    Great experience with an even better guide.


    My girlfriend and I did a 2 night 3-day trek with our guide Ram. The trekking was incredible with great scenic views throughout. Even better was our guide, Ram. Ram made the trip very enjoyable. He answered all of our questions, took care of any problems, and was an all-around great person to meet. He even took us to his wife's restaurant (which had the best food of the whole trip) when we got back to Kathmandu. Overall a 10/10 experience. I'd recommend it to anyone. Ram! Ram! Ram!

    I've been in Káthmandú the second time, but the first time I took advantage of the tourist guide Ramkrishna Karki, he took me to the most important places of Káthmandú and also we did some tour around of Káthmandú. Mr. Karki is really good professional, always smiling and positive. He responded to my requests with options. He managed all the necessary things (transport, food,....) very well. I'm planning to go on a trek around Annapurna with him. He provided me with enough information and made me felt safe. I highly can recommend him.

    I took one day private tour with this great agency... I had already an idea of the tour I wanted to do but Kisan, the owner, suggested me a partial change to adjust it on my personal preferences (and it fitted perfectly), offering me a very reasonable price.. Ram, the guide, has been so available and kind with me that the day we spent has been marvelous, not only for the landscapes, but also for his lovely being.. I felt like I was going round with my brother!
