This 6 day World Expeditions trip was truly memorable picking the highlights of the 14 day end-to-end Larapinta Trail into the McDonnell Ranges west of Alice Springs. Walking on ridges with 360 views of central Australia stretching to the horizon, waves of rock literally folded by unimaginable forces many millions of years ago, beautiful chasms, gorges, gaps. Black cold nights lit by pure starlight. Great food, twelve other strangers that weren’t by the end. A memorable experience.
Thor’s Jamie was our contact and she impressed. Always polite, gentle reminders, responding to all our questions promptly and updating us in between if the answers were taking a while, sometimes in her own time. Thanks, Jamie!
I’ve just returned from Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal. Jamie had all bases covered and everything ran like clockwork. The brochures and information provided to me were all completely accurate and there were no nasty surprises!
There was always the sense that should something go wrong, Jamie and World Expeditions would be there to help. A great trip run professionally by World Expeditions and Thor Travel.
Thanks to you Jamie.
Jamie did an amazing job pulling together a month long trip to South America in a very short time frame. I also had quite complicated dietary/medication requirements and she liaised with the airlines and tour operators to ensure my needs were met to the best of their ability. I will definitely be booking my next holiday through Thor Travel!
I met Chris and Tashi Lachman when I joined Thor Travel’s tour to Bhutan in 2017. This tour had been recommended to me by a friend who had travelled to Bhutan on three previous tours with Thor – surely I need say no more! The tour was everything and more of what I had been looking forward to and, on the basis of my enjoyment and participation in all the optional walks, Tashi suggested I consider a Nepal trek with World Expeditions. More than this, Tashi recommended a particular trek and starting date. Once I had Googled World Expeditions’ ‘ultimate annapurna dhaulagiri’ itinerary I was hooked – there was no way I was going to miss such an opportunity.
Tashi booked me on the 19 October 2018 departure date – at that stage not confirmed. The trek was something I will never forget, or thank Tashi for recommending, as the whole experience was … think of every superlative you have ever known and then some! I was very grateful to have booked through Tashi as her help was needed when I had spent three days in Kathmandu without booked-through luggage (a story too long to go into here). Her reassurance and emergency measures information saved my sanity and my enjoyment of the whole experience.
From the above, everyone reading this will know how I rate Tashi and Thor Travel, Adelaide, Australia – 100%
Heidi, Peter, Debbie and I would like to thanks Sandra Worsfold and Thor Travel for arranging a life-changing experience, well beyond a holiday. All her recommendations were brilliant- from the accommodation in Singapore, the amazing safari in Chitwan NP, the homestay in the Kathmandu Valley, the Momo cooking class and especially the Himalaya trek. Everything went seamlessly. Thanks Sandra and Thor Travel for everything and I would highly recommend them for any travel, and making it an experience of a lifetime.
Thank you very much Tashi for your help with your clients repatriation from the Himalaya’s.
Your local knowledge, experience and organisation skills made a significant difference in the ease in which we were able to organise the repatriation.
We appreciated the assistance and time you provided our team which ultimately ensured our mutual clients were cared for at this time.
Over the last few years, Andrea has helped us organise our holidays in a very professional manner. Her travel knowledge is exceptional and she is very considerate of our travel needs!!
Thor Travel has handled our travel arrangements for over 10 years. Sandra Worsfold, our consultant who has travelled extensively is a wealth of information. No destination, visa application or flight schedule is beyond her expertise.
Sandra is very professional & replies to any request ASAP. We are extremely happy with the service Thor Travel provides and thoroughly recommend them.
Our preparation for Bhutan was seamless. From the moment we landed in Paro we received a Bhutanese welcome , treated as our guides Bhutanese family calling the land of Gross National Happiness home for 12 days. Each day began with a blessing for the wonder of the day ahead. Furthermore as each day progressed it seemed to surpass the last. It would be very hard to pen a favourite memory but particularly moving to me was the planting of our peace flag at Chelela Pass, morning/lunch with our Monk, the literally breathtaking view at Duchelo Pass, our wonder-filled home stay at Punarka and of course the Black -necked crane festival. Our guides and drivers ensured that each and everyone of our ‘Bhutanese’ family was totally taken care of every step of the way. This was a life changing experience and I recommend Thor Travel as the team to change your life as well. Thank you Thor!
The quality of care in the countries we visited, when booking with Thor was exceptional.
Drivers and guides were highly skilled and could be relied on at all times to make our travel experience pleasurable. At the same time we knew we had exceptional support through Thor, at home, should we need it.
We are very grateful for your excellent service
‘I was in Antananarivo with a shoulder that had been badly dislocated and looking to get home as quickly as possible. It was a weekend and trying to organise things with the insurance company and the locals was difficult. Sandra from Thor Travels came to the rescue and sorted things out over the weekend with the Insurance people and the hospital in Antananarivo, from whom the Insurance people needed a report, and I was on the plane headed home on the next available flight. Great service. When things go wrong a good Travel Agent is invaluable’.
Highly recommend. I’ve used a number of travel agencies but none matches the service of Andrea at Thor. Nothing’s a problem/it’s rather a challenge; she’s responsive; highly knowledgeable and has been there or can draw on Thor colleagues who have been there; she sometimes pushes me to do things I later am so pleased I did; she listens and spends time. She’s approachable and she gets it right!
I cannot thank Nieccia enough for planning my trip.
Thank you Nieccia for your patience and consideration to changes along the way. Also, for being super organised and checking plans thoroughly. The trip was easier than I imagined with getting through airports and around the place and having Thor bookings made the days breezy and enjoyable. There is no one else who I would want to book my next trip with. I felt like Thor was ‘in it’ with us and I had backup if anything went amiss.
Absolutely loved it.
Absolutely brilliant! Tashi and Jamie have exceeded all standards and level of service to organise my trip to Nepal, Bhutan and India in early 2017. Their experience, knowledge and care is truly exceptional
The most wonderful trip I have ever taken was with Thor Travel to Tibet and Nepal Would love to do it again
Nieccia has helped us in planning and booking our holidays. She is friendly, helpful and super efficient! Would definitely recommend Thor Travel to anyone looking to book a holiday.
Tashi is the very best tour leader in the country! I highly recommend booking through Thor Travel if you have a problem overseas like I did in Uzbekistan being over stood by immigration and being refused exit Tashi was on hand even although still in Australia to help out.
