“Everest Base Camp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

my visit to Everest Base Camp was with Gecko's Adventures. This was a very well organised trip.
Profesional guides we were luck with the weather. However it was sad when we arrived because the 16 sherpas were killed the day before. The views were outstanding and the whole experience will never be forgotten. Do be fit to get the best out of this trip.I can highly recommend it.
One of the highlights of my life.

“Great effort, but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

We recently returned from doing a trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp. We traveled with Tusker Trail. Their organization is second to none. They take their own kitchen staff and prepare all your meals. This is extremely important as hygiene is questionable everywhere in Nepal. Considering the stress of the environment, the altitude and constantly breathing yak compost, you need all the advantages you can get. The hiking is strenuous, but so are dealing with the accommodations. Expect no heat in your room and limited or questionable bathrooms. Again- sanitation is always suspect. Nevertheless, Nepal is extremely beautiful and the mountains magnificent. The people are beautiful and absolutely wonderful. Reaching Base Camp is tough, but doable for most people in good shape as long as you don't have altitude problems (take diamox, drink lots of water,and go slowly!). An incredible trek!

“Road To Tibet Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We engaged Road To Tibet, a Lhasa based tour company for a 9 day trip to Lhasa and on to Everest Base Camp visiting spectacular sights and monasteries along the way in April 2014. The level of service was excellent. From the start Woeser Phel who runs the tour company was fantastic to deal with. He responded to e-mails or text messages in minutes. Organised flights from Chengdu to Lhasa, Tibet permits, Everest permits, accommodation for our entire stay and train tickets from Lhasa to Shanghai at short notice. They also provided an excellent English speaking guide and a well maintained Landcruiser and good safe driver for our whole stay in Tibet.

We were certainly glad that we engaged a Tibetan tour company instead of a tour company based in Beijing or overseas. Appears that their guides and drivers are decently paid, their attitude was very professional. The guide was very knowledgeable and was constantly monitoring us for AMS and our general welfare. The driver a very safe and conservative man. I cannot understate the value of a good safe driver or the importance of a well maintained vehicle such as a comfortable, rugged Landcruiser especially given those mountain roads.

Tibet with it's unique culture, religion, people and landscape is a once in a lifetime experience. Choose carefully when engaging your tour. Road To Tibet were mostly responsible for giving us that awesome experience.
