November Tour Review

Well looked after and a great holiday!

I, along with my wife arranged a 10 day ­holiday in Nepal with Rabi in November 2018. Our tour included Kathmandu, Chitwan, Pokhara and Bandipur with all surrounding attractions.
Rabi was very prompt in replying and sending itineraries to suit our needs. He was so good in looking after our comforts in our hotels. He made sure to visit us everyday while we were in Kathmandu and even accompanied us as guide in Kathmandu and in Bandipur. He was very polite and got an in depth knowledge of everything about the history. We did not have enough time and energy to go around to all the places he intended to take us around.
