What travelers say

  • Sigfrido C. from Spain
    Apr 2015

    Nepal, a new experience, a new world. From the moment of the reservation, Santoshi was polite, understanding, caring and professional at all moments. My advice is to tell her what kind of journey would you like, and just let her organize it all for you, you will not be disappointed. For us, we wanted a cultural-adventure honeymoon trip and she organized for us a trip around Katmandu with private driver and guide, Everest Mountain Flight (Don´t miss this one!) Safari in Chitwan National Park, and a overnight stay in a hotel Close to the Himalayas. The price is cheap for what you receive, friendliness of the guides, drives (I wish the driver spoked better English), Fast transfers in a crowded city, they invited us to cultural programs (traditional music dances) an a bunch of dinner (Delicious Nepali food, pd; ASK FOR MOMO). I really recommend to come to Nepal, get to know the culture and let Santoshi guide you trough your journey.

    I just want to thank you and your team for the great arrangements you have done for us. Honestly, we were very glad and happy with your accuracy and sincerity in the arrangements. We already informed all friends and family and your great arrangements and all were enthusiastic to come and visit Nepal. Keep the good job, and wish you Nepal a great future and all the best.

    We were very pleased with the tour guide, he was great. We were picked up everywhere on time and the car was always ready. The Gokarna Hotel was wonderful, we loved it, the kids especially. We had a great time and it is clear to us how much attention and care the country and its people pit into welcoming the visitors. I have been recommending it to everyone I talk to at work. Thank you for the great job you did in organizing our trip. Best Wishes.
