It was the first experience for my wife and me to trek to Annapurna Base Camp in October 2019. It was an amazing experience. The service level provided by the company and especially my guide Ram Lamichhane was far more than we ever expected. They really took care of us during our stay and trek. We were way more than satisfied with their services. They made the hard days easy with their infectious smiles and sense of humor and we felt so lucky to have them along on the trek. Overall, the trek was beautiful and had many great and beautiful moments. We are grateful to Luxury Holidays Nepal and their efforts.

This july was so special for us. Me and my 2 friends were in trekking in Nepal. Our plan was to reach the Annapurna base camp that was why we joined the luxury holidays and their group. We stayed at luxury hotels in Kathmandu city which Luxury Holidays Nepal provided us. Totally we were 7 in group for trekking, and one of them was also from Australia. We had lots of fun in that trekking.. Guest houses on the route were full due to crowd of tourist, but we did not need to have worry, Luxury Holidays had already reserved rooms for us.

It was my first Nepal visit but I felt like my home. Person peaking and dropping us airport, guide and porters and representative of LHN were very nice guy. It was very nice to talking with them. Their jokes were so nice. Porters were too funny. It was so nice to dance with them on Nepali folk songs.

I even did not imagine that my trip will be such an awesome.  The effort of LHN was more than our expectation, so thank you very much Luxury Holidays for such a wonderful trip.

We are planning for next trekking in Everest Base Camp. And we will definitely contact you for that. We will see you soon.

In July I had a trek. I trekked to Annapurna base camp with 6 other crew members. In our team 3 person were from New Zeeland and along with me 3Australian. I thought that I am single from Australia but it was very nice to trek with friends from same country.  In Kathmandu we were in Dwarika’s Hotel and it was luxury hotel. 
There was tourist vehicle for driving and luxury car for sightseeing. Guide and porters were so nice. They helped me when I was tired of carrying of bag. The guide’s name was Ram who was very professional. He had very much information to give us. I took so many photos with Ram and our porters and also our crew members. 
I think no one can provide such kind of trip other than Luxury Holidays. Thank you LHN for such a wonderful trip. I miss you all.

Last month our family was in Nepal. This was our first family tour in Nepal but for me it was second. I had already completed Annapurna base camp trek 3 years ago. Both times it was luxury holidays Nepal. At first trip I did not give any review but this time I can’t sit without any review.

Actually my whole family didn’t trek. Only I had plan for trekking that’s why I called and joined the group of Luxury Holidays Nepal. It was my second time with Luxury Holidays so it was so easy for me to book the trip. They made available to trek within our family tour. 

I told them for same guide as of last time but he was already in another trip. But this time also our group guide was so nice. He guided very well and gave his secrets to survive in Himalayas. His name is Pasang Sherpa. I don’t remember the names of porters but they were very strong and kind and also funny too. We danced and sang on every night. They also said jokes in Nepali and our guide translated it in English and that was very funny.

My family tour was more memorable and unimaginable with that trek. Thank you Luxury Holidays for the incredible arrangements. Thank you very much. There is no any question to not giving 5 star.
