14 Day Annapurna Trek with Rafting and Chitwan Safari. Wonderful country. Wonderful people!

14 Day Annapurna Trek with Rafting and Chitwan Safari. Wonderful country. Wonderful people!

Rating:  

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.

A general rule of thumb for tipping is to USD 40 to USD 70 per Traveler, depending on the length of the trek. Porters do appreciate a personal tip, although it is not uncommon for the Guide and his Porters to pool the tips they have collected before splitting it amongst themselves, with the Guide is getting a little more for overseeing the welfare and safety of both the Travelers and Porters as a whole. That said, this is just a guide and you may tip however much you think is appropriate for the services rendered which made your trip a memorable one.
