    Bhupendra's 6 days trip to kathmandu

    I recently traveled to Nepal, covering Kathmandu, Nagarkot, and Pokhara. I am very thankful to Mr. Bhagwat for all the arrangements, including Pasupathi Nath Temple Darshan and other famous places. The trip was a dream come true Mr. Bhagwat planned a perfect trip with excellent accommodations. All t
    he transportation was on time with a good cab and driver. Mr. Bhagwat was personally taking care of each and everything, and he was just a phone call away for anything we need. He is a fantastic person who guided us as well for the excellent shopping places. He provided a very dedicated service with proper follow-up. The only regret from this tour that we missed to view Mount Everest our flight got canceled due to bad weather; however, we got all the refunds. Thanks to the Himalayan tour agency, I will highly recommend them to others who are planning their trips to Nepal.

    Travel Agent given good response. But cab provided for pokhara is not in good condition. Also driver is not cooperative, not understanding our communication which resulted we didn't satisfied that part of the tour which covers 60 percent of our tour, due to that particular cab and driver. The ca

Rest travel agent is very cooperative and flexible. Agent is given good response and cooperation in every need. My family enjoyed with Everest mountains drive by flight round trip. It is worth seeing.
