Perfect holiday

The trip was perfect and well organized. The tour guides were excellent.At the end there were some last minute changes but Raj took care of everything in a very professional way. He even arranged a private transport from Pohkara to Chitwan whem it was not included. You should not look further just talk directly to Raj and he will take care of everything in your trip to Nepal.
