A perfect first impression of Nepal
We had such a wonderful time in Nepal thanks to Era and crew, who organized a tailor-made trip that combined the beauty of the mountains, the wildness of the jungle, and the fascinating culture within the country. We loved it! They took our wishes into account (some planned, some last-minute!) and made everything possible.
Our guide, Suman, was very patient, attentive, and understanding when our tummies disagreed with the itinerary. We are sorry we were unable to do more with him!
Our driver got us safely (and with considerable skill) to our destinations.
Communication was quick and heartfelt before, during, and afterward.
We'll definitely book with you again in 2024!
