My partner and I had a fantastic tour experience during our 3 days in Kathmandu. Everything was taken care of from the airport pickup, centrally located hotel, driver and tour guide.
The tour was fantastic and took us to all the main sites we wanted to go to in Kathmandu, with additional flexibility to go to any places that weren’t in the original tour itinerary if you wanted.
We had a great experience with Everest Tour Nepal, everything went off without a hitch! We will definitely use them again if we find ourselves travelling in Nepal!
Nepal at its charming best
We visited Nepal in May 2022 and visited Kathmandu, Pokhara, Jomsom, Mukthinath, Bhaktapur and Chandragiri. All arrangements were fabulous and we were made to feel totally comfortable throughout our stay. All hotels were good, clean and customer friendly. In short, Everest Tour, our tour facilitator was outstanding in all aspects of hospitality. Kudos to them, particularly we will single out Mr Navaraj our tour guide.
It was our first time trekking in Nepal and from the very beginning everything was perfect. Instant reply with custom made package along only for us with great price and we instantly booked it. We were warmly welcomed at airport and headed to remote Rara lake. Such a serene lake and the Himalayas. Without any hesitation we recommend this company for your trekking trip in Nepal.
My experience in Nepal was awesome. People are so friendly and courteous. It was so majestic and should definitely be on your list of travels. I’m definitely going to visit again in the future…
