Grace W. (Toronto, Canada) - Ethiopia Culture & Nature Safari 2010
" Grace's comments on her Flick page: 'Just returned from an amazing trip to Ethiopia - culture, nature, history ... unsurpassed. Went with the best travel company ever: WANT Expeditions - WILDLIFE AND NATURE TRAVEL. Google them and thank me later. (Conde Naste - too late - I found Akos first!!!)'"
Livia C. (Rome, Italy) - Socotra Island of Yemen Extension 2010
" Socotra has been on my wish list for a long time, so when I learnt that WANT was planning a trip there, I decided it was time to go. I had an amazing holiday, starting from Sana’a, Yemen's capital, a city with an unique architecture and then in Socotra with its unique nature and landscapes. How can you forget, just to name a few, the Dragon Blood trees, the sea, the sand dunes or the natural pools where we swam in the mountains? I was so lucky to travel with both Akos and Jessica, which made this trip perfect and beyond all expectations."
Paula and Alton F. (McRae, United States) - Jordan Culture & Nature Safari 2010
" Our recent trip to Jordan with WANT Expeditions was filled with history, beauty and adventure. History was ever present. From the Roman ruins at Jerash, to the Promised Land at Mt. Nebo, to the Nabatean tombs at Petra, we witnessed the passage of time from Pre-Greek times through Greek, Roman, Christian and Muslim civilizations. The beauty of the land pervaded throughout our trip. The golden hues of the desert stood in stark contrast to the turquoise water of the Dead Sea, while the sunset at Wadi Rum produced a fiery glow in the surrounding sandstone.
Each day brought a new adventure, from doing the classic “Dead Sea float,” to hiking from Wadi Finan to Dana, and finally, to camping in Bedouin tents made of goat-hair at Wadi Rum. As seasoned world travelers, we both felt that our trip to Jordan with WANT Expeditions was everything we thought it would be, and more. Our tour leader, Jessica, was with us everyday. She was caring, energetic, and patient. She is very upbeat and inspiring, as well as knowledgeable and resourceful. In our view, Jessica ranks among the top tour leaders we have traveled with.
We WILL be traveling with WANT Expeditions again, soon, we hope.

Rosie M. (Neutral Bay, Australia) - Kamchatka Peninsula Wildlife Expedition 2010
" I had a fabulous trip with Jessica in Kamchatka. She is one of the best guides I have ever experienced."
Elizabeth H.F. (St Leonards, Australia) - Kamchatka Peninsula Wildlife Expedition 2010
" Jessica, thank you for making our trip to Kamchatka (and my birthday) so special. I am sure that milestone will be etched in my memory for ever."
Philip H. (Gresham, ) - Cuba Culture & Nature Expedition 2010
" Dear Akos, it was a pleasure to travel with you on the Cuba trip and both myself and Carolyn thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie of our fellow tour participants as well as the insight into the country that both yourself and Yuri were able to give, which made for a fascinating and informative trip. It is a unique country set in a time warp with a rich colonial past, which somehow manages to keep alive the communist vision of Castro. In addition, for me, the endemic birds were of great interest and we were fortunate to be able to see a good selection of these. I hope that it will not be too long before we are able to join another of your trips."
Joe B. (Alexandria, United States) - East Africa Photo Safari 2010
" I am writing to convey to you our thanks and appreciation for a wonderful experience on this safari. The group dynamics were great and we all very much enjoyed each others' company. Ferenc was an absolutely terrific tour leader. His warm and jovial personality kept us in good humor throughout the safari. He did a marvelous job in coordinating our schedule and accommodations and making sure all of our needs were satisfied. Truly an outstanding job."
Marie-Louise J. (Forest Lake, Australia) - Madagascar Wildlife Expedition 2010
" Madagascar was my first organised tour so I did not know quite what to expect and decided not to have too high expectations with regard to seeing wildlife. I could not have been more gratified. The trip went to places I had only dreamt of getting to, produced wildlife in abundance and shared Madagascar’s cultural magnificence. Everywhere we went was a new and exciting delight, no day was without wildlife surprises and even with occasional hiccups everything went so smoothly. Akos has a gift of allowing everyone’s day to give them what they want without hindering others. There were lovely walks in each location that were well balanced for both the relaxed and the more adventurous walkers. The places we stayed although all different were wonderful and on the occasions we arrived at night it was always a delight to wake up and see where we were staying. Sharing this trip with Akos, Madagascan people and my fellow travellers really made this a “trip of a lifetime” for me. To WANT I thank you."
Antoinette C. (Santa Cruz, United States) - Madagascar Wildlife Expedition 2010
" I have been all over the planet, and it is usually unappealing for me to return to an already traveled to place a second time. Madagascar, I would return to a second time. It has the beauty of tropical paradise, the vastness of Utah and the Grand Canyon, the diversity of flora and fauna, the intrigue of untouched countryside gift wrapped with charming villages. Tourism is held in high esteem. The WANT organization is definitely that, organized and well operated. One must mention the food because it deserves to be spoken of. Plenty of healthy, delicious, and 3 times a day no complaints meals. There is something to be said when the locals greet a tourist with a smile and welcoming gestures. When it came time to leave, I became all teary eyed."
Richard S. (New York, United States) - Greenland Traditional Narwhal Expedition 2010
" Dear Akos: I wanted to tell you that I have been traveling as an advocation for the greater part of my adult life that include several decades and I have never seen scenery such as we encountered in Greenland. Easily the best and most memorable trip I have ever taken. The experience and the sites almost defy description. No one could put into words an adequate description of the 4 ice bergs bathed in amber light that we saw on the second day. The storm that we encountered earllier in the day was both exciting and dangerous and was the type of experience that will live with me forever. Thanks for your company. You made a great roommate. Best to Jessica and I hope to see you on another adventure soon."
