Mongolia Panorama

Our experiences with Tim Cope in Mongolia are just the stuff of dreams.
The trip was absolutely superb and having Tim as our guide was such an amazing bonus!

Your local operators there are excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything went superbly well. The drivers were unrivalled. They multi-tasked as butchers, professional singers and entertainers.

I cannot praise the whole team enough..... It was a dream come true: to ride in the wake of Genghis Khan, on a Mongolian horse, wrapped in a deel!

Thank you so much for organising such a magnificent trip!

Antarctic Highlights

Cruise to the magnificent South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. You will be accompanied by our experienced naturalists and expert crew who know this region so well. We shall fully appreciate this unique, pristine and dramatic region, and enjoy the magnificent wildlife viewing opportunities that are available. Albatross soaring over the Drake Passage, huge penguin colonies on the South Shetland Islands, and the whales and seals that frequent these icy polar waters. Imagine following in the footsteps of the world's greatest explorers, and time permitting visiting a scientific base. As we head south, the Peninsula becomes even more dramatic with towering icebergs, glistening unclimbed peaks and spectacular glaciers. No trip is ever the same, and seeing is believing in this wonderland of rock and ice.

traveller reviews

Just a belated thank you to World Expeditions for the wonderful trip to the Antarctic my sister and I joined last December. From the first day, it was agreed that 1 day on a plane and 2 1/2 days on a ship was a small price to pay to have the chance to enjoy such an amazing experience. The ship was comfortable and crewed by an excellent staff; the size of the vessel was perfect to allow maximum opportunity for the four dozen or so passengers to enjoy the experience (contrasted to many of the other vessels we saw in port in Ushuaia).
Furthermore, the guides provided were professional, knowledgeable and friendly, adding to the great atmosphere of the journey. Our fellow travellers were an outgoing and welcoming bunch too, which made for a wonderful time. I wholeheartedly commend World Expeditions to anyone as a first rate provider of adventure travel - I can't wait for my next opportunity to try another experience (perhaps Kenya at a quiet moment). My sincere thanks to the team.
