I've dreamed of visiting Japan since I was a little girl. I reached out to Audley for a brochure on a whim, but when I heard from their Japan specialist I knew I just had to go. From the initial planning, it was always so fun talking to our specialist. It never felt like I was being pressured, it felt so relaxed as if I was talking to a friend. They handled everything and I just got to enjoy the excitement and not worry about anything.
When my husband and I arrived in Japan, there was a representative waiting for us to show us around and take us to a car waiting at the airport. As this was our first international trip, we were tired after the long 13+ hour flight. It was nice to not have to worry about navigating our way in a foreign country and have the convenience of being taken straight to our hotel. We had guided tours, as well as time to explore independently. It was nice to know that we were never alone and that help was always just a phone call away if we needed it, as well as feeling independent to change our plans as we wanted. We visited Tokyo, Yudanaka, Kyoto, Nara, Miyajima, Hiroshima, Osaka, and back to Tokyo.
We got to have so many extraordinary experiences and the landscapes were just gorgeous! The people were so nice and very helpful when we got turned around. I highly recommend Audley. They treat you like family, the entire experience is really so lighthearted and fun, and they plan trips entirely around you want to see, do, and even recommend things you may not have thought of on your own. We will most definitely be returning for another trip in the future!

Audley gave us plenty of assistance in completing our itinerary to the Galapagos. We look forward to our 2019 trip. The Audley expert on Ecuador gave us plenty of guidance.

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

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    They provide a way for you to experience rural and remote Himalayan life, from a local perspective.

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.

    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.
