Everest Mini Trek - Enjoyed Ourselves Immensely
From the very first email Hari was very helpful and professional- basically arranging our Everest mini trek exactly how we wanted it- the departure date destination, timing etc. Then when we changed some of our plans at the last minute, Hari was able to sort everything out very efficiently, including mode of transport and hotel accommodation in Kathmandu the trek itself went very well and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We were well looked after and Sabin is an excellent guide, I would have no hesitation in recommending Life Dream Adventure to anyone. If I come back to Nepal I'll defiantly book with them again.
Thanks for everything
