    Best Photography Tour in Nepal

     I thought the trip was a real adventure and fantastic!  Road works were in progress and we took longer to travel between places but those who flew definitely missed out on "the real experience".  The driver and guides were very helpful and informative and I felt sorry for the driver having to have such long days skillfully navigating traffic.

    We were lucky to see plenty of wildlife in Chitwan and it was rather special to have a rhino right beside the road.  Our guide in Chitwan was very knowledgeable and helpful and the accommodation was fantastic. It was great to experience the Cultural show. Our city guide in Kathmandu was also very knowledgeable and helpful, as was our main guide.

    Having 2 groups of 10 passengers was a great idea as we were able to get to know each other well and it was a good number for the guides/driver to handle.  It was unfortunate, though, that our main guide was not present at the farewell dinner.  I felt that the whole trip was organised well.

    I think it a great idea that we were able to see the sunrise over the Annapurna Range and the Everest flight was also great.
