My wife and I recently used Thamel travels for our Nepal trip. The owner, Balaran, corresponded with us prior to the trip. He was prompt and informative and that's what made us chose him over other companies. On the day of arrival he picked us up himself. Throughout the trip, he constantly kept in contact with us to make sure... More

I booked Kathmandu-Pokhara tours for my family of 6 persons. When we arrived at mid night, our guide was waiting at the airport with our name. From the beginning till our last minute in Nepal, we were taken care of. Balaram, the owner, met us teh next morning and briefed the tour in details. We could not expect anything more.... More

I had a very good taste of Nepal during my 3-days tour with Balaram and its team. I strongly recommend them. Extremely helpful and careful. Don't waste time.

In Full Confidence I would highly recommend Thamel travels for great organization of any tours in Nepal. Balaram has great knowledge of the industry and high responsive to any quires or changes of itinerary. We really felt great value for money from our trip and in very safe hands with his employers. A huge thank you to rabin who was... More

A truly epic trip through Thamel Travel. Balaram couldn't be more helpful in organising our entire experience in Nepal. We originally booked a trek to Everest base camp which was seemless thanks to our trekking guide Rabin, a very polite, smart Nepalese guy who read our party perfectly. Rabin was very reassuring and calming once we started ascending into higher... More

In September/October I travelled with my wife and three children (age 11,13,16) through Nepal. We had a fantastic trip and enjoyed things like - Kathmandu city sites, Chitwan Elephant safaris, Pokhura hiking, zip lining, bungee jumping, paragliding and site seeing. We also trekked to Annapurna base camp. All our internal travel (flights, hotels, activities) were organised by Thamel Travels and... More

Balaram and his team at Thamel Travels made our 4 day stay in Kathmandu truly memorable. They organised everything for us - the hotel (the wonderful Shangri-La), a scenic flight along the Everest mountain range, a knowledgeable and informative guide Saru, driver and air conditioned car. All ran as smooth as clockwork - always on time, always professional. I can... More

From the moment we arrived at the airport to the moment we left, we were well looked after by this company. We only had 4 days in Nepal, so an itinerary was put together for us that included trekking, seeing city sights and cooking. It was all thoroughly enjoyable. A special mention has to be given to Dipess for helping... More

Myself and two friends used Thamel travel to organise our trip to Nepal and a trek up to Everest base camp. Upon arrival we were treated incredibly well, all of our hostels were organised and were exactly what we were looking for. We were picked up from the airport and guided and advised from the start. Thamel travel also provided... More

Thamel Travels & Tours was an excellent selection for our stay in Kathmandu, Nepal. Everyone within the organization was extremely punctual and attentive, and very concerned with the well-being and happiness of our group. If someone felt sick and needed to go home early, or if someone was having trouble with something, or if any problem arose, the tour guides... More
