“Mary, the CEO was great! She took very good care of us and kept the group together. Met some great people on the tour. Visited few communities on one of the days and it is great to see the local tradition as well as what G adventures are doing to help these communities. My trip also included the Lares trek which was guided by Jean Pierre who is a legend and his co assistant, Marco who was very friendly and helpful. They both made this trek memorable.”

“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.”
