Trekking Annapurna Circuit and Poon Hill

(5/5)

Doing a trekking trip with Info Nepal Treks and Expedition was possibly the best way to have a well organized, safe and awesome trip. Especially Raju who set everything up for me is really caring and interested that everything is going the way I want it to be. He was checking almost every day on me while the trip to make sure everything is all right. The guide he choose for me was great as well, knew a lot about the area and nature and always found the nicests and most comfortable guest houses. Even when I got sick and had to stop and come back for recovery he was really worried about me and managed everything to make me feel better. After recovery he organized an alternative route so that I could still have a greater mountain trekking adventure.

I've also been staying in Rajus hotel all the time I was in Kathmandu and it is really comfortable, clean and the stuff is super friendly, I got asked if I need help with anything all the time. There is also great laundry service and I got picked up from the airport.

Thank you so much Raju!!!

Annapurna Circuit

(5/5)

Raju was very helpful in helping us prepare for our Annapurna Circuit Trek. We stopped into his hotel to inquire about booking a private car from Kathmandu to Bessi and he was eager to book one for us at a very reasonable price. Even though we didn't hire end up hiring a guide, Raju made sure to exchange contact information with us and checked up with us throughout our trek. It was very reassuring to hear from him and know that we could contact him with any questions. Thanks Raju!
