Thanks a lot for exciting helicopter tour to the Mt. Everest
CHIN TIN

Thanks a lot for exciting helicopter tour to the Mt. Everest. I was in Nepal at the last week of the November 2014 with my daughter. I had one business meeting so my visit was too short. My daughter was excited to see the Mt. Everest. I didn’t have any ideas what to do over there. Just I searched Google to visit Mt. Everest. I saw the best option one day Everest helicopter tour on Global Holidays Adventure official site. Immediately I emailed with my proposed. Within a minute I got a reply with detail information. The programmed was just for 4 hours but it was well designed and appreciated. I booked the tour. Next morning we left Kathmandu and flew to Mt Everest. We proceeded up the valley, flying above Everest base camp and landed at Kalapattar. We left the helicopter and enjoyed with beautiful mountain views, and some photos with Mt . Everest. What a lovely spot ! Then we flew to Hotel Everest View for our breakfast. It was bit far but spectacular views of Everest and Ama Dablam. I especially thanks to Mr. Surya who organized a wonderful trip with in a short period and our pilot who made us feel safe during the flight. The tour is bit expensive but I recommended if you are in Nepal for a short visit. And also recommended global holidays adventure who are very professional and courteous.

Motivated by tour cost and services

After comparing various companies I booked the helicopter through Global Holidays Adventure. I was motivated by tour cost and also found young guys are running this business very efficient. We were group of 3 members with my 12 years son and we all had a fantactic trip in Everest. I love Kalapattar where my dream was success and I was lively standing infront of world highest peak Mt. Everest. I would recommend this company to join your holidays in Nepal. The young guys are helpful and always smiling.

Amazing two weeks in Nepal !
JACEK and MARIA

A few days ago we came back from our unforgettable trip to Nepal. Our trip was organized by Global Holidays Adventure. We found them through google search and from the very first email exchange, first with Samsher and later with Surya, we were convinced that we picked the right company. Their responses were very quick and we were getting all the information we needed to make our itinerary perfect and unique. The whole trip Kathmandu/ Kathmandu Valley/- Pokhara - Chitwan was well organized, great guides, perfect hotel selections, everything was on time and done with smile. Nothing ever was a problem. The highlight of our trip was Helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp. Yes, it is pricey but worth every penny. Breathtaking panorama of Himalayan Peaks and landing on Kalapatar- in the heart of Himalayas - next to Lhotse with beautiful view of Mount Everest was truly dream come true . We had a great pilot plus Surya was flying with us and helping us to recognize all mountain peaks we were passing by. During our trip to Nepal we had contact with Samsher or Surya at all times, and we met with them few times during the trip. They were always ready to help us with any wishes we had. For the past 30 years we've traveled all over the world, dealt with many tour operators and companies in many countries but we've never met such nice and honest, very caring and detail oriented tour company owners like Samsher and Surya. We strongly recommend, and couldn't say enough great words about the work that they've done. It's not their job, it's their passion and they tailor to each client individually, but putting their heart to it. Guys, thank you very much for everything and see you in Nepal again.
