We had a 8 day tour of Nepal for 8 people including Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan and Nagorkot. Anup, the founder of HimalayanWindows was awesome. Prior to the trip, he was always very responsive to all my questions and changes. All the arrangements were perfect. During the trip, we had a flight problem that was weather related and Anup was very flexible to find an alternative solution for us. I have travelled a lot all over the world, but Anup was the best I have encountered. Great customer service, plus just an awesome guy. He also planned a separate trip that was just me for Bhutan which also went extremely well. I would highly recommend using Himalayan Windows for any tours you are planning for Nepal, Bhutan or Tibet.

I just returned from a tour, impeccably organized by Anup and his company, of Kathmandu, Nepal and Paro/Thimphu, Bhutan. From Anup’s first timely response to my initial inquiry email to the day I departed to come home, he provided exceptional, personal customer service unlike any I have ever received before. As a solo woman traveler, I felt cared for, safe and well taken care of. Anup himself greeted me when I arrived in Kathmandu and, to my surprise, also took time out of his busy day to personally see me off on my last. I also received numerous texts and emails from him throughout my tour, as he checked up on me to be sure I was enjoying myself and that everything was going as planned. He genuinely cared about “little things” to a busy tour organizer, but that were of great importance to me, such as booking me a seat on my requested side of the plane from Kathmandu to Paro to ensure I had the chance to get that perfect picture of Mount Everest from the window (‘got it!). The tour guides and drivers that he booked for me were courteous and caring and I couldn’t have asked for better. The hotels were perfectly fine. I am happy to answer any questions that future travellers to beautiful Bhutan and fascinating Nepal may have. I very highly recommend Anup and his company, Himalayan Windows, for any tours to this part of the world.

I was taking part in a volunteering / touring break in Nepal for 2 weeks and I wanted to visit Bhutan before i headed back to the UK as I have heard wonderful things about the country. I contacted Himalayan Tours for an itinerary and price and they got back to me within hours with an itinerary and price which included visa, flights, hotel, guide and the itinerary I was after. Anup and his team answered all my queries immediately through email and i decided to book the 3 day tour. I met Anup at the hotel I was staying in Kathmandu at the beginning of my time in Nepal and then later when he gave me the visa and paperwork . I had only paid him for my flights back to the UK and 30% of the trip so i thought it was very trusting of him to organise everything without me having to pay the whole amount upfront and only once I received the paperwork did I pay the rest of the money owed. Anup contacted me to ensure I had arrived safely in Bhutan and that everything was ok. I would also like to add that because i was transiting planes in India (Delhi)and that i was using 2 different airlines ( Druk & Virgin Atlantic) i was unsure if my luggage would go straight to the UK. i did not have a visa for India and was worried but Anup said it would be fine as long as i told the check in at Bhutan. Everything was fine and i did not need a transit visa (phew) and my luggage arrived safely.. Anup and his team always responded to any queries or concerns I had immediately. ( i did have a few as a 51 year old female solo traveller and I cant thank him enough for organising my once in a life time trip to a beautifully country. Himalayan windows gave me 5 star A++ service and would not hesitate in using them again.

We had the opportunity to go to Nepal with Himalayan Windows and had a wonderful experience. Anup coordinated our trip Bhutan as well. Everything was set up and ran smoothly, from transfers to daily tours. All we had to do was show up and everything else was taken care of for us. Anup was very responsive to all of my emails. The guides were wonderful and very informative, as well as patient and accommodating. Thank you!

Our 13-day tour around Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan would not be so fulfilling without the organization to the very small detail by Himalayan Windows Tours. The proceedings with the visas to Tibet and Bhutan, the daily sightseeings and moving around the places were all well planned in advance. As well, our ad hoc requests for tours were met with immediate action by Anup. We highly recommend the service of the agency if you want to make a trip to those countries but do not have much time to be off. Such reliability, flexibility and high standards are rare and much appreciated taking into account the variety of options the travel industry offers,
