Best Travel Company: showing how it is done

We booked a 6-day tour in two beautiful cities of Nepal. Kathmandu and Pokhara were both suggestions from our dear friend who was here last summer. Our second time enjoying a trip conducted by Everest Vacation, and we knew they will do a great job. The experience turned out to be better with an unexpected stop to Bandipur courtesy of Netra and Umesh. The paragliding from Sarangkot perfectly completed our tour and we were a happy couple after this holiday. I have a few plans in my bag for my next visit to Nepal and there are few companies to do it with then Everest Vacation.

Good people and great service at a remarkable price

Well, we a family tour overlapping the Hindu Festival of Dashain last year with Everest Vacation, and it was perfect. Netra helped us to time this tour of Kathmandu, Chitwan, and Pokhara. We enjoyed the festival while exploring different heritage sites of Kathmandu. My kids loved the safari at Chitwan. And, the paragliding at Sarangkot, was something I will remember for a long time to come. For a family tour there comes many things under consideration. Everest Vacation changed a few things for an ideal tour here. Similarly, the price was competitive too. For the service we had, I would be happy to pay even more without any hesitation. With humble people, great hospitality, and reasonable price, I recommend Everest Vacation for a family tour in Nepal.

Impressive Cultural & Scenic Beauty

I must admit Nepal is culturally blessed. The scenic natural beauty of Nepal impressed me. The adventurous activities that I took on my cultural scenic tour were dreamlike. The Elephant ride in Chitwan was fun. The Sunrise view and Boating on Phewa Lake were blissful. The spiritual and peaceful feeling in Lumbini was enigmatic. The temples, decorative palaces, and artistic works in Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur Durbar Squares were marvelous. Swayambhunath, Bouddhanath, and Pashupatinath were distinct but wonderful to visit. I am grateful to Umesh and the team of Everest Vacation for smoothly arranging this tour. Strongly commended.
