“Knowledgeable Company with Great Guides“
Rabi and his team are very knowledgeable and cooperative. Before coming to Nepal my friend and I communicated with Rabi a lot via email and he always answered our questions quickly. We were doing Ghorepani poon Hill Trek in the Annapurna Mountain rang. We needed to make some changes so we could fit everything in during our short time in Nepal and Rab was very helpful accommodating. We met our guide the first day and he even showed us around a bit of Kathmandu. I had an extra day and half more in Kathamndu then my friend and Rabi went out of his way to make sure I saw Bhaktapur and some other site in city.
Our trek was the highlight of our trip though. Our guide was Nabin and we trusted him completely! We also had great porter Madhur who did great job to make our trip successful. We stayed in lovely tea houses and Nabin took excellent care of us. Nabin was not just knowledgeable and helpful, he was so much fun! We never had to worry for anything. Nabin knew exactly where we should stand for the best views and the best photos,
I was impressed with this company and their experience. Rabi, Nabin and even our porter made sure we had great trip. Thans to all of them for our great experience in Nepal, We will definitely be back!
