Comments by :Dr.Ha, Christine Vu and team, from USA, Nepal Bhutan tour Oct 2008

Dear Rajan
Thank you for a memorable Nepal-Bhutan tour. The stay at Temple Tiger resort (our 2nd time) in Chitwan was fantastic.Bhutan Tour Everyone in our group enjoyed the Elephant back safari, the nature walks and not to forget the great food at the resort!!
(The picture above is the group of 11 people from USA Dr. Ha and team at Dha Chu la pass Bhutan with Rajan October 17, '08)
Dwarika's Hotel was quite an experience. It is no wonder that it was given the World Heritage Site award. Thank you for using this hotel to show us Nepalese culture and history in its splendor.
Bhutan is deservingly called the last shangri la on earth.What a great country!! We not only enjoyed the sites you showed us but the people you selected to drive and guide us. The driver and the guide were both so helpful. Tops, our guide was so knowledgeable and caring , always smiling even after having to look after 7 senior citizens riding up and trekking down Tiger Nest!!! We wish we had planned more days in Bhutan .Maybe another visit in the near future!
This is a second trip with Earthbound Expeditions for 5 of us in the group and we all would love the take another one with Earthbound. Another BIG thank you for your care from all 11 of us senior citizens from California!
Regards

Comments by: Dag Norling and team, Oslo about Mustang Trek , Oct 2008

Dear Rajan,
We want to thank you and the whole Earthbound Expeditions team for making our Mustang-trek a most memorable event. It has really been an adventure for lifetime!!

From the first e-mail contact we had, you made a most convincing impression. All our wishes concerning itinerary were promptly answered and we never had any doubt that the arrangement were in the best possible professional hands. The impression was only confirmed during our trek, from the day you met us with flower-garlands in the airport and till we left after three fantastic weeks with white khatas around the neck.
Mustang, the steep dry hills, the giant White Mountains, the friendly and proud people, the villages, monasteries and ancient Buddhist culture has made a deep and lasting impression.
For some of our group of six, average age 63, some days could be a bit longer and steeper than we expected, but the encouraging and cheerful Earthbound-crew kept our spirit high. When we needed support they always had a helping hand. The trek crew Dibash, Gokul, Gombu, Dawa, Nima, Kumar and Shankar all became our very good friends.

Again, thank you Rajan,
Best regards,

Comments by: Thanh, Mai and team, USA about India - Nepal tour , Oct 2008

Dear Rajan,
I hope all is well with you and your family. Time has gone by so quickly and I can not believe that it has been almost three weeks since we got back from the India - Nepal trip. It is fall season here in the US, cold, dark, rainy and windy. We missed the warm weather and funs in Nepal and India. Thank you for your well organized 12 days tour, so we have a chance to visit Taj Mahal, Buddha Holy Places and a wonderful views of Himalaya Mountain range at Nagarkot. We all are very impressed with your services. It is a very memorable trip. Look forward to the next trip with your company to Tibet. I will pass your company name to our friends. Just like my brother in-law, Dr. Trung recommed us with Earthbound Expeditions. I have attached photos of our group, we dressed up like the Napalese' saree.
P.S. - Catharine Pham is an travel agent. I will give her your email address and will be contacting with you.
Take care and please keep in touch.

Comments by: Meira Blaschkei and team about Nepal Everest trek ,Sept 2008

I would highly recommend Earthbound Expeditions over and over again. Our Everest Base Camp trek was completely taken care of from the flight to Kathmandu, to excellent teahouse accommodations, meals, and a wonderful, caring, knowledgeable guide. Rajan is completely trustworthy and went above and beyond promptly answering any queries we may have had about such an adventure. Another positive was the package was offered at a competitive price. I think it would be foolish not to try out Earthbound Expeditions for a life enhancing adventure.

Comments by: Giulia Tonini and team about Nepal Tilicho trek , August 2008

Me and my boyfriend went in Nepal for a trekking on Annapurna region in August 2008. We contacted Earthbound Expeditions from Italy. They were very accomodating toward our need and request. We wanted to try a nonconventional trek (Tilicho Lake, tea house trekking) and we found them really prepared. They took care of us from airport pick up to whole trip. Our guide (SUdip) and porter (Gokul) were both very prepared. Always nice and careful. They were able to understand how we were feeling just looking at us. They knew every single stone of the path we were walking on. We had always good accomodations. The accomodation in Kathmandu was also very good (Samsara Hotel). Rajan, chief of Earthbound Expeditions, took us to a restaurant for a typical Nepalese cultural show in the evening. He was really very kind, hospitality was great! We really recommend Earthbound Expeditions for any trip ...

All the best, Giulia Tonini and team from Italy : t_giulia@hotmail.com

Comments by: Uwe, Christine and family about Nepal and India tour, March 2008

Dear Rajan,
India TourNamaste!
Sorry for the late reply but we had a lot of work waiting for us after our holiday.
First of all thank you again for a fascinating and well organised holiday in Nepal and India with my family. It's unbelievable how many things we saw in such a short time. Historical places, stunning views of the Himalayas, temples, wildlife.... well, I guess we have to come again and spend more time....
My favourite places were Bhaktapur and Jaipur (I loved that old hotel in Jaipur...).
The kids loved the safari and wanted to spend a week there instead of visiting temples.....
well I guess we had a bit of everything which made this trip enoyable for the whole family.
Please find attached a few fotos. Christine took about 3000 pictures and I showed them to family and friends back in Germany last week......it's good to have all those fotos so we can remember everything.....
Ok, so much for now, hope we can come again..... Hiking in the himalayas or maybe a trip to Bhutan or Tibet, let's see....

All the best, Uwe, Christine and family - Germany

Comments by: Jili and Tiffeny about Nepal and India -12 days tour, Jan 2008

Rajan,
We did enjoy the India Nepal tour very much, and I have to say if not becauOur Guest with Sadhuse of the sincere service from you and everyone in Earthbound, the experience would have been different but not better! I have shown my friends and family our interesting photos and they all loved it! And they are so amazed that we have found such a trusting and sincere company to take care of us so well! Many thanks again and hope we will meet in the future:)
Picture here Tiffeny and Jinli with Sadhus in Pashupatinath Kathmandu Nepal.
Kind regards, Jinli from China

So sorry Rajan, I've been meaning to write to you but as you can imagine, once I got back home, I've just been swamped.
The Tibet part of the trip was challenging in terms of the cold and altitude, and many times I did wonder what I was doing in Tibet in winter ? But I did meet many wonderful and caring fellow travel companions and the sights and beauty of Tibet more than made up for it.
Of the three places India, Nepal and Tibet, Nepal remains my favourite, and I just can't help raving about it to my friends.
I've also recommended Earthbound to all of them, saying that they must travel with you if they intend to visit that part of the world. Your service from the initial point of contact to the moment we departed (and beyond) was truly amazing and faultless. We really couldn't have asked for a more caring and helpful company to have travelled with. Thank you so very very much! Needless to say, if I ever return to India or Nepal, I would contact you again for sure!
In the meantime, I have attached a few photos of our trip so you can visit what a wonderful time we had! Please take care. Hopefully we'll see you again in the future.
Warmest Regards,
Tiffany from Singapore living in USA now, booked tour via internet

Dear Rajan
Thanks for this wonderful 3 country tour. Actualy, this was not just a trip, this was an incredible journey and a chance to know more about amazing and differents cultures, people and countries.
India is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you only feel in that Place. Is impossible to describe with words incredible places like the Taj Mahal or the "Pink City" in Jaipur.
China has so many places to visit; the cities that you choose for us was a highlight of that culture: the lovely Pandas in Chengdu, the historic Terracota Warrios of Xi'an, and the endless neauty of Beijing.
Nepal was great - Nice people, beutiful landscapes and amazing country waiting to be discover. We felt Nepal like our second home - paceful place, friendly people and of course your special support and friendship.
Also, we would like to thanks to all your tour team in India, Nepal and China - nice guys, friendly, very professional attitude; we always feel good because all of you take a special care of us. Really thanks,special to you... We really hope to return some day...
Best Regards from Chile, the other side of the World...

Comments by: Terry, Brian and team about Nepal and Bhutan tour, March 2008

Namaste Rajan,
Greetings from Australia!
After arriving home last Bhutan Tour TrekkingTuesday and then our son arriving from London on Friday, we are now starting to settle down after our fantastic trip to Nepal and Bhutan.
I would like on behalf of Peter and Robyn and Brian and myself to offer you our sincere appreciation for the arrangements you made for our trip to Bhutan and Nepal.
We were very impressed with how smooth it ran, all our arrangements such as airport and hotel pickups, accommodation, guides, visa to Bhutan etc went like clockwork. All hotels were great, I must note here that the service, helpfulness and friendliness of all the staff at Samsara Resort in Nepal was much appreciated. It is a great centrally located hotel - ideal for the purchase of gifts at great prices!!
All your drivers were excellent, from the city drivers to the drivers who took us to Nagarkot, Pokhara and Chitwan, Bhutan. A special thank you to our driver who took us to Chitwan and Pokarha, he was an excellent .
We appreciate your care and contact during our trip which led to us having a feeling of confidence and security in an unknown territory.
Rajan you run an efficient friendly operation and you are to be congratulated! We all would be more than delighted to recommend your service to any prospective travel to either Nepal or Bhutan. We can be contacted by email at terry.norman@optusnet.com.au or telephone (+61 2 95401722).
Kind regards
Terry Norman, (on behalf of Brian, Robyn and Peter)

Hi Rajan,
Both Terry & I were really delighted that your organisational abilities throughout Nepal and Bhutan including Chitwan National Park worked out so well.
Robyn & Peter also felt the same sense of relaxed travelling experiences in Nepal and Bhutan, for all of us was a really enjoyable and exciting time. We also like thank to "Penjor" our guide in Bhutan for the outstanding time he offered us recently in his home Bhutan. Peter, Robyn, Terry and myself still are talking about the walk up to the Tigers Nest Monastery just as it started to snow--just magnificent scenery and such a peaceful place.
We are more than happy to have you use us as a references for future potential travellers to Nepal and Bhutan tour so please don't hesitate to pass on our email details. The simple fact is that without local knowledge a trip with limited time restraints could easily be disrupted with changing weather conditions etc- so thanks again for sorting out Chitwan National Park--it really was terrific stuff. Thanks again Rajan and I will also send photos to Mariana and Veronica.
Best regards
