i feel i must write regarding the previous review. i along with 4 others have just returned from AS tour, we all agreed that if you read the brochure and trip notes then you would not be disappointed with the accomodation. It was as described asclean and basic,if you want 4* luxury you do not go on a trek. If anything, the standard was better than described, we had hot water and electricity at all the teahouses.
The whole holiday was absolutely brilliant, wonderfully organised and the tour personnel could not do enough for us. I will definely be returning for another trip with explore.
DO NOT BE PUT OFF BY THE PREVIOUS REVIEWERS COMMENTS. just go with an open mind and enjoy the whole experience. (AS -25th September 2011)
