NEPAL TOURS

Home to the world's largest mountain range, Nepal provides some of the best trekking experiences this planet has to offer. The landlocked Asian nation is a paradise for adventurous types, although it also features an abundance of culture with beautiful palaces, temples and shrines adorning the Kathmandu Valley, gorgeous mountain vistas overlooking Pokhara, and national parks rich with wildlife. These are all just waiting to be discovered on one of our Nepal tours.

Explore the lowlands and sprawling capital city of Kathmandu, soaking in all its historic feel courtesy of the medieval squares and shrines complemented by bustling streets, shops and restaurants. Many old temples, monasteries and stupas are dotted around the country for those seeking some history, along with the thrills of white water rafting, cycling and more. Our Nepal holidays also visit the lowland Terai region which has some spectacular wildlife parks for spotting wild elephants, rhinos, tigers and exotic birds in their natural habitat.

Whatever you hope to get out of your trip to the country, all our small group tours in Nepal set off from Kathmandu and offer something different. Prepare well and take the traditional yet tough trek to Everest Base Camp, enjoy a comprehensive journey covering west to east through jungle regions and ancient hilltop villages or opt for a shorter jaunt with our Nepal Exposed tour if you're on a tighter schedule. Our private & tailor-made holidays can be customised as much or as little as you like, so you can book onto one of our Nepal tours to see this beautiful country in all its glory in a way that suits you.

TOUR REVIEWS

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....

Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
Excellent

I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.

The trip was excellent and very well run, we have no complaints it was exactly as we expected.The guide was knowledgable and courteous, it ran on time and accommodation was fine.We have no complaints and have now booked again to go to India.
The trip was as above and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, all destinations were as expected and lived up to our expectations.We went with the idea of visiting Turkey and especially Gallipoli which achieved our goals.The historical part of thetrip was very well done and memmorable.
