Client Reviews

Marcus Marcus England
The Experience was Simply Amazing, EBC Trek

“With Real Adventure Nepal Traveling Company, I recently finished the Everest Base Camp Trek, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my experience. Madhu, our tour guide, was simply exceptional. He was well-informed, affable, and went above and beyond to make sure that everyone in our party had a fun and safe vacation. Madhu was there to answer any questions we had and to give us important information about the walk ahead from the moment we landed in Nepal. The journey was made much more enjoyable by his terrific sense of humor and his willingness to assist. To anyone wishing to travel to Everest Base Camp, I would heartily suggest Real Adventure Nepal Traveling Company, particularly Madhu.
