Chitwan safari & rafting in Nepal
In terms of excitement (and having never done it before) the White Water Rafting was excellent and potentially a new hobby. The stay at Sarangkot was most peaceful and the view of the mountain range at 5.30am in the morning was quite breath taking. Pokhara was a lovely place to stay with an abundance of bars and restaurants. Sunsets at Chitwan was another highlight. (more)Mark Wood
The most memorable part was without a doubt Chitwan National Park! Our guides Krishna and Prakash were amazing! With their careful guiding we were able to see rhinos, crocodiles, deer, wild boar, bison, monkies and many species of birds! Sunset over the river was spectacular and without the light pollution of the city we were able to see hundreds of stars. (more)Simone Bothwell
The whole trip was amazing. We covered a range of environments within Nepal - bustling Kathmandu, the exotic Chitwan jungle resort, Pokhara and the beautiful (and sometimes scary) mountain roads in between. (more)Titus Powell
From US $485 excluding flights
Himalayan cultural tours, Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal
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
Watching the sun go down on Everest on the most perfect evening. Celebrating Diwali with the locals were the most memorable parts of the holiday (more)Rosemary Chinchen
From £2055 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
Nepal trek with Chitwan National Park safari
Everything was done locally, and the guides were great at imparting knowledge about the local area and customs. (more)Bronwyn Russell
Excellent...The whole experience was so full of adventure and different sights and experiences from beginning to end. (more)Mandy Bryan
Chitwan NP... an encounter with a rhino while on a walk. Pretty amazing watching one of these animals come out of the bush, and your there with your guide and helper, each with nothing more than sticks, looking at these large endangered species... won't forget that! (more)David Whetham
From US $849 excluding flights
Langtang Valley trekking holiday, Nepal

Annapurna Circuit & 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 Ė 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

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 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
A fantastic holiday, I could have turned round and done the trek over again. The tour operator, guide and porter were all first-class, and gave excellent service (more)Tony Stiff

Annapurna trekking holiday in Nepal
Memorable parts? This trek was the first of two tours I booked. Walking to Annapurna Base camp was one of the most physically strenuous and rewarding things I have ever done. I guess the most memorable part was getting to the top! Also chatting with all the locals and tourists I met along the way. I was alone with a guide and porter, and they took excellent care of me. Tips? Pack light! Only take what you need, and you always need less than you think. Local benefits? Definitely.... (more)Bronwyn Russell

From £800 - £850 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

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 £2585 - £2790 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

Nepal culture and adventure holiday
Memorable parts? We did it all during this holiday and enjoyed every minute! We toured Kathmandu; went river rafting; enjoyed scenic trekking; and visited Chitwan National Park where we took an elephant safari and got to wash elephants in the river. The tour operator did a fantastic job planning an active itinerary where we had lots of time for activity but also enough time to relax. I would not change a thing! Tips?
