Testimonials

  • 12.11.14 11:21Dear Tilak,

    Namaste,

    Sorry for not being able to send you this message earlier.

    Upon returning home after 3-weeks in Nepal, getting adjusted to the old routine and catching up with lots of pending work at home, I am sending you our thanks on behalf of my group and myself, for an excellent Annapurna BC trek and Chitwan trips that were organized by yourself and your Company in Oct 2014.

    We would like to thank you in person and to all Nepal Trailblazer team, including our guide Lok and all the porters, who provided us great support and security during our activities in Nepal. We had a wonderful trekking experience in Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, enabling us to visit Annapurna BC and a memorable visit to Chitwan, in Nepal, with your skillful organizing.

    I will repeat our same remarks and recommendation for Nepal Trailblazer in Tripadvisor, as well.

    We look forward to have future trekking and climbing trips to Nepal, in year 2015 and expect to have Nepal Traiblazer Organization again.

    Best wishes,

    Taner UYSAL

  • 04.11.14 10:58Dear Bhairam, dear Nepal Trailblazer Trekking colleagues,

    What a great holiday we had indeed.

    Everything was perfectly organized, from the pick up at the airport, till the drop-off.

    we never had to wait for taxi, guide, plane or whatsoever, this was organization at top level.

    As a travel agent I can certainly recommend your company to anyone of my colleagues or travelers planning a trip to your beautiful country.

    Catherine and I would especially like to thank Raghu and Isan, our very friendly guide and porter.

    Raghu Dahal was and is one of a kind. He is what you may call a perfect guide, kind, very watchfull and always thinking ahead.

    We may not forget to mention the knowledge of our professor-guide in Kathmandu either, his knowledge of the city and country was quite impressive as well.

    Just a small remark on the last day of the trekking program maybe.

    Waking up at 4.30h and climb to Poon Hill and back to Nayapul all in one day, is just far too heavy as a program and not be recommended.

    We know, our schedule was tight but without help from Raghu it would have been almost impossible.

    We feel lucky we have chosen your agency overall and will recommend of course your company on tripadvisor as well.

    Thank you Bhairam for the perfect organization, to our super guides and porter, and to all the drivers who made driving in Nepal look easy.

    We will be back,

    Catherine and Marc

  • 02.12.13 17:15Good Morning Bhairam,

    We wanted to write to you to once again thank you very much for arranging a wonderful trek and experience for us in Nepal. The entire trip was professionally organised without fault.

    I would also like to inform you of the very high standard of customer service provided to us by both Raghu and Vim. At all times during the trek they were attentive, professional, punctual and always looking out for us to secure good accommodation and to ensure that we were comfortable. Please pass on our many thanks and high praise to both gentlemen.

    Thank you very much Bhairam. We will recommend Nepal Trailblazer Trekking to any friends or family travelling to Nepal.

    All the best,

  • 28.07.13 15:37Dear Tilak,
    Again it was a fantastic travel for me. This third time, I was in Nepal with my two cousins for 1 month. And we have done, seen and heard so much and we enjoyed all of it. We have been trekking to Poon Hill, to see the most famous sunset of the world. We continued our trekking to that amazing spot: Annapurna Base Camp. Before and after our trekking we visited Pokhara and his highlights. We had a home-stay on the countryside of Tansen, which was so lovely and showed us the live of Nepal people living there. We have seen the birthplace of Buddha: Lumbini with all those stupas and temples from all over the world. Thereafter we went to Chitwan. Again very special experiences: sitting on the back of an elephant spotting the rhinos; sitting in a canoe spotting birds and crocodiles.

    All that time we were guided by that fantastic guide: Tirtha Man Lama. He was always on our site. A real member of our team. Giving support when needed. Explaining what we must know about the mountains, the nature, the jungle, the culture, the living of the Nepali people we met. Looking for the best places to stay, to eat, to walk. And last but not least: arranged everything everywhere. And always looking for what was the best for us, so there was nothing to worry about for us. When we returned to Kathmandu we had to say farewell to him and we call him: my friend. So we were pleasantly surprised when we met him again as a guide on a trekking to Matatirtha and Chandra Giri Hill in the southern hills around Kathmandu.

    Together with you, Tilak, we had a sightseeing trip in Kathmandu. We felt very honored that you take your time to guide us by yourself along all those beautiful and interesting places in Kathmandu. And about our stay in Kathmandu I can be short: it was an unique experience and I appreciate it greatly what you did for us.

    So, I want to thank you, Tilak, and your family for hospitality we received.

    Finally I want to say that I am very satisfied with your company and your staff and I will tell all my friends in Holland to contact you if they plan to go to Nepal. Myself I am quite sure I will travel back to Nepal in the future.
