"Thank you David for one of the best adventure holiday experiences I have had in my life. I will carry memories of the EBC Trek with me for the rest of my life.The personal highlight for myself was being fed by Mingma.The simplistic life style of the Sherpa and there attitude toward life was a real eye opener. I found our Guide and Porters extremely open friendly and a joy to be around. The scenery was spectacular and photos did not capture the awe that was inspired. Once again thank you David for an awesome trip"
"My adventure to Nepal with David was one of the best experiences of my life. It was the most physically and mentally challenging endeavour that I have ever undertaken and I loved every second of it. I have memories of the grandeur of the Himalayas (a stack load of breath-taking photos), and new friendships that will last a life-time. David's decade of experience, attention to detail, brilliant pre-departure training program combined with his passion for the Nepalese people, culture and majesty of the mountains made the trip flawless. David .... Thank you for a trip of a lifetime!!"
"It’s funny going back to work, observing how people go about their days and noticing their #FirstWorldProblems. Nepal really is a world away from who we are and what we do. I think I’m so much better for doing a trip like this and I thank David for the opportunity to share his love for Nepal and its people"
"Hi David, Completing the Trek with your group to Namche Baazar and up to Mt Everest View Hotel has been one of the most amazing adventures I have ever experienced. I am sure I would not have been able to continue if it had not been for your meticulous planning and experience. I commend you for the information on your easy to follow website, the training schedule, the camaraderie of getting to know other members of the group which encouraged us to get fit before the big event. Also the wonderful guide and porters that you have worked with over the years contributed in no small way to keep me going when I wondered if I could go another step. All my family have been saying how proud they are of my achievement, and acquaintances have looked at me in amazement when I tell them how I went trekking in Nepal. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to Trek Nepal with you.
"David. Rhys and I would firstly like to say WHAT AN INCREDIBLE TRIP! I have never been challenged in that way before, but have also never experience such natural wonders. Waking up with the view that we had every morning was indescribable and when people keep saying "How was your trip?!" all I can say "I just can’t even tell you, it was better than words". So thank you for one of the best experiences of my life. I'm excited to return and discover more of Nepal and other trekking regions. You were such a great trek leader, and it didn't go unnoticed that you always made sure the group had their meal before you got yours,and the group was safely on their way before you began your walk. So thank you"
"Thank you David for a well planned trip, even down to clothing, restaurants to eat at, guides/porters and accommodation. We only had to concentrate on walking. David’s enthusiasm for Nepal and it’s culture flows through to you as you walk the amazing landscape, pass through villages and interact with the friendly and happy Nepalese people. Age is not a barrier, we are 63 years old, all you need is an open mind and a reasonably fit body, helped by the pre-trip training sessions. This is an adventure of a lifetime.
Oops, we’ve been home two days and have already signed up for the 2015 trip with two of our children as well"

“If you are contemplating a Himalayan journey that you won’t quickly forget, then this is one you must consider. Let Dave take the hassle out of planning the daily trek, arranging overnight accommodation, managing porters & others, so that you can face & concentrate on the significant daily challenge of completing a high altitude walk among some of the world’s most unforgettable scenery. His informative Blog allows your family & friends to follow your progress & send messages of support. This is not just another holiday but a well-managed adventure”
“Definitely an adventure and not a holiday! It’s 8 days hard slog to earn the right to stand on Kala Pattar (and at least 3 hard days to get back down again) - and absolutely worth every bit. Words - even pictures just don't do it justice.
You won't get there without solid preparation and a well managed plan, which is where Dave's experience comes into play. For all of Team 13 to make KP is a real testament to this. If it was easy it just wouldn't be the same and you will never look at a challenge the same way again. If you have a bucket list - then this is a must!”
