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.

Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.

Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.

Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.

I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.

Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.

Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.

Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.

Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

We did a 12 day comprehensive custom tour of Ladakh. We had great time. The trip was well organised and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The guide was excellent and the driver was good especially in the roads in remote areas. Safe Hands and Rohit were available when we needed them.

    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.
