From our first enquiry, Rajan at Earthbound Expeditions was nothing but helpful, responding to emails promptly and advising on an itinerary for us. From the minute we arrived in Nepal we were well taken care of – we were picked up then settled into the Thamel EcoResort, where all the staff were helpful and friendly and they put on a great breakfast buffet!

We started off on the Poonhill Trek which was beautiful and our guide Gopal was brilliant, making sure we had the rooms with the best views, advising on the best eating and drinking options – all around attentive from start to finish. He was also incredibly caring always checking we were okay and even helping us down some of the steep and icy paths! As two women travelling alone, he made us feel very much at ease and we would not hesitate in recommending him to other women travellers.

For the second part of our trip we had intended to go to the Everest region but unfortunately on the morning we were due to fly to Lukla we had to change our plans as my mum was experiencing some symptoms of altitude sickness from our first trek. Even though it was such short notice Rajan was able to change our flights to the following day to allow another rest day in Kathmandu and the chance to go to the doctors. In the end she was advised not to return to altitude, so Rajan cancelled the flight and rebooked us onto a Mountain Flight so we would still get the chance to see Everest. Rajan and Gopal then came up with a new trek for us to do in the Kathmandu Valley. Once again Gopal catered to our every need on this beautiful trek through traditional countryside with wonderful panoramic views of the mountains, and unlike the Annapurna trek we hardly encountered any other tourists which was great!

We were so impressed with Earthbound Expeditions and the way nothing was ever too much trouble, Rajan completely rearranged our itinerary at short notice and for no extra cost – he even accompanied us to dinner on our final night! I cannot speak more highly of Rajan and the excellent way he treats his customers - please do not hesitate to book a trip with Earthbound Expeditions!

My friend and I went on the Ghorepani/Poonhill trek and had an amazing time. Nepal is absolutely beautiful and the people are incredibly friendly. The trip was well organized, and our guide Namaraj was very helpful and attentive to our group's needs during the trek. One of the best experiences I've had traveling.

Our trip to Nepal was truly memorable and wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality and the tour arrangements that you had made for us. From the time we landed at Kathmandu you took care of everything. This probably differentiates you from other Tour operators who leave you to your own devices once the booking is made. When we started our tour, you kept in touch with us on an almost regular basis by phone and answered all of our queries. Nothing was too big or too small for you and you dealt with our every request promptly. For this we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I'd better get the review written before Christmas comes along. We engaged Earthbound to put together a custom Annapurna circuit trip for 3 50+ old blokes. They were excellent, first class !! Rajan is an amazing man, he remembers everyone is always on top of all the organisation. The guide and 2 porters we were allocated (Hari, Arjun and Madang) were also fantastic. If I have go back, Earthbound will be my first choice.
