I was here with my friends last December and I must say, our expedition to Everest base camp was one of the most memorable moments in my life!

Suresh was very accommodating to us and he was a great host while we were in Kathmandu. I highly recommend getting Rakesh as a guide, he is the epitome of greatness!

My husband & I were part of a small group of 11 who completed the Garden of England tour in August. A great bunch of people and our guide Tony helped make our journey enjoyable, even making a couple of detours to accommodate guests' requests. Fresh fruit & choices were a nice surprise. Thank you Tony & Backroads.

      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.

      About Back-Roads Touring

      Back-Roads Touring, rebranded as Blue-Roads in November 2018 for the North American market, offers boutique small group tours around the world.

      What Makes Back-Roads (Blue-Roads) Touring Stand Out?

      They stick to a very small group size, which allows them to offer truly authentic and local experiences. Their guides have extensive local knowledge and connection, and touring with them is like visiting a good friend who can’t wait to show you the best hidden gems and introduce you to their culture and history.

      Who Will Enjoy Traveling With Back-Roads (Blue-Roads) Touring?

      Travelers who feel adverse to large groups, and maybe aren’t sure if group travel is for them should definitely take a look through the itineraries offered by Back-Roads. Groups are kept very small - with a max of 18.

      The age range often skews a bit older - catering to active and adventurous 50+ travelers eager for a relaxing yet invigorating trip. However travelers anywhere from the mid 30s and above will enjoy traveling with them. Especially if you’re the type of traveler for whom the more party-focused companies that serve the 18-30 range are not appealing.

      Top Destinations

      Back-Roads offers itineraries around the world, though they are especially well known for UK and Europe travel. You can find trips throughout the UK and Ireland, Europe - including the Nordic and Baltic countries. They also provide some Asia tours, primarily in the southeast (Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia).

      Back-Roads (Blue-Roads) Touring Travel Style

      Groups are small, and the activities range from easy walks or hikes to visits to cultural and historical sites. They offer a few broad themes, such as battlefield tours, culinary tours, sailing tours, history tours, and nature tours.

      Accommodations with Back-Roads are generally in local and traditional hotels or guest houses. These usually have stairs, and are sometimes old buildings - you may encounter funky showers and not have the luxury of an elevator. They advise that you should be able to carry your luggage up and down flights of stairs.

      Why Choose Back-Roads (Blue-Roads) Touring?

      The small group tour experience is at its best with companies like Back-Roads. They provide top notch customer service and guides, dedicated to showing you the best of what a country has to offer. For travelers who want a chance to experience a new place through local eyes, as well as learn the history and enjoy good food and company - within a wide age range - Back-Roads is a great choice.
