Thanks to Roka and his team, we had an AMAZING Nepal experience! Where do I begin to sing praises about this tour group? We visited Nepal for 13 days and wanted only to tour for 9. I contacted Friendship Nepal Tours and Roka worked diligently with me to meet my request. We had excellent accommodation and those that he did suggest, I checked on TripAdvisor and from that, requested that a couple of the hotels be changed, which he did. My husband was sick the second day of the tour (we had been so very, very careful!!) but Roka took it in stride and changed our plans around so hubby could rest. Our guide, Ramesh, for Kathmandu was extremely knowledgable of the legends, history and religious beliefs. Our driver was Mohan and was excellent. Many of the roads are in deplorable condition and driving is unlike anything I have ever experienced in all of my traveling days but I felt completely safe with Mohan at the wheel. Unfortunately, the last day of our trip, I fell and cut my head real badly. Ramesh and Mohan were so very helpful and attentive. We tried to send them home from the hospital as it was getting late but they insisted on staying. They were both a huge help and comfort....I was fine..needed two stitches and fortunately no concussion or broken bones! From Kathmandu, Mohan drove us to Chitwan Jungle area.

All arrangements for the hotel, meals and guide were arranged by Friendship Nepal Tours and our time there went smoothly. From Chitwan, Mohan drove us to Pokhara where an overnight hike to the Australian Camp had been arranged, as well as a tour of Pokhara. Our guide was Rams and again, he was top-notch. Rams helped arrange a helicopter tour to Annapurna Base camp, that proved to be the highlight of our trip. If you are looking for an A-1 tour group to help you explore Nepal, look no further...this is the one for you!

Just returned from a 11 day private tour of Nepal, visiting Kathmandu, Nagarkot, Chitwan, Lumbini and Pokhara. The tour was very well organised, good communication and Roka was patiently waiting when we arrived at the airport despite us taking some 3 hours to get our visa. I honestly cant think of much, if anything I would change. Perhaps being picky the hotel in Lumbini was not great, but to be honest I dont think there was much out there that was any better and certainly wasnt the fault of Friendship tours. Would not hesitate to book again.

We really had a great time in Nepal having selected the correct travel agent and also the people of Nepal who are so friendly and gentle and nice. And not forgetting the fanstastic scenery and also the mountains that was really awesome which I am sure we will not be able to see from our country.

We look forward to having another trip to Nepal again in the near future.

Once again, thanks for the great arrangement during our trip and till then, do keep in touch and take care.

Cheers

I have always dreamed about travelling to Nepal. Being a single traveller I appreciated the help and support that the drivers and tour guides gave me in my journey to make this dream a reality. After living in Turkey for four years, and stuggling to learn Turkish, it was a relief to find out that both the driver and tour guide spoke excellant english. I grew to admire the driver's skill on mountain roads full of heavy truck traffic, and the amazing general knowledge of the tour guides.Some of the special memories that will always stay with me include hearing the sound of the buddhist mantra being played whilest viewing the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal, enjoying the peacefulness in the Lumbini Gardens and walking through villages early in the morning.
 
The view of Mt Everest eluded me for most of my trip but I was fortunate enough to catch a glimse of the famous mountain as the plane flew out of Katmandu. Now that I am back in Istanbul teaching young children, I share my special memories of Nepal with others through listening to the beautiful Nepalise music and looking at a picture book of Nepal. It was a great holiday and one not to be missed.
 
Kind regards,

Experience Nepal

Passing the immigration at Tribhuvan, the officer said to me with a smile, you must really like Nepal, 2nd time in 8 months!

What's not to like about Nepal? Friendly, nice, helpful people, that will go out their way to assist you.

A beautiful country with great diversity. My 1st stay in Nepal was for a short 3 days in Kathmandu, in November 2008 I came back for an all Nepal tour of 15 days.

I visited Kathmandu, Nagarkot, Chitwan nationalpark, Lumbini, Pokhara, 5 days of trekking starting in Nayapul, Birethanti, Ghorepani, Poon Hill, Tadapani, Gandruk and back to nayapul again. Returned to Pokhara and Kathmandu. Thank you to all my guides and drivers and not least Friendship Nepal for looking after me in the best possible way - a speciel thanks to my trekking guide Robin Subedi and porter Ram Rai for their infinite patience when I found it exhausting. It was worth it.

Frienship Nepal did an excellent job, well planned and organized. I will be using your expertise again.
