    Classic Nepal

    Fantastic value for money.

    Planning of the tour was faultless and everyone we met was friendly and helpful.

    I was very pleasantly surprised by the standard of the hotels. Every hotel provided kettles and tea/coffee in the rooms as well as excellent hot showers and wi-fi. There was a good cooked breakfast every day.

    The trip was really varied. History, hustle-bustle and huge potholes in the road in Kathmandu; tourist shops, beautiful mountain views and great activities in Pokhara (we did para-gliding & white water rafting); and a fabulous dug-out canoe trip down the river at Chitwan, plus a jeep and a walking safari.

    Loved it all!

    Classic Nepal tour

    Feb 10th 2020
    Lumle’s ‘Classic Nepal’ tour was an eye opening experience with a trip that outdid our expectations. From the word go’ the company responded quickly to all queries and the booking process was simple and well managed. The whole tour ran like clockwork from an excellent choice of flights with minimum changeover time at Dubai, being met and escorted to our hotel in Kathmandu and picked up each day by our guide for the week Gita who looked after us and answered all our questions.
    The hotels were well chosen in terms of their situation and of a higher standard than we had expected. The Nepalese are polite, helpful and always smiling, nothing is too much trouble, which in my case being garlic allergic meant that at the Chitwen National Park site included cooking me special portions so I did not lose out.
    Travelling long distances at times between towns was well organised in that there were always enough loo breaks and food stops, every 2-3 hours at well chosen sites with ‘Western loos’ not just squats! Our chosen driver did a brilliant job negotiating both the busy highways and the more uneven surfaces of local roads.
    Though the programme was packed full of tours with additional local guides it included ‘resting’ times so one never felt stretched to the limit and could enjoy times of rest and relaxation.
    A memorable highlight will always be the site of the ‘Fishtail’ peak in the Annapurna range from our bedroom window at Pokhara.
    With a myriad of places to eat nearby, food was never an issue and including beer never exceeded £10 a head.
    This was a marvellous trip and thanks to Lumle’s organisation and itinerary a memorable one in which we made new friends from our small group of 12 co-tourists.
    I look forward to booking my next trip with them and would not hesitate to recommend them – and compared to other companies their prices are non comparable – low on price but high on value. Can’t be beaten!
    5 stars isn’t enough!
