Just returned from St Lucia and wanted to put in a review for Smiley, our tour guide and Tony our driver on a Piton excursion we took while out there. Had a great day with them. Tony was a very good driver negotiating some very sharp bends on the skinny mountain roads, and Smiley great fun and very informative. Thanks guys

A group of us from work #Vista print went on the Catamaran cruise as a team engagement. We LOVED it. The experience was grand and the customer service was amazing. We're planning to do one of their other cruises soon. I'd recommend Island Routes to anyone

I would HIGHLY discourage anyone from booking with this company. At the very least, read all of the one star reviews on this page before doing so.
We booked a catamaran tour while staying at the Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall resort. We ended up paying around $250 (for two) to spend the day on the catamaran which included 1.5 hours of snorkelling, drop off at the Dunn's River Falls, and a return trip with food and drinks. About half way to the pick-up point, the Island Routes' shuttle driver informed us that the water was too choppy for the tour and that we would be turning back. Fine.
He then receives another call saying we can continue on to the Falls, if we'd like. He ensures us that we'll be refunded for only having done the Falls hike, and that we could deal with that once we returned to the resort. The group, looking to salvage the day, decided to carry on. We get to the Falls, do our thing (takes about 35 minutes to hike up and down), and return. At this point everyone is starving since we didn't receive any food or drinks and everyone pays for their own lunch at a place recommended by a fellow tourist. At the resort, we thank and tip our driver and head over to deal with our refund. After some hours dealing with a mixed crew of Island Routes' employees, we are told we will only be refunded $50.
We did not spend the day on a boat, we did not go snorkelling, we did not receive food and drinks. We spent four hours in a sweaty bus to go hiking, pay for our own shoe rentals/lunch, and then return. None of what we did is even advertised on the brochure we were sold on.
This company is sketchy and apparently not concerned about their reputation. I'm shocked that so many hotels, including the Hyatt, do business with them. Save your money and look elsewhere.

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 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.
