“Ace The Himalaya made our 14 day Everest Base Camp Trek an epic and beautiful adventure. Sure, taking on the Himalayas without a guide is a possibility but from start to finish Ace made the entire process seamless and incredibly enjoyable. The services included airport pickup and drop-off, hotel arrangements in Kathmandu, extra bag storage and all tea houses booked along the way. The Ace website provides detailed information on the trek as well as the gear required to make it all happen.

A travel company is only as good as its people, and this is where Ace truly excels. Our group knew how challenging a trip like this would be, but we had no idea how we would luck out with our top-tier guide, Laxmi. She was super knowledgeable, funny and despite her small frame, a strong and capable trekker. We honestly couldn't imagine having such an incredible time without her. Within a few days she became more than a guide and more like a bonus member of our trekking crew, and eventually, like a member of our family. Laxmi was our liaison for our interactions with the locals as well as dealing with ordering our food for each and every meal. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and well fed, and even took the time to play cards with us during the down time before going to sleep. She taught us Nepalese phrases, quoted exact heights and names of the mountains we encountered and never complained about our humor or repetitive questions. Laxmi was truly a gem.

The porters were also excellent. These small-framed young men were beasts on the trail. Carrying two bags each, they would arrive at our destination before us and have our bags ready in our rooms. They were efficient, trustworthy and had wonderful energy.

There are many trekking companies out there, but I can say with authority that Ace will not disappoint. Don't let the Thamel back alley office fool you - Prem and his team are in the upper echelon of trekking companies in Nepal. Highly recommended.”
