How easy was it to get impartial advice?
Work involved to book holiday
“It was difficult to get a balanced view across the various forums that I had searched.”
Hamish with Steppes:
“Joe at Steppes Travel took the time to really understand what we wanted to experience and was honest about what would work well for our trip and what perhaps wouldn’t be right for us. He took the time to get to know us which made the service feel all the more personalised.”

“Steppes offered value for money in ways that booking independently would not allow for. They streamlined what would have been an exhausting and arduous task. In short booking a holiday is the one exception where I wouldn’t endorse doing it DIY. For a beyond the ordinary experience we wouldn’t travel with any other company.”
