Clients’ comments

Could I please pass on my thanks to my excellent guides both in Kathmandu and Lhasa. I took a great food tour in Kathmandu which involved nipping around the back streets on Vespa scooters! The food was great. I had lassi, samosas, sweet Tibetan food, water buffalo Mo Mo (dumplings) and traditional Newali food. The Mo Mo  were out of this world, I loved them, could eat them all day!

Bring on Mustang next year! I spoke to many guides who had been there, it sounds brilliant.”

“Excellent drivers, hotels were just wonderful, our holiday experience was just excellent. When we wanted to change our room in Kathmandu you arranged it quickly and efficiently”

“I had three priorities — to see Namche Bazaar, to visit the Hillary School and to get views of Everest. Three out of three. Mission accomplished! The best decision I made was to travel alone.”
