1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The 9 day trek round Annapurna Sanctuary has to be the highlight. This was made even more memorable by having the most amazing Sherpa guide and porter. They were knowledgeable and very friendly. However, the tour company made the whole trip memorable with their attention to detail and added value whilst opening our eyes to Nepalese culture and history.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Book it now and use this tour operator to organise it for you - you will not be disappointed. Ask for Gelbu to be your guide if trekking.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - local people were used as guide and porter. We stayed in lower star (3*) hotels which were more than adequate but ensured that the money stayed within the Nepalese economy rather than making international companies richer. The tour company use local drivers to taxi their clients around rather than running their own cars. Whilst on trek we were actively encouraged to use non-bottled water either from safe local sources or to purify it ourselves.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I cannot praise the company highly enough. Their attention to detail, value for money, ensuring that the client has the vacation of a lifetime whilst also maximising the benefits to the local people and environment is the best I have experienced. It really was the vacation of a lifetime and I can think of no criticisms.
