Reviews

We had an amazing trip to Kathmandu and Pokhara and really couldn’t recommend Surya and his team highly enough. Everything was so well organized but also very flexible and it was no problem for us to make a few changes to our itinerary during our trip. We will definitely be back to Nepal and will definitely be contacting Surya!

We just did a trekking tour with this company and I must say it was organised perfectly. Everything was smooth and trouble free! Our guide Babu was very knowledgable about the mountains and Nepal in general. My next trek will be definitely with the same guys, highly recommendable.
