  • Holly Jackson's review about another Ace the Himalaya tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    We took a custom trip to Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Everything went smoothly except for a bad driver in Tibet. The company was very attentive to our requests, so it was a great value for the price!

  • Jon's review about another Ace the Himalaya tour
    4.5 - Excellent

    That was a fantastic trip. 22 days trekking in really good weather - from 5th October. Our guide quickly worked out our group walking pace (SLOW on the uphill passes at that altitude!). An excellent AceTheHimalaya team of guide, Nimesh, "trainee" guide,... Read more

    • Lynette12th April 2018
      I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
