Me and my wife booked this trip with our nephew. We were recommended Apex by a friend of ours and we were ecstatic with how good everything turned out! From the booking process to every other part of the trip they were 5 stars! Pramod was our guide and he was everything we were looking for and more! The trip was incredible, the most beautiful views we have ever seen and we were very well taken care of! We felt very safe and in very capable hands. We will definitely use Apex again if we decide to do another trek and will always recommend them to our friends and family. It was a trip of a lifetime!!
Operator's comment: Thank You So Much For Your Lovely Words, Talin.
I can't thank Gyanu, Ramesh and the Apex team enough for their organisation and help on our recent trip to Nepal. We have used Apex on a number of occasions now and will be using them again in the future. Our entire trip was so well priced, much cheaper than the "big" tour companies, as they keep everything in house and by the locals. Right from my first message to our good friend Gyanu, he was responsive and helpful to all of our questions and requests. The benefit of using Apex, and in particular Gyanu as a guide, is his experience in the industry, and the network of contacts that he has available to him in all trekking regions. We were nearly stuck at Lulka with bad weather, but through Gyanu's network we were able to get out of the area in a helicopter. He was able to organise this at a much cheaper rate than others were paying, and with 30 or more people trying to leave, we were the first ones out thanks to Gyanu. Others weren't so lucky and had to stay over for another night while we made it back to Kathmandu. Apex were very punctual, always on time, or early, with vehicles and drivers for airport transfers and sight seeing around the city. We can't recommend the Apex team highly enough for anyone wanting fantastic service at the right price. Thanks again and we'll see you all again soon hopefully.
Operator's comment: Thank you so much, Graeme! We're grateful and appreciate you for taking the time to share your experience with us.
We have been trekking with Gyanu in April 2022 and we went poon hill trek combined with Annapurna BAse Camp. I have to say it was pretty impressive experience and Gyanu has been our trusted experience director. He knows his country, people, culture, heritage and has extensive experience with mountains but also with working with different sorts of people. Also the organization in general was quite good. As a matter of fact I would recommend going with him to anyone who asks. Even ordinary trek can be extraordinary if completed with correct people. Gyanu is definitely one of those people.
Operator's comment: Thank you so much for your sweet words Samuel.
I did a 13 day trek round the Annapurna Circuit with Apex the Asia and can't speak highly enough about them. Ramesh dealt with the booking and was very professional, he tailored the trip around the dates I needed and I was able to hire some equipment from them to save buying it myself. I was lucky enough to have Gyanu as my guide and he is excellent, if you do any trek in Nepal you have to go with Gyanu! He has so much experience and knowledge about the area and during the trek I learnt so much from him about Nepal. His experience is shown by the amount of people we met on the trek who he knew, from other guides/porters to guesthouse owners, and it was obvious the amount of respect that everybody had for him. He was constantly looking out for me, making sure I was OK, and his level of care went way above what I expected. Above all he is the most friendly and warm person, it was a pleasure to spend 13 days in his company! Thanks Gyanu (and Ramesh), I will see you next time I am back in Nepal!

I had a great and wonderful experience. Apex are professional and friendly in their work. I recommend joining them if your looking for a Himalayan adventure.
Operator's comment: Thank you so much, Fahad for your review.
Thank you all at Apex for an amazing trip. I traveled with a friend. We had planned the trip for several months in advance and Ramesh was very kind to help us organize the trip, recommending places to visit and also arranging things in order to help us get to the specific destinations we wanted to go. One of my flights got cancelled and I arrived one day late. Everything was adjusted so we could still do all of the activities and make up for lost time. Rajesh our tour guide was amazing, explaining every detail of the historical landmarks, traditions and temples. We had a splendid time. We also enjoyed the opportunity to taste true Nepalese food and purchase spices, with the help and detailed recommendations of our amazing guides. Thank you very much. I will definitely contact you guys for my future trips to Nepal, which I hope come very soon! धन्यवाद
Operator's comment: Morecla, thank you so much for taking the time to leave this excellent review.
My friend and I did the Kathmandu Valley Highlights tour plus Lumbini. Ramesh was incredibly helpful in finding good solutions for us due to a cancelled flight – our tour had to be adjusted and with his professionalism we didn't miss a single thing! Our guide, Rajesh, was really the highlight of our tour. He is a really warm, knowledgeable, and kind person. He really did his best to understand our tastes, interests, and needs. This was my first time in Nepal and I loved everything I saw and experienced. I can't wait to go back, and when I do, I'll book with Apex again.
Operator's comment: Ana, thank you so much for taking the time to leave this excellent review.
A fantastic short holiday in Kathmandu with a trek at Shivapuri in the National Park and a tour of the beautiful National Botanic Gardens near Kathmandu
Operator's comment: Thanks for the beautiful words, Helena! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Come back and see us soon. Cheers!
I honestly can not say enough wonderful things about Gyanu (or Dai as we know call him). He is incredibly, warm, friendly and knowledgable about the entire area. We got unlucky with the weather and were not able to fly in to Lukla at the beginning of the trip, which as you can imagine was quite stressful. We had to add an extra three days to our timeline, spending the first two days hiking 10 hours up and down extremely rocky paths. Gyanu kept us upbeat and positive the entire way, singing in Nepali and encouraging us to keep going. Fun fact: He is also a poet, and would constantly make up rhymes to keep us and the patrons of every tea house entertained and smiling! He is well known throughout the trek and loved everywhere (and also has a few card tricks up his sleeve). I could not recommend him and this trek more - it is an experience I will never forget and I couldn't imagine a better guide. Thank you so much Dai!
Operator's comment: Thanks for the beautiful review, Anastasia! We’re pleased to hear we hit the mark for you. Come back and see us soon. Cheers!
We had a private version of this tour where Ramesh went out of his way to help schedule in everything we wanted and answered all my questions very promptly. Everything went according to plan. Accomodation was fine, Our guide Gyanu was like part of the family and he and Ramesh reorganized our itinerary on the fly to help get around road works. Gyanu was there to help us and guide us and make us laugh. We couldnt have done it without him. We loved Nepal and its poeple and culture and scenery. The weather was great and we saw no mosquitoes even in Chitwan. Thank you so much to all involved.
