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 has given us wonderful feedback about their first-class experience. Thank you for your love and heartfelt 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.
