Amazing Family Tour in Nepal
Allen

We spend a great time in Nepal. Along with my family we visited round trip of Kathmandu, Pokhara, Lumbini and chitwan. I was recommended by one of my friend from Canada who had already visited mt. everest by helicopter with global holidays adventure. We booked our tour almost at the last hour and moved. When we meet Mr. Surya, he explain everything about our program. Next morning we flew to mt. Everest. It was awesome moment for my family because we were seeing Everest at first time by our eyes. Continuously we visited Kathmandu, Pokhara, Lumbini and Chitwan. During our visit we enjoyed by exploring many hindu temples, buddhist stupas, ancient palace, beautiful mountain views from pokhara, splendid lakes, historical places, cultural facts, friendly people, some wild animals in Chitwan national park etc. Mr. Arjun was our guide for the entire tour. He was professional and knowledgeable guide. Nothing was trouble and we enjoyed each moment in Nepal. Thank you once again to the team of global holidays adventure for organizing awesome trip in Nepal for my family. Of course I will recommended to my friends who are visiting to Nepal.
