This is a great choice for time-limited people who want to see a lot of Nepal in a short time. Very easy to do extra or change things (we opted out of riding on elephants in Chitwan due to environmental concerns, and very easily swapped onto a jeep safari and canoe ride instead), canyoning is included but you can add a bungee jump (it's very cheap compared to aussie prices!) and although the itinerary takes you to Poon Hill for sunrise, you can also climb up the night before for sunset if you're feeling really energetic and want to see the view twice!
Sujan our guide was friendly and patient, highly recommend.
This is an easy trek for experienced hikers but there is not much flat terrain - it is up and down most of the 6 day trek, but totally doable for people of average fitness.
We went just before the start of 'peak season' so most of our hotels were quiet, and they were great. Ram (the trek coordinator i think?) was careful to remind us that the hotels on the trek were not the same standard as in the cities, but we had no problem with any of them. Clean and private, and most of them had private bathrooms too!
Highly recommend buying toilet paper or tissues before the trek and carry it everywhere! Always keep some tissues in your pocket just in case - no bathrooms will supply them.
One other thing I will mention is that tipping is accepted and expected. As Australians we don't have much experience with this, but be aware before you go somewhere so you can keep some money on you for guides and porters.
Food was delicious everywhere but you will find it difficult to get an authentic Nepalese meal! Most dishes will come out without any chilli (even the curries!) so ask for spice if you want it (especially on your trek!) Dahl Bhat is available everywhere and you should definitely try it a few times. It will usually be the provided meal if your itinerary says "meal included".
