Leh Ladakh - August 10, 2015
Dear Overland Escape, My family just returned back from Leh and we all agreed that we left part of our heart there - and one of the biggest reasons why was our experience with the team at Overland Escape. From the moment we arrived everything was smooth and the orientation and meetings at the hotel were very helpful. We were expertly driven to see the sights with Doulje and we quickly became comfortable with him and his very easy going spirit (which was perfect with two kids). He adapted very well to our personality and we shared good laughs. We had quite the adventure with Lobzang, Tulag and Tanzing. The rains interrupted our itinerary, but we always felt comfortable and safe with the decision making ability of the team. When we decided to make the best of it by camping in Zeng Chen they made sure they could make it as special as possible. Dinner that evening was amazing! A very special thank you to Lobzang who really looked after our 8-year old son Alex. Alex especially felt a connection with him and Lobzang was very patient and friendly. I know that creating a special experience for others is not about luck - it's about working hard to build a team of good people and having pride in what you do and where you live. The magic is about making it seem easy even though I know it's not and the team worked really hard. My family will remember this very special experience and we can't wait to come back again. Sincerely, Christina, Brian, Kathlin and Alex AiChang Denver, Colorado...

Leh Ladakh - February 25, 2015
Me and the guys had a really great time in leh. It was our 2nd 3rd time in leh and first time in winter. It was real fun. And the facilities from your side were perfect. And the last day when we completed our trek from hinju to wanla we had planned to stay in tents for that night. But my friends wanted to go home so i had no say in the coming back thing and it was all due to their fatigue. The guide Mr Lobzang was very helpful. Also the cooks were amazing. Our driver Mr Dorjey was also very courteous and helpful. And the people at Hotel Lotus!! This Leh winter has been truly amazing. This was my first time with overland, but surely not the last. I will surely recommend it to all my friends. This Leh winter was an amazing experience. Thanks to your overland team....
