HE Travel has become increasingly aware of the environmental impact traveling causes. Since travel is part of our name, we believe it is important to help offset the damage…
“The location was amazing. It’s hard to choose what I loved most about this destination, the food, the locals, the diving, hotel was amazing and friendly staff. Our hosts were most accommodating and every F&B place that we attended served an amazing dinner, the trip should be called Dine and Dive. If you’re looking for amazing views, diving and want to feel like a local, Saba is your place! I cant wait to return.”
“Seeing the Taj Mahal and the Mt Everest flight were on my ‘bucket’ list. It was my 16th (I think…) trip with HE travel and my 6th with Andrew as guide. Y’all must be doing something right… :=) Now if my bank account could have some time to catch up! The Kathmandu pre-trip was very good and the Everest flight was a dream come true.”
