We are a group of 5 people from Hong Kong and booked a 10 trekking days + 1 rest day TMB Private Tour from Happy Tracks. We searched around a few companies which offer private tours in parallel but Raphael from Happy Tracks replied the quickest with the details we needed. We had a nice impression from them already.
We chose to stay at hotels as much as possible instead of refuges and we were very satisfied about their arrangements, it felt good to relax and recharge in hotels after a whole-day trekking. Our guide, Dave, is a very experienced, resourceful, knowledgeable gentleman with a sense of humor. Dave gave us a very accurate weather forecast which prepared us mentally and physically and adjusted our route according to weather condition. Occasionally, we were off TMB route which became highlight of the day.
The homemade lunch prepared by Rachel is definitely a bonus. They were in great varieties, delicious, and even including desserts! (we thought we would have dry sandwiches only for everyday).
We would recommend everyone to book with Happy Tracks for TMB Tour if you would like a stress-free planning for the tour with good value for money.
