Once again our World Expeditions trip was everything we wanted it to be5.0 January 2019
The guides and staff were excellent and the food cooked by the trek staff amazing and plentiful.
An excellent way to see the two countries4.0 January 2019
Be prepared though; cycling for several days in a row (50-75km per day) in this environment is tough, if you're not prepared. The guides and their teams were good. Lots of information and happy to answer most questions. We were a bit pressed for time some days and didn't get as much time to stop and take photos as I would have liked. Overall, well worth it.Read more
