      Avoid like the plague
      Sadly can’t give no stars. Trek dates 8-27th March 2024. Ganesh ambushed us at the entrance to the NTB in Kathmandu. Talked incessantly to bombard us with all these different treks we could do. We gave only one restriction and that was that we couldn’t go above the snow line as we didn’t have the appropriate gear. He and Terence,our guide, came up with a 20 day itinerary and assured us we wouldn’t be going above the snow line. Why would he think a 20 day itinerary was appropriate for a 57&58 year old couple that had just arrived in Kathmandu? The answer to that is he wanted all the money up front and stressed on numerous occasions that there would be no refund even if we only completed one day of the 20. This apparently is not normal or reasonable practice among trekking agencies. Only once we were on the trek did we discover the trek route was taking us over two passes that were above the snow line and weren’t even open for just over another two weeks. We had been set up to fail. Route had to be changed to one that didn’t need a guide. Terence passed a comment during the trek that he was missing out on another trek because he was with us and so clearly didn’t expect us to keep going for the 20 days, which is probably what Ganesh had led him to believe. The fee we paid included the guides accommodation and food cost, which they were responsible for. The reality quite different. You are made to stay at lodges where the guide gets free food and lodgings but everything costs you, the client more. Indirectly you are paying twice. On the odd occasion I insisted on choosing the lodge the deal we got was much cheaper and we had an unhappy guide who ate little. To ram home the point we trekked on our own after for 25 days and on only three of those nights did we pay for accommodation and it was minimal amounts. Electricity, showers and wi-fi were normally included as well. We estimate it cost us NPR20000 more over the 20 days because of the way they operate. Please avoid this trekking company like the plague and in general all trekking companies. As of March-May 2024 no rules are being enforced. Routes are normally easy to follow, if not ask. Having trekked with a guide and without, trust me the latter is a much more pleasurable experience and people talk to you more when you don’t have a guide.

      Great experience
      We hiked the Annapurna circuit trek from Dhorapani to Kagbeni. Janak, our guide helped a lot not just with finding and reserving accomodation daily, but scouting out and showing us the best sights during the trek. 10/10 would hire him for our next trek in Nepal.

      Annapurna Circuit Trek with Janak
      We did the Annapurna Circuit with our porter-guide, Janak, who was so friendly, informative and helpful. I needed to consult with a dentist during the trek unfortunately and Janak helped me to find one in the middle of festive period. I would recommend him without any hesitation! :)

      Janak was great
      Janak was a great guide/porter for our small group of friends, he really gave his best to make our Annapurna Circuit trek a nice experience. If you're looking to do a trek in Nepal in small groups in the mountains, go for Janak!

      Not free to make own decisions
      When we booked the trip we were told, we are able to decide on the restaurant and hotel we want to go. At the end our guide just forced us into tea hotels that were overpriced and not nice. Also we did not have much privacy

      Annapurna-circuit during monsun!
      Even if we did the Annapurna-circuit during monsun-time, it was really amazing and exceeded my expectations. Especially with our guide, Arjun, who took best care of us, we had the best time!

      Great experience in Kathmandu Valley !
      Great experience in Katmandu Valley with Ganesh and his family. They were really caring and mindful even though we were 12 students. They provided great food, were great guides for our trek and were of the utmost caringness about us. Would recommend 10/10.

      Shivapuri national park 1-day hike
      Rinji is a very easygoing and friendly guide. It was a ad-hoc trek for me in the morning so we start late. Still Rinji managed to pick up so quick with a scooter. Although we start late, Rinji was so easygoing and create a good environment that I can enjoy the moment comfortable without time rush. Even the view on top was not so good clear due to weather condition, we still visited and climb lots of trees, took short nap in the jungle and enjoy birds sound and many great moments. It was so great to have such relaxing and accommodating experiences.

      Perfectly guided by jungle safari
      We took part of a Jungle-Safari in Chitwan. The Everest Holiday travel agency found a very nice Hotel for us with pool, good nepalese and european food, comfortable rooms. Our guide was really competent person and spoke a perfect english - and also a little bit german. I'm sure, we will never forget these interesting experiences! HIghly recommended!

    I had an amazing trek with this company. Due to corona outbrake I had to cancel my plans for my stay in Nepal. The company helped me to make a new plan for my time here, all adjusted to my preferences! I had an 14 dat trek trough different villages and landscapes. The guide had a lot of information about the mountains and the people living in these mountains. This trek was a great experience! I highly recommend The Everest Holiday to everybody who plans any trekking in Nepal.
