Pakistan had been on my list of countries to visit for many years. I don’t usually use a travel agent when I travel (116 countries to date) but after hearing about a friend’s experience with The Mad Hatters in 2019 I decided to reach out and request a literary. I knew it would be challenging because I wanted a very specific type of travel, wanted to be off the beaten path and things were just opening back up after the 2020 COVID closure. Aneeqa Ali and The Mad Hatter team did a FABULOUS job meeting all my requests and at a VERY reasonable price. I just completed the 32-day tour and I couldn’t be happier about my experience.

Having an experienced/knowledgeable person on the ground that can take your calls and texts 24/7 and respond to requests or solve issues is invaluable in a country like Pakistan. Aneeqa responded quickly when we requested a change in itinerary or wanted to add something. She even took calls late at night to help sort out issues at checkpoints as we traversed the mountains. As a foreigner who doesn’t speak any of many local languages of the mountain regions it was reassuring to know I could call someone and have them bridge the language barrier. Her “can do”, customer-first approach was so refreshing and easy it made the trip carefree which is no small feat in the remote mountains of Pakistan. Her partners and selected local guides were incredible.

My friends and I enjoyed our custom schedule that made our visit to Pakistan a bucket list trip that none of us will ever forget. I HIGHLY recommend Mat Hatters whether you are solo, couple, adventure, nomad, or grouper traveler, Aneeqa can ensure you experience Pakistan in a way you will never forget.

The Mad Hatters is the perfect tour company to use when travelling Pakistan whether you are a foreign visitor or local. I booked a private tour and the price was incredibly reasonable considering it was nearly 3 weeks long. Our itinerary was arranged to suit our interests and we got plenty of help arranging documents for the Visa application back in the UK. We had a brilliant guide and driver and the whole trip went smoothly. Would definitely use them again!

Made a last min decision to travel with Mad Hatters… was very very unsure but trust me I can say that was my BESTTT decision and didn’t regret at all… Aneeqa is a thorough professional and very accommodating. All the arrangements including vehicle, hotels, food were absolutely spot on. Definitely recommend to travel with her specially if you are a solo girl traveler and cant find any friend or sibling to travel with … best ever experience. Will surely do more trips with her in future.
