Took a family vacation to Yellowstone last month with Austin Adventures and had the most amazing time! Kasey and Zach were awesome guides who really went above and beyond to assure my family enjoyed every minute as well as maximized our potential to experience as much as possible in the 4 days we were there; I wish we could have stayed longer! We left Yellowstone feeling that this was our best family vacation ever! Thank you Zach, Kasey, and Austin Adventures! Have a great summer.

Just got back from the Yellowstone/Tetons trip, our first with Austin Adventures, but definitely not our last. Our guides Carrie and James set the perfect tone and kept our spirits up despite some rainy days. I highly recommend this tour company and look forward to more adventures with them!

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 Austin Adventures

Founded in 1974, Austin Adventures specializes in unique cultural and adventurous travel around the world. The company is now under the umbrella of the Xanterra Parks and Resorts Corporation, which runs lodges in numerous U.S. national parks.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They are a classic example of the word “adventure” not meaning intense high adventure like bungee jumping, but more like the adventure a safari would be, or glamping along the Inca Trail. They have a mantra of “spend less, travel more,” and offer many different ways you can find discounted trips. Their maximum group size is 12 people, and they split their itineraries into “Adult Adventures”, “Family Adventures”, and “Custom Trips”.

Who Travels With Them?

Families, couples, small groups of friends, and solo travelers will find something to enjoy in browsing their itineraries. Older travelers especially may enjoy the balance of luxury and outdoor activity.

Where Do They Operate?

Austin Adventures has a large offering of trips in North America  as well as itineraries in Europe, Central & South America, Africa, and Asia. You'll still find plenty of offerings in the U.S. West -- from Yellowstone National Park to the Black Hills of South Dakota -- but now you can also go hiking in Patagonia or join a desert safari in Namibia.

How Does It Work?

Austin Adventures limits their tour groups to 12 on Adult Adventures and 18 on Family Adventures. Accommodations are authentic and provide a real sense of the destination you’re traveling to, such as national park lodges. Most meals are included in the price of the trip apart from one, which adds a bit of flexibility. All of Austin’s guides are first aid certified and experts in their given region.

Why Travel With Them?

If you’re looking for an active or multisport trip but don’t want to ‘rough it’ too much, then Austin Adventures might be a good fit for you. Although you travel with a small group, they focus on making sure the pace of the tour allows for you to experience what you’re interested in. And if you’d rather not travel in a group, they can also help you design a custom private itinerary for you and friends.

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.
