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
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
Nepal trek with Chitwan National Park safari
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
Nepal is a very fascinating. It's chaotic, loud, polluted, crazy in the cities and quiet, pure and serene in the countryside. It is fascinating that you can travel from the hot, flat jungle with amazing wildlife to towns with palaces and loads of cultural sites or to snow-covered, cool mountains in less than a day. (more)Iris Simon
From US $849 excluding flights
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
From £1090 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 £1290 excluding flights
Annapurna circuit trekking holiday
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
From £1388 excluding flights
Annapurna Sanctuary trekking holidays
The most memorable bit was the outstanding scenery.....Extremely satisfied. (more)Kim Wood
Excellent; an enlightening and refreshing experience... The overall experience of being surrounded by the mountain ranges was truly indescribable. (more)Jenny Williams
From £1829 - £1949 including UK flights
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
From £672 - £1000 excluding flights
Nepal holiday, cultural tour
Memorable parts? So many great things its hard to choose one...flying over Mount Everest in a small plane, seeing sunrise over the Annapurnas, elephant safari in Chitwan Tips? Make sure you bring apropriate clothing eg colours of clothing in Chitwan so camaflourged in jungle Local benefits? We had 3 different local guides (all very good) in Katmandu, Pokhara & Chitwan.

From £395 excluding flights
Annapurna Sanctuary trek & Chitwan safari
Holiday was great overall, trekking fabulous, Kathmandu an experience like no other and Chitwan great for wildlife especially birds. (more)Alan Vanhinsbergh
10 out 10! I had an adventure of a life time and made some new friends. I will be going back again definitely! (more)Jordan Mann
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
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 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 US $1095 excluding flights
Family adventure holiday to Nepal
The whole experience will live with us forever and it is almost impossible to single out separate elements. Overall the people were fantastic, so friendly, helpful and humorous and our guide was simply outstanding. (more)Andrew Mackay
The most exciting part was the snow - so long since we have had 'real' snow in the south of England. (more)Jilly Knight
The trek was an excellent adventure - Jagan, our guide was outstanding, especially with our children (7 & 5 years old) who were able to walk the entire trek! (more)Lisa Kelly
From £2004 - £2195 including UK 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 £3210 excluding flights
Mustang trekking holiday in the Himalaya
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
I would rate my trip to the Annapurnas as being one of the best trips I've ever done. My guide & porter were excellent company, they took excellent care of me. (more)Rodney Finlay
From US $1186 excluding flights
Everest base camp trek
The most memorable part was reaching Everest Base Camp and conquering Thorung La Pass on the Annapurna Circuit!!! In reality however there were many more!! (more)Edmund Raczkowski
It was fantastic! I had a beautiful and relaxing time (even though it was a physical challenge. My guide was knowledgeable and fun and I met some great people along the way! (more)Veronica Baker
Standing at Kalapathar watching the sun rise over the Himalayas was the most memorable part. (more)Leonard Parker
From US $1375 excluding flights
Annapurna trekking holiday, Rhododendron trek
This was an exceptional trip, of course due to the stunning mountains, but mostly because of the fantastic work of the team. They made us feel welcome, safe and entertained. It's easy to see the tangible effects of benefiting the local people. Many of the teahouses exist only because of the people coming through on treks. This is particularly important now after the devastation of the earthquake. (more)Emma Collver
Travelling through the villages you will see the women working in the paddy fields. Drinking masala tea overlooking the Phewa Tal against a backdrop of the mountains was wonderfully relaxing after the 6 day trek. (more)Gill Craig
This was an excellent holiday, a great experience... Superb mountain scenery, a good challenging trek, really interesting culture, very warm and friendly Nepali people (including the guide and porter)... (more)Mike Schofield
From US $594 excluding flights
Annapurna Circuit trek
Memorable parts? The scenery. Tips? Go ahead, you will be well looked after. Local benefits? Yes employed local people instead of yaks. Overall rating? It provided everything I hoped for. (more)Tim Wilkins
From £1390 excluding flights
Annapurna Circuit trekking holiday
The challenge of walking some 200km over a high pass over a period of 16 days. And seeing some beautiful scenery on the way. (more)David Taylor
A great walk - each day somehow managed to be better than the last. (more)Ian Pollitt
From £2099 - £2399 including UK flights
Classic Nepal holiday
Memorable parts? Just being in the Himalayas trekking was a most awesome experience. Tips? Make sure you get a fluent English speaker for a guide and one with experience and true enjoyment doing what he/she does. Local benefits? I am not sure.....it seemed this was booked then booked with another company and then booked again with a local company so I am not sure how much went back to Nepal and the people there. Overall rating? (more)Kat Mut0
From £999 - £1099 excluding flights
Nepal charity trek and yoga holiday
Two months later I am still bowled over by the beauty of the country and how welcome I was made to feel. I am sure I am annoying my friends because I can't stop talking about it! (more)Sarah Dyer
The most memorable parts were trekking through the most beautiful valley's and seeing the most beautiful view's I've ever seen... totally losing myself to the beauty of mother nature and the beauty of Nepal. (more)Trudy McIntosh
From £715 excluding flights
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? Just let the good folks at Friendship Tours know what you want... (more)Courtney Stryker
From US $590 excluding flights
Nepal wildlife safari and rafting holiday
Memorable parts? White water rafting and seeing the sun rise over the Himalayas Tips? If you make any changes to the set itinerary, get them confirmed in writing from the company Friendship Travel because they messed ours up Local benefits? It benefitted local people to some extent as the people we dealt with were all Nepali. Chitwan is very pro-conservation so visiting it probably helps the protection of animals there from poachers. Overall rating? (more)Debbie Owen
From US $390 excluding flights
Travel from Nepal, India to the Maldives, Summit to Sea
Memorable parts? Meeting the children along the way. Tips? Take a pillow and a towel and if going at the same time, not as many clothes for the cold weather as I did, as it was not that cold. Take ear plugs if you want to sleep. Local benefits? Not enough information to assess. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Roger Pollard
From £2490 excluding flights
Everest base camp trek
Memorable parts? Reaching base camp. Tips? Don't book with this operator as they cannot guarantee to get you home on time! Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? (more)Maxine Howells
From £1999 - £2399 including UK flights
