We had an amazing Mardi Himal trek. We booked last minute and we were dealt with promptly and professionally. The trek was fully customisable including a stay in a lovely hotel and bus rides to and from Kathmandu. Our guide Amir was awesome and made our trek everything we wanted. Thank you so much!

We hebben echt genoten van onze trekking naar ABC. Jammer genoeg waren er echter overal problemen met de kamer. We hebben dan expres via een agency geboekt en meer betaald, zodat we zeker een kamer overal zouden krijgen. Dit bleek dan een probleem te zijn, omdat er niets op voorhand was geboekt. Ook hebben we last minute (letterlijk 5 min voor de 1e ontmoeting) een bericht van Hari gekregen dat we een andere guide zouden krijgen. Hierbij kregen we geen uitleg. De nieuwe guide had geen EHBO kit mee en wist ook helemaal niet wat allemaal inbegrepen was in onze boeking. Dit was opzich geen probleem, maar het leek plots allemaal niet meer zo goed georganiseerd als het beloofde te zijn. Ondanks dit hebben we echt wel genoten van onze tocht en zijn we blij dat we het gedaan hebben.
