Our company history

Our Nepal Uncovered tours and holidays have developed out of years of enjoying and operating travel in this region, and around the world. The company founders Ralph Foulds & Martin Hosie started working in the travel industry driving and operating truck-based overland expeditions through Asia and the Middle East in the mid 1990s. Many of these trips started or finished in Nepal, and this was to be the start of a deep love for the country and its people. As time went on shorter cultural and adventure tours were added in Nepal, using local partners and staff we'd got to know well over the years.

Following the tragic events in September 2001, and the following war in Afghanistan, we stopped operating overland expeditions through the region and concentrated on small-group and tailor-made tours, mainly in Nepal and Egypt. During the Maoist insurgency traveller numbers to Nepal fluctuated, but we remained committed to sending tourists to the country. In 2006 we launched the Nepal Uncovered brand and website, to better display our wide range of tours in the region. Tours to Bhutan and Tibet were added more recently after we were able to spend sufficient time exploring these fascinating and remote countries.

Today we arrange private and tailor made itineraries to many destinations worldwide through the Uncover the World website. We also organise small-group tours through this Nepal Uncovered website, and also our Egypt Uncovered and Thailand Uncovered websites.

We also run the Adventure Fishing Holidays website, which better showcases a wide range of exciting fishing holidays.
