We took part in the tour around India with Luxury Holidays. It is highly recommended! The trip took us all the places we would expect and it crossed my mind that if we have tried to do this by ourselves, it would have taken forever to figure out where we wanted to go and even longer to actually get there.
The Luxury Holidays tour made it easy for us and also made sure we got to see most aspects of life India, whether plowing through the crowds in Old Delhi, wandering through the local townships - cows and all - on the way to the Ganges, or the sights of the Taj and the massive Amber Fort complex ,etc etc
Our guide Ibrahim was excellent - understated but full of knowledge and prepared to go the extra mile to help us. The driver and driver's assistant Lovely and Happy (I kid you not!) were also extraordinarily helpful and really helped make the trip. Would I use Luxury Holidays Nepal again? Absolutely!
We had the trip of a lifetime walking from Lukla to Everest Base Camp and back and want to say a huge thank you to Himalayan Social Journey and our guides Deepak Shrestha and Krishna for making it as easy as possible and truly memorable. We didn't encounter a hitch from being picked up at the airport, cruised around the sights of Kathmandu, sheprded on the first plane in and out of Lukla and guided with great care all the way through the 12 day trek in the Himalayas. Deepak is an energetic, kind and caring guide and Ganesh shared great stories about life in Nepal. I recommend them to anyone wanting a guided trek through the Himalayas.
We returned last week from a 19 day tour of India and Nepal. Our experiences with Luxury Holidays Nepal were all extremely positive. Everything was incredibly well organized and the guides were first class and very adaptable. Special thanks to Tanveer who was with us for the India part of the itinerary. He was amazingly kind and helpful and always made sure everyone was looked after especially when plans were changed e, the train to Varanasi arrived five hours late and then took four hours longer than it should have, so instead of arriving for breakfast Tanveer had to organize lunch for us at a restaurant close to the hotel. He kept everyone’s spirits up with his wonderful sense of humor! Our guide in Nepal, Pankaj was also wonderful...... friendly, helpful and well organized. And very encouraging when we encountered difficult sections of the trek. The porters Kiran, Rajan and Suresh were also very pleasant and helpful. All in all it was a wonderful holiday and we learnt so much about both countries. Thanks you LHN team!
My friend and I did the 14 days Nepal trip with Luxury Holidays Nepal and we had such a beautiful and authentic experience. We were the only two people in our group so we got our lovely guide all to ourselves. Being very inexperienced trekkers, he helped us along when we needed it and always told us what was ahead so we knew what was coming. He was able to offer so much local knowledge and his English was fantastic - he even taught us some Nepalese! We encountered some bad weather near the end of our tour and the team at LHN were happy to accommodate our wishes to stay longer at Pokhara for no additional cost. Being two women traveling alone, I always felt safe with our guide and porter and their knowledge of the landscape and the guesthouses and towns. With their knowledge, we were able to craft a holiday that was unique and meaningful. Highly recommend Krishna as a guide and the whole team at LHN were great both before and during our tour.
The agency helped me organize my Bhutan trip with a very short notice. With a very professional attitude and readiness, they did everything to satisfy my requirements. As a result of their help, we spent 5 days in Bhutan - for me it was an effortless holiday, as a hotel, tour guide and even the meals were completely arranged. We were absolutely satisfied and will for sure use their services in the near future.
I highly recommend using Luxury Holidays Nepal as your choice of travel in Nepal. I promise you won't regret it ;)
