Testimonials

Below you will find a selection of feedback and testimonials from both our clients and staff. We hope you find their words of enthusiasm both useful and inspiring.

"I loved every minute of my visit to Swedish Lapland. From the dog sledding, to the action packed snowmobile adventure. The hospitality was second to none, matching the amazing local food." 

"Truly one of the most extraordinary trips I have ever taken part in. This tops many of my previous expeditions and challenges around the globe. Svalbard is a dream destination, and the whole trip was organised and arranged perfectly. We will never forget sleeping out in the Arctic wilderness or our fantastic dog teams."

"Svalbard is an other-worldly experience! Just fantastic. Everything about visiting this most special of places was incredible and I would recommend it to anyone with a love of nature, the outdoors and unique places. I also loved the dogs so much!"

"Jonny at Sandgrouse Travel is a true professional! He has helped organise our annual Spring cycle training camp to Mallorca for the last few years and his attention to detail and foresight has proved invaluable. If you want your trip to be ‘seamless’, trouble free and all you have to worry about is enjoying yourself…then you need to speak to Jonny!"

Mont Ventoux Cycle Tour

“Utterly breath-taking views of Kenya to the North (also on the warmer side of the mountain!), a very sparsely trodden route that provides a serious sense of adventure and remoteness.  The Grand Traverse offers a huge chance of success for those looking to stand of the roof of Africa”

Sandgrouse Travel's extensive knowledge of Africa and the wilderness there, matched with their professionalism makes for them the perfect company to create a unique and bespoke travel adventure for you or your family.

Our consultant, Jonny, helped piece together the perfect adventure for us and whether it's safari, wine tasting in South Africa or a hiking/adventure trip I highly recommend to book with Sandgrouse Travel for your next holiday!

"Sandgrouse Travel carefully planned the trip of a lifetime, an unforgettable experience to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. They meticulously planned all aspects of the trip from our first night stay in a fantastic lodge, the 8 day expedition and then finally a one night stay in one of Tanzania’s top Lodges which was much needed luxury after the long climb. I was particularly impressed with the guides and porters that Jonny at Sandgrouse had arranged to help us. We successfully summited at 6am on the 7th day to watch an amazing sunrise which had been the plan from the start, and was testament to Jonny’s careful planning and organisation of the trip. 

Dealing with Sandgrouse Travel has been an enjoyable experience, not only are they extremely professional but also very personal and enthusiastic. Coupled with their valuable first hand experience ensured we had the time of our lives. I have since travelled again with Sandgrouse Travel to Norway’s Hordaland Mountains and they are now currently planning my next trip for early 2016. 

I would highly recommend anyone looking for a personalised and authentic experience to speak to the Sandgrouse Travel team."

Thank you for what was one of the most wonderful winter trips we have ever taken. Your care and attention to detail, listening to our long list of requirements meant we had what can only be described as a holiday of a lifetime!

We will be back for more very soon. Thanks again, go Team Sandgrouse!

Thank you for arranging a wonderful trip! We’ve been regular visitors to Mallorca for the last 15 years. We normally head for the interior of the island where there is a good selection of stylish boutique hotels, it's hard to surprise us but this trip exceeded our expectations. Finding the hilltop village you suggested for al fresco dining was a delight and there were a number of real gems to discover that are unaffected by the commercial pressures of the coastal resorts. Palma has one of the easiest airports to navigate and the short flight time from the UK makes a long weekend break an attractive possibility.

Mont Ventoux Cycle Tour

"Thanks Solveig and Jonny for everything, you were wonderful! We loved you both and this is the first time after so many travels I was sad to leave our guides! I hope to see you again, in France, (Paris of South of France if you come one day), or in Scotland next time I come back! Stay like you are, don't change, you are perfect!"

Climbing to the top of Mount Newtontoppen is an experience that few people on earth are ever given the opportunity to enjoy.

This is one of those experiences that will stay with you for the rest of your life. If the weather conditions are right you may even be able to enjoy lunch on the summit, looking north across what seems like all of Spitsbergen's true Arctic wilderness.

We loved our trip around Scotland travelling by Land Rover - the Land Rover was part of our excitment and enjoyment each day and added to the sense of adventure!
