We took our first bird watching trip to Colombia, with Cheeseman's, and LOVED it. The guides were excellent (and fun! we are still in touch on FaceBook); the accommodations and travel arrangements were perfect (clean, quiet, pleasant). We saw hundreds of new bird species, loved walking throughout the jungles of the Andes ... and also got to sample quite a bit of Colombia itself with visits to several iconic towns such as Cali and Manizales; working with local guides; meeting a local botanist at his organic farm. The food was a little drab, but that's simply the local fare in Colombia and not to be helped at small lodges way out in the middle of the forest ... but happily our guide brought along some delicious spices for those of us who like more flavor.

My old prof from DeAnza is the best. If you are interested in wildlife and have a thing for biology, this is the group for you. I went on countless whale watching trips and safari in Tanzania. Every trip was awesome.

My husband and I went to Tanzania and Kenya with Cheesemans' in February 2014. There is no substitute for experience . Doug and Gail Cheeseman created an exceptional and flawless experience for us. We trusted them with our lifelong dream trip to Africa, and they did not disappoint. The majority of our safari-mates had been on one or more safaris with Cheesemans' previously. I will be going to Africa again with them in 2015!

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!
