I decided to go on the Great Ocean Walk for a personal challenge - never having done long distance walking before. Surrounded in magnificent scenery of rugged coastline, good weather and a comfy bed with hot showers , it was an ideal and enjoyable short break with a difference and all the arrangements taken care of by Sharon.

I thoroughly recommend doing the Great Ocean Walk with Ekno Travels. Sharon has organised the trip so that you walk the best bits and return at the end of the day to a lovely cottage with hot showers and warm beds. A spectacular walk and no worries!

Local guide Vikas was also a brilliant choice, always open to chat about India and arrange some extra wishes. He was tireless, always living the slogan – ‘In India, everything is possible!’ It was just an amazing, brilliant, fantastic journey every hour of the way. I really fell in love with the country and I can’t wait to return!

My recent trip through Rajasthan with Ekno Tours was incredible. I was a bit apprehensive about taking a group of 18 women on tour but I needn’t have worried as Vikas and Sharon had everything covered and managed the group with ease offering guidance, insight and flexibility along the way to meet the group’s needs. The accommodation was comfortable and all the meals were divine (it’s important to like Indian food).

Vikas was our local guide when I went to India in 2013. He is the loveliest of people and looked after is really well. If I ever go back (and I am thinking about it) I would definitely want him as my guide again.

Vikas is a remarkable tour guide. Well organised, fun and with such an inspirational life story! It was great to have him interpret and explain situations, history and culture. I can’t actually speak highly enough of him – one gem of a tour guide.
