"The International Mountain & River Guide education has opened doors to a new world for me. I have gained the opportunity to work in the most exciting places.
I work at a mountain resort, raft guiding rivers in both Sweden and Norway, and I will spend the winter season as a snow scooter guide in the Arctic. In-between I had the opportunity to summit Kilimanjaro - Africa's highest peak!"

"I had the most amazing 14 weeks of my life! I learned more than I thought possible, while making lifelong friends. Furthermore, I have gained so much confidence and I have grown tremendously.
I am so grateful for this amazing opportunity!!"

"The Adventure Guide internship at Royal Beach Camp has been a great chance for our students to get hands-on experience of the business of adventure tourism.
In addition, it has given them a unique insight into a different culture and has truly been an experience of a life time!"

"I met Ram in 1998 when he organised the first Himalayan British Army Kayaking Expedition in Nepal.
I was immediately reassured and captivated by his enthusiasm, passion for adventure and incredible skill on the river. His local knowledge, expedition expertise and organisational skills were faultless. He was instrumental to the impressive success of this ambitious expedition.
I place total trust in his adventure operation, his ethos and passion for safe, fun and challenging adventure."
