“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.”

“Far Frontiers Travel really does offer a tailor-made service. We contact Fiona with a list of what we want to do and see, and she somehow makes it all work. Nothing is ever a problem, and she always creates the itinerary that is exactly what we want. Considering we like to travel independently and really experience the culture of the destination, that is no mean feat.”
