Nepal Tour Review

12 Day best of Nepal

Wonderful trip with Rabi and his team. Ahead of arrival he answered our many questions quickly and courteously. We had planned to include 4 days in Bhutan but the virus meant a last minute change. Rabi quickly readjusted and fairly repriced the itinerary. Lots of driving on Nepal’s dreadful roads but the car was new and comfortable and Bikram an excellent and safe driver. Hotels all very good, especially the amazing Himalaya View at Sarangkot. Other highlights were wildlife spotting in Chitwan, hiking in the Sarangkot hills and the amazing temples and galleries of Patan.
Rabi is a highly knowledgeable guy who can chat about everything from history to politics and religion. Also very eco and animal conscious. 100% recommended, thanks Rabi!
