During our stay in Nepal, Breakfree Adventures proved reliable, hospitable, informative and creative - all at a good price. Bharat Sapkota and his people were where they said they would be every time.

Our Kathmandu guide, Bijay Ramal, patiently fielded our questions and made sure we saw the four big sites: Durbar Square, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath and Pastupinath.

But it was in doing what it could to salvage our trek that Breakfree proved its worth.

We had a five day window to trek in the Everest area, but an unprecedented return of the monsoon shut down flights to the starting point, Lukla, for the entire time. After our flight was grounded the first morning, Bharat and trekking guide Ramesh Duwadi, anticipating events, got our tickets switched to Pokhara for that afternoon, so we could trek in the Annapurna area.

Unfortunately, the weather was bad there, too, so we trekked five days in clouds and rain. But Ramesh was invaluable. He grew up in a small village, so he could explain everything we saw, from architecture to farming practices to hydroelectric projects. He sometimes went ahead to get us a room at a tea house before the crowds showed up. His English was excellent and he made friends with everybody we met along the way.

Breakfree even threw in two extra nights at a nice hotel in Pokhara and Ramesh finally managed to get us a view of the Himalayas from Sarangkot the morning before our flight back to Kathmandu. Then, even though we didn't leave Nepal until five days later, Bharat picked us up from our hotel at 6 am and drove us to the airport.

Bharat of Breakfree Tours was an excellent resource in Nepal. He arranged tours for us and then changed them in a very short period of time. He accomodated all of our requests and gave us great suggestions. I highly recommend this company. Great value.

Book your adventures in Nepal with this agency and I promise you that you will have almost nothing more to worry about during your stay there.

Bharat, who I exchanged emails with to arrange my group's trip to Chitwan for the elephant safari, was very patient with my inquiries and guided me through my last-minute payment for said activity. When my friends and I were in Chitwan, we cooked up this crazy plan to spend our next day in Pokhara instead of heading back to Kathmandu, where we were supposed to be. We asked our driver, Nabaraj (who is a very great guy I highly recommend, by the way), to ask Bharat if we could just change our itineraries on the fly like that. He made it work. He just gave us a price quote for the added trip the car was going to take and agreed to wait for us to get back to Kathmandu for the payment. He even agreed to wait for us in the hotel way past business hours because the traffic jam we got caught up in delayed our arrival in Kathmandu to 9 PM.

I have nothing but good memories of my short Nepal trip logistics-wise and it's all thanks to Bharat and Breakfree Adventures.

As a group of 7 friends who enjoy traveling together, we could not have asked for a better experience during our 08 August 2013 day trip to Kathmandu than the one Breakfree Adventures arranged. BHARAT from Breakfree Adventures was amazing in expressions of promptly answering questions and offering travel trips. BHARAT provided the necessary information for our group to make informed decisions, concerning all aspects of the tours including hotel selections, modes of transportation and must see places.

We all agreed that the trip could not have been better. We visited Kathmandu, Chitwan, Pokhara, Sarangkot and Dhampus. From the moment we arrived at the Kathmandu airport, we were well escorted. There was not one issue with transportation, the accommodations, tours, and guides. We originally were traveling from Pokhara to Kathmandu by the Tourist bus, but because of a strike, we needed to travel by air instead. This change was handled without a trouble. Tour guides were always prompt and efficient in getting us to the required locations. The choice of hotels offered by Breakfree Adventures allows us to choose a variety of accommodations. In each instance, the hotel personnel were helpful, efficient, and friendly. Rooms were always ready upon our arrival, clean, and above our expectations.

Also, during this 7 days tours, there were several misplaced items amongst members of our group - our bag, passports, and even a camera were mistakenly left in hotel rooms. In each case, the items were retrieved by a Breakfree Adventures representative and either brought to us or sent to our next destination.

The tour guides were superb, especially Ramesh. We could count on the tour guides to provide us with the local history, culture as well as shopping and restaurant tips, and visits to the local market.

We loved every aspect our Nepal tour and appreciate all that everyone at Breakfree Adventures Nepal did to make our journey an excellent. Maybe even the best and we are experienced travelers. We already planning a trip to Ghorepani - Poon Hill and with Breakfree Adventures will be the only travel consultant we contact for assistance!

Thank you so much!
Kelly and Friends!!

My wife, son, and I had the most exciting and wondrous trip to Bhutan, all arranged by Bharat of Breakfree Adventures. From the very first email, Bharat was always quick to respond with answers to questions regarding the itinerary, bookings, hotel arrangements, visa and flight information, etc. We were very happy to learn that Bharat would join us on our tour. Our hotels, chosen from the government list which included the Metta Spa and Resort, Meri Puensam, and Peaceful Resort, were charming with clean, large rooms, hot showers, and wonderful food for breakfast and dinner. Our lunches at local restaurants were also excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety, freshness, and delicious preparation of every meal. Our tour guide, Bull, was extremely knowledgeable regarding the history and customs of past and present Bhutan. Our driver, Tenzin, was extremely proficient at maneuvering through the winding, mountainous roads, always making us feel comfortable and safe. We shared meals with Bharat, Bull, and Tenzin which only added more enjoyment to our trip, since we came to know more about the personal lives of the Bhutanese whose incredible country everyone should come to know. We do recommend to everyone that the hike to Tiger's Nest be taken a few days after arriving so the body adjusts to the altitude change. Our 22 year old son made it up to the Nest and back in three hours total time with Bull on the second day of our visit. But then again, he is 22 and his parents are NOT...Overall, Breakfree Adventures is a sure winner when considering a trip to the most glorious of countries, Bhutan. Contact Bharat and discover true, personal service at its best.
