We set our open group prices as low as we can possibly manage without cutting corners, cheating on our porters or reducing quality. And as well as this we work with maximum group sizes on all destinations that are much smaller than most of our competitors as we believe small groups have better, safer, more enjoyable experiences.
To make all these commitments possible we have to try and ensure all our open groups are pretty fully booked. We have found that the best way to achieve this is to offer our very best prices for either early bookings or absolutely last-minute deals where we still have availability.
So, if you want the cheapest price possible and want to be certain of a date book as early as you can. If you have loads of flexibility then waiting till late may also work.
We understand that this policy may mean there are other people on the same trek as you who have paid more or less for their trip. We know this can be irritating but hope you understand this approach allows us to offer great value to all our customers.
