We want to thank Alpine Eco Trek for the most wonderful trek that we had this month in Nepal. From the first letter that Ram Kumar sent me in answer to my request for a trail in Nepal, I realized that I was immediately understood and his answers were always to the point and understanding. Ram complied a very good trail for us.

We were promised and supplied with an excellent guide and wonderful porter. Both guys were sweet, sensitive, caring, interesting and entertaining. They took care of our every need in the most gently way, treating us with the utmost respect and care to make sure that we enjoyed our trek. We walked very slowly, enjoying every inch of the way, every monkey and bird and the guys always made us feel that whatever we did was fine. We made some small changes to the program to suit our walking and that too was fine with the guys.

Their English was good and their willingness to tell us about their upbringing and their lives they lead, gave us good insight into Nepal culture.

Having met many porters and guides of other trekkers on the way, we came to see and understand that we were given the best guide and porter and, thanks to them, we had the most amazing trek of the Heritage Langtang trail.

When we got back to Katmandu and we went to the office of Alpine Eco Trek for advise, all the team helped and assisted us in every possible way.

Alpine Eco Trek is an excellent company and we certainly recommend trekking with the help of this company.

Mission Eco Trek's trekking trip to Sagarmatha National Park was extremely pleasant and unforgettable adventure for me. I would give grade 10.5 out of 10 to Mission Eco Trek staff for making my time excellent at Everest.

Mission Eco Trek was exceptional since the beginning. I was searching for cheap and short option for Base Camp Trek. Eco Trek was cheapest option, but in addition, also food and flights to Lukla were included. I was always receiving polite and very informative replies from Jitendra and never had to ask anything twice.

Before departing to Lukla I was invited to the office to talk about practicalities and meet my guide Dhamsingh and from the first moments, I was feeling comfortable with my guide. He was not only kind, flexible and well-aware of all the routes and practicalities in National Park, but he was doing extra and tried to make my experience special all the time. When Dhamsingh realized that I had good stamina, he adjusted the route so that we were able to see more things than it was planned originally. For instance, we visited monastery villages of Thamo and Thame and during our stay in villages on the way to EBC he showed me special places in each village during evenings. He always was keen on explaining and discussing with me specialties of Nepal.

I had feeling that I was trekking with a friend that was having fun with me. I would without doubts recommend these people as your travel guides for your trek, if you are thinking of it.

I hope to be back in Nepal in few years time and do something special again with Mission Eco Trek.

Super fun! First time here with our 1 year old son and he enjoyed it and it even made us feel like kids again since we were able to join him in the play area! Food was ok for the price. Surprised that the pizza tasted better than some cheap pizza shops. But overall we would definitely make the trip back to this place.

We were extremely happy with how each and every minor/major logistics were taken care of during our entire trip to Peru. Starting from the planning phase, Andrew and Garvey of Lost World were with us revising the itinerary multiple times until it met with our comfort level. This was our very first time of hiring a professional travel agency for organizing our vacation at the international location, so you can imagine the degree of anxiety we had about our trip at the beginning. Andrew kept assuring us that you will know as soon as you reach there that you are in good hands. That turned out to be true word-by-word. At every airport we were met with someone who was assigned to take us to the hotels, and each time the individual left only after making sure that we were all set. Throughout our trip we always find the people attending us (the guides, transfer and drivers) very prompt, professional and courteous. One problem we experienced though that many a times the individuals assigned to us were not very proficient in English. This was quite limiting but nevertheless was countered with the help of google translator and very enthusiastic personnel who were genuinely eager to help. The guides (Natalie in Sacred valley and Cusco; Sergio at the Matchu Pitchu) who went with us to various excursion tours were knowledgeable, entertaining and very very friendly. The cars were in really great conditions, roomy and very clean - in fact one of the drivers used to keep the black synthetic floors spotless by wiping our dusty footprints every single time we stepped out. The location of each hotel was prime, which was truly important for us particularly when we were on tight schedule and has no clue about the orientation of touristy hot spots and down town plazas. Perhaps this is unique to the south american setting, but we struggled a little with the 'Vouchers' - something that you paid for that does not go in to the system automatically when you check-in at the hotels. However, our escorts/hotel front desk people were very much aware of it and they helped us almost all of those time. All of the city tour tickets were booked and given to us as soon as we landed in Peru. I want to mention that we were moved by Carlos, our transfer guy in Cusco, who went over on each single thing included in our itinerary while we were driving from the airport to the hotel on our first day. He did that so sincerely while also telling us about the people/history and geography of Peru. I also remember, he wanted to accompany us up to the Vistadome train, but was stopped at the gate (and desperately argued with them to let him do that). Our food restrictions were varied -from nothing to vegan- it was addressed meticulously at the lodge in Amazon Forests, without us reminding them about it. Other places already had appropriate options in their menus. Our itinerary was not overwhelmingly busy - it had some leisure times and times for shopping or just walking around on our own carefully planted, which we liked the most. At one point, we needed to cancel one of the excursion while there at Matchu Pitchu pretty late in the night (due to some health issues; we were supposed to be at the bus stop terribly early AM), we reached out to the emergency contact number of Lost World and they promptly and rapidly helped us with it. We can go on and on to tell you how much we enjoyed the excellent services provided by Lost World - it only enhanced our appreciation of Peru in its entirety.
Thank you so much, we appreciate all your help and look forward to go on to the next vacation with you.

    About Trek Travel

    Founded in 2003, Trek Travel is a great option for hobby cyclists as well as die-hards. Their trips are specifically designed to cater to multiple types of traveler.

    What Makes Trek Travel Stand Out?

    • Large selection of tours
    • Large selection of high quality bikes
    • Multiple daily ride options
    • Minimum of two Trek Travel guides per tour

    Part of their mission is to “make adventure accessible” and they pride themselves on helping bikers and travelers see the world in comfort and fun.

    Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Trek Travel?

    • Ages 18+
    • Ages 6+ on family trips
    • All cycling skill levels
    • Lovers of the great outdoors

    They cater to the individual, aiming to make everyone’s riding experience enjoyable. If you only feel like riding half a day, and spending the rest relaxing, they can accommodate!

    There are two levels of pricing to accommodate for varying budgets. Since they attract a wide range of customers, you’ll be sure to find yourself in a dynamic and fun group of people. You’ll meet people from all over the world that share an interest in biking and travel.

    Top Destinations

    • Europe
    • North America
    • Latin America
    • Asia Pacific
    large and tall green mountains in France

    Their trips often take place off the beaten path. So not only will you find yourself in the midst of untouched countrysides and mountainscapes, but you’ll discover hidden gems along the way.

    Casually ride through the picturesque town of Grazalema and try some local cabernet on a Trek Travel Spain tour. Or challenge yourself to climb legendary alps, such as Alpe d’Huez and Galibier on one of Trek Travel’s tours in France.

    Trek Travel Style

    Although they are known for biking, they offer so much more than just a cycling vacation. Itineraries offer plenty of activity options every day if you want to have a day off your bike. Cultural and culinary related activities are offered such as wine tasting, pizza making, and historic walking tours. If you enjoy being active, choose from activities like sailing and kayaking.

    All breakfasts are included so you’ll have the energy needed to cycle all day. After a long day of riding you are treated to cocktails, dinner, and comfortable accommodation.

    Accommodations are categorized either by explorer or luxury. With explorer, you’ll be placed in casual 3-star boutique hotels. The amenities may be simple, but you’ll still get incredible views, delicious cuisine, and the utmost relaxation.

    If you prefer the luxury option, expect handpicked 4-star accommodations that include signature spa treatments and Michelin-starred restaurants. Imagine resting in a historic hotel nestled deep in the woods of the Tramuntana Mountains on a tour to Spain with Trek Travel.

    Every tour with Trek Travel  is categorized by different “rider types”:

    Leisure: You are relatively fit but don’t want to ride everyday of your vacation. You’d like to balance cycling with exploration and relaxation time. Expect slight inclines and roughly 1-2 hours of riding.

    Recreational: You bike on a somewhat regular basis - maybe to work, for fun on the weekends, or for fitness. Expect steep rollers and short mountains. You’ll ride for roughly 2-3 hours per day.

    Active: You bike regularly for a few hours on a weekly basis. If fitness is a big part of your life and you like a good challenge, you’ll fit right into the active level tours. You’ll climb hills,  mountains, and everything in between for 3-4 hours per day.

    Avid: You ride 100 miles per week and enjoy riding at a fast pace for long hours. Perhaps you regularly train or race. If you believe no road is too steep, and no route is too long, then these trips are made for you.

    Why Choose a Tour with Trek Travel?

    • Guaranteed dates and trip prices *for most trips - some special trips need more people to run
    • Offline gps map, itinerary, and guide and hotel contacts on your phone
    • Partnership with Trek bike store

    What you want to get out of the vacation, they strive to provide. Every day you can choose how far you want to ride, and what activities you’d like to partake in. The Trek Travel guides have extensive experience and knowledge, both in bike maintenance and leading tours. Trek Travel provides the perfect combination of luxury and activity, as you make the trip your own.
