That’s our commitment to you—and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

  • utter euphoria

    I read good things about Mountain Travel Sobek’s safety precautions and long experience on the route...scaling the breach was the high point of the trip. Utter euphoria! I think you all have this trip down to a science and would encourage friends to go with you for that reason.

  • every trip is my favorite

    Alaska is the place that brought me alive, heart and soul, and brought my mind to utter peace. That’s why I go back so often—for that experience. And every trip is my favorite because MTS guides are the best in the world!

    Marti Spiegelman ~ Glacier Bay Escape

  • enthusiasm and professionalism

    Both my daughter and I thought the best part of the trip was our guide, Namgay. We thoroughly enjoyed both the cultural and trekking experiences equally. Namgay’s enthusiasm and professionalism were above the grade of excellent. His knowledge of culture and wildlife was superb. Namgay added his own personal touch, which made the entire trip a magical experience for the two of us…the trip was perfect!

  • best guide I've ever had

    This was my eighth MTS trip and the second to the Galápagos. On all the other MTS trips I’ve taken, I have had excellent guides—I’ve never been disappointed. Having said this, I want you to know that Greg Estes has been by far and away the best guide I’ve ever had. He has a great ability to impart his knowledge of the Galápagos, but also to regale us with entertaining anecdotal stories that enhance the experience. He has a knack for making every person on the trip feel as if they are the most important. I hope to return to the Galápagos on a future trip with more of my family.

  • our favorite adventure travel company

    A prominent reason we have chosen MTS as our favorite adventure travel company has been the excellent travel guides. This adventure has certainly been no exception. Kalia is a very valuable member within your team—well-versed in the history and cultures of the Hawaiian Islands. She knows the flora and fauna, where they came from, and their uses. Kalia is friendly, compassionate, and willing to structure the trip to the needs and desires of her guests. Through Kalia, we were able to obtain an in-depth understanding of all aspects of Hawaii. Kalia made our Hawaiian adventure very special!

    Carol & Burt Douglass ~ Adventures in Hawaii

  • in love with your company

    The guides were phenomenal, the scenery beautiful, the food great, plus the hiking, waterfalls and whitewater were beyond belief! It was the highlight of our lives as a family. What a beautiful country, what beautiful people—we will miss everyone sooooo much. We couldn’t have asked for a better mix of people on the trip. We laughed, talked, and got along great. I am in love with your company!

    Sharon O’Connor ~ Adventures in Costa Rica

  • first on our list

    When my group was deciding which travel company to choose for our dream trip to Peru, Karen wrote describing what MTS could do for us. Everything Karen promised came true, and much more! Our trip was perfect and not one person in my group had a complaint—we were all very happy with MTS. Your staff was perfect, your choice of hotels was excellent, and as a bonus, the weather was fantastic. We are very satisfied with our choice of MTS, and you will be first on our list when we plan our next trip.

  • the feeling of being adventurers

    Our guide, Kristy Larsen, knows the country and people so well that we felt like travelers rather than tourists. She showed us Morocco the way tourists don’t usually see it. We also enjoyed the intimacy of traveling with a small group of likeminded people. Kristy was as much a part of the group as she was a guide, and was instrumental in creating a sense of cohesion. Of course, the Sahara stands out as the star of the trip. From the moment we left the paved road, we had the feeling of being adventurers in a remarkably beautiful land.

    Nancy & John Maxwell ~ Morocco Camel Trek

  • always very responsive & helpful

    Each day was different from the day previous, the hikes were challenging overall, and the guides were the very best. The staff at MTS is always very responsive and helpful. It is one of the reasons I have taken over a dozen trips over the years. Laurent is one of the very best guides I have ever had on any trip from any company (and I have been on over 30 adventure trips). His ability to relate on a personal, fun level is incredible. His knowledge of the local geology, biology, zoology, and culture/history cannot be matched by any guide I have traveled with. I would sign up for a trip just to travel with him again. I also appreciated that Laurent added some twists and turns to the scheduled hikes as the days progressed, and gave us options for routes he had not done in the past. I also liked that he let me (a fast hiker) go ahead at times.

  • so far beyond expectations

    This trip was so far beyond our expectations. At the end of the first day, after a spontaneous swim with more than 3 dozen dolphins and having had a baby sea lion lick her toe, our 10-year-old daughter said, “Mummy, this is the best day of my life.” It was all gravy from that point, and just kept getting better. Thank you, MTS!
