I started working with Liz on the Jewel of the Cyclades tour then had Franny as my travel coordinator. Both were friendly, responsive and very helpful.

We sailed on the ship Galileo, a tall ship, a classic motored sailor. The ship was of Greek registry which proved to be very beneficial. The captain and his mates were also Greek, as was our guide, Joseph. All were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and super service oriented. The ship was clean and well maintained and the itinerary was well planned. We had a fabulous time (we were an extensss family of 6) and were fortunate to have a great ship filled with warm, friendly guests from around the world. Food and service were all fabulous. A great way to see these beautiful islands. I would definitely use Adventure Life again.

Kassandra and Franny facilitated a complicated adventure with a personal dedication and care to meet the wishes of myself and my son on a Quark Expedition to the Southern Ocean via the Falklands, Elephant island, South Georgia, the South Shetlands the Antarctic Peninsular and the Continent lasting about a month. Every aspect of the travel was accomplished without a hitch and every bit of detailed information they provided proved to be vital.
The Quark expedition was recommended by Franny and again met every aspect of our personal expectations. A truly remarkable, once-in-a-lifetime experience that was enhanced by the knowledge and professionals at Adventure Life.

I just returned from a month-long adventure in the Indian Ocean. It began in the Seychelles on a four-day cruise on Variety's Pegasus where we visited several islands, explored shallow waterways and swam and snorkeled. The small (42 guests) catamaran was perfect for such excursions. I then spent two days alone in Mahe (the largest island) during which time I explored on my own. The next step of my adventure was flying to the Maldives where I boarded Silversea's ship, the Silver Discoverer. This luxury liner had only 72 guests and was small enough to feel cozy while still offering amazing accommodations and pampering. Aboard the Discoverer, we sailed to some remote (and uninhabited) islands in the Maldvies archipelago, using the Zodiacs to reach some amazing beaches and reefs. The experts on board (ornithologists, marine biologists, anthropologists, etc) made sure we were well-versed in the wildlife and culture we encountered. After we left the Maldives, we sailed to the islands of Southern India to experience a combination of culture and nature. I ended my stay in Colombo on my own, taking private tours of the city arranged by Adventure Life, including my favorite, a walking "foodie" tour in which we sampled various Sri Lankan street foods. Last spring I stumbled upon Adventure Life, and simply told them what I wanted (to visit places in the Indian Ocean where I had never been). They tailored my adventure to my specific wants and needs (a solo, older, female traveler), and put together this great itenerary. Franny worked with me before and during the trip, and when minor hiccups occurred during the stay, she was easily accessible to answer my questions and find solutions. All in all, a great trip arranged by a company who cares about its travelers and is willing to work with them to design the perfect adventure!

This trek is definitely worth it. It might take a week to trek from start to finish but it is worth every step. The day we got to the base camp was very difficult but only because it started the hail, then snow in the last couple hours of trekking. Apart from that the trek was amazing. The views were amazing and I got to see thing i never would have at home.

We chose Annapurna Base Camp because the trek has a lower risk of altitude sickness that Everest Base Camp.
The trek was still quite challenging with many mountains to climb over (the guide called them hills ha ha) before we eventually started to follow the valley line up the mountains towards Base Camp. The accommodation was pretty basic (tea houses) in each village we stopped and the temperature kept getting lower the more we climbed. But once we got to base camp the view was amazing and we were so glad that we decided to do this trip. It was pretty hard, but the memories of being surrounded by some of the tallest mountains in the world was worth all the effort.
I would recommend that trip to anybody with a moderate level of fitness

    About Epic Adventures

    Epic Adventures offers in depth Nepal tours, as well as tours that feature Bhutan, Tibet, and India.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    They provide a way for you to experience rural and remote Himalayan life, from a local perspective. Their main focus is on hiking tours, where you’ll meet local communities and learn about the mountain cultures. They have an experienced and international team, dedicated to ensuring the safety and enjoyment of all their travelers.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Their tours are open to all ages, but travelers should be in good physical shape. Their treks and peak climbs are offered in a variety of durations and are all led by extremely experienced guides. Trekking in these environments requires a certain amount of endurance and skill, so travelers should know very clearly the level of the trek or peak climb they choose.

    Where Do They Operate?

    They are very specially focused in Nepal, with tours also offered in Bhutan, Tibet, and India. Multiple treks and peak climbs are available.

    Why Travel With Them?

    If you are looking for a lot of variety to choose from for your next Nepal trek, they certainly would be a good place to start. This kind of travel depends on a company that puts safety and guide knowledge first, and Epic Adventures takes this aspect very seriously. They also take care to ensure that all their tours fulfill the commandments of sustainable and responsible travel. Especially important for the area of the world they specialize in.
