We were visiting Nepal as part of a Habitat for Humanity build and Raya Tours organised a number of excursions for us both during and after the build. These included the Durbar Sq Kathmandu, Swayambhu (monkey temple), Kailashnath Mahadev Statue, Bhaktapur, trek to Namo Buddha, Panauti, cable car up Chandragiri Mountains, flight to see Everest, Pasupathi Nath and Bouddhanath. Our guide was really informative and gave us lots on insight into real life in Nepal. The trips were always in good transport with water provided, and meals were booked at excellent locations. This is my second trip to Kathmandu and using Raya Tours really enhanced the experience.
Raya Tours was recommended to me by Habitat for Humanity Nepal. They arranged a tour for some of our Global Village Team following our build both in Nepal and Bhutan. Easy to work with as we planned the tour and excellent service was provided during the tour. Our tour included an overnight trek and when someone sprained their ankle a couple days before the tour, Raya Tours made arrangements to get him to the village by 4 wheel drive vehicle so he could still enjoy the overnight, sunset, and sunrise with everyone else. They were also really amazing helping us handle another medical emergency. When leaving Bhutan, our flight back to Nepal was cancelled due to snow. Raya Tours was in constant contact with us and accommodated our change in plans with ease. In so many ways, they went above and beyond to take great care of us and provide us with an amazing experience!
What a wonderful time. Excellent guides and porters. Raya planned us the perfect taste of hiking through the Annapurna area. They booked everything for us and even had a massage booked for our tired bodies after the hike and it felt amazing. Perfect job by the team I was also with a habitat for humanity team and they did a wonderful day trip in ktm. Highly recommended.
