    Mr Buddhi was our tour guide for this trip. He was amazing. Communication was easy. He was very professional and made sure that we were comfortable during the entire tour. We were a family of 3 with a 10 year old. Our captain made sure that we were ok upon landing at kala patthar. We spent about 15-20minutes before heading to the Everest view hotel for breakfast. The views were spectacular and it was worth every single penny we paid for this tour. We even made a pitstop at Lukla airport which was in itself an amazing experience. We never felt rushed as we took our time walking around in some of our pitstops especially after breakfast at the Everest view hotel. Take this tour with Mr Buddi. He will take care of you. You won’t regret it. 5 stars for a comfortable flight, and professional service!

    Very good tour. The ladies on the plane were very informative. The guy who picked us up was pleasant. The views were spectacular. Didn’t get any champagne at the end but every one got a window seat. Definitely worth doing

    The trip was wonderful and our guide was even better! Both Neeraj, our guide, and Ravi, our driver, made sure we had a great time. Communication was excellent before and during the trip. Would recommend to anyone considering a tour of Kathmandu!

    Ray was an excellent tour guide, spending the day with us for the hike as well as providing a lot of information about Nepal and its history. Hope to join again and complete Everest base camp in the future!

    In April we spent a fantastic 2 weeks in Nepal on the Ace The Himalayas 14 day Everest Base Camp Trek. Having booked the trip over 2 years ago, which was disrupted by covid. Ace have been fantastic with the booking and communication and helping to move the dates due to covid 19 - Sujan in the Ace office was always on hand to answer any questions we had. Sujan organised all the paperwork for trekking and made sure that we had no issues whatsoever at the airport.

    When we arrived in Kathmandu we met with our guide Dipesh, who was professional, friendly and lots of fun throughout the trip. He was great at tailoring the trip whenever we wanted to make a change. He listened to our needs and adjusted the plans with ease and without stress.

    We had 2 porters on our trip, Don and Dilip, both which worked really hard carrying all our bags up and down the mountain. Dilip in particular was outstanding and couldn’t do enough to help us, he went above and beyond his role as a role as a porter. I would highly recommend requesting Dilip for your trip to the Himalayas. He would make a fantastic guide in the coming years.

    The accommodation was reasonable in the mountains (as good as there was up there). Don’t expect luxury as you go to the top - the toilets and showers are poor over 4500m (but this has to be expected).

    Overall, it was an absolutely fantastic trip and highly recommend going with Ace.

    I had an amazing experience on this trek. Thanks to weather for being nice :) and a big thank also goes to my guide on this trek Mr. Sagar.
    It’s a long trek for so many days, walking everyday can get tiring but the scenery is worth it and takes away some of the tiredness as well as the charm of reaching to Everest Basecamp is something that kept me moving.
    It was my first time doing trekking and he made sure to help me in every way possible. We managed to complete trek one day earlier than our schedule as that helped me to have a buffer day before my flight out of country. My guide Mr. Sagar was very supportive during the trek. He chose decent lodges on the way, let me choose food I liked and always listened to if I had anything to say. I heard stories from a few trekkers on the way who had issues with their guides but I didn’t have any issue at all and was very happy with the services provided.
    They also provided me down jacket, sleeping bag, walking sticks and my guide Mr. Sagar gave me his hat to avoid sun and he also carried some of my stuff when I got very tired.
    I wish Eco Holidays all the best and they will be my first choice if I have to book another tour in Nepal.

    A nice trip outside of the city to see the views, villages and farming terraces! Shishir Thapa was a great guide and awesome photographer! He shared a lot of information and he was good company during the drive and tour. I knew it was a bit foggy so I didn't expect to see the sunrise but I wanted to visit Nagarkot and Changu Narayan. I enjoyed the trip and was not disappointed as we made our way through beautiful scenery and caught a glimpse of the lives of villagers and the wood carvings of the local artisans. It's an early morning start, so you still have most of the day when you return to Kathmandu. This was my second excursion with Himalayan Planet Adventures Day Tours and it was great! I highly recommend them! I received good communication and all my questions were answered quickly as I made the booking. If you have a limited amount of time in Kathmandu you should go with them on the Kathmandu World Heritage Full Day Culture Tour and Nagarkot sunrise to see the Kathmandu valley and UNESCO sites.

    Shanti was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and diligently explained everything to us at each site. She made sure that we got to see the Royal Kumari, which was a highlight. Shanti was very thoughtful, making sure we were truly comfortable whether loo stops, lunch, length of explanation etc, and importantly, she kept us safe crossing the treacherous roads of Kathmandu! We also felt comfortable in the hands of our driver. Recommend this trip if you are visiting!

    I throughly enjoy the tour and Pankaj Thapa was a great guide! He was very knowledge, informative and answered my questions. The pace of the tour was good and I was able to see everything and take photos without being rushed. The tour was easy to book and the confirmation and communication was quick. I was picked-up from hotel and transported with a reliable car and driver. After the tour, Pankaj suggested a great place (Gaia Restaurant) in Thamel for lunch. It was so good, I returned for another meal. I was so happy with my experience that I reserved another tour with Himalayan Planet Adventures Day Tours later in the week. Their level of service and follow-up is amazing! When I return to Nepal in the future, I plan to book with them again!

    We had a ride by chopper to EBC which was magical. The pilot was also very experienced and pointed us the different valleys, villages and mointains. Definately something to do once in a life time.

    I just returned from my fantastic trip to Everest base camp by helicopter. It was a wonderful experience. I booked a group joining helicopter tour as private trip was out of my budget. I enjoyed the company with other passenger of the flight. We chat a lot while waiting for the flight and had a lovely breakfast together at Hotel Everest view. The booking process was very easy and the company contacts me just right after I made the booking. They provide the very helpful tips before going on the flight. While we flew to Lukla, the weather on the way was not good and worried, we may not see the mountains, but when we go higher locations, the weather become more clear and clear. The landing in Kalapattar was amazing experience. We saw the many mountains including Mount Everest just in front of us which were unbelievable experience. If you are visiting Nepal and want to see the Himalayas, nothing can be better then Everest base camp helicopter tour. Highly highly recommended.

    This was a great expedition outside of Kathmandu, I really loved my time with my guide Jamuna who really made the trip standout that much more with her detailed explanations, she even took me to the pottery section of the Durbar Square so I could do a short pottery session! I especially enjoyed the lunch at the homestay in Panauti, where I got to enjoy a traditional Newari dish. I highly recommend this tour, Bhaktapur is a lovely city.

    Dipesh was my guide again to these beautiful sites. Similar to Kathmandu but architecture exquisitely detailed. Break Free Adventures was amazing with allowing Dipesh to be my guide again.
