Over the last 10 years, we have cycled with Great Explorations six times in five different countries. Great guides, superb scenery, wonderful food, interesting cultural tours, excellent accommodation, faultless logistics, enthusiastic fellow cyclists… how are you going to top that next time?

Our second Italian trip with Great Explorations. We toured Puglia with one other couple so the guide was able to make changes to suit us. Every trip has a few niggles: this time a couple of minor bike problems which were fixed promptly.
Once again, ideal for those of us in our 60's who want more comfort than backpackers but not expensive 5 star bling. We have used several cycling companies during 25 years of cycle touring and GE remains our favourite.

Just finished the wonderful Prague to Vienna trip with Great Explorations (GE) and Veronika as my guide. There is no better way to see the Czech Republic and Austria than through this bike trip with GE! Veronika makes this trip so unique and special. Her knowledge of the area, the people she knows, and constant patience and cheerfulness sets apart this company from others. My guide, the unique opportunities I was given (oh the food!!!) and my AMAZING bike were everything I was looking for and more. I will definitely be using Great Explorations again for my next adventure!!!

A year late in sharing my review. Enjoyed a stellar trip in Piedmont, Italy last May (2013). A wonderful guide (part Italian) and support crew, beautiful scenery, amazing food (and wine) and the villa's and accommodation were great. A one-stop shop solution for busy people seeking a reliably great holiday with fun, interesting history and culture, great gear, routes and interactive touring! Our group of friends had the added bonus of entertainment and team spirit provided by the one and only Great Explorations founder/owner - Robbin! I look forward to my next trip!

      About Elite Luxury Kenya

      Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

      Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
