A superb tour from start to finish, was a little tiring as so much was crammed in to the days available. Was well organized and our guide: Baikuntha Simkhadu (B.K) was outstanding throughout. He really made the tour extra special.

Amazing place to go to see wildlife and different cultures. Nepal is so varied which gives you a good choice of things to do from trekking to bird watching or canoeing on the lake in Pokara.

The trip was surely an amazing experience. The program is well planned and perfectly executed. Nepal has so much to offer and within 10 days we got a taste of the culture, religion, activity (omg the trekking!!), scenery, animal watch, etc. I met many cool people in the trip and we all enjoyed every single minute of it. LOVE IT!!! p.s. there is no other comments here so I put mine here - everyone wants a G Adventures tee. I wanted it since my last G Adventures trip at Mayan Sun. how come it's so hard to get one?

The staff were all fantastic. Our leader was great, going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we had what needed and that we had a great experience. The porters were really friendly, willing to share their music with us, and always had a very positive attitude. The accommodations were exactly what I was expecting. It was nice to have a variety. The tea houses brought us that much closer to the local people, and all the hotels in the cities were very nice.
