Unique Destinations

I was just a backpacker wandering on my own while traveling throughout the world. However, this tour of Nepal made me realize the importance of a good guide, especially in a new country. Some of the places I went would never have been on my radar if I was alone. Similarly, the local suggestions in anything from food to shopping areas were just worth it.

I had a well-rounded tour of Kathmandu Bhaktapur and Lalitpur in Nepal. But the highlight for me, if asked, will be the Everest Heli tour. As not a trekking person this was perfect for me to be closer to the Himalayas and Everest itself. I always feel that the passion to do something makes the experience more valuable. My guides here in Nepal as well as the tour operators of Everest Vacation proved it to me. The patience they showed and the urge to give every traveler more is what makes this company different and I highly recommend it.
