I was blessed to experience Grand Tour of Italy just a few weeks ago. It was the most amazing time of my life. I am already planning my next trip. The tour guide, the bus driver, the group, the hotels, the tours, the provided meals, the total experience was better than I could ever have expected. I never felt unsafe in my travels. I would recommend Go Ahead to anyone. Thank you, again!

Went on the America the Beautiful tour in September which started and ended in Denver. It was such an amazing trip in terms of sights and people. We went to national parks such as Yellowstone where saw bison and elk, Arches with beautiful rock formations, and Mount Rushmore. We travel 6 states and over 2600 miles in 12 days. Our tour director, Stevyn Polk, was so informative ,knowledgeable and with a good sense of humor that I and my fellow travelers all are hoping to travel with him again. My fellow travelers bonded during our experience and when I left, felt that I left family. All of which I would love to see and share experiences with again.

The Go Ahead team took such good care of us throughout the trip. Always on time, total comfortable, great recommendations on our free days. The included and optional side excursions they planned were fabulous. It was a true vacation to be able to sit back and just enjoy. Food and wine - excellent. Can't wait for my upcoming trip to experience Ireland with them.

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 Go Ahead Tours

    Go Ahead Tours offers guided group tours around the world and on all seven continents. With 25 years of experience, they've built up an impressive array of itineraries and guides. 

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Groups never number more than 35 and may be as few as 14. Go Ahead calls this their 'Right Size Advantage.' A number of specialty trips include food and wine tours, religious heritage tours, family tours, nature & wildlife tours, and walking tours. They will also take you to special events such as Oktoberfest in Germany, Carnival in Venice, or New England fall foliage tours. 

    As part of EF, Education First, Go Ahead tours specialize in cultural immersion and making connections, whether with locals or other tour members. 

    Go Ahead Tours also promises value: if you can find a similar tour at a cheaper price, they'll match it, making it a good choice for budget travelers.  

    Who Travels With Them?

    Go Ahead is based in the US, and thus attracts mostly American travelers to their trips. Their age range is varied, but most travelers tend to be middle aged.  

    Where Do They Operate?

    Go Ahead offers a wide array of trips to over 100 countries on all 7 continents. Popular destinations include Italy, France, and the United Kingdom. They also offer trips to South America, Asia, and Africa.  

    Why Travel With Them?

    Go Ahead is backed by EF, one of the largest travel companies in the US, so has extensive resources at hand when creating their itineraries. They also use a combination of a 'western' tour director plus a selection of local guides, giving the traveler a glimpse into local life while still maintaining quality and comfort. 

    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.
