Overall, it was an excellent trek. Dev took really good care of us at all times and I think some of the people we met along the way were jealous he was our guide! The accommodation and meals were always taken care of and we had a great trip. We saw many great sights and enjoyed many experiences which will last a lifetime. We also feel a great sense of achievement having completed the trek and could not have done it without all the help we received from A1. I will definitely recommend A1 Excursion tours.
Our guide Rabin did an excellent job the whole 13 days trek was well planned and we were happy to be able to enjoy the himalaya and the spectacular countryside and mountains with the everyday details taken care of smoothly.Robin was able to explain and point out many of the things along the way and at the same time gave us the plenty of space to discover this amazing country on our own.He called us Mama and Papa which made us feel like family. A great experience.

Looking for a reliable travel agency that will take care of our trek to the Evetest Base Camp we approached several agencies in Kathmandu. While getting proposals back from the agencies, Excursion A1 managed and owned by Raj Kumar was the most responsive and reliable that answered all our endless questions very professionally and patiently. Trusting Raj, we chose Excursion A1 and it appeared to be a very good choice. The trek was very well organized from day one when we landed in Kathmandu until the last day when we took off back home. This includes, 17 days in the mountains with great guide and porter, warm sleeping bags and coats that we rented, and professional care along all the trek. Pasang our Sherpa guide was extremely sensitive concerning the AMS altitude mountain sickness, looking always for our safety. Eventually due to the detailed planning and the acclimatization time we succeeded to reach all of the peaks that we were planning , including the Cho La pass which is not obvious. (we met more than few trekkers along the way that could not).
Thanks to Raj and his team our trek to the EBC was unforgettable. We ended up with a very nice traditional Nepali dinner that Raj invited us in our last night. Great agency great people highly recommended.
