Amazing Vacation

It was a pleasure to work with Mr. Rajan for our India and Nepal trip in December 2010. He was very patient and able to accommodate my requests in order to tailor a special trip for us. We went back and forth on email several times until I was happy with the itinerary. We had a wonderful experience, and everything went as planned. Some of the hotels were better than others, but in some of the places we visited, there very few lodging options, so you have to be a little flexible and understand that some of the hotel standards will be different from back home. I reviewed the hotels in which we stayed, so you can check my other reviews for more information. For the most part, our guides and drivers were excellent who went above and beyond to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Overall, I highly recommend Mr. Rajan and Earthbound Expeditions. We will never forget our trip to India and Nepal, and we hope we will be able to return in the future.

Couldn't Ask For More

Actually, as we are in our 60's, we did not plan any extended hikes in Nepal, but Earthbound Expeditions kept us happily intrigued in Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Varanasi, Lumbini, Kathmandu and Pokhara, a lovely lakeside resort. While Rajan found us excellent--over the top accommodations--we walked through parts of the cities with knowledgeable guides and drove through the countryside and thus had the opportunity to connect with a variety of people. As this was our first time in Asia, we truly appreciated drivers who took great care of us. Rajan frequently phoned to make sure that we were safe and happy--which we always were. We also appreciated Rajan's philosophy--doing all that one person can do to establish an appreciation for a stunningly beautiful country and providing employment to deserving professionals and porters. We wish him well.

Travelling in India and Nepal

My contact with EE was Badri in the UK. He dealt with my initial inquiry, the planning of my itinerary in both India and Nepal to suit my requirements, and was helpful throughout. I can only say the service I received was excellent and the whole trip of nearly a month was faultless. From the moment I was met at Delhi airport until my flight home from Kathmandu, the co-ordination was exceptional, which for me as a solo traveler was very reassuring. The hotels in Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, and Varanasi were of good standard, and I was provided with very good guides and drivers throughout my stay. In Nepal, I began the Annapurna Cicuit Trek, but due to bad weather this had to be changed after 3 days. Arrangements were made smoothly for us to leave the Annapurna and travel to Pokhara where instead I then began (and completed) the Gorephani-Gandruk Trek. My Guide Arjun was a lovely young man, helpful and looked after me, even taking my day sack as well as my rucksack on particularly tough climbs. At the end of my trip, I met Rajan from the Nepal office before I left Kathmandu when we went for dinner and cultural evening. He took a real interest in us all and wanted feedback on our respective travels with the company. I can only highly recommend Earthbound Expeditions who provided a 5* service from start to finish.
