Nepal Holidays

Our Nepal stopover tours and family holidays are operated as private departures on dates of your choice. Our stopovers tours assume a minimum of two participants and our family holidays four. Our partnership with quality vendors ensures a comfortable holiday and a memorable experience. There are no join-ins or "pooling" once the tour starts. Trips involving overland journeys use 4WD Land Cruisers for small groups, and Toyota Coaster minibuses for larger groups. On groups of six and more, we provide qualified Nepalese tour leaders with excellent communication skills and a wealth of local knowledge. The tour leader makes a big contribution to making your Nepal experience smooth and memorable, accompanying you throughout your stay and acting as cultural interpreter and naturalist.
