Having a good memory with Vertex Holiday our representative drops you at the airport for your final departure.
My partner and I recently travelled to Nepal and Bhutan through Vertex Holiday Trekking and had the most amazing experience. The tour was customized to suit exactly what we wanted to do and see. We explored Kathmandu & Pokhara, had a scenic flight past Mt Everest Trekked to Poon Hill for incredible views of the Annapurna range in the Himalayas, safari in Chitwan National Park, Trekked to Tiger Nest monastery in Bhutan to name a few. Amrit was absolutely fantastic in organizing everything and our whole trip ran flawlessly. Amrit checked in with us along the way to make sure there were no issues. We had different guides/drivers along the way, Ramesh and Hari our guides and Dipak our driver in Kathmandu showed us everything there is to see, We were also lucky enough to have Ramesh as our trekking guide for 5 days, they looked after us extremely well and made sure we had everything we needed along the trek, and finally, Sonam and Thinley in Bhutan showed us how amazing their country is. All of the staff from Vertex Holiday that we met along the way were outstanding, genuinely nice people, super friendly and very very knowledgable in their respective areas. I highly recommend Vertex Holiday Trekking to anyone considering visiting these beautiful countries. They made our wellbeing their number one priority and we are already dreaming of our next trip back!! We will definitely be going through Vertex Holiday Trekking next time.
