What people are saying about our adventures
The trip was incredible! It gave us a chance to see and experience real Nepali culture away from the usual tourist traps as well as give back to the community through a building project. Working alongside the Nepali people was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
Excellent! We have recommended Five14 to teams interested in Adventure Tours with a Purpose. Every team that we have referred to Five14 over the last 7 years have given us wonderful feedback about their first class experience. Thank you for your love and heart felt service to the people of Nepal through your quality Adventure Tours.
Amazing. On both occasions that I had the pleasure of partnering with Five14 I had a truly great experience. I would recommend Five14 to anyone who wants to explore with a purpose.
