As a frequent outdoor adventure enthusiast, one of the benefits of going with a group is to learn of new places to visit, tips on a wide range of areas, etc. A big benefit is learning of travel companies that offer unique experiences and offer quality at reasonable prices. Besides REI Adventures, what companies have you used and would recommend. One of my favorites is a US based women’s only group, Adventures in Good Company. I have used many foreign-based companies as well such as Nepal Hiking Team which caters to both sexes. Any you’d recommend?
