I loved the bus tour to the National Parks this year. I suggest that when you go to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and stay at the Yavapai lodge dont waste your money on the walking tour to see the sunrise and breakfast at the El Tovar. It is an easy walk to the rim, just bring a flash light and enjoy it with everyone. The food at the El Tovar is too expensive and not worth the price. You can walk through the hotel and shop in its gift shops and eat at the other two restaurants close by.

I have taken several YMT tours and have been very pleased with all of them. This summer I took the Northbound Grand Alaskan, which included a week on a cruise and then a bus tour to Anchorage and Denali. It was all beautiful and amazing. The Grizzly Bear motel in Denali was fantastic. I am not referring to 5 star fancy hotel, I am referring to a beautiful room in the motel that was comfortable and a great view. I never expect every step of a trip to ever be perfect, or perfectly designed for me personally, therefore, I am always so pleased with someone else taking care of my luggage etc. I have always had tour guides that are so wonderful and caring and try to please everyone, which is not easy!
One of the other tours I took with YMT was the National Park tour. That was the most rewarding wonderful trip I have ever been on. The scenery was beautiful and my whole family loved the trip. I've traveled to Europe and used other tour groups and I have used YMT here in the U.S. I love having someone else do the driving, keeping a schedule and taking care of my luggage, so I can sit back and enjoy the trip.

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 YMT Vacations

    Standing for “Your Man Tours” YMT was founded in the late 1960s - as a pioneer guided tour company, responding to a rapidly emerging travel industry.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    One of the main things to note about YMT is their breadth of experience in conducting guided tours. Starting in 1967, as a small local operator in the US - they have grown practically right along with the guided tour industry. This gives them the knowledge and expertise necessary for the kinds of tours they operate.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Their tours are best enjoyed by travelers seeking a comfortable and easy travel experience, with a good balance of cultural activities. Most travelers with YMT are older, in the 50+ range. Tours are designed to fall into 5 broad activity levels, the lowest being “Relaxed” and the highest being “Active.” In their case “Active” refers to longer itineraries and less leisure or free time. Groups are small to large. Trips are affordable Certain customizations are available.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Currently they offer tours around the globe, including Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Cuba, Asia, and The Americas. They began in the US however, and are well known for their Hawaii, Alaska, and California tours (some specifically dedicated to the Rose Parade).

    Why Travel With Them?

    YMT has a long history in the travel industry - their guides and planners have everything down to a science. You know you’re in incredibly good hands when traveling with them. They are attractive to older travelers so you’re sure to meet good friends in the same age range. Trips are fun, easy, and all about seeing wonderful sights in comfort and ease.

    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.
