Reviews

Roselyn Plummer, Australia My family of six decided to vacation in Nepal in the beginning of spring this year and Nepal Hiking Team was recommended to us by a friend who had done the Everest Base Camp with the agency before. It was the best vacation for us because we were given easy routes during the trek. The best thing about the service was that our guides, Arun and Paban, were both very co-operative and helped along each and every step of the way for my family. During the hikes, we had the freedom of adjusting our paces and we were provided with good services at the guesthouses and the lodges as well. It was a great way to spend time with the family and everyone really enjoyed the views of the Himalayas as well. The kids enjoyed the hikes and the scenery of the Everest, while me and my wife loved how everything was taking place in a very problem-free manner. Luckily, none of got sick during the journey and the whole time was spent with just us enjoying the moments. It was an exemplary holiday for my family and we made good friends with our guides. Our thanks also goes to our porters as well who hauled our heavy bags across the mountains. Mr. Ganga also met us at the airport for the welcome and the goodbye. We were complimented with a delicious goodbye celebration dinner at the end of the trip, which was very considerate of the agency. We are grateful to Nepal Hiking Team, to our guides, our porters and everybody who were involved in the trip. We would definitely be choosing NHT again if we decide to have another vacation in Nepal in the future!
Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
