We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Nepal organised by Transformative travel. We certainly experienced all of the values of HEART , humbled, engaged, active, resilience and thankful which is at the foundation of those guiding us. We were culturally enriched, saw and experienced fantastic scenery, rafted on waterways that are rarely navigated and tried our hand at mahseer fishing. We also tracked animals with an expert naturalist. We felt so fortunate to experience this and came back refreshed and with a feeling of renewal. I cannot recommend this company highly enough.

This was my second trip lead by Misty, with a nine year gap in between, thanks to Covid. Remarkably Misty hasn't changed! Charming as ever and making a great success out of our Bardia River, (Nepal), fishing trip which could have been a failure due to the river being in flood. But, by shifting the order of play a bit, it was great. We saw a tiger, briefly, and rhino and leopard, so all was not lost. And I caught a catfish! Not quite the mighty mahseer we were after, but a fish none the less! Well done Misty. Thanks also to Conan, who spotted every bird known to man!

Just back from Nepal, my third trip with Misty. This one offered a variety of experiences including fly fishing, cultural tours, a jungle safari, and a helicopter flight up to Mt. Everest. As usual everything was well organized, with great accommodations and an excellent support team. I wholeheartedly recommend Transformative Travel!
