Fantastic - I travelled to Nepal on my own and I had an experience of a lifetime

I only decided to book my trip with Earthbound Expeditions two weeks before going, having found excellent recommendations about the company on trip advisor which mirrored my experience. I got an excellent professional and personal service from Rajan. As I was traveling on my own, Rajan suggested I join a couple who had already booked (after asking them if they were happy that I joined them). We were a small group which I thought was great Shree was an excellent guide who was very professional, friendly, helpful, very knowledgeable about Nepalese culture and the mountains. He was helped by his two very able 'assistants' Lama and Bibek Rai - whose welfare he was concerned for (as well as ours) - they were a great team. If you get the chance to request them you will be in for a fantastic holiday. I will definately be going back to Nepal and I would without hesitation use Earthbound Expeditions for any trips I might take.

FANTASTIC! LOOK NO FURTHER THAN EARTHBOUND EXPEDITIONS

Dear intrepid traveler! I can imagine your "dilemma": you want to have an awesome time in one of the most beautiful countries in the world ... but you need help and a great contact to 'make it happen'. After traveling around the world to 67 countries, I think I know a bit about what I say when I confidently advise the following: "JUST GO WITH RAJAN, PRESIDENT OF EARTHBOUND EXPEDITIONS!" You will not be disappointed in ANY way. E-mail communication from Rajan and his team is five-stars, his charges are VERY fair, and he makes the time to welcome you, personally. In summary, memories of Nepal were awesome ... and thigns went smoothly because I booked, well, with the best.

Amazing trip

I traveled to Nepal for 8 days and used Earthbound Expeditions for all my travel plans. Everything was taken care of for me, Rajan made sure I was well informed from my first inquiry until I arrived home. The guides and porters were exceptional and more than happy to share their local knowledge. I can highly recommend this company and will definitely use them again on my next visit to Nepal.
