    Affordable and Highly recommended tour organizer

    My family of 3 are very happy that we chose Good vibe, the owner kisan was very responsive to all our needs and he even treat us for lunch . That was an extra mile on top of the well organized trips he arranged for us. We availed of the city tour of Kāthmāndu and Bhaktapur and pick up and drop off to our beautiful hotel in Nagarkot but the real highlight of our trip was the Helicopter ride to Everest base Camp,though we had some issues with the tour as it was cut short by one of the passengers who had an early flight to the UK. Kisan was kind and responsive enough to fix things and compensate us with the hassle created by this. We understand that this was not Kisan’s fault but that of Manang Air as they are the ones who accomodated the guy with an early flight which resulted to our tour being cut short (separate review of Manang Air ) Overall we were happy with the services of Good vibe and will use their service again as they also arrange tours to Tibet and BHutan. Thank you Kisan for taking good care of my family in Nepal.

    Excellent trip

    I used good vibe adventure to book a helicopter flight up to Mount Everest and also a ride for the day to take me to various places around Kathmandu to see the sights. I couldn't have picked a better company. Everything was reasonably priced and the service was very professional and ran very smoothly.

    I was very impressed and I highly recommend using this company for any arrangements you wish to make.

    This photo is me enjoying my view of Everest. Worth every penny.

    I met Mr. Kisan Thapa by chance last year in Kathmandu. We stayed in contact and this year I let him arrange the complete trip for me. From ultralights in Pokhara to local sightseeing to today’s once in a lifetime visit to Everest Base camp by helicopter. Highly recommended. Will be back next year!

    Amazing Time Thanks to Good Vibe Adventure!

    When we met Kisan, one of the owners/directors, at Good Vibe Adventure headquarters, we shared what we wanted to do. He listened to our requests and he tailored our itinerary to exactly what we asked for in a price range that worked for us. Our package included: resort and hotel lodging, a private driver who took us all over the country, hotel expenses, 90% of our meals (including a special Nepalese dinner our last night), a flight to see Mount Everest, bungee jumping, white water rafting, canoeing, an elephant safari, and city village tours. To put it simply, it was incredible! Kisan and his staff ensured we were well taken care of our entire trip--he personally saw to it. We felt as though we were given the best of everything we asked for. Im sure there are other good travel specialists in Nepal, but based on our experience in Nepal, I highly recommend booking your trip Good Vibe Adventure!

    A Perfect Pilgrim

    Divine timing would have me collaborating with a dear colleague and friend of mine whom was looking for something to do during her extended break from work. I was looking for that shift in perception and in my own spirituality Himalaya dreaming since childhood propelling me furthermore I got a lot more than what I sought when embarking upon this magnificent pilgrimage into the heart. Our facilitator (and now the company owner), Keshab would have to be one of the most courteous, warm, knowledgeable and responsive people I have been blessed to encounter. The service you will receive in his care is of the highest standards competent and flexible. I want to also thank you Keshab for embracing my thirst for Nepalese culture by showing me the real Nepal. Thank you my dear friend. I cant wait to come back trekking with you!! Good-luck Cho-La-Pass Good-luck
