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 !
Mr Tahir Maqbool
From Nature to culture, Nepal is heaven on earth. We liked it, loved it all because of our tour pleasure Tej , our guide Hari and Sarita. Hari and Sarita made us safe and enjoy. They saw Nepali life and for sure we will definitely come back some day in our life to view in the mountain area to look at the real ethnic life of NEPAL !
At the end we would like to wish all the best to Tej and his team to keep up the great work they are doing.
Best wishes & regards,

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!

From the moment we arrived at Kathmandu, we felt well looked after when we saw Dhan waiting for us. The trekking was definitely wonderful with Dhan. The highlight with him knowing his way around and remaining flexible to our needs. The rafting, Everest Mountain flight and female tour guide Sarita showing us around the city were also excellent.
In the end, everything was great!
We would definitely use Dhan and Nepal alternative treks again when we come back trekking next year!!
For the whole package is so good. I am very satisfied with the service, guide and porter while trekking. Good guide for sightseeing is also Ok. I will probably come back and use the company’s service again soon! Thanks for everything!
Mr. James and Ms. Mariya
