“What a wild adventure with YellowWood in Ethiopia! I have no words to describe the beauty of this country and the experience of walking through it. This was my first ever hiking holiday and I would recommend it to anyone.”

Jessica Henrich, Cape Town

“Travelling with YellowWood is a true adventure. Their expertly crafted itineraries get under the skin of a destination, escaping the tourist trail and really getting to the heart and soul of a place and its people.”

Sarah Marshall, Award-winning travel writer, UK National Press Association, London

“Joining the trekking tour to Kyrgyzstan with YellowWood Adventures was the best experience ever. You embark on a true adventure going to remote non-touristy places unlike other rival tour operators that boast of going to unbeaten paths. The company offers a bespoke personalised service and you are certainly not treated like a reference number. I highly recommend the YellowWood Adventures experience.”

Ben Wee, London

“This was really quite a remarkable period of time, a really a great experience travelling in Iran! YellowWood did a terrific job in putting this together; it was both an extremely exciting, enjoyable, but also an eye-opening experience. Thanks to all the team, and I hope we have an opportunity to adventure again sometime!”

Dr Richard Nierenberg, New York

… and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
