Actual and smart trek guide
I had never been trekking before so I was apprehensive about visiting Nepal. Upon meeting Santosh I quickly relaxed and realized that I was in safe hands as Santosh was friendly, had sound English, great local knowledge, and was an experienced trekking guide. Santosh always thinks of his customers first and therefore he was very flexible with his plans in order to accommodate our needs. I really enjoyed doing to Annapurna Base Camp Trek as Santosh was always lively and upbeat and was easy to have a laugh with. Santosh made our trip to Nepal incredibly easy because after we returned from trekking, he was able to suggest and take us to places of interest. I am so glad we had Santosh as a guide, without him we would have never have been able to gain the local knowledge and experience Nepal’s rich culture without him. Thank you, Santosh!!
Best freelance tour guide
Visiting Nepal for the first time was a great experience and having never trekked before I had no idea what to expect. I was lucky enough to have Santosh as a guide because he is an experienced trekking guide who has experience in the tourist trade and speaks very good English. My girlfriend and I did the Annapurna trek over a 10 day period and could not have chosen a better guide than Santosh. He was very friendly and made us feel welcome by showing us the local culture and recommending the best food to eat whilst trekking and in Kathmandu and Pokhara. When I come back to Nepal in the future Santosh will be the only guide that I want to have whilst trekking.
Incredible experience and tremendous memories!
I had the chance to discover the Annapurna Base Camp trek with Santosh as a guide. Thanks to him, I could discover the beauty of the nature, the energy of the people and the flavors of the culture, from Kathmandu to the Annapurna Base Camp. I would totally recommand him for his ability to share his love for Nepal and to bring his traditions and stories to us. I had an incredible experience and tremendous memories will remain for a very long time. See you soon, sathi Daju vai feri betaula.
Bas & Margreet
Great trekking Experience with Santosh!2013
Santosh has been recommended to us by friends and we are happy that we followed their recommendation! In October 2013, he organized 10 days trekking to the Annapurna region for us, which was great! Everything was well organized and right from the moment, we arrived in Kathmandu. He took care of us as a friend and invited us to his family to join in the Dasain festival celebrations and get a great feel for Nepali village life. Santosh knows a lot about all the different cultures and religions in Nepal and his English is excellent, which makes it very easy to communicate. He and his friend, our porter Ramesh, took good care of us during the trekking and were good company to drink a rum or beer within the evenings. When required, he changed the program when we were too tired or it was raining, always continuing to motivate us to reach base camp. He even went ahead to ensure that we would have room to sleep in, which is quite a challenge during the busy touristic season as we have seen many tourists sleeping on tables and in the kitchen. We would recommend Santosh to anyone traveling to Nepal!!
Annapurna Base Camp Trek2017
This was my first time I was traveling alone, and in the case of Asia it was my first time, I was worried a little bit cause I was alone but when I met Santosh I did not feel alone he helped me all the time, as a guardian in the family, he is so kind. Thank you so much Santosh for your kind behavior to me, we went trekking in the Annapurna Region, it was so nice to be there because the view was really close and wonderful from base camp and from Ghorepani. I felt like I was on a different planet. I was not expecting many services in the mountain but it was different really I had a good hotel, good food, the view, people, it was just so nice to be there with my guide Santosh. So i must say that Santosh and his services were better than big trekking companies because I saw some trekkers from a big company but the services were not as good as Santosh’s, I am really happy to meet him, if you go trek with him nothing to think just do it, open your eyes and enjoy. I am sure i will be back as soon as possible for the next trek because there are many interesting trekking routes, I would love that. Thanks, Santu keep your work like this, I wish you all the best for your work, see you Emmanuelle,
