Tour around Nepal
rating Review date : 11 Nov, 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.

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.
