Nepal trek with Chitwan National Park safari
It was absolutely great. I think it would be perfect for groups and solo travellers (I went solo). I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting great diversity and fun. (more)Endija Skopane
Book your flight , pack your bag , seize the day , go ! Just do it ! (more)Lorna Jenkins
Everything was done locally, and the guides were great at imparting knowledge about the local area and customs. (more)Bronwyn Russell
From US $849 excluding flights
Chitwan safari & rafting in Nepal
It was amazing! It's too difficult to select a single moment or city. Nepali people are really terrific. Exploring Chitwan was incredible. (more)Kacey Orlando
Superb! Nothing like it! (more)Naufier Mohamed
8/10. Nepal is a wonderful place....Nepali people obviously were employed and the tour was run locally. (more)Scott McDougall
From US $485 excluding flights
Nepal extreme activity holiday
Brilliant!! The most memorable part has to have been rafting the G4 rapids on the Bhote Koshi with thunder and lightning, rain bouncing off the water and 1.5cm hailstones falling from the sky, still all in 27 degrees heat, wow amazing! (more)Neil Whittemore
I had a brilliant time on this holiday and it fulfilled most of what I wanted to get out of the trip. (more)Murray Hendriksen
From £1690 including domestic flights only
Langtang Valley trekking holiday, Nepal
The guides know the families who run the Tea Houses where we stayed ,and on many occasions we were greeted as old friends ! Also by being in a small group the impact on the environment and in the villages we stayed was not as significant as if we'd been in a larger group. (more)Jane Elliott
The western and Nepali guides and porters were great - always smiling and ready to make sure everyone was happy. An excellent trip in all aspects. (more)patricia barber
This trip has some of the most beautiful nature and scenery you will ever see in your life. (more)Albert Assely
From £935 excluding flights
Himalayan cultural tours, Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal
Nepal desperately needs more tourists to help support the local economy. Don't be put off by the recent earthquake - most of the major sights are still well worth visiting. (more)Stuart Bowden
The whole trip was memorable and exciting but one highlight was the hike up to the Tiger's Nest Monastery in Bhutan - quite a grueling walk for a Sunday afternoon but what memories! Also, visiting Lhasa in February when pilgrims from the furthest reaches of Tibet were there was a joy. (more)Carolynn Peace
The most memorable part of the holiday was seeing new places and meeting new people from completely new cultures. (more)Dietrich Yap
From £2055 excluding flights
Annapurna Circuit and Tilicho Lake trekking holiday
It was incredible, amazing, breathtaking. Simply spectacular. Totally worth it, Nepal is a paradise, and its people are a big part of the good feeling you get there. (more)Laura Murillo
My guide Krishna and porter Ali were helpful throughout with Ali never saying a negative word about my kit bag he was carrying and Krishna being especially on the early morning ascent to Thorong La Pass. He sensibly walked 40/50 paces then stopped for 30 seconds and then on again etc. At that altitude the pace was just right and we made it to the top in wonderful snowy conditions with clear blue skies at 8.30 am – a great memory to have. (more)Len Davison
Nepal is a stunning country but it is being undermined by pollution and corruption. There seems to be an attitude that its ok to overcharge tourists because they are seen as rich by comparison. (more)Jane Crashley
From US $1095 excluding flights
Annapurna trekking holidays
Highlights were waking up the first morning of the trek and seeing the sun hitting the peaks of the mountains. The sights, sounds and smells of Kathmandu. The incredibly friendly people of the villages we passed through. (more)Jane Brandon
The most memorable part of my holiday: waking up on trek and looking out of my tent at the Annapurnas with the rising sun catching the peaks and the truly charming and helpful Nepalese people. (more)Margaret Pitt
From £1170 excluding flights
Kathmandu to Delhi overland holiday
Memorable parts? Varanasi was amazing and provided a great stay. Tips? Just go for it, you will love it, whether you are used to travelling or not, everyone on our trip enjoyed it and wanted more. Local benefits? On the trip we used local guides, driver etc which supported jobs in the various towns and cities. Using public transport ie the trains helped us get to various places easily and economically. Overall rating? Amazing, a must do for everyone. The guide was... (more)Joanne Rogers
From £705 - £1075 excluding flights

From £888 excluding flights
Activity holiday in Nepal
Elephant bath time at Chitwan, the chilled out atmosphere in Pokhara and the people I met along the way were the most memorable parts of this trip. (more)andrew noble
The mountain flight to Everest from Kathmandu, and bathing with an elephant in Chitwan National Park were the most memorable parts. (more)Fiona Scott
The scenery is breathtaking, the people wonderful and the rafting was so good. Chitwan was a totally different world and we felt very pampered and spoilt. (more)Liz Rowe
From £1250 excluding flights
Everest hiking holiday
Awe-inspiring mountains, glorious sunsets and beautiful views from the moment you woke to the moment you went to bed...11/10! I cannot praise the organisation, leadership, care and ethos of this company highly enough. (more)Christine Mitchell
This was an excellent trip, very well organised and handled locally in difficult circumstances when we found ourselves in the heaviest snowfall in the Everest region for 5 years and plans had to be changed. Exciting stuff!!! (more)Alan Bellamy
The highlight was the panoramic views of all the key mountains (Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Shortse, Thamerserku, Ama Dablem, etc) near the Ama Dablam base camp. (more)Owen Smith
From £1390 excluding flights

The trekking was absolutely amazing! The views each day were breathtaking and the scenery changed by day - we went from lush green paddy fields to rocky morane and isolation to dessert - it was awesome. (more)Lindsey Bunn
The sights and views are what I will remember the most, as well as the different characters I encountered on the trail. (more)Edgar Ampil

Delhi to Kathmandu tour
Each day was packed with memorable moments, but if I had to pick one day it would be when we went to a very small town to stay in a fort/castle overnight. It was fantastic. I can't wait to go back one day. (more)Lindsey Lavaysse
Had a great trip... seing Rhino from the back of an elephant was one of the most memorable experiences. (more)jenny hickey

Holiday was great overall, trekking fabulous, Kathmandu an experience like no other and Chitwan great for wildlife especially birds. (more)Alan Vanhinsbergh

The most memorable part of the holiday was that I managed to get up to Poon hill 3210m even though I am in my late 70's. A lot was due to the wonderful guide and porter who encouraged me all the way. (more)Karoline Lamb
From US $1095 excluding flights
Nepal holiday, cultural tour

Himalayan cultural tour, Bhutan and Nepal
Outstanding - an adventure plus spiritual pilgrimage. (more)Merlene Nieuwoudt
The friendliness of the people we met in both Nepal and Bhutan was one of the highlights of the trip. ...I thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and would recommend the tour brothers Achut and Keshav who run the tour company. (more)Margaret Good
Excellent. The places are really worth seeing, people are all very kind, the guides were all absolutely wonderful. The young guide in Bhutan and the driver really did all that they could to get the most and the best out of the time we had. (more)Laura Palmucci
From £1943 excluding flights
Annapurna Circuit trek, Nepal
Overall we had an amazing holiday. This was partly down to the breathtaking scenery of the mountains, the beauty of lakeside Pokhara and the bustling excitement of Kathmandu, but mostly down to the quality of service provided by the operator who made the task of trekking for 11 days a really comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable experience. (more)Kylie Ackers
Fantastic. We had a great time and this is mainly due to our travel agent who did an amazing job. (more)Marc Siat
The whole trip was AMAZING, but being in the mountains was my favourite part - especially since my guide and porter were so great. (more)Mandy LG
From £1040 excluding flights
Full Moon Festival & Shamanism, Nepal
My husband, my 11-year-old son and I, booked our trek with this operator per your instructions July 27th. We stayed in Nepal for the entire month of August. The Full Moon Festival and Shamanism trek was amazing. There is so much I could say about our personal growth and the incredible views that I could write a book. The staff at this operator is wonderful. They were on top of all communications. They answered our emails each day, when we arrived we were met at the airport by Nima Lama, who was... (more)Michele Em
From £508 excluding flights
Gokyo Everest trek in Nepal
Memorable parts? Seeing the sun rise behind Everest at the top of Kalapathar. Tips? I would recommend going to Gokyo as well as Kalapathar as it's much quieter with very few of the big groups going to Everest Base Camp. Also, because my guide was flexible, we managed to avoid the groups quite a lot of the time even on the EBC route. The views from Gokyo Ri were also stunning. Local benefits? I feel that it benefited local people. I was also happy to see that the company organised... (more)Rachel Allen
From US $1375 excluding flights
Nepal family holiday
Memorable parts? Staying with our 3 young (9, 8 & 3) children in a village community homestay. The villagers and local guides were all fantastic! Tips? Don't hesitate, just do it! Local benefits? Yes, especially in Chitwan where we stayed for 3 days in a Tharu village homestay. Overall rating? We spent 8 days there over Christmas (including Christmas day itself in Kathmandu). It will certainly be a Christmas that we and the children will always remember as one of the... (more)Philip Langman
From £1295 - £1335 excluding flights

This was an outstanding Trek and an overall wonderful experience...The trekking in Mustang was quite magnificent. It is probably the most amazing mountain scenery we have ever experienced. (more)Michael Cooke

From US $1375 excluding flights
Beijing to Kathmandu tours, Mountains & Monasteries
All of the holiday was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the train journey from Beijing to Lhasa. The visit to the nunnery was fun. There was nothing on my trip that I didn't enjoy so it's hard to choose 1 thing I enjoyed most. (more)Jules Palmer
Excellent....Go with an open mind, an attitude of adventure. It is a different country. You will not find the same facilities as at home. The food is different. But it's all part of the adventure. (more)Yoginee Patel
It was very memorable and exciting, and a good idea to go on a tour through a country that would be difficult to navigate alone. (more)Laura Tomlinson
From £2560 - £3560 excluding flights
Annapurna Sanctuary trek in Nepal
It really was the holiday of a lifetime. The 9 day trek round Annapurna Sanctuary has to be the highlight. This was made even more memorable by having the most amazing Sherpa guide and porter. (more)Gina Crowcroft
