“The whole thing has been made excellent by the staff, the CEO, and the assistant guides. Prasan is a true leader with his selection of the assistant guides, training and supporting them, tight management when needed (e.g. the delay in flights), answering questions and setting our expectations... And with his short lessons he gave at nights to the group on Nepalese and Himalayan cultures, geography, history, etc... he is an asset not only to G Adventures but Nepalese tourism industry, too.”
