Neil & Edna Smith | Dorset, UK

A very professional and very friendly company, we received a high quality of service for our tour to Bardia National Park. Water rafting trip was excellent (even if we did not see any river dolphins). Small and quiet resort (which is what we wanted). Organised our overnight hotel and return morning flight when return flight was cancelled. The driver was very good and looked after us.

Neil Jennings | London, UK

A massive thank you to Isha & the Himalayan Footsteps team in arranging our trip to Everest Base Camp. The trip was amazing as was our Sherpa Dowa who really couldn’t do enough for us – An amazing time & fabulous memories!

Jasmin Bailey | Cornwall, UK

Isha was so helpful and just incredible. As were the hotel staff. My trip was insanely easy and planned. I had no worries at any point. Thank you all so much! I’ve already given the website name to many people. The worst thing about my holiday was saying goodbye.

Dawn Koonkongsatian | Nevada, USA

I’ve already recommended Himalayan Footsteps to other people, my second tour with you guys was excellent! variety and allowed for customisation at all times too. Everyone remembered me and it made me feel very special.

Sarah Doble | East Sussex, UK

Just to say that you were a top-notch recommendation from a friend.  We have had the most wonderful time in India. There were too many highlights to pick just one, the guides and service were excellent.

Polly and Chris Playford | London, UK

We’d recommend you, it was easy to book our holiday, for us the best thing on our holiday were the people, the roads were the worst thing. Excellent holiday.

Billy Huynh | Illinois, USA

Himalayan Footsteps exceeded my expectations for my first time traveling to Nepal. Everyone was so friendly when I arrived and traveling alone I was well taken care of. Isha took care of everything. She and her team continue to reach out and assist me in booking other places while I am in Nepal. I’ll definitely recommend Himalayan Footsteps to anyone travelling for the first time to Nepal. Everything was well organized.
Love, Joy & Gratitude.

Tim McLoughlin & Family | Buckinghamshire, UK

It was great, a real adventure! We were very well looked after throughout the tour. The worst thing about the holiday was coming home. Many thanks for everything.

Marina de Moraes and Guilherme Pinheiro | Hyderabad, India

My friend’s daughter that appreciated your service told us about you. We enjoyed everything especially seeing the best sunrise on the mountains. We really liked the attention and how effective Isha’s support was to us during the trip.

Mark and Sue Shaw | Devon, UK

Without a doubt, we’d recommend you. An excellent holiday and well organised. All the guides were great and very knowledgeable. Always felt that we were in good, safe hands. Drivers all excellent. Thanks again for your help, advice and planning.

Tayara Pereira | São Paulo, Brazil

My friend Neli recommended you, my best thing was the Annapurna Trekking and I honestly don’t have any suggestion for improvements, everything went perfectly! I’d definitely recommend Himalayan Footsteps.

Wojciech Poplawski | Poland

True social enterprise, family business, tailored experience and a lot of passion to people and local communities. Great experience! I liked my time in Nepal. It was enlightening, I met a lot of friendly people. I will definitely come back.

Helen and Penny | Bristol, UK

Overall an excellent trip of a lifetime. We will not hesitate to use Himalayan Footsteps again when planning our next trip to Nepal and hopefully Tibet. Isha was incredibly helpful in organising the trip, and everyone during the trip was welcoming and amazing. Too many good experiences to choose just one, however making Momo’s was a particular highlight and being welcomed like family everywhere we went. Staying with Isha’s family was a wonderful experience and we’re now lucky enough to have a Nepalese mum!

Karen Naylor | London, UK

Incredible holiday – well organised with excellent customer service levels, friendly staff and knowledgeable guides. Overall just a wonderful time. And I would like to thank Isha for all the help and guidance she gave me. I had numerous questions and all answers were provided with no fuss even at weekends. Amazing level of service.

Chris and Penny Ridge | Devon, UK

Thank you for the trip of a lifetime 🙂 Penny and I would like to thank you all at Himalayan Footsteps for the care and attention that went into organising our personalised itinerary for our recent trip to Nepal. We would especially like to thank our guides, drivers, and Sherpa. We were very well looked after by the team, speaking to us personally at every key stage of the trip. Everyone worked hard to give us a memorable trip, I could not recommend them all more highly.

Charles, Molly and Florence Skinner | London, UK

I would highly recommend Himalayan Footsteps both in the UK and in Nepal. Everybody I have come across has been delightful and very helpful, particularly the flexibility shown when changes were asked for. We loved the Nepalese people, the hills, and the high-quality hotels.

Dawn Koonkongsatian | Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Very personable and reassuring, I would use Himalayan Footsteps again and recommend them. My yoga retreat was like being with family, my whole trip was a wonderful experience and still so much I would love to do. Here is a picture of me at the yoga center enjoying a walk with one of the instructors.

Mariza and Zinzan Fraser | Hartlepool, UK

My son and I had the most amazing time and we loved every minute of it. Accommodation was fantastic and all the trips arranged were excellent.  Thank you so much for looking after us so well. Overall I give you a 20 out of 10. Thank you and I look forward to my next trip with you, I will definitely book with you again.

Anthony Di Cintio | Montreal, Canada

After having spent more than 2 months on holiday with Himalayan Footsteps, I can confidently say that the itinerary was well organized, maintained, and smooth. Even in the moments where last minute changes needed to be made, the transition was flawless. I felt cared for from day one with all requests and interests attended to. My favourite part was spending 5 days in a rural village in Nepal with an incredible and welcoming family during Nepal’s biggest festival. I was truly beyond satisfied with my experience. The team at Himalayan Footsteps were caring, welcoming, and ensured that the tour I had in mind was successful. Thank you for an incredible 60 days journey!

Tammy Paltchikov | Sofia, Bulgaria

I had an absolutely fantastic trip in Nepal.  Everyone was extremely helpful and gracious – I had no worries from the time I arrived until I departed.  The monastery was fantastic, really enjoyed the 2 days of guided Kathmandu, the mountain biking tour was unbelieveable.  In short, I was very, very happy with everyone and with the hotel services. I have already told a few friends about you – so hope that will send some business your way. Thanks again for the wonderful experience!

Therese Richardson | Douglasville, Georgia, USA

An excellent tour and customer service, I was extremely satisfied with every guide and driver that we met and the local representatives were wonderful.

Maria Schymura | Albany, New York, USA

Fascinating places and culture, excellent service! Thank you.

Betsy Kholer | Skillman, New Jersey, USA

A great tour… we could not have done it without you! Our driver was excellent and we enjoyed our guides as well. It was well organized and we could customize it to our liking,  we could travel as our own group, and not have to travel with others.

John and Sheila Ashby | Boltby, Thirsk, UK

We had a great trip to Nepal – what a beautiful place, your guides and the backup were superb considering the problems with the country’s fuel shortage. Thanks to you and your staff for helping us travel around; the guides in Kathmandu and Pokhara were great, the young men who took us rafting were brilliant!

Catriona and Scott McAuley | Bathgate, UK

Every guide was perfect. Knowledgeable, friendly and fun. There was a lot of laughter 🙂 The team in the UK & Nepal went above and beyond to make our stay exceptional. Can’t praise the guys and girls enough. The whole trip was exceptional. The team in Nepal were faultless and could not have been friendlier. It is not the devastated place the media would have you believe, yes there has been damage, but the people of Nepal need tourists to bring money so they can rebuild. Often we were the only people in the hotels, or restaurants, which was sad, but we would recommend anyone to go – It is a beautiful country, with so much to see and do, has fantastic people and was by far the best trip hubby and I have ever taken.

Jordan and Stuart Piper | Pontefract, UK

We have already recommended you to a number of people and hope to book another trip with yourselves over the next few years. Guides were always on time. They were extremely knowledgeable, kind, funny and professional. It was like travelling with friends. We always knew where we needed to be and who was meeting us. The manager called us at every stop to make sure that we were okay. We would not have had such an amazing experience had we not booked with Himalayan Footsteps! Our trip was excellent value for money, thank you!

Kay Cutler & Amber Pescud | Muswellbrook, Australia

I would have no hesitation in recommending Himalayan Footsteps to my friends. I found the tour very professional and well organised. I found the guides went out of their way to make our holiday enjoyable. I strongly advise you to consider opening an agency in Australia for people who don’t have internet access. My sincere thanks for a great holiday and giving me the opportunity to meet the wonderful Nepalese people.

Alisson Teixeira | London, UK

I would recommend Himalayan Footsteps to everyone for sure. From the beginning to the end they provided me a great service, they were all very respectful and friendly with me. Very professional.

Paul Thomas | Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK

An excellent holiday and something to always remember! Will take more mosquito repellant next time. Definitely recommend you!

Watch Paul’s video testimony.

Damian Brown | Frankfurt, Germany

The trip was amazing and far exceeded my expectations, I had such a wonderful time and I was very sad that I had to return home yesterday. During my time there I made many friends, some from Nepal and others visiting Kopan who were from all around the world. It was all quite a special experience, every part was a fantastic, thank you again. I also want to feedback specifically about how wonderful all your team were in Nepal.

Robyn Sheehan | Dublin, Ireland

Overall a great trip. Highly recommend Nepal as a destination and the Himalayan Yoga Retreat!

Darryl Cullen | Manchester, UK

My holiday was excellent, guides were attentive and knowledgeable with great service especially from Isha. I would travel again with Himalayan Footsteps.

Deborah Wootton | Porthcawl, UK

The whole trip was incredible, a personalised programme was amazing and the tour guides were exceptional. I will certainly recommend you to others. Thanks again for organising an amazing experience.

Robert Panton | Romford, UK

Everything was well organised with no problems, the guy looking after us was very good and gave us all the help needed when needed. No complaints here.

Hendrina Kretsenger | Centurion, South Africa

Everything was excellent, I’d recommend you, I was very happy, thank you.

Becky Eickworth | Carefree, Arizona, USA

Words are neither adequate nor eloquent enough to convey to you how thankful I am to you for the INCREDIBLE experience and adventure you made possible during my journey to Nepal and India…the entire trip turned out to be such a delight and you seemed to have been able to read my mind because it fit SO WELL with my lifestyle. I’m already singing your praises to friends!!! Each destination seemed totally designed for my needs and lifestyle. The best thing about my holiday was the diversity of the activities…from trekking to meditating to witnessing humanity in its different guises…. and one of the HIGH POINTS was the opportunity to meet all of you and discover what LOVELY people are behind the gift of this adventure…

Thank You just doesn’t suffice, but it’s all I’ve got….so…THANK YOU, dear people….I wish you well….NAMASTE!!!!

John Everist | London, UK

Excellent service, I would travel with you again.

Inger Needham, Marcus Fisher and Francesca Dunn | Worthing, UK

The guide and driver in Bhutan were absolutely brilliant. They were friendly, knowledgeable, informative and generally a pleasure to be with. It was easy to arrange and very easy to change the itinerary to suit us. I found you very helpful.

Mark Johnston and Lizzie Sellars | Sheffield, UK

Well organised, tour guides were first class, very experienced and fantastic people, generally fantastic accommodation especially Fish Tail Lodge.

Bill Young | Oamaru, New Zealand

A well organised, smooth operation, thank you for a wonderful tour, Kopan was a total surprise I think it will be a few months before I digest it all. loved it. then as if it couldn’t get any better we had our amazing tour. It was so good to meet you guys in Pokhara thanks for your kind hospitality. I met so many beautiful people and made so many wonderful friends this whole trip has been fantastic. if you ever come to N.Z. don’t hesitate to call me as I would love to return your hospitality.

love Bill x

Shellie Woodrow | Yanchep, Australia

An amazing trip! Will be doing again next year. Himalayan Footsteps always went above and beyond, it was a life-changing experience I will always remember the people who obviously have a passion for the country as well as their customers.

Steve Wallis | Dorest, UK

Very pleasant people both in the UK where I booked and Nepal. The prices for the trip, tour and course were exceptional value. I would use Himalayan Footsteps again and definitely recommend you!

Neli Casimiro | São Paulo, Brazil

Amazing staff and I felt all the time supported by HF. Nepal isn’t for beginners but your help was a huge difference! Thanks a million!! The guides were excellent, always on time!

Karen Allsop | Manchester, UK

I had an excellent time holidaying in Kathmandu, the best things were Kopan Monastery, the day trips and Hotel Ganesh Himal. No negative comments to make, will travel with Himalayan Footsteps again.

Colin & Elizabeth Singleton | Reading, UK

We loved everything but what made it exceptional was that it was tailor-made to suit us. And it seemed cheaper than competitors. It was good to have an equipment list. But it could be improved as it could be clearer about what bed linen would be provided when in Tibet. We would use Himalayan Footsteps again and recommend you to others.

Vanessa & Liz | Sheffield, UK

It was a great holiday. There was a high level of variety and we felt like we got to see a lot of the highlights of the country. We already talking about going back one day! Thank you so much!

It was incredibly easy to book! I really did feel like you were doing all the hard work. Any questions I had were answered quickly. The worst thing about our holiday was the variable standard of Masala Tea 🙂

Naomi Porat | San Francisco, USA

Dear Isha and the Himalayan Footsteps Family, thank you so much for the delicious birthday cake! I was so surprised and delighted to receive the gifts delivered to my room tonight after a wonderful birthday celebration with new friends I made in Nepal during my trip.

You are the absolutely most wonderful travel organization in the world! We have been so impressed with your guides and the care and details that your team has provided to us. We feel so taken care of and appreciate so much all the details arranged for our adventures, comfort and security.

Thank you so much for everything. This is the best trip and experience of our lives. Absolutely life changing! I’ll definitely call you when I return to let you know all the details.  Thanks again to your local team for the impeccable arrangements!

Stiliana Alexieva | London, UK

Thank you for everything! It was so nice to meet your family and to be accepted in their house and everyday life. Recommending Himalayan Footsteps to all my friends. You were so professional. Thank you again for giving me this incredible experience! xxx

Simon Gorman | Burford, UK

I just want to give my personal thanks for helping me book my holiday of a lifetime and as a result has changed my life. I will without doubt be going back to Nepal. Images I will be in awe of for the rest of my life and memories that will stay with me forever! So very impressed with the level of service. Isha was the most helpful travel agent I have ever dealt with.”

Sarah Webster | Singapore

Thanks for a brilliant time, very professional friendly guides who knew so much and were very personable, I just loved spending time with them. I’d use you again, it was an excellent trip.

12 February 2014 | Precious & Dennis | Pretoria, South Africa

Nepal “Thank you very much for everything. Especially many thanks to Isha for organising this trip and making sure we are well taken of. Kathmandu was the best and perfect tours:) We would book again with Himalayan Footsteps, it was an excellent trip.”

13 January 2014 | Dylan James | Devon, UK

Nepal “Isha is fantastic, she really took the time to understand what we wanted from our trip to Nepal. She patiently answered all the questions and queries we had (there were a few)!  She came up with a wonderful itinerary and made some great suggestions based on her experience, knowledge and insight. Striking a perfect balance of trekking, sightseeing and relaxation. I would highly recommend Isha and Himalayan Footsteps – fantastic service and value, without compromising any of quality.”

22 November 2013 | Martin & Alexis Barnes | Hong Kong

Nepal & Bhutan “Generally very good. Everything happened as it was supposed to and we really had a great time. I would recommend you!”

20 November 2013 | Beverley Blackham | Shefford, UK

Nepal “Very sad to be leaving Nepal, we have had a wonderful experience on our Everest Base Camp Trek and have witnessed stunning views at every point of our trip except at Nagargot. We have to stress the professionalism and commitment of the guides throughout the trip but would especially name Ganga who was exceptional. We would use Himalayan Footsteps again and recommend them to other people, an excellent holiday.”

31 October 2013 | Jeanette Fleming | Keighley, UK

Nepal “The whole Cookery Holiday experience and variety of activities were catered for, friendly, with care and consideration. I loved the cooking course, scenery, sights, history, art, people, food, nature, animals in the wild, mountains, temples, river trips, and good comfortable accommodation and good food and service. Give all concerned a pat on the back and a few stars, and thanks for letting me meet your family and people. Loved the whole experience, would like to come back, may trek too, thanks once again Jeanette.”

28 October 2013 | Ruth Zandstra | Amersfoort, The Netherlands

Nepal “My Everest Base Camp trek was an unforgettable one, the breathtaking landscape of the Khumbu region and the care of my guide Dawa who did everything in his power to make my trip memorable. My experience was fantastic with excellent service, I recommend Himalayan Footsteps.”

27 October 2013 | Stuart & Catherine Hurman | Gosport, UK

Nepal “Our overall experience was excellent, the guides knowledgeable about their subjects and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the different experiences and beautiful scenery the most. It is a holiday I would certainly recommend to others.”

01 July 2013 | Maximilian Rostalski | Einbeck, Germany

Nepal “Dear Isha, the trip was absolutely amazing. Especially your guides were awesome and I really had a lot of fun during the programme and in addition to that they really cared about me getting to know the culture! Thank you very much and I hope to stay in contact :)”

30 June 2013 | Susanna Clark | Boscombe, UK

Nepal “Hi Isha, Thank you so much for all your help, I very much enjoyed my trip. The support was fantastic, everyone was so friendly.”

18 May 2013 | Brit & Irene Temby | Glenrothes, UK

India “That’s us home in cold and rainy Scotland, quite a contrast from 42 degrees yesterday in Delhi. It was a very enjoyable trip. You can see some of our photos on Facebook. I will also upload some to Flicker (you can find me as Tembuk on Flickr). Many thanks for all you work in organising this for us, we always felt very safe and looked after while in India.”

13 March 2013 | Sirin Sevinc | London, UK

Nepal “It was very well organised! everything was on time and the staff was amazing! very helpful and friendly and always kept me company. The thing I liked the most about this trip was, it was specifically tailored for me. I could make the necessary updates as I wanted so was quite flexible in that sense. It was very well organised. All the staff I met and the tour guides they were amazing. really helpful and made sure I was happy and comfortable. Life is not easy in Nepal, there are electricity cuts and strikes all the time but the best thing is, my trip was never affected and everything was according to the plan.”

01 February 2013 | Angeliki Parianos | London, UK

Nepal “Nepal was great! and so was the volunteering. I am very glad that I experienced it :-)”


14 December 2012 | Christine Margry | Friston, UK

India “I spent time in the National Parks with great tiger sightings, my guide Sid was excellent. Have been treated like royalty, amazing hospitality, can’t wait to plan my next trip.”

13 December 2012 | Charlie Margry | Melbourne, Australia

India, Bhutan, Nepal “I loved the variety – so many places to go, things to see. A wonderful mixture of culture and adventure. Travelling on my own was a bit boring. Possibly better to travel in groups or to stay in a hostel as it’s easier to meet people.”

05 November 2012 | Jean Penny | Bletchley, UK

Nepal “I enjoyed everything about the holiday experiencing the different culture and seeing how people live and work in Nepal, however, the activity that I enjoyed most on the tour was the Rafting and overnight on the beach. This holiday was the most amazing holiday we’ve ever been on. Being able to experience the different places in Nepal was fabulous and showed completely different things. We loved the craziness of Kathmandu but loved the peace and beauty of Pokhara. I have never travelled with a company that has offered the completely amazing service that Himalayan Footsteps provides.”

24 October 2012 | Neil Mackenzie and Barry Hewitt | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “We liked the wonderful hospitality and friends we made. Our time in Chang Patan was wonderful and it’s very exciting knowing we will be back, but this time with 50 other people!”

16 August 2012 | Howard Llewellyn | Elgin, UK

Nepal “We all had a GREAT time and are sad to be back. Nepal was wonderful. Your organisation was fantastic and meant we felt very confidant as to what was happening at all times.”

07 June 2012 | George & Liene | Guernsey, UK

Nepal & India “Thank you for organising an amazing holiday for us both. We are still lost for words until people ask to see our photos. I will recommend Himalayan Footsteps to everybody that asks me about our honeymoon. Thank you again, George & Liene.”

21 April 2012 | Tom McGuire | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “What I like most about our holiday was the personalised service and flexibility from booking to arriving to coming home. Wonderful! I would suggest adding notes about porter baggage packing into the trip guidelines and I’m extremely likely to recommend Himalayan Footsteps to others”.

05 April 2012 | Lou Rouse | King's Lynn, UK

Nepal “The Buddhist retreat was my favourite part of my trip! I am very satisfied with the holiday and I would recommend Himalayan Footsteps to others, especially women who wish to travel solo”.

26 March 2012 | Annette Wessmann | Glasgow, UK

Nepal “I am extremely likely to recommend Himalayan Footsteps to others and I was very satisfied with my experience. I liked that it was so individually organised,other companies usually have a set trip agenda which does not leave much space for individual preferences, and that’s why I did not use other companies. The friendliness of Nepali people is outstanding! I really liked having a taxi as transport medium rather than travelling with the bus which made my journey easier and more comfortable. The trek was lovely and it was amazing to be so close to the beautiful mountains”.

24 February 2012 | Lou Rouse | Kings Lynn, UK

Nepal “Dear Isha, Thank you for your well wishes. Just to let you know I made it safely and am being really well looked after. Its lovely!”

17 February 2012 | Paul and Sandra Cheney | Cynwyl Elfed, UK

Nepal & Darjeeling “It was fantastic. A trip of  a lifetime to meet wonderful people in a fascinating country. Your staff and their service was first class, your company is exceptional, don’t change a thing. We’d love to go back again because your staff know the country which means we can plan our holiday from the UK and enjoy our holiday when we get there.”

03 February 2012 | Jan Ferguson | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “A massive thanks to Isha and Olly at Himalayan Footsteps for organising my travel and accommodation in Kathmandu. Everything went like clockwork and couldn’t have been simpler. Even the little things like being met at the airport and taken straight to my hotel, make a big difference after travelling for 18 hours!! The Hotel Ganesh Himal was very comfortable with friendly, helpful staff, a lovely garden and a rooftop terrace for the views. Close enough to the buzz of Thamel without being in it…so quiet and peaceful to return to. Himalayan Footsteps did exactly what I asked and took the stress out of travelling solo to a far flung place! If I’m ever lucky enough to return to Nepal, I would have no hesitation in handing over my entire trip to their capable hands. Thank you again”.

20 January 2012 | Paul & Sandra Cheney | Cynwyl Elfed, UK

Nepal “We found your company to be exceptional! Our trip was fantastic, a trip of a lifetime to meet wonderful people in a fascinating country. Your staff and their service was first class, don’t change a thing. Because your staff know the country, we were able to plan from the UK & enjoy Nepal. It is a great system”.

21 November 2011 | Muriel George | Seafield, UK

Nepal & Darjeeling “Our friends are hanging on all we tell them, our trip was second to none. Just to let you know how much we appreciated the assistance of Himalayan Footsteps. You enabled a very special holiday to become all we hoped it would be – and more. I trust you will continue to make dreams come true.”

20 January 2012 | Richard Binstead | Southampton, UK

Nepal “I very much look forward to the trip, it has been a dream of mine for a long time to trek Everest Base Camp and I am glad to be going with your company.”

02 April 2011 | Nikolaus Vafeiopoulos | Edinburgh, UK

India “Himalayan Footsteps’ service in the UK and in India was excellent! I am very happy to have taken this trip, and to have booked with your exceptional company! The staff in India took very warm care of me, and when I was ill for a couple of days Gurmet was like a nurse for me! Is there any possibility that we can send a small present to him?”

17 December 2010 | Niranjan Prasad Pant | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “Thank you for choosing and booking the best flight for me to Kathmandu. I really had a pleasant journey with good transit connection and will contact you again soon for my US trip.”

26 November 2010 | Mike Ryan | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “I forgot to drop you a note to let you know that I had an unforgettable 5 weeks in your lovely homeland, all the travel arrangements you made for me worked perfectly, I am very grateful to you.”

10 November 2010 | Dan and Gail Vencker | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “Very well organised and implemented. We always felt safe, had several contacts in case of problems, and had good advice about the do’s and don’ts of travelling in Nepal. The holiday was also very good value for money. Himalayan Footsteps have been truly great and helped us to have, possibly, the best holiday we’ve ever had.”

20 October 2010 | Jane Barlow | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “Thank you for arranging such a wonderful trip! Nepal is such a beautiful country; nice food, amazing scenery and incredibly nice people – I made many friends including Mukhiya and his family, Saroj and Sanu – they looked after me so well. I hope to go back to Nepal and do the same holiday again with my partner and some friends. I’ll let you know when my article gets published.

17 October 2010 | Annie Ho | Aberdeen, UK

Nepal “Service from Himalayan Footsteps was first class, very accommodating, thank you. Your staff in Nepal were excellent in their friendliness, service, and understanding of English. I would like to go back and visit Bardia National Park.”

27 September 2010 | Jason Russell & Lucy Head | Loanhead, UK

Nepal “Fantastic, awesome, amazing. 3 words to describe 3 unforgettable weeks in Nepal. What a wonderful holiday, from the moment we were picked up and taken to the airport we have been exceptionally well looked after. Our hotels were clean and welcoming, our guides were friendly and knowledgeable. You pieced together an itinerary that was a perfect balance of adventure and relaxation, culture and wildlife, temples and gardens. If we pieced together this holiday ourselves it would have been a shadow of the holiday that you created for us. Our time in Nepal was incredible value and our memories will last a lifetime. We will be recommending Himalayan Footsteps to all of our friends and colleagues, thanks again, now can we talk about Bhutan?”

26 August 2010 | Katie Connor | Kilmarnock, UK

Nepal “Whole experience was great! Staff in Nepal were very friendly.”

25 August 2010 | Kevin Henderson | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “An excellent trip to Everest Base Camp, sitting on top of Kalapattar was my best experience. Perhaps the guides might have better English.”

12 August 2010 | David Luther | Taunton, UK

Nepal “Trekking was fantastic! Everything was good!”

05 July 2010 | Molly Kenward | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “Very helpful and friendly staff. Overall everything ran smoothly and the few ‘bumps in the road’ during the trek to Everest Base Camp were dealt with professionally and considerately. I would travel with you again.”

24 June 2010 | Maggie Cook | Doncaster, UK

Nepal & Tibet “We had the best experience seeing the Base Camp of Mount Everest, good service and a good trip.”

21 June 2010 | University Medical Students | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “Excellent, helpful and friendly service, our guide Bajaya was fantastic and we all loved him. We had a fantastic trek to Everest Base Camp. Thank You!”

06 June 2010 | Anna Martin | Norfolk, UK

Nepal “My best experience was the rest day at Namche, fantastic trek to acclimatise and visited Edmund Hillary’s Hospital – very informative and guides were all very helpful. You could have done nothing more to make our trip more enjoable, accommodation and staff were very high standard.”

03 June 2010 | Therese and Peter Duriez | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “Really well managed, all experiences were equally the best but the jungle was huge fun and we loved the final night cultural event, service was excellent. You could have done nothing more to make our holiday more enjoyable, 10 out of 10, thank you!”

03 March 2010 | Simon Beggs | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “Thank you again for coming along to speak with Edinburgh University Medics about our group trek to Everest with Himalayan Footsteps, it was a very big help.”

26 October 2009 | Celine and Gary Moyes | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal & Bhutan “Thank you for organising such a great trip for us. We had a wonderful time and loved every bit if it. This first trip to Asia was fantastic and we really hope we’ll be able to go back to Nepal some day!”

19 October 2009 | Laura and Olivier Cordin | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “I write to thank you for the great organisation of our honeymoon. Everything went really well and we had a great time in a wonderful country that we would like to visit again. 10 out of 10.”

20 September 2009 | Rosie and Gordon Peacock | Edinburgh, UK

Nepal “Nepalese hospitality is second to none, Ram & Bishnu at green Peace Resort treated us like family. Who else can say they bungeed, played with elephants, white water rafted, watched rhinos and drank raxi on their honeymoon! We really can’t commend the guide enough, wonderful and extremely knowledgeable and now a good friend. We’re ready to go back! 10 out of 10.”

08 July 2009 | Mr Scott Dunlop | Dalkeith, UK

Nepal “flights – excellent, hotels – excellent, Last Resort and Greenpeace Resort – fantastic, Josie was amazing and a great deal of help,  sightseeing/activities – excellent, best experience was Bungee.”

Our purpose is to improve lives of generations to come in the countries we serve.
