Check out what some of our past clients have to say
"My trek in the Fann Mountains of Tajikistan was a truly great experience. The group was small, the trip well-planned, the itinerary interesting, and the scenery beyond beautiful. Nicole's expertise in backpacking and in this part of the world is unparalleled. Really, she is a walking-talking guidebook (in addition to being very kind and helpful). "
"Nicole is an outstanding guide.
Her tour in Tajikjstan was impeccably organized. From start to finish, she made it smooth, safe and enjoyable. I highly recommend her!"
"We went to Socotra with Nicole in Jan 2023 - starting in Cairo and finishing in Adan. Nicole handled all the details and was wonderfully responsive pre-trip as what are ordinarily simple things like buying airplane tickets are not easy for this itinerary. She handled every detail. This is an incredible trip - we felt very safe traveling as single women. Her relationships with the locals made it an authentic experience. The beauty and magic of Socotra is beyond compare. We have travelled all over the world and this was a highlight."
