Traveler Reviews

We met Tej through a friend. He was very welcoming to us and took care of us excellently for the 10 days we spent in Nepal. He arranged everything for us, from taxis around Kathmandu to visit the attractions, a water rafting experience and also a 4 day trek. I couldn't recommend Tej and his company enough. They are wonderful. Our trek was the highlight of our trip. The views and surroundings were stunning. Our guide for the trek was called Thal and he made it even better by being friendly and intelligent with very good English. I have nothing bad to say about Tej or his company. 10/10
