  1. Unforgettable Journey
    By Bella Yeo March 12, 2024
    We booked a Nepal tour that consisted of sightseeing around Kathmandu, safari in Chitwan and Poon Hill trek with Mosaic Adventure. It was for our family of 6 people, with members as young as 12 years old and as old as 67. The trip was well planned, and all of us enjoyed it. It was a good family tour to explore beautiful places in Nepal and also to learn more about it with local guides in different places. Keshar in Kathmandu, Prabhat during the Chitwan tour and Pralhad during the Poon Hill trek were all exceptional. The whole team at Mosaic seems to be polite, professional and service oriented. We highly recommend this team and are already planning our next trekking trip in Nepal with them.
  2. Fantastic Tour
    By Jack Wynn February 25, 2024
    We had a great visit to Nepal during this Taste of Nepal Tour. All three of us truly enjoyed the trip. We are thankful to Mosaic Adventure for managing our tour. During this tour, we explored Kathmandu, Pokhara, trekked to Poon Hill and also visited Chitwan National Park where we got to see some wild elephants and rhinos. Highly recommended tour with a mosaic of everything Nepal has to offer.
  3. Trip was perfect
    By Anand Haridas February 24, 2016
    This was my first visit to Nepal and the experience was pleasant. Mr Madhav (My tour coordinator) was excellent right from the beginning in his response to my mails or phone calls. The trip was perfect and it couldn't have been better, I would strongly recommend this company to anybody who wants to visit Nepal.

    Great trip around Nepal
    By Lucy Ayers November 11, 2015
    We've had a great trip around Nepal. Really enjoyed the beautiful countryside & meeting all the villagers. Also had an amazing time at the Chitwan Jungle Safari. Specially enjoyed swimming with the elephant and spotting a rhino on our jungle walk.

    Seamless and brilliant
    By Alison Harvey April 4, 2015
    The many elements of our trip to Nepal were seamlessly and brilliantly put together by Madhav at Mosaic. With knowledgeable and friendly guides we got the most out of this trip. We found the personal care provided by Madhav and Keshar, Arjun, Santosh and Azay (guides and porters) was exceptional, particularly when we got into a few scrapes. This care even extended after we'd left the country. I would readily recommend Mosaic to anyone.
  6. Brilliant trip
    By Evans Didi May 25, 2014
    Have just come back from a superb 12 days in Nepal trekking with Mosaic. Having made the last minute decision to book the trip I was sent an email reply almost immediately from Madhav who was very accommodating and efficient. Madhav also met me personally on arrival at the hotel in Kathmandu, on my return and saw me off to the airport on my departure. I was booked into the Thamel Ecolodge which has been mentioned in other reviews - lovely, clean, cozy little place with great staff. This was my first time trekking and as I was travelling alone was a little nervous. However my guide Krishna proved very capable, professional and attentive - and with a good understanding of English was a great companion the entire trip. He ensured I ate my fill at each meal, that I refilled my water bottle at every opportunity and was really very good and patient about making sure I took all the photos I wanted. Mosaic also provided a porter - Gopi - who continually amazed me with his strength and stamina. And who never stopped smiling. On my return to Kathmandu Madhav arranged for a City Tour. My new guide was Keesar - who provided me with an in depth and detailed understanding of Buddhism, Hinduism and Nepalese history. Keesar was professional and courteous and took the time to answer my many, many questions. All in all a brilliant trip - I'd recommend Mosaic to anyone planning a trip to Nepal.
