We had been on a long trip through South America, NZ, Thailand, Laos and China when we came to Pakistan. We had problems with the stubborn Chinese emigration officers; they did not let us pass without a Pakistani visa in our passport although we definitely knew that we get our visa on the Pakistani border. Well, I stumbled across the company on the internet & got an ample opportunity to find Active Tours Pakistan by Mr. Karim helped us and when we came to the border post in Sost his Welcome to Pakistan! Made us forget our worries and our anger on the Chinese.
We loved this country most part of Hunza, Rakaposhi and Fairy Meadows and the whole Karakorum Highway were stunning. We learned in a short time much more than in other countries with the well-informed Karim. Thanks a lot for a wonderful time in your country.
Now, almost 2 month back in our home country, we had to answer a lot of these was best? questions. And when we say Pakistan they can’t believe it.
Thank you so very much. You have cared for us so…… well. It was a pleasure to get to know you. Thank you for carrying my backpack & even I could improve my English.
May the lord bless you and your incredible country!!! You are welcome to Germany! See you ….

Karim Uddin from Active Tours Pakistan is the 1st to respond with details and suggestions. He consistently followed up with me on my interest and customised needs. He’s very patient, knowledgeable and helpful with my queries.
We liaised for 4 months and in Pakistan, Abdul Ghafoor was assigned to me as a guide.
It was perfect. Ghafoor is very professional and an excellent guide. He is always punctual and took great care in ensuring that the trip went according to the itinerary. And it did!!
We went to Hunza Valley, Gilgit, Fairy Meadows. He is adamant in making sure that our safety is his priority. He took good care of us be it while trekking up Fairy Meadows to burning of the woods every night to keep us warm and replenishing us with clean water every single day etc. And Karim is checking on our status and safety every morning without fail. Such professionalism. Thumbs up!
It’s a priceless adventure trip and I highly recommend Active Tours Pakistan to anyone who is thinking of exploring the beauty of Pakistan. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to enjoy Pakistan with utmost security.
It will be a beautiful memory for life.
Thank you Karim and Abdul Ghafoor. You guys rock!!!

I have used many tour companies in many countries and I must say that Active Tours Pakistan is the best company that I have used and Pakistan is one of the most spectacular countries that I have visited.
From the start and right through the planning stage, the company owner, Mr Karim Uddin was incredibly helpful, promptly replying to my many emails and addressing all of my concerns. Mr Karim assisted with the visa process and invitation letter and everything ran very smoothly. I spent 17 days in Pakistan with the company, guided by Mr Karim. The experience is something that will stay with me forever, from the beauty of the mosques of Lahore to the spectacular Hunza Valley, via glaciers, lakes and the most stunning mountain scenery that I have seen anywhere on the planet. The people were all very friendly and accommodating and Mr Karim went out of his way to make sure that we felt happy and comfortable at all times. He really went above and beyond what would normally be expected of a tour operator. As for safety, we felt 100% safe at all times as Mr Karim was in constant contact with the relevant agencies. At no point did we worry. We felt in very safe hands. Oh, and we met a snow leopard. Incredible
My trip to Pakistan could only have been possible with the help of Active Tours Pakistan. The company gave me very personal treatment – and made sure I was safe for the entire duration of my stay. Throughout your journey with Active Tours, you are likely to become great friends with their guides, just as I have through our shared experiences of this incredible country.
We were three Thai ladies and a retired Norwegian bureaucrat, wishing to travel up the Karakoram Highway (KKH) from Islamabad, into China and onwards to Kashgar and by air back to Islamabad. This would require a visa to China and a double entry visa to Pakistan. To get this the Embassy of Pakistan in Bangkok said such a visa could only be issued to people who had been to Pakistan before. The Norwegian had been there (25 years ago!) and consequently got his double entry visa. The Thais had not. So China was dropped..
All western embassies in Islamabad had on their web sites serious warnings about travelling in the country, also on the KKH and the Gilgit-Baltistan area we wanted to visit. We contacted three tours organisers in Islamabad asking for their proposals. The security aspects were discussed in detail with the three tour organisers. We settled for Active Tours as they, i.e. Mr. Karim Uddin, were the most responsive, accurate and flexible ones. Price wise he was in the middle.
It was a tour of contrasts starting in Islamabad in more than 40 centigrades and reaching the Chinese border (at 4721 m) at freezing point and light snowy weather. On the way we experienced Pakistan driving through areas where we saw almost no women and with the curtains closed in the minibus and with police escort, up to the lovely, green Hunza valley where we saw and met pleasant people who were open. Many spoke very good English, both men and women. Here we were introduced to what they called “longevity foods”, i.e. various nuts, fruits, oils etc.We stocked up and are now hoping for long life. People are reputed to have a very high life expectancy in the Hunza valley.
In the border area towards China we saw lots of curious marmots along the road and a herd of around thirty ibex, a type of goat living in the high mountains.
We also did some trekking in the Fairy Meadows area, up to 3.880 m with a clear view to the impressive Nangat Parbat. The Norwegian was surprised to see huge birch trees up to 3.800 m. above sea level. (In Norway you do not find any trees above 900 m above sea level).We were the only foreigners there, but there were quite a number of young, local trekkers, mostly from Lahore and Karachi.
Karim travelled with us all the way and made sure things worked out smoothly. Good company and a man it is a pleasure to work with. He became a good friend. The only disappointment was that by the time we got back to Islamabad, the political situation was rather unstable and it was considered unsafe going to the bazaars for the final shopping….

I had a great time with a private tour guide, I spent 3.5 days in Lahore. The tour was very central on the culture and history of Pakistan and Lahore. The guide and driver were very helpful, after the short trip I did regret not being able to visit Islamabad or some of the areas in the north. The visa process was about average on the difficulty, but the company (Karim) was very helpful in streamlining the process and following up with the consulate when they needed extra information.

I want to thank you with all my heart for showing me the beauty of Pakistan, The country, the people and its culture. I have had a wonderful 2 week in your company and I am sad for this trip to end. But, Inshallah, I will come back to enjoy more of what Pakistan has to offer.
No doubt, the trip, you provided me was with soul food. You are the perfect mix of adventure, and relaxation. You fueled me until the next chance I get to join one of the trips.

I must say that Active Tours Pakistan operated by Mr. Karim Uddin is one of the best tour operators that I have ever met. Their visa supporting service is fantastic and well above my expectation. Their tour guide service once in the country is also excellent. My tour guide and drivers are experienced and friendly. If you are looking for a tour operator in Pakistan, I am very sure that choosing Active Tours will give you the best experience.
After contacting several tourist firms in Pakistan for our short visit to Lahore, and was immediately struck by the professionalism and promptness shown by Active Tours Pakistan, run by Karim Uddin. I never had to wait more than 24 hours for a response from Mr. Uddin, who always answered all inquiries to my satisfaction.
My trip was flawless, being met by tour guide Dilawar Masih just as soon as we clear customs at the Wagah Pakistani-Indian land border. Dilawar not only was extremely knowledgeable about all the tourist sites we visited but also lent us his personal perspective on all aspects of life in Pakistan. As a former tourism guide myself, I can recognize an excellent guide, who showed us all the secret niches of life of Lahore, and who also provided us with excellent samples of the local, delicious cuisine.
Dilawar and his driver were so punctual that you could set your watch to their appointed time schedules. Dilawar provided full guide service, from the moment we stepped into Pakistan, to the last moments as we left the country.
The bus ride from Wagah border to Delhi on the Indian-Pakistani “friendship bus” was an experience in itself, as the bus was given a full police escort all the way from the Indian border to the bus terminal in Delhi.
Active Tours has achieved a level of perfection in its services.
