The BUZZ

"We are back from our 5 day trek to Poon hill in Nepal and are so pleased with how our trip went. Our guide, Jagat Tamang was a fantastic resource and prepared us each evening for the next days events. We thoroughly enjoyed his company. His English was very good, and more importantly as was his patience while my husband and I practiced our Nepali. With such a small group; my husband, myself, our porter Satya and Jagat we quickly found ourselves joking in the evening, sharing cultural customs and teaching each other card games. Sharing the beautiful scenery, rejoicing in gorgeous weather and learning so much from Jagat about Nepal was the heartbeat of our trip. I will be sharing this experience with family and friends for the rest of my life. Thank You for the wonderful memories!"

"Just wanted to let you know that we are back in the States after our trip to Nepal. We had such a lovely time and the weather was thankfully nice. Our guide, Donnie Llama, was fantastic! We were so glad to have him as our guide and even other trekkers we met were a little jealous how cool he was, which made us feel like we had the best guide out there! Thank you for everything you did to make our trek possible and for customizing it to drive one way to Pokhara. Regarding that, the drive was awesome! Also, we appreciate that you do sustainable tourism/ethical travel. After seeing issues of third world countries firsthand (and having personally studied effects of tourism in my postgraduate program), we were happy that we chose a company that is conscientious. So, thank you for everything. " - Kate Scott, USA

"We had a great trip!  Thank you so much for organizing!!  Suman, our guide, was fantastic!  In addition to being a guide, he was a teacher, a psychologist, a chef and much much more.  He even taught us all to make momo's.  The porters were lovely and enjoyed a nightly game of cards with our kids.  The Middlepath hotel was fantastic!  Their service was over and above, including delivering my daughter's forgotten iPad to us at the airport".
