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!
Just finished a 30 day tour of Northern Pakistan and it was truly spectacular. Annequa put together a wonderful itinerary for us and yet was totally flexible when we needed to make changes, for whatever reason. Nothing was too much trouble and we were well and truly looked after every step of the way, turning an already outstanding experience into a spectacular one. We have only just left and are already talking about a return visit. It really would be difficult to overstate how wonderful Mad Hatters were.

Me and and a couple of friends who like me have terrible schedules and tough routines turned to Aneeqa for planning a trip. We basically left each and everything to Aneeqa to decide, plan and arrange for us and it was done! Everything turned out to be super well organised and we came back totally pampered and spoiled. At this stage in life we really can’t take the pains of saving a penny here and a penny there and trying to plan a trip…so we left it to the pro! This was my second trip to skardu and i discovered things and places the previous tour operators didn’t include in our itinerary….
I would definitely plan another trip with the mad hatters and recommend to all other people to do the same… especially if you value professionalism and adventure above all other things. All the best to the mad hatters and thank you for the vacation!
Had a great experience in their Skardu trip. Focus was on quality as the accomodation & transportation and overall organization was much better compared to our previous trips to North. Aneeqa’s professionalism was quite exemplary. Would definitely recommend Mad Hatters to everyone travelling upcountry.
