We were four couples and wanted to do a tour in Nepal which brings us closer to nature and wildlife. After a long discussion, we choose a tour called Experience Nepal Tour which lasted for 8 days and covered most of the tourist destinations of Nepal like Nagarkot, Lumbini, Pokhara, Chitwan and Kathmandu. Tour went well and we enjoyed a lot especially in Chitwan where we went for Jungle Safari. Elephant ride and wildlife watching was the best part of our whole trip. Lumbini and Pokhara was also a nice experience. All of us enjoyed this trip and we highly recommend it to everyone. We are thankful to Soulful Nepal team.
I did my tour with Ida and team. The whole trip was a very good experience. Nepali food is worth tasting. The tour was well-organized and our tour leader, Dhurba was very kind and helpful. He knows a lot about everything that came across our tour, I renamed him as “google” 😀
