Krishna our trekking guide was superb.He was an excellent source of information on the village and mountain peaks.He set a slow steady pace appropriate for seniors (age 69-70). A1 staffs were courteous and professional and we specially appreciated the personnal contact in morning and evenings while we were in Kathmandu.We were very well serviced and will recommend A1 Tours toany friends planning to visit Nepal. Thank you for a great adventure.

We did 14 days trekking in Langtang,starting from Syabrubesi and ending in Chisapani.It is really wild on the trekking roads,withour many tourists on the way.The landscape is different everywhere, each day was different regarding the trail.It was going up and down all the way except just one day of going down only. It is hard with altitude and the breathe and also it was snowing in Gosaikunda even in March.But the way,tea house and the people were so traditional so it was an unique experience. Also we were having RIT as our guide was taking care of us all the time, explaining many details on the road, about trees and flowers.Always there with both of us.

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.

On my trip to Nepal, I got in touch with A1, and I cannot stress enough how wonderful, reliable and professional they had been. Everything was absolutely perfect and well planned, thanks to their advisable guides around the clock with lots of heart and humor. No matter if you go for hiking, trekking, mountain climbing, excursions, I perfectly recommend A1 to check out. I’m looking forward to coming back very soon. Thank you so much for this awesome experience, particularly to Raj I made close friends with from day one.

This was my third time trekking in Nepal with A1. These guys are pro's and know exactly what they are doing! I always had lots of fun and felt right at home. Would do and will do again!

We went trekking for 12 days in the Annapurna nature reserve guided by A1 and their crew of guides and porters. It was an amazing experience. They took so good care of us, that I can only call it deep felt love from the bottom of their hearts. They were always aware of us and there if someone needed help or forgot some of their belongings at a tea house. They were great company for cards games and talks about Nepal and invited us to booze and dance on the Holi festival. Tears start coming down, when I think of what a wonderful time I've had in their company!

Thanks to Rajkuma and everyone at A1 for this breath taking trip through the Himalaya accompanied by love and kindness!

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.

 Last December I approached A1 if they could help visit places where I could see local shamanistic culture as I found a reference to shamanism on their website. It turned out that the owner had a good idea of local festivals and could arrange for me to see a shaman festival not too far away from Kathmandu. It turned out better than I expected and I experienced a whole evening, night and morning of drumming and dancing by dozens of local Tamang shamans. There were hundreds of people attending the event, but not a single tourist. Perfect for my photography!

"Ghoripani Poon Hill Trek, October 2011"

Charles and I had an absolutely fabulous time trekking. We would recommend A1 Excursion Tour and Travels to everyone.The management was totally professional and the guide and porter were so helpful.We were no spring chickens when we took this trek (54 and 72)but we always left safe.There were times when we needed to slow the pace and our guide understood that and made changes. Our trek was an adventure of a lifetime !

We were not really planning to have a trekking due to lack  of time.But since our plans have changed we booked a 5 days trekkig starting with the guide Dev. All the services were as good as possible in the mountains.It was a wonderful experience we had.Thanks a lot to Raj and to the team of A1.

It was one of the best treks in my life.My guide Dev has shown to me the wonderful landscape of Nepal.He has told me a lot about the mountains and the way of live of the people from Nepal.Nepal is a very rich country with the most friendliest people with a big natural heart and with an unforgetable nature, with a lot of watern birds. I will come back to see more about it.My best decision was to walk through this country with a guide.Because you see a lot more and there is one of the best guide. See you soon.

"Annapurna Circle (round) and ice lake trekking, October 2008"

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.

We have been very happy with the service that A1 have provided for us.Everything was very well organised from the office to our trekking guide Indra. We had a problem with Jacobs knee which meant we could not complete our trek.But Indra fixed all the problem very well with an invite to his hometown and family for festival time. We will highly recommend A1 and Indra!

 it was an amazing trip with A1. The guys were helping us a lot through the whole trek. They got a real good understanding of service, sometimes it was mystical, like one time we had a break a thought about getting a tea and Dev was just bringing me one :)

All the talks about Nepali culture, how the country is, how the nepali people live, what do they think... was very enlightened and i loved all of the A1 staff for some deep talks. Thank you Raj, Doje, Passang, Passang,... and all the others on our trip and especially A1 Excursions for making it a very memorable and fun trip.

We went in a seven(7) day trek to "Poon Hill" in the Annapurna Conservation Area, organised by Raj and his expert team of travel consultants. Not really being trekking types, Raj went through all the alternatives that would be within our capabilities, and tailor made a tour that was fantastic. A1 excursions organised our flights, accommodation, our guide and porter for our group of two travellers. Not only that, he stayed in contact with our guide every day to make sure that everything was progressing as expected. Our guide Asta was extremely attentive to our needs, very informative, and patient with many requests to wander off to have a look at the local villages and meet the local Nepalese. To be fair the trek itself was pretty difficult and tested us physically, but the satisfaction of completing it, and experiencing the many highlights along the way more than compensated. Staying in the "tea"houses on the various trails was a great experience, being able to meet and talk to fellow travellers, and eating simple local nepalese cuisine (including garlic soup) an enjoyable part as well. We have been so impressed that we are now converted and look forward to going back for the next adventure Raj may have in store for us.

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, prescient and very pleasant throughout the complete trek - no matter if it was the porters, the guide, the cook or the managing director! And it all came from heart. I highly recommend A1 Excursion!

In March we made the Anapurna trek with A1 Excursion for 11 days. It was an amazing trip with these awesome, friendly and helpful guys. They always looked for us and made our trip as comfortable as possible. They took care of us and served us like a mother :) Any time I come back to Nepal, I'll plan my excursion with A1 only for I felt so much in good hands. Every thing was very well organized and last not least the meals they prepared for us were each day another highlight. Thanks very very much to Raj and his team for this phenomenal time!

We had a great Manslu Trek and a few days around in Kathmandu and Nagarkot in March 2016 with this travel agency. Everything was well organized.They were really familiar and professional together. Befor we knew, that there could be a problem, they solved it ! I really recommend this agency. Great guide, great porters, great cook. And an overlooking chief of company, who cares for his guests.

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.

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.

This was my first trip to Nepal and the first time I did trekking in the mountains. From the Airport we had a perfectly organised trip.
First we had some days in Kathmandu to do a little sight seeing and to complete our equipment. We also got provided with sleepings bags and duffle bags for all our stuff.

After that we met our porters and started trekking around the Manaslu. We even had a own cook for our group of 16 people.

I'm still very impressed how the porters carried our heavy bags (up to 20kg) and every time we met them over the day they were always smiling. The Raj Thapa and the whole company tried (and succeded) to fulfill all of our wishes.

In the beginning I could not imagine to do such a trek again because it was really challenging. But after a great journey I really want to come again someday.

And I would to it definitivly with A1 Excursion Adventure!

P.S. After the trip we spent some more days in Kathmandu and Raj came every day to the hotel to provide us with tips for spending our time and doing some shopping. He knows where you get good quality and a fair price.
