I had a day off in Kathmandu while here on business. I wanted to get out of the city so I took their one day hiking trip to Nagarkot. Was able to book something with just a day's notice. Had a great, friendly guide (Nirmal) with decades of experience guiding in Nepal and excellent English. The owner, Shishir, met me at my hotel upon return to hear about how the day went. Would highly recommend this very professional company.
