We recently used Himalayan Windows to travel to Nepal for a week. We are a family of four and took one of their cultural tours that took us to Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Nagarkot. Anup was always very helpful all the time. The communication with him was very good when we were planning for the trip; he helped us accommodate our requests and was very flexible. Once in Nepal, he was on top of everything. He received us at the airport with our tour guide and driver and then he stopped at the hotel a couple of times to make sure everything was in order. Anis, our tour guide, was amazing! He is very knowledgeable, and we learned so much from him during the week. He was also very attentive and helped with every need we had. Our driver, Ganesh, was very good too. He has very careful, and we always felt very safe with him. We highly recommend this company to help you plan your trip to Nepal.
