Guides were pleasant, knowledgeable & fantastic. The car trip from Kathmandu to Pokhara was amazing. Sun rise from Sarangkot was unbelievable, cave and temple was interesting. Visiting to Durbar Squares and historical temple was informative and gave insight into Nepal history. The visit to the rain god was wow and helped to explain the people’s livings and dependency on nature. The women enjoyed shopping for Nepalese items. Thanks so much Tej Nepal alternative director, Sarita female tour guide in Kathmandu and Dillip for taking us to Pokhara and Sarangkot. See you next time soon !

Nepal is an overall full of adventures tour, very well supported by tej and his team. Special thanks to both of our guides Hari and Sarita, both were well informed about their areas. Especially Hari was sweet heart! He made us laugh and enjoy throughout the trip. The cultural & religious stories shared by Sarita will make us remember Nepal throughout our life. Tej was also a great support in making this trip/tour worthy after arrival we made changes to our plan around 3 times but never heard the word “ not possible” from Tej.
Inshallah will come back to Nepal next time for ABC or EBC !!!
Good luck to Tej and Team, well recommended!
