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.

I am a person that sets a bar high for everything. For a vacation as well it is difficult to please me. But, this tour of the fantastic destinations of Nepal has me on my knees. Never before had I felt about a place like here. I was humbled by the majestic views and magical monuments of Pokhara and Kathmandu.
I selected Everest vacation randomly and I had a few expectations. But, the tour organized by the team and assistance provided by Umesh was very helpful. Even during the hikes here, I had every help available to make everything smooth. As a solo traveler, I was amazed at the photography skills of my guide too. I recommend Netra and Everest Vacation for a pristine vacation in Nepal.
