Don't take our word for it - read through our customer reviews. All of these have been published without any editing.

Exploring the old towns of Bhaktpur & Kathmandu. The fact that we didn't just do the tourist sites but visited the backstreets, rail stations & small villages added that extra insight into life in India & Nepal.

Once we arrived in Nepal the quality of the trip improved dramatically.

Once we arrived in Nepal the quality of the trip improved dramatically.

[Least enjoyed] Spending 3 days in Orccha with only 1 included activity to see the fort/palace the rest of the time was free time.  This was a one strip town with nothing to do.  It was a waste of days on my holiday.  We asked the guide what we could do with our free time we were told nothing. We could have fit in Jaipur or an extra day in dehli or katmandu anything apart from 3 days in Orccha with nothing to do.

 

He excelled at the organisation and getting us from A to B.  As he was Intrepid I think this was the main responsibility of getting us to our locations through a variety of different ways to cost.
He was friendly, social, helpful and did take care of us.

But it is the first time I encountered a guide who gave out briefing sheets on local areas rather than talked and discussed it.  It was good supporting information but, it was the same as my guide book.  I don't think he was there to provide any information if we pushed him he talked but, it was never volunteered.  He didn't have the passion I normally associate with guides on sharing information on culture and people.

Vivek our Tour Leader really made the trip

Vivek our Tour Leader really made the trip via his professionalism and local knoweldge.He had to handle a couple of difficult sitations however at the same time ensured that the whole Group was considered.
The overall travel experience was the best yet and this is down to the leader, organisation, itinierary and group.

Vivek has many years experience and this shows via his professionalism and knoweldge. After a less succcessful trip several years ago He has restored my faith in The Adventure Company and I would definitley book again.

Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal, River Ganges trip, Kathmandu. It was all fantastic.

 

Bhupesh was a great leader overall, and his English was as good as mine. Suggestions for improvement: he was inclined to tease about arrangements for travel and accommodation, which made planning difficult, and generally you had to ask for information about surroundings that weren't on a tour rather than being offered any insight about the country.

The Tour Guide was excellent

The Tour Guide was excellent and went above and beyond to ensure the trip was both comfortable and memorable.

[Least enjoyed] Canoeing on the treck in Chitwan NP.  The canoes were very unstable and seating most uncomfortable for length of journey.  Some of the transportation used was a little cramped and uncomfortable (jeeps, mini bus)

You definatley need to incude more detailed information on the do's and dont's for the treck in the Chitwan National Park.  Ie no Red, Yellow or White clothing/bags allowed, ensure you wear long trousers and long sleeved tops.

It should also be stated for ladies that 3/4 length trousers or long skirts are acceptable but anything shorter and you will feel uncomfortable when in public. 

It was not the type of accommodation I am used to (I work in the Travel Industry) however it was pretty much what I was expecting.

Mahi was a credit to the company.
