The company's 'about us' section explains that it is beyond what coach-tours offers. They say, "We believe that travelling active makes for unforgettable fun experiences as you explore destinations up-close and personal - exploring the unfamiliar, immersing yourself in local flavours and unwinding in the adventure of one's choice. No matter what travel style you choose, there is nothing quite like discovering quaint villages, gliding past little known vineyards, soaking in the scenery and adding a dash of adventure to your life, all the time leaving a low carbon footprint and making a difference quietly."
Being a travel buff, I couldn't agree more and was quite intrigued with this concept of 'active' adventure holiday that AHC offers. Recently, I attended their #AWLMumbai event and was doubly convinced by the discussions that happened and especially their choice of panel; that consisted of some really unique speakers - all achievers of incredible feat no less!
Check out the plethora of adventure trips Active Holiday Company offers via their online website; across various continents, along with lots of special offers on the platter too. Impressed totally, I went off searching my own dream trip immediately, that I'd love to go on hopefully soon. With so many options, I was totally spoilt for choice. Psst...I heard Malaysia is one of their top 3 destination.
So many mind-boggling choices to choose from!
Anyways, finally, I zeroed down my choice in a Small Group Big Fun family holidays Hiking, Walking and Trekking » Multi-Active Jordan Tour! I hate huge groups of tourists where nobody knows anyone and you end up feeling lost. The guide's attention too is on just a few; ignoring the rest. Whereas, in a small group you make friends more easily, interact a lot; hence, fun is many more times enhanced and you are on the guide's radar as well, with personalized attention.
Multi-Active Jordan Tour [8 days]
The middle-east has always fascinated me. It is supposedly the cradle of civilization eg. ancient Mesopotamia. Jordan is one of the most beautiful places located in this region. I had seen glimpses of it first in the Discovery channel. From remnants of ancient civilization, to deserts, the dead-sea, mountains, caves, wadis, castles and more - this place simply screams ADVENTURE! I'd love to trek some of the rugged terrain Jordan has, with some of them hardly inhabited. The trip that AHC offers is a 'challenging' one - with trekking, cycling, canoeing in the itinerary, that promises to be one helluva adventure! I can barely wait!
Lets look at the overview of the trip and what's included in the tour price :-)
Whats included in the Tour Price!
In the Active Holiday Company website, for all trips, as you can see from the green tabs ( see above screen shots ), you get a clear detailed info about the whole trip; right from Itinerary, Dates & Prices, Conditions and Faqs you should know 'Before you go'. So, one can get all their doubts cleared regarding what adventure they want to opt for. AHC even rate the level/difficulty of each, thus, you know what category of hurdle you can expect in the trip. I think it is highly applaudable. Plus, you get extensive info on the Faqs, regarding Visas etc.
Well, there it is ~ my dream vacation - a mind-blowing active tour to Jordan offered by Active Holiday Company. What's yours?
