traveller reviews

We have recently returned from your Everest Base Camp Trek (27th of Oct - 13th of Nov 2014) and we want to let you know how pleased our group was with the care and attention we received. Everything was beyond our expectations and we truly did have the trip of a lifetime. Our Leader Roy and our Team (Nawang, Dawa, Krishna, Tandi, Bikrum, Kayala, Sheri and Rudra) were amazing. We were treated to great food and quality service along the way. We felt well supported, guided, encouraged and taken care of, without being overly pampered. The team were professional, efficient and extremely hard working, with the majority of the work being done behind the scenes without us even knowing. Please can you pass on our sincere thanks and appreciation to all involved.
