Holidays to Nepal has organized my tour properly and was personally taking care of everything especially when we were in need of any type of help. Hotels booked were very good especially Hotel Arts in Katmandu. Driver and the vehicles provided were very good. I am satisfied with my overall travel experience with Holidays to Nepal.
