cycle

Quiet roads lined with wild, deeply scented flowers, plunging coastline and rural landscapes, this tour encapsulates the essence of southern Ireland, from rolling green fields to spectacular coastal rides. West Cork is also best known for its colourful villages all of which are brightly painted in a wonderful array of vibrant colours, with hanging baskets brimming with flowers out the front of every pub and shop. This is the more cosmopolitan part of rural Ireland with many choosing to settle in this idyllic setting. After a visit to the colourful town of Kinsale, where artists mingle with fishermen, the cycle route heads to Bantry. This town is situated beneath the sheltering hills at the head of famous Bantry Bay, one of the most beautiful bays along the Irish coasts. The route then heads inland to Killarney, the gateway to the Ring of Kerry. Staying in specially handpicked B&Bs and Inns, the trip offers a full Irish cultural experience.
