My wife and I went with Luxury Holidays Nepal in December 2017. We took their Nepal Magical Tour and found it a great trip. We enjoyed a wide variety of sites from temples, Chaityas through to animals in the wild. Our tour guides very friendly, helpful and informative. We had fair amount time on driving, but had a wonderful time. The roads were very damaged, the traffic was heavy, and most of roads are under construction. The accommodations were lovely. There was adequate time allocted for all sites to visit however, it would have been nice to have had a little spare time for some shopping on our own.
Overall, we would highly recommend this tour company.Published: Thursday, January 18, 2018
