Mr. Kartik and Mairead Rawal were on the Best of Nepal honeymoon tour with Explore Himalaya this spring. After the completion of the tour the couple gave the feedback regarding their entire tour and the services provided by the service suppliers. Here it goes their feedback on their Best of Nepal Tour.
Meeting and handling was great. Gobinda was excellent. Mr. Gobinda is a very good agent. His support was very much vital for our trip. He made our first meet special and handled it so well.
Our Tour Guide Bhuwan Bhandari was above average. He was very much knowledgeable about the area. We would be more pleased if he was bit more energetic and proactive. However, it is understandable.
At Kathmandu Hotel Dwarika was brilliant. It had great rooms, good food and outstanding facilities. It was bit expensive but worth it. It was perfect for a honeymoon trip. Tiger Tops at Chitwan was also excellent. It provided absolutely brilliant service. Hotel Shangri-La at Pokhara was equally good but we felt like the rooms were little bit outdated. Redecoration will make them perfect. Bandipur is an exotic place but to serve the guest, especially the guests on their honeymoon tour, few better hotels or resorts are necessary. Despite of wonderful location the services at the hotels were limited.
The transportation was very good. Itinerary was great but I wished I had skipped Bandipur. The place is great but obviously needs the additional infrastructures and amenities to entertain the tourists.
Overall, we enjoyed the trip very much. I would love to thank Mr. Gobinda who was so important for us throughout the trip. One last thing,I would recommend to use the face mask to avoid dust during the tour of Kathmandu.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
