How the Open Expedition changed my son's life

How the Open Expedition changed my son's life

My son, Jack, went to South Africa with your company in 2014. He had a wonderful experience and came back with a more mature outlook on life, and fantastic memories. I felt I must write and tell you what longlasting benefits his trip has had for him. He wrote about it on his CV and got offers from all five universities that he applied to. However, it was particularly beneficial recently , when he applied for a Year in Industry as part of his Mechanical Engineering degree. During his interviews he enthused about his experiences in South Africa, particularly about taking part in constructing a greenhouse for a local school. All the interviewers were extremely impressed, and I am sure this contributed to his being offered a placement for a large company next year. I thought you would be pleased to know the longlasting benefits we have found from lettiing Jack go on this trip, and I would recommend it to any young person who is contemplating going. It really has been lifechanging!

Best wishes

"Just wanted to drop you an email to say a massive thank you for giving Ibby the opportunity to experience the beauty of the people, the animals, the flora and fauna that S Africa offers.

Thanks especially to Steve and Sarah for being such wonderful expedition leaders. This expedition is an experience of life that Ibby will always remember the trip and will relish the friendships and memories she has made.

Would highly recommend Outposts to any student considering travelling.

Once again thanks and keep up the excellent work."

"I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team at Outposts for providing such an amazing trip to Nepal for Aled. He had a fabulous time (he didn’t want to come home) and hasn’t stopped talking about it since – and his plans for returning one day!

Mick and Megan were obviously excellent leaders and the Nepalese guides and chef were brilliant.

We have found the whole organisation and professionalism from all of you at Outposts, from the initial presentation at Chilton right up until the end of the expedition, so easy to deal with and gave us great confidence as Aled headed off on this trip of a lifetime. We won’t hesitate in recommending Outposts to others and sincerely hope that our younger son will approach you in a couple of years with the same desire to visit Nepal!

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH."

"Just a short note to say very many thanks to you and your colleagues for the amazing time Sophie had on her Nepal expedition. She thoroughly enjoyed every moment and only wishes that the trip could have been longer. It's clearly been a fabulous experience for her, making memories that will last a lifetime and enthusing Sophie with an appetite for travel and adventure."

"Thank you so much for the insanely amazing three weeks I had in South Africa. They were better than I could have ever imagined and wish I was doing it again. Thanks so much to Steve, Sarah and Dave who made the experience even more amazing by providing loads of laughter and positivity. Without ASDAN and Fee and the team I would have never had this experience, so I am extremely thankful. The trip has made me travel crazy now and I'm already planning my next."

Tailor-made school expedition reviews

Tailor-made school expedition reviews

"I have worked with Outposts for 2 years and have no doubt in recommending the organisation as an overseas school expedition organiser. I travelled to Nepal this year with 16 girls for 3 weeks on an itinerary organised by Fee Bellamy of Outposts, herself a Nepal specialist. The entire 3 weeks was little short of a 5* recommendation. The staff that supported us in country, the experiences that the girls had in their community projects, the inland travelling arrangements and accommodation, the bonding [training] weekends prior to departure and the general administrative work that was needed could not have been better. I could not fault Outposts and in particular, Fee Bellamy, in any shape or form. We are looking to launch another Nepal trip for two years’ time."
