Steve and Ann Gaunt - Melbourne Contact

Steve and Ann, confessed travel addicts, started their traveling adventures back in the 70s, with extended travel through Europe and just a touch of Asia. After taking time out to raise a family the couple returned to their passion about 10 years ago.

Travels over the past fifteen years have focused on Asia with Nepal and the surrounding area being the preferred destination, Steve and Ann fell in love with Nepal on their first trip there in 1999, and have been back many times since then, some of the highlights for Nepal, Tibet and India so far include traveling across the Tibetan plateau in a 4WD, sleeping at Everest Base Camp, going on safari in l Chitwan National Park on the border of Nepal and India, and cruising down the Ganges on a sunrise cruise at Varanasi.

Organizing many successful trips for friends and traveling with groups of different sizes, led to entering into the world of tour guiding on a professional basis. Both are qualified group leaders who have a particular interest in escorting groups from Australia in the 45 - 65 y.o. age bracket as they feel this is an age group often overlooked by some of the larger international tour operators, but will escort groups of 8 or more of any age. Steve and Ann are happy to tailor a holiday to suit any number of clients and to offer a convenient free slide/information night in Melbourne for small groups.  Advice on an appropriate training schedule and the right equipment is also available.

For those clients joining an escorted group, there is also the opportunity to join training walks in the months preceeding a trip as a chance to meet other prospective travelling companions, try out equipment and experience walking in a terrain similar to what will be encountered in Nepal.
