Incredible trip to New England for my wife and me

Brownell planned an incredible trip to New England for my wife and me. Brownell’s level of professionalism and deep knowledge of the destination was extremely impressive. When something came up a week before the trip, we had to postpone our departure by a day. Our Coordinator quickly made the adjustments to the itinerary without a hitch, avoiding what would have been a stressful situation had we booked on our own. Brownell is a Four Seasons Preferred Partner and in the Virtuoso network, so we had upgrades and added amenities throughout the trip and were treated like VIPs.

The view from our upgraded room at the Four Seasons in Boston was amazing, overlooking Boston Common and the Public Garden. The White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport was beyond our expectations, with another upgrade, a spa experience and an unbelievable dinner.

Each Maine hotel had its own ambiance, from the rustic structure of the White Barn Inn to a wide-angle view of the ocean at the Inn by the Sea. The Inn at Sunrise Point was an especially inviting place with wonderful breakfasts served by the owner and cozy, warm accommodations in a cottage with a private deck looking out on beautiful West Penobscot Bay.

Our Brownell Travel Coordinator did a fantastic job for us, and we can’t wait for Brownell to plan our next adventure!

Brownell planned a special birthday trip and booked a hotel for a business trip, and my Advisor took each trip to the next level. Brownell is one of the most professional companies I have ever worked with, and their knowledge and industry relationships cannot be beat. Highlights from my birthday trip in Chicago include an upgraded room at The Peninsula and a chilled bottle of champagne and cake waiting when I arrived. When I returned to Chicago for business a few month later, I didn't expect much from a simple hotel booking, but I was wrong. Brownell is a Four Seasons Preferred Partner, and I was upgraded to a gorgeous 1-bedroom suite with a sweeping view of Lake Michigan. Plus in both hotels I had access to Virtuoso amenities and was treated like a VIP! If you need a hotel booking or are planning a big trip, Brownell is the agency to use!

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

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.

        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.
