What travelers say

  • Roberto & Massimo from Italy
    Jan 2011

    We found this tour operator very good and very knowledgeable in every step we had to take to make this dream come true. They helped us from the first day, when still home we had to chose the right destination... to the very last hour of our trip in Nepal. Our Langtang and Helumbu Trek ended up being a super beautifully great experience, in great places, with great people, and a great guide... You cannot miss Nepal.
