It was wonderful knowing we had good lodges to go home to every night.If I'd had to camp or stay in teahouses, I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much.
Most enjoyed - The scenery! Just stunning, incredible, awesome - the words still don't do it justice. Seeing Everest - a real once in a lifetime thing for me - and very,very special.Bathing an elephant in Bardia and Chitwan.
Out of all the brochures I looked at, yours was by far the best and had the most choice of treks and accommodation to suit all tastes and abilities. I am not a mountaineer and have no desire to be one, so to be given the chance to see and be in the greatest mountain range on Earth has been very special. Thankyou for providing me with the chance to do that.

All the information was sent promptly and the staff in the office were very helpful whenever I rang the office. The lodges used were excellent, particularly the one at Monjo in the Everest region and the three lodges in the Annapurna region.
Everything locally in Nepal was organised in a highly professional and efficient manner. Our tour leader was excellent. He looked out for our welfare at all times and worked very hard to ensure we had an excellent and personal experience. His local knowledge ensured we saw and spoke to local people in the areas we visited.I don't think it did differ from what I expected. I think the country was a surprise but a very pleasant one!

Usually the brochure shows you only the best rooms etc and when you get there you're disappointed - on this trip the accommodation was exactly as described; it was comfortable, cosy, clean. Couldn't have asked for better.
We didn't have to worry about a thing. everything was taken care of. Staff were punctual, friendly and helpful. The trek was harder than I expected even though I'd prepared as much as I could. It would have been nice to spend another day in Namche, or have more time exploring around the lodges (but perhaps we could have done this if I'd not been so slow! The Everest region was harder than expected. The accommodation was better than expected, as was the food. No problems with the water.
I got your brochure at the travel show in Earls Court. You offered the itinerary I wanted and came across as reliable, honest and trustworthy. Staff in Keswick were very helpful and patient with my numerous questions.

Very well structured trip and accommodation. This was the perfect insight to Nepal, seeing both Annapurna and Everest with the luxury of good accommodation and food plus many little extras,eg visiting the leaders Mothers house while on trek and meeting so many others he was familiar with. What I most enjoyed - Friendliness of everyone who were proud to show you there country. This was really as expected and much more. I think that your contacts in Nepal were above expectations. I didn't feel like a tourist I felt that the team enjoyed our company.

Dinesh (trek guide) is an excellent leader and is a credit to KE. From simple details about rooms to big things like organising alternative transport plans, Dinesh had everything planned and executed perfectly. He was attentive, patient and gave a good insight into the local area. What I most enjoyed - The social and community aspect of the trip in the annapurna region. The pace of walking and the views to be taken in. The level of quality of accommodation along the trek.

Just returned from excellent adventure and wanted to particularly mention our main guide Pasang Sherpa. He was unfailingly helpful, interesting and of gentle good humour and made the whole trip very smooth and hassle-free so leaving us to get on with taking great photos and getting breathless! You should make sure you keep him as he is a real asset! Overall the trip was very well organised and most enjoyable- a life ambition achieved!

This holiday surpassed our wildest dreams! Raj (our guide) was outstanding in every aspect of our trip. Thank you for a great experience.

I most enjoyed the nepalese people, the flights in and out of Lukla, happy hour. And - most important - everything is planned and paid for you. Travelling "all-inclusive" - but in the good way.
