Annapurna Basecamp Trek October 2019

Our guide and doctor were so friendly and helpful during our trip, and staff back in Ireland were always willing to provide advice and help before and after the trip. One of the best holidays in a long time!

I found all the staff, both in the office and on the ground, very friendly, enthusiastic, informative and encouraging which contributed to my having a wonderful trip.

Kilimanjaro Climb September 2019

The trip was absolutely fantastic! Jono was an incredible guide. His easy-going nature put all and any nerves to rest. He was so knowledgeable about Kili, climbing and hiking in general. I feel he perfected the balance between being professional in his work as well as great craic and a core part of the team. The rapport that had been built over time between him and the guides and porters showed he was consistently kind to all. He was very organised throughout the trip, having multiple copies of our itineraries, briefing us at dinner, pre-ordering dinner at the Outpost so we could all eat at the same time etc. He arranged the renting of gear in Tanzania for those who needed it and chemist trips, market trips, birthday cakes and more. We didn’t have to think about one thing, he took care of it all and made no fuss. Our doctor, David, was also lovely. A very nice guy and well-integrated into the group. Thankfully I didn’t require anything medically but, had I needed to, I would have been entirely comfortable and confident talking to him. Very good interpersonally and a great conversationalist. It was his fourth time doing Kili which made us all feel more at ease as he knew what to expect and when.
Tanzania was great – I loved the Outpost and the staff were approachable and helpful. It was a secure and comfortable stay. The staff on the mountain were such a crucial part of the experience and really made the difference. A special shoutout to Thomas, Innocent, Good Luck, Walter, Carlos, Isaac and the chefs. I know there are so many working behind the scenes and don’t get a look in from the trekkers, but these guys were so good to us. At no point did I feel unsafe and they were great fun. The food was also phenomenal – I ended up not touching any of the snacks I brought. You couldn’t go hungry if you tried.
As a business, I adore Earth’s Edge. Namely, the transparency of the group. There are no hidden fees or terms and conditions. Your ethical stance of supporting KPAP to care for your overseas employees and bringing a doctor to care for your customers shows that money is not the objective of the company. I was wondering previously about the environmental impact of a business like this, but then your email about offsetting emissions by planting trees arrived and the worry lifted. It’s clear to see that creating an unforgettable experience is at the core of it all, but not at the expense of individuals or the environment. Even the touches like the celebratory dinner, the Christmas party etc. have a massive impact on the clientele. These moments cement us as a group. I have no reservations about recommending you to friends and family and would 100% travel with you again.

Kilimanjaro Climb September 2019

Oh my gosh, the trip was fantastic from beginning to end. I had no expectation for my trip only nerves and can safely say it was one of the best experiences of my life. Earth’s Edge had attended to every detail for us and I would 100% recommend you guys to anyone. Our Expedition leader Jono went above and beyond always checking in that we were ok and checking if we needed anything. He had some very difficult challenges sent his way and he handled everything with great maturity and care to the whole group! The local team also are just so helpful and kind. This has opened my mind to do God only knows what next. Thanks a million for everything and hope to make the Christmas party!

Kilimanjaro Climb September 2019

If Carlsberg did expeditions, they wouldn’t beat this one. Probably one of the most amazing experiences of my life! The attention to detail, constant care and craic was second to none. I’ve never been so prepared for any trip or hike ever. Yet still blown away by the fantastic experience that was to unfold. Testament to such a professional and enjoyable approach by Earth’s Edge, and their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. One special memory that will remain with me forever, was when our guides started singing as we began our ascent to the summit, their energy and kindness lifted us to the top. What’s more they continued singing uninterrupted until we reached the summit. With hats bopping to the rhythm of the music into the sunrise at Stella Point – we knew we had made it. MAGIC! This exemplified all that Earth’s Edge has to offer and how they empower their team. For everything else, there’s MasterCard. We were blessed with the weather which made the experience even more special. As clichéd as it sounds – Ralph Waldo Emerson put it so aptly: “Life is a journey, not a destination.” My journey climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was one that will resonate with me forever and has opened my eyes to different cultures, new perspectives, a desire to keep travelling (with Earth’s Edge) and most importantly, I descended with friends for life. A million thanks for making this bucket list moment happen – an exceptional experience on an extraordinary expedition.

Machu Picchu Trek September 2019

I came for an experience of a lifetime and I sure as hell got it. The trek itself was challenging at times but it was worthwhile because of the scenery and sights. It was a pleasure to meet different people and to become friends with them by the end of the trip. Overall a trip of a lifetime and one I will never forget.

Everest Base Camp Trek September 2019

It was a brilliant trip seriously well organised and ran like clockwork with Fiona and Ruth, all involved in the group were a pleasure to share the super experience with and memories and friends for a lifetime were made an altogether brilliant experience that I couldn’t but recommend.

Everest Base Camp Trek September 2019

This was my second trip with Earth’s Edge and just like the first time it went off without a problem due to Earth’s Edge attention to detail. Excellent leadership and medical backup from Fiona and Ruth. Excellent organisation from Barbra and co. in the office. Míle buíochas everyone.

Everest Base Camp September 2019

Everest Base Camp was my second expedition with Earth’s Edge, having done Kilimanjaro in 2016. On both occasions, I have found Earth’s Edge to be exceptionally professional and helpful. The staff both on the expedition and in Dublin will do all they can to make the trip enjoyable and an experience to remember. EBC was truly one of the greatest trips I have ever done. Beautiful scenery and a group of people who genuinely supported one another the whole way along. I couldn’t recommend it more if I tried!

Machu Picchu Trek September 2019

I just recently returned from Peru on my third trip with Earth’s Edge. It was truly an amazing experience, in an amazing country. The scenery, culture, food, the trek and most of all the people will live long in the memory. This is a challenging trek, largely in remote areas and all the better for it. There are too many highlights to mention, I loved every minute of it !!!

Machu Picchu Trek September 2019

Machu Picchu has been top of my bucket list for the last twenty years but no words can do justice, to describe the trip of a lifetime I’ve just experienced with Earth’s Edge. Thank You!

Kilimanjaro Climb September 2019

My first experience with Earth’s Edge was so positive, it has piqued interest in further trekking! Experienced expedition leader, excellent local guides and great support from the Dublin office made it a trip of a lifetime where I felt confident, equipped and safe at all times.

Kilimanjaro Climb September 2019

My trip to Kilimanjaro with Earth’s Edge was simply amazing! The expedition was organised impeccably from start to finish. The expedition leader gave us all the advice, encouragement and know-how to get to the summit safely while enjoying every minute of the experience. I would highly recommend Earth’s Edge and hope to do another trip with them soon!

Kilimanjaro Climb September 2019

Having gone to Kilimanjaro with Earth’s Edge, I would never contemplate doing expeditions with anyone else. Highly professional and organised, Earth’s Edge think of everything required to make the trip an unforgettable experience.
