Top 10 out of 605 Tour Operators
These are the figures quoted in Wanderlust Magazine when they announced their 2013 Readers Travel Awards. We were delighted to find that we had been named as one of the top 10 Tour Operators by their readers and we thank you all for your vote. KE is regularly mentioned in Wanderlust and 2 of our new adventures also made their top 50 trips for 2013. Our Giants of the Pamir trekking holiday and our new Beaches & Baobabs of Northern Madagascar discovery holiday made the grade. In the awards the Top 2 Emerging Destinations were Nicaragua and Greenland, both already KE regulars, and when it came to the Top 10 Countries, Burma was top but we also run trips to all the others. Celebrating 20 years in travel, Wanderlust has more insight into the world than most.

Nepal Flight Sale

Last chance - extended to 8 April

If you are looking to travel to Nepal this year and can book your holiday before the 8th of April, you will benefit from discounted fares offered by the excellent airlines, Qatar and Etihad. This steal of a deal means we can cut at least 100 from the flight inclusive prices of classic Himalayan trekking holidays such as the Ultimate Everest Trek, the circuit of Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna Circuit. So, if you are heading off to Nepal between the 31st of March and 5th of December, you could have more spending money than expected. But, be quick or you'll miss it!

Well..... at least until 7pm

We've extended our office hours to make it easy for you to get in touch with us. We're very proud of the fact that when you call our office you can talk to someone with first hand experience. To make this easier for more of you we've extended our hours from 0900 to 1900 UK time, Monday to Thursday, throughout the year. So, if it's hard for you to contact us from work, or if you live on the west coast of the USA, you now have the chance to talk to us at some time during the day. Still tough if you live in Sydney, but we promise to return any emails straight away.

Albania to Slovenia, this is the summer to go East and here are 6 reasons why!

(3)  Albania - Our new family holiday 'Land of the Eagles' was featured in the Sunday Times 100 best holidays for 2013.


(4) Bulgaria - A truly magical combination of lakes, mountains and a slow pace of life, Bulgaria will delight you with its timeless beauty.  


(5) Georgia - This is the place to go for high and wild trekking in the rugged Caucasus Mountains, known as the 'Alps of the East'.


(6) Poland - Hut-to-hut trekking holiday across the Tatras takes us to Poland's highest summit and back to Krakow in time for tea.
