We had a great time with our guide/driver Ravi who drove us to and from Nagarkot and Pokhara. We got to have some of the greater experiences of our life during that journey including some white water rafting and handgliding. We also enjoyed Balaram's company and hospitality in Kathmandu. While he was unable to give us a homestay experience due... More

We were extremely happy with our decision to go with Thamel Travel, appreciated the quick response from Balaram and they were obliging and easy to deal with. They ensured the tour met our interests and changed and tweaked the program accordingly. We booked with Thamel after cancelling a previous booking with a different company who after quote being confirmed weeks... More

My family (2 daughters aged 17 and 12) went to Kathmandu for touring and where we hiked for two days from Kathmandu to Nagarkot and took a van down to Bhaktapur. The owner of the company, Balaram, was prompt and very professional, making our visit easy and organised. They met us at our hotel and made sure of the itinerary,... More

I organized a trip to Bhutan with Thamel travels and tours and they proved to be very professional. Balaram the owner of the agency takes care of all the details himself, he is very professional and caring, speaks very good English and is always available to answer queries over chat. He arranged for my visa, booked the whole itinerary and... More

My friend and I used Balaram from Thamel Travel and Tours for a trip to Gosaikunda this November. We have used him several times before for hiking trips and bus tickets. He organized a jeep, sleeping bag, walking stick and everything else we needed for the trip. We had a porter with us and he was great. He was actually... More

Fantastic service from these guys. Belaram the owner,answered my emails promptly and with pertinent accurate information. I emailed a few tour companies and I can say many replies were neither prompt nor helpful in the most part. Belaram laid out a private car tour that covered the main attractions, we had not been to Nepal before and needed guidance as... More

My husband was on a baseball International trip to Kathmandu and Thamel Travels and Tours were terrific. First of all the driving was a mess and the bus drivers were experts. Second the information given at the tours was beyond anything I could expect. I was interested in art and the guides helped me see many art things including a... More

We are a family of four who hiked the 'Everest View Trek' from Lukla, and we spent two days in Kathmandu as well. Nepal was stunningly beautiful, and this trek is tops. From the starting point of Lukla we were swept away by the beauty of the Himalayas and the quaint and clean villages along the way, the path was... More

I had a great time experiencing the beauty of rural Nepal in my trek to ABC. As we ascended up north from foothills of the Himalayas, I could feel how I had been living inside a bubble all along. I can't ever forget the morning view of snow clad Annapurna going golden yellow with the kiss of the sun. The... More

Went to Nepal by myself and arranged a trekking tour to Ghorepani/Poon Hill with Thamel Tours and Travels, which I found via glowing reviews in TripAdvisor and boy did they deliver! Balaram, the owner, arranged everything to a tee, from Kathmandu to Pokhara and for the trek, guided by the masterful and ever-so-cheerful Raj, to Poon Hill, everything proceeded timely... More
