    Kathmandu, ABC, Chitwan, and back!

    I have no complaints with the trip. Suman provided a well planned tour and I rarely do tours. I did sight seeing in Kathmandu and had the pleasure to do ABC trek with Shyam (Sam) our guide who was excellent. Took care of many things for me and was very fun to hang out with. I cant forget Shitaram, our porter who was quiet but he carried most of our stuff. By the end of the trip I got to know them personally, sharing family photos and talking about a variety of things. The team also understood my dietary restrictions which are many and catered to that.
    Chitwan was fine. The jungle safari was decent. Not the fault of the tour group, but I just did safaris that were way better in other places and I had different expectations.
    Again, everything was set up, got the proper food and activities.
    Upon returning to Kathmandu I had Suman do a personal tour for me as I wanted to check out street art in the city. What did he do? I turned out when I walked out of my hotel, Sam was my driver! My guide to ABC. NICE SURPRISE! Got to hang out with Sam for a few hours and requested him to take me to the airport.
    No complaints here. We did have an issue with a plane ticket from Pokhara to Chitwan but when we called Suman it was fixed immediately.
    I would recommend This tour group to anyone. I was happy with everything.
    I also did my own research about gluten free food and shared it with Suman, so if you have issues like me, he is more knowledgeable now. ;)
