I recently took a tour to the Mt Everest base camp using these guys and they were awesome. The employes met with me on the day off to make sure I had my documents ready before the flight up to Lukla, and my guide, Raj met me at my hotel and made sure everything was set for the adventure. We went during what is concidered the off season (mid-feb) which ended up being great. The weather was awesome and they guesthouses were not to crowded. We hit our goal and I crossed this off the bucket list. If you are from the States or Europe and looking at a hike in the Himalaya's as your next adventure give these guys a call. Good company to work with. A buddy ended up wanting to come with on the trip about a week before I left and they helped make it happen. As someone from the U.S. I wanted to use a guide and local company for the base camp hike and they ended up being great to work with.
Great trip with Nepal Lion! Response rate was fast, the Director, Shiva is contactable at all times during the trip via WhatsApp or Facebook for any queries. They even provided me with a local SIM card and guide assisted me to get data on the phone to stay connected. During the trip, guide was patient and safe. I fell sick on 2days and he was constantly checking if I was ok and was concerned when I didn't feel like eating. Very attentive and caring! After the trip, I was even treated to a local cultural dinner and given a certificate of completion. Definitely different from other tour operators.
I had a wonderful trip with Nepal Lion Tours. Shiva was in good contact before I came to Nepal to arrange everything. My guide for the trek, Pasang Lama Tamang was wonderful!!!!! He made sure I acclimitised safely and comfortably and took care of me so well at each tea house on the road. I had food allergies that he was really great about helping with. He also helped others along the way when they were not so lucky as me. It was an amazing trek - made even more amazing by Pasang.
