We spent way too much time squashed on a bus. 3 star hotels and no time to enjoy our locations as we arrived in the dark and left early morning. Not well planned and not worth the money we paid. Really disappointing. Will not be recommending Albatross Tours!

My partner Mike Coulthard and I would like to express our gratitude to Helen Sheehan (our tour manager) and Ermano (our coach driver) for the service provided on the Italian Grande Tour departure date 27 September 2015 to ensure that we had a wonderful memorable tour.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the tour and have found the variety in the places we have visited gave us a wonderful overview of Italy as it really is.
Helen worked hard to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves, offering suggestions for things to do, places to see and where tk eat in our down time. Helen also organized other treats on our behalf to make the trip more enjoyable including:
*An opera trip in Montecatini
*A gondola ride in Venice
*A wonderful dinner in Maiori at the Norman Tower
*As well as treats in board the coach such as rum chocolates and Baci chocolates.
We found Helen to have an intimate knowledge of the places we visited and she was always willing to share further information that she had sourced along the way.
We were also extremely appreciative that Helen had the foresight to change our program at times to ensure that outdoor activities were completed in the best possible weather.
We would like to also give kudos to Helen in how she managed a variety of different personalities on the tour and always with a smile.
Our driver Ermanno endeared himself to the tour group with his hearty buongiorno's each morning, courtesy and care for his passengers and precision driving in some very tight places and precarious roads. We were amazed at what he could do with our coach on tiny Italian Roads. Thankyou Ermanno for being part of our touring family...
We found the ability to stay at least a couple of nights in one spot (and these not being major cities) to be a wonderful help in obtaining a feel for the real Italy. We loved the family atmosphere of all of the hotels we stayed at during our trip and would be happy to return to each and every hotel if the opportunity presents itself in the future...
Overall we would have no hesitation in recommending Albatross Tours to friends or family. In fact we are hoping to be able to travel again with Albatross in the near future when we next visit Europe...

The Italian Grande tour is one of the best tours I have been on. Our tour finishes in Rome in two days time and so far everything has been great. Our tour guide Helen has done a wonderful job keeping everything running to schedule and trying to deal with everyone's wants. Our hotels have been more than satisfactory and the staff very friendly and helpful. Our coach driver has been very professional but always ready for a laugh. Everyone has different experiences on tour but I have nothing but praise for Helen and Albatross Tours for delivering on a great tour in the Italian Grande.

Lantang valley trek was amazing. Everything was well managed and easy going. Sunrise adventure trek was a wonderful company they make everything was sure and safe. So I would like to come next time with this company for Everest base camp trek. I highly recommend everyone to use this company.

We had a wonderful experience with Sunrise Adventure Trek on our Annapurna Circuit trek last month. Our guide Ramesh was very good and very knowledgeable about the region, culture, flora fauna . Great value for money, with comfortable accommodation and outstanding food. I'd definitely use this company again.

My friend and I recently traveled to Nepal from the United States and had an amazing experience trekking to Annapurna Base Camp with sunrise adventure travel! We met Suresh in Kathmandu and he was incredibly helpful in setting up our trek and accommodation/activities in Pokhara post trek. Our guide, Palman (aka Paul) was amazing as well!! He was knowledgeable, patient, trustworthy, and kept us laughing with his hilarious sense of humor (which matched our own spot on!). Everything worked out exactly as Suresh promised that it would and he checked in before and after the trek to make sure that we were pleased with how things were going. We definitely felt that we were in good hands with both gentleman and would highly recommend Sunrise Adventure Travel. The prices were very fair and our experience was unbeatable. Thanks again, SAT!

About Albatross Tours

Founded in 1995, Australia based Albatross Tours specializes in guided Europe travel for small to large groups.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They offer premium coach tours through a select number of European countries. Their tours are enjoyed by Australians and New Zealanders which gives them even more focus and a great place to make new friends.

Who Travels With Them?

Their tours are attended by Australians and New Zealanders. All tours are capped at 28 people, though the average size is usually 22. On rarer occasions, groups may be as small as 11-12, but if you’re looking for a group that intimate, it’s not the standard with Albatross. They are best suited to older travelers, aged 45 and up.

Where Do They Operate?

They operate throughout Europe, mainly in Western and Central Europe.

Why Travel With Them?

For a coach tour experience of Europe, led by experts, where you’ll travel in comfort and ease - seeing both major attractions and more off the beaten track locations as well. They always offer a good balance of free time to guided activities on their tours, so they are perfect if you enjoy the idea of planning some independent activities.

About Sunrise Adventure

Sunrise Adventures specializes in trekking tours in Nepal, but also offer trekking and sightseeing in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Nepal is a classic trekking destination and Sunrise Adventures local guides have years of professional experience guiding and walking challenging multi-day treks. They offer assistance not only on the trail, but pre and post travel as well, including visa support and hotel booking. 24 hour customer service is available during your travel - including safety support such as helicopter rescue.

Who Travels With Them?

Trekking is not for the faint of heart! Both literally and figuratively. Most of their trips are quite challenging, and you will be hiking in altitude. Most of their tours, if not fully focused on trekking, have an adventure component whether it be bungee jumping or whitewater rafting. These kinds of tours are most suited to young travelers seeking excitement with a dose of culturally enriching activities as well. Groups and individual travelers are welcome.

Where Do They Operate?

Primarily they are known for their Nepal treks, which range from the famous Everest variations to lesser known areas. However they also offer a variety of adventure trips in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

Why Travel With Them?

Trips are all conducted by local guides, and they have many years of expertise leading the challenging multi-day treks. They are also an eco conscious tour company for those looking to minimize their carbon footprint while traveling. You can also feel good about helping the local communities as a portion of the profits when you book your trip go toward social services such as helping orphanages and local charities.
