- Everest Trek with Nepal Dream Path United Kingdom Email: firstname.lastname@example.org This is the second year that we've used DP/Nepal Dream Path to organize our Nepalese holiday. We were unfortunate to get caught in the earthquake the first time, but couldn’t have asked to have been in better hands. DP did all he could to ensure that we were safe and as comfortable as possible, and always involved us in decisions. So I would like to travel to Nepal again with Dp and Nepal dream path treks in coming year.dp is the best guide i had met
Excellent Trip to Everest Base Camp Clayton Stevens, Germany
My wife and I freshly concluded a 12 day trek to Everest Base Camp through Nepal Dream Path Treks.Firstly, we are confused and did not know how to trust Nepal Dream Path Treks but when we inquire them they gave us the best package and rate and guide us from the first mail till the departure. Nepal Dream Path Treks respond our mail as quickly as they can and also came to the airport to meet us and we had a great time with Nepal Dream Path Treks. Everything went what we had planned and our guide could not have better than him. Guide was very experienced and treat us very friendly took care of us. They also provided us a gear in reasonable price with discounts. In nutshell, the team of Nepal Dream Path Treks was awesome and friendly as well as knowledgeable. I will recommend Nepal Dream Path Treks if you are going for the trek in Nepal.
