Four of us recently completed a trek to Everest Base Camp with Thamel Tours. On arriving in Kathmandu we had 1 week before beginning the trek. Having brought US$ with us to pay for the trek we met up with Balaram to hand cash over rather than having to look after it for a week. The night before flying out... More

Balaram, the owner of Thamel Travels and Tours, is great. He is very patient and responsive. First time for me and my teenager daughter in Nepal and I only have 2 nights in Kathmandu. Balaram recommended private Kathmandu City Tour and a 2 days 1 night sightseeing/walking tour to Nagarot. In addition, I also booked the Everest Mountain Flight with... More

Having spent an amazing time in Nepal (Kathmandu, Pokhara, Poon Hill Trek, Chitwan) during February 2016, being very well looked after by Balaram and Saru of Thamel Travel and Tours in Kathmandu, I knew that I couldn't trust anyone else to help me plan my trip to Bhutan. Balaram arranged everything with the tour company in Bhutan, and as a... More

This is the first trip to Nepal for my family. Like many other travelers, I was very careful and cautious on choosing the right tour agent to make this trip memorably good. Through Trip Advisor, I found Thamel Travels and Tours and started to email to them for an itinerary for 7 days. Balaram replied very quickly (and I found... More

My wife and I were booked on a package tour to Nepal that was cancelled, so we bought an air ticket and reached out to Thamel travels because of their high rating (the highest rated one seemed to focus on treks). Balaram replied quickly, positively and completely to match a route similar to the tour we had looked at: 11... More

Balaram and his entire team were really helpful during the 6 days we were in Nepal. He managed to get us cheap rates for all the activities we were interested in and organized them professionally. We will definitely book with them again if we ever visit this beautiful country.

Great people doing their best to make you comfortable. Balaram, the owner is a very sincere guy organizing every detail. We had a private car and a driver. Very fast but secure travel to Pokhara, Chitwan and back to Katmandu. Local guides were also very good. Elephant back safari was very exciting so bath at the river with the elephant.... More

Our trek to Everest Base Camp, stated with a crazy suggestion from my high school girlfriend to my adventurous husband. Once we decided that it was going to be reality for our two families of 5 (kids aged 10,12,13,14,15,16), we began to research a few of the top rated Trip Advisor suggestions. Thamel Travel responded first and was very accommodating.... More

Glenni & I had been dreaming of a trekking holiday in Nepal. Our daughter, son-in-law, & 3 grandkids decided to trek to EBC. We contacted Thamel Travel, rated #2 in Kathmandu, to arrange some of our trip. The owner, Mr. Balaram, responded quickly but with warmth, to our emails. I recommended Thamel Travel to our daughter, her family, & their... More
