    We experienced excellent costumer service by this company .in Kathmandu there are tons of adventure companies to choose but it can be hard to differentiate but we did this one certainly. The trip was incredible and at any moment if I needed to contact Keshab he would reply almost immediately. the agency was very friendly and patient, provided us with a lot of great information and ideas and together we planned a trek tailored to our specific needs (including scheduling specific rest days and places during the trek). The Guide and porter provided to us by the agency, they were accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. He even had suggestions to make our trip more enjoyable and easier for us. I highly recommend this agency thank for you’re all helped for our dream to succeed Everest Base Camp Trekking.
