A1 did a great job organising our trek and tour to Chitwan National Park. Our trekking guide Rit,really did an outstanding job providing for all our needs and giving us information on the areas we visited.Shrawan was very helpful during the planning process. Raj and Kim met with us personally upon arrival at the hotel and made sure we were pleased on all aspects of our travel experience.

I travel a lot but this trip to Nepal with a group of 20 persons (Kathmandu, Pokhara, ABC Trek) - organized & accompanied by A1 - was one of my best journeys ever. And this was not only because of this wonderful country and it's specific spirit. The crew of A1 was so sincere, very professional, always ready to help,...

We had a 12 day trek to Everest Base Camp and it went so well! Everything from the pre-trip correspondance with A1 Excursions to our departure from Kathmandu was well cared for by Raj and his team. Prior to beginning our hike we were introduced to our guide for 12 days, Dorjee. Dorjee is truly a top-notch guide who stands out for his professionalism, experience and kindness. While EBC is do-able without a guide, we found that with Dorjee we were given insight into culture and landscape which we wouldn't know otherwise. We also found a peace in knowing that all the details were cared for, which allowed us to enjoy the trip all the more. Our trip was one that we will never forget, and I would recommend it to anybody. Thank you A1 for all that you do.

In March 2013 I was with a group of around 20 Germans and an equal amount of Nepali carriers hiking towards the Anapurna Base camp. The beauty of Nepal in terms of people, culture and its nature needs no description but I´m very sure that the team of A1 helped us significantly in every moment. Starting with the airport-pickup with the very nice and knowledgable Shankar, who helps you to settle in Kathmandu to adjust for some days, the pre-depature people at A1 who give superb day-tours in and around Kathmandu and prepare you with everything you need for your hike to the outstanding work of each carrier in the Himalayan mountains. 

And they are far more than that, because they don´t only carry your bags with a grim on their faces like we´ve seen it happening at various other tours that we met in the mountains. They did everything in a way, that your hike can develop all its beauty: They made you smile, when your legs are hurting, they were perfect navigators always knowing where everyone of the group was, they motivated you, when you saw that no matter how hard your day was, they even carried 20-30 kg more and marched on and they gave you all the service that you need. 

When this comes together with the top-class tour planning of A1, delicious meals that you looked forward to during the whole day and breathtaking stops and accomodations offside the beaten track, then this is a lifelong memory. 

This happened to me and I will be forever grateful to Raj and his team who made this experience unforgettable. And just to mention: I´m a very critical thinker and I usually do find factors to criticize, but here nothing was to criticize.
