Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek

The Team

Team Membership

We will take a maximum of 6 trekkers with each departure, hence spaces are limited. We will consider separate groups as mentioned earlier.

Guiding Team

We employ strong and specialised Expedition leaders and Sherpa staff, who are some of the most pre-eminent in the industry. We pride ourselves on operating with small teams, the best back-up and support available. This year our guiding team includes:

 Brenda George - Trekking Guide
Hailing from Wanaka, New Zealand, Brenda is no stranger to the mountains having forged a career working as a trekking guide and in the ski industry as a ski patroller and now as an avalanche program manager in Fiordland.  Brenda has guided treks throughout New Zealand and Nepal, having previously trekked to Everest Base Camp four times, including once all the way from Jiri. This year Brenda will be guiding our Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek #1.

Head Office Support Team

Running successful journeys and expeditions is more about experience, knowledge and strategic management than any other factors. As an organisation, we place a substantial amount of time and resources into ensuring our trips are well planned and supported. You can be assured that the AC staff will provide you with friendly advice and knowledgeable support throughout the planning stages of your trip and we will be there to provide backup while the trip is running.
