    Best memorable PoonHill trek with GoodVibe Adventure

    Rating:

    Good Vibe Adventure like the name offered us great trekking vibe which made us think about coming back Nepal for the Upper Mustang trip on the nearly last day of the trek:) After researching and contacting with other agency we decided to go with GoodVibe Adventure as they were very responsive since the first day we made inquiry and pricing was very reasonable for us. They event applied TIM cards for us before we arrived to pay them. We took 5 days PoonHill trek and had Ramkrishna as the guide and Chandra as porter to support. They were friendly helpful along the trip, ensured we had room with great view and well-served meals . We were first time trekkers in this kind of 5’days trek and i’m not the gym person so Ram was patiently waiting for me to catch up and ensure we were able to cope wit the trek. Along the way we accumulated knowledge about Nepal culture and lifestyle with him too. That last five days trip we didn’t need to worry anything from transportation , accommodation to meals. Kisan picked us right at the airport at the late night to our hotel, we took private car to Pokhara starting the trek from Nayapul. On the way back to Kathmandu they arranged us very comfortable tourist bus with free breaki and lunch.Also upon departing in the tourist bus,my friend realized that she left her favorite tumble in our private car we hired in pokkara and Ramkrisna has gone beyond his call of duty to search and returned it to my friend.therefore we would like to highlight and thank Ram for it. They also arranged the car to pick us at the bus station and drove up to Nagarkot and city tours after that. We would highly recommended this agency for their dedication service, friendliness and great support for tourist .  We think that we are very lucky to have such fantastic memory on our 1st trip to Nepal,mostly with the thoughtful and dedicated service of Kisan,Ram andChandra.So thank you and hope to see you again soon,for upper Mustang! -from Anh and Thanh

    Shortly after arriving at Kathmandu airport and by pure chance I met Kisan Thapa of Good Vibe Adventure and we became fast friends. He immediately ordered a taxi and recommended that I stay at the lovely Hotel Sweet Town in Kathmandu followed by a meeting at his office. Kisan organised everything for me including fantastic 5 day Himalaya trekking with private guide, transfers, return flight, mountain passes etc. etc. at a great price. Kisan is a very honest, articulate and caring young man with great tenacity. Thank you so much for making my stay in Kathmandu very special and memorable. I very highly recommend this company and I speak as someone who has many years travelling experience.

    My friends and I booked a 5-day Poon Hill trek from Kisan at Good Vibe. Communication was prompt and Kisan helped to arrange a guide, porter, domestic flights, accommodation and meals for our trek. Even a city day tour of Kathmandu when we had a free day. When our domestic flight from Pokhara to Kathmandu was cancelled, Kisan quickly arranged for a car to bring us to Kathmandu airport, and even followed us to the airport to ensure that we caught our connecting flight back to Singapore. Top notch hospitality.
