I am not sure what others experience with this company. My wife and I have booked a trip to Thailand and Burma for 10 days. The agency charged us about 950$ a day just for hotels, guides and internal flights. As soon as we paid, problems started: the agent switched hotel to a cheaper one (3 stars). This was just the start in we're only in day 3 of our trip: the hotel room was wrong - the hotel had to scramble in the middle of the night, the agent booked a full day trip within a few hours after we got off a 21 hour flight for no apparent reason, we're currently sitting in 3rd class on the train without AC because apparently almost a thousand a day can't get you a driver in Thailand, did I mention a 6 hour layover on new year eve at the local airport with nothing to do?
The only time they were quick to reply when they needed a credit card number. I sent them an email a few days but no one bothered to reply, including supposedly 24 hour reply center.

A truly memorable holiday which ran like clockwork from start to finish. Kangaroos, wallabies, Koalas and sea-lions on Kangaroo Island with knowledgeable guides, wonderful, fresh local food and wine and great hosts at our accommodation. More kangaroos and beautiful mountain walks up in the Grampians national park then the stunning scenery of the Great Ocean Road. Christmas in Sydney - rainforest canopy walk in the Lamington national park - before New a Year on The Gold Coast - above and beyond everything we hoped for - well done Audley!

Although we started our plans a year in advance, several problems/errors on their part were only recognized and "fixed" 3 weeks before we left. Specialist help was sporadic, employee turnover is a problem and actual time in office is limited. Great place to work because management will support you no matter how badly you mess up and you don't actually have to go to work! Price of trip doubled from initial inquiry and cost was outrageous. Our best days were our free days or activities we planned ourselves. Mistakes were made with flights, hotel reservations, and transports between places. Emergency phone number to contact Audley didn't work! Although we made the best of the situation and managed to have a great time in spit of Audley's planning and choices, I would NEVER recommend them or travel with them again. As experienced traveler, I expect more from an agency then price and service we received from Audley..

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 Audley Travel

Founded in 1996, Audley grew out of the desire to help travelers see the world in their own way, using expertly crafted individual journeys.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

With Audley you have the peace of mind that comes from speaking directly to a travel specialist who works to create an itinerary specifically designed to you. They consider all factors from your interests to the budget you’re looking to spend. They see the process through from inception to departure, and are available for questions all throughout your trip.

Who Travels With Them?

Travelers interested in working with a travel specialist who will help make your trip personal and individual.

Where Do They Operate?

Audley creates their tailor-made itineraries for over 75 destinations on every continent.

Why Travel With Them?

Audley presents the inspiration, allowing you decide the type of trip you want to have. Then they take it a step further, allowing you to fully customize and personalize your experience. Dedicated travel specialists are available to help you along every step of the way. No matter your budget or interests, each trip is designed with absolute quality in mind.

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.
