  • Great Company to arrange Honeymoon tour in Nepal

    I am writing this to compliment and commend your excellent service. I am very grateful to the Escape Nepal team though I paid and got more than I expected. I and my wife visited there for Honeymoon, and some adventure trip that you guys organize was extremely successful. Arjun did great management from arrival to departure.

    Our Guide Suraj did a great job. Thanks for cheering around the trip my friends at our tiring, struggling moments. It is awesome to have good food at the high mountain which we hardly imagine about. Kathmandu and Pokhara both amazingly different from where we live so I enjoyed the moment we been there.

    I am very delighted to decide to choose Escape Nepal to organize a honeymoon tour which is price worthy and service is excellent. May not be for a long time but will visit again. Thank you for helping to make our trip a huge success.

  • 5 Day 4 Night Poon Hill trek

    It was our first time in Nepal, and we can safely say that we had made the right choice to travel with Escape Nepal. The company was very accommodating, and service was great for the entire trek of Ghorepani Poon hill.

    Our guide Arjun is very knowledgeable and fluent in English. One of our baggage was delayed during the flight, and Escape Nepal collected the baggage on our behalf and sent it to Pokhara for us such that our plan was not disrupted.

    The porters and guides were sincere and trustworthy, always looking out for our well-being. We will choose Escape Nepal again for our next trip to Nepal.

  • Tibet Lhasa Tour

    I had a tour with Escape Nepal. Our tour guide was the best we saw on the trip, very nice to talk to, and felt like great friends. He took care of everything we needed, no problem. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time on the Tibet Lhasa tour.

    We Highly recommend Escape Nepal!

  • The Annapurna Base Camp Trek

    Arjun (The founder of the company) was very prompt in replying to our queries via our email from the start. He provided a very clear itinerary and detailed explanations of the preparations we will need in trekking to Annapurna base camp. Payments/Booking was absolutely done professionally, and there weren't any hidden fees/extra charges from the beginning till the end.

    2 out of 9 of us got their flights overbooked and had to detour to India, and The Escape Nepal went the extra mile by helping the 2 to make all the necessary arrangements (extra inbound flight tickets, extra nights in Kathmandu, airport transfers, etc.) to ensure that the 2 friends got to meet the rest of the team to start the ABC trek from Pokhara together.

    Escape Nepal was very kind enough to lend us their sleeping bags & down jacket for free (trust me, if you come from a hot/tropical country like ours, your normal camping sleeping bags will freeze you to death on Base Camp. So use theirs instead).

    Our mountain guide - Amar Khan, was absolutely perfect. He's young, energetic, funny, and truly a great leader. He has a tremendous amount of experience and we always felt that we are in good hands. Also, I think Amar is quite a good singer. He likes to sing while trekking, which adds to the fun and experience of our trekking as well.

    Our porters are a great bunch of fun Nepali young boys, not only do they diligently carry our luggage. They added much fun to the journey through little interactions with us even though they speak very limited English.

    We sang and danced together with a little help of raksi (the local wine), and there many local Nepali and some guesthouse guests joined.

    I strongly recommend everyone planning to visit Nepal to use Escape Nepal's service - you really will see and feel Nepal so much more. And you will be comforted in knowing that the money you spent on your holiday will be earned by local Nepali people - who will appreciate it so much more than you'd know. You will come to Nepal as a stranger - and left like you'd leave home and friends.

  • Great Company for Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

    I booked my whole holiday in Nepal with Escape Nepal that includes a cultural tour in Kathmandu, Ghorepani-Poonhill trek, rafting, paragliding, Pokhara stay, etc.

    First of all, I booked with them because I liked their answers to my initial inquiries, which are very quick, exhaustive, professional, and they made an effort to tailor the tour to my needs and constraints. From my landing in Nepal to the moment of departure for the airport on the last day the organization was perfect (and I can be picky!): always on time, very reliable service, according to plan, with professional drivers, guides and other, and also leaving me enough free time to be on my own.

    They also invited me to dinner on my last day, which I appreciated a lot because it was clear they cared about the feedback about the tour. I must throw in a special word for the guide I had in the mountains, who was great, really knew his job, was very supportive and attentive, spoke very good English, and became a real friend.

    Being a solo traveler, it was especially nice to have an interesting interlocutor as a guide, and they picked a really good one for me. I think, I will go back to Nepal, as I would like to do another trek now that I got some confidence in my capacity, and I will book with them again.

    I must say it was the best tour agency I ever worked with (and I used services of many, in Europe and elsewhere, for different trips).

    I had a great holiday as a result.

  • Amazing introduction of country - the best of Nepal

    I had just 12 days of adventure in Nepal and thanks to Arjun and the team at Escape Nepal. It was an amazing well-rounded experience. I started with a tour of the temples and culture in Kathmandu, followed by a trek in the Annapurna ranges, I then headed into the jungle for some more adventure.

    As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe and had no problems. My guides for the trek was Suraj and Ramesh were fantastic with extensive knowledge of Nepal and even managed to teach me a bit of Nepali!

    The benefit of having Escape Nepal organized your trip for you is that you can relax and enjoy your travels. I didn't have to worry about bus connections to travel around the country as they sorted it all out for me.

    I'd recommend Escape Nepal to friends and family. I had such a great experience, I plan on returning to Nepal to do the Everest Base Camp trek in the future.

  • Annapurna circuit and Annapurna base Camp Trek

    My son and I have just returned from a 5+ week trekking holiday in Nepal, expertly organized by Escape Nepal. We did two treks totaling 30 days that includes the Annapurna circuit and Annapurna base camp using an itinerary suggested by Arjun at Escape Nepal which fitted the bill perfectly.

    Escape Nepal was prompt in responding to our queries and made suggestions that worked perfectly. The holiday was arranged efficiently with a minimum of fuss. Because of the total length of the trek, we had 2 porters, Sunil and Shambhu, who were delightful, helpful, and fun, and our excellent guide, Santosh looked after us well.

    Santosh has excellent English. His knowledge, experience, and organizing abilities were superb and resulted in our being in the greatest degree of comfort possible in the mountains. He skillfully altered the schedule as we went along. From our many conversations as we went along, we learned a great deal about Nepal generally.

    If you want a trekking company, I would not go for a European one. They charge a great deal more money, and they then subcontract to a Nepali trekking company anyway. You don't need a European guide, they don't know Nepal nearly as well and don't speak the language.

    Escape Nepal is well used to dealing with the needs and wishes of foreign tourists and met our every need most charmingly.

  • Everest Base Camp Trek with Escape Nepal

    I used Escape Nepal for a trek to Everest Base Camp in April, and it was one of the best decisions. The customer service was excellent. I got altitude sickness seven days into my trek and had to come down, and they handled everything seamlessly.

    In what could have been a scary situation, they made it very easy and simple. Once, I came down, they stayed with me at the hospital and then organized the remainder of my trip to another city.

    They took care of all transportation and accommodations when they didn't have to. Again, excellent customer service and they definitely deserve a five-star rating.

    All that aside, the Escape Nepal are really great people.
