From
US $2,720
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Reaching basecamp at Mount Everest on the Tibetan side Tips? It was a fabulous trip, but the pace was quite demanding. Probably the most important tip is to ensure that you take a few dry snacks with you. Importantly, if you don't like to drink a lot of water, bring something to put in it as we were having to drink three litres a day for hydration purposes at 17.000 ft. Local benefits? Yes to a degree. We stayed in Tibetan hotels and spent our money in local... (more)Shaun Casey

Memorable parts? Varanasi was amazing and provided a great stay. Tips? Just go for it, you will love it, whether you are used to traveling or not, everyone on our trip enjoyed it and wanted more. Local benefits? On the trip we used local guides, driver etc which supported jobs in the various towns and cities. Using public transport ie the trains helped us get to various places easily and economically. Overall rating? Amazing, a must do for everyone. The guide was... (more)Joanne Rogers

Memorable parts? So many great things its hard to choose one...flying over Mount Everest in a small plane, seeing sunrise over the Annapurnas, elephant safari in Chitwan Tips? Make sure you bring apropriate clothing eg colours of clothing in Chitwan so camaflourged in jungle Local benefits? We had 3 different local guides (all very good) in Katmandu, Pokhara & Chitwan. We were the only 2 people on our tour so we traveled everywhere by car provided by the tour company, not... (more)Helen Calder

Climbing to the top of the tiger's nest was really amazing, but honestly the whole trip was such an eye opener! I don't think I have experienced anything quite like it before! (more)Elsinore Alexander
Seeing sights such as Tigers Nest, the Potala Palace, and flights over Mount Everest. Visiting Tibet was a highlight. One of the greatest trips we've been on! Amazing sights, and a true learning experience. (more)Paul Rock
The whole trip was absolutely fantastic and very well organised. Some of my favourites were just about the whole of Bhutan, the sunrise from Sarangkot, Pokhara and lake Yamdrok in Tibet. (more)Eva

Nepal rebuilding volunteering & Annapurna trek
From
£1,066

Memorable parts? Impossible to choose one single part! Staying in Ratmate village and participating in house building was certainly memorable - whilst this was such a happy and welcoming community, it was both shocking and humbling to see first-hand the scale of earthquake damage in the region and the difficulties they face in re-establishing a good standard of accommodation there. All of the trekking was really enjoyable with perhaps the highlight being the very early morning trek to Poon... (more)Eimear Hannigan
Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan country tour
From
US $2,410

Memorable parts? Definitely the most intriguing country is Tibet: the faces of the people, the scenery, Lhasa, EBC. Tips? A visit to Pokhara in Nepal is worth the 7-8 hour drive only if you go trekking. Local benefits? The wise policies of Bhutan, with the fixed-fee daily rate for tourists (and the royalty supporting local culture, education and environment) make you feel that you are supporting local people ans sustainable tourism. Overall rating? A great vacation,... (more)Gaetano Guerreri

All of the vacation was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the train journey from Beijing to Lhasa. The visit to the nunnery was fun. There was nothing on my trip that I didn't enjoy so it's hard to choose 1 thing I enjoyed most. (more)Jules Palmer
Excellent....Go with an open mind, an attitude of adventure. It is a different country. You will not find the same facilities as at home. The food is different. But it's all part of the adventure. (more)Yoginee Patel
It was very memorable and exciting, and a good idea to go on a tour through a country that would be difficult to navigate alone. (more)Laura Tomlinson

Memorable parts? At the end of each day, I could've easily said "that was definitely the best day". Every day of the trip was memorable and exciting; from seeing Everest, to seeing wild rhino and elephant in the jungle. The feeling of being amongst the Nepalese culture and getting a really up close and authentic experience is something I am very grateful to have experienced. Our guide, Ram, was an especially wonderful part of the trip, he taught us a lot and made sure we had a fantastic... (more)Emma Newlyn

Memorable parts? The day at Chitwan National Park - canoe ride and jungle walk and the airplane ride over Everest Tips? This is quite a gruelling trip, not much time for relaxation so don't expect to come back refreshed!! Local benefits? We certainly contributed to the local economy through use of local guides and non-chain hotels. We tried as far as possible to eat local food. Not sure that we made any contribution whatsoever to reducing environmental impacts - there was... (more)Allison Bucknell

Memorable parts? We did it all during this vacation and enjoyed every minute! We toured Kathmandu; went river rafting; enjoyed scenic trekking; and visited Chitwan National Park where we took an elephant safari and got to wash elephants in the river. The tour operator did a fantastic job planning an active itinerary where we had lots of time for activity but also enough time to relax. I would not change a thing! Tips? Just let the good folks at Friendship Tours know what you want... (more)Courtney Stryker
