Trip to Nepal - Apr 16 - Apr 25, 2017

Traveler: Robin B. - Local specialist: Raj Gyawali

Raj and the team Social Tours couldn't have been more helpful. It was an expensive trip but we saved a lot of time that we would have otherwise spent finding out about places and organizing trips. The 4 guides who took care of us were very knowledgeable and specialized in their work.
Raj is very knowledgeable with a lot of contacts and is highly respected within the Nepalese tourist industry.
Anura is intelligent and sparkly, and a tremendous asset to Social Tours.
Social Tours helped make this our trip of a lifetime!!!

There was only one night where the accommodation was noisy, poky and uninviting, but all our other accommodation was exceptional

Robin, thanks a ton for taking the time to review the trip and also for coming to Nepal. We do take feedback quite seriously and use it to improve on our services. I am sorry that the accomodation at Bhaktapur was a bit cramped, but its a heritage house thats 700 years old and we like to support them because of their dedication to restoration of ancient traditional living styles. I agree that this would not fit easy with every traveller, and its unfortunate it was not a fit in this case. Glad... read more

Robin, thanks a ton for taking the time to review the trip and also for coming to Nepal. We do take feedback quite seriously and use it to improve on our services.

I agree that this would not fit easy with every traveller, and its unfortunate it was not a fit in this case. Glad you loved the heritage property in Patan, the hotel in Nagarkot and the one at the Shivapuri Hills.

It is also a joy to hear that the trip was a great one to remember over the years. Glad also the human assets we have are good and were a good match. This is what we like to hear obviously.

I agree it was a bit expensive, but we did everything possible to give you the best that was possible, and it tends to add up eventually.

Overall, very happy that you consider it a trip of a lifetime and hope we shall see you and Elle back in Nepal sometime!
