To state the obvious, Nepal is beautiful. Ace is focused on providing their guests with the best experience possible. From the owner Prem, the office staff, the guides Maddah, Dipesh, and Ramesh, and the our porters, a good experience is their number one priority. You will spend 14 days with these folks, so compatibility is paramount. I was unable to provide any suggestions for improving their services. They love their work and I am honored to consider them friends. The basecamp trek is hard but not grueling. Ace took care of every detail and nimbly responded to necessary changes to our itineraries. Ace arranged for us to be married at the Tengboche Monastery and again took care of every detail, even the ones we didn’t anticipate. A truly magical experience arranged by Ace. We typically prefer the adventure of finding our own way but we are so glad we chose Ace to experience Nepal and Kathmandu.

The porters, guides, and trip managers that we worked with were some of the most genuine, hospitable, accommodating, friendly, and hard working people I have ever met. They constantly stay three steps ahead of any uncontrollable problems you encounter such as weather. They know exactly what you need before you know you need it. They went from strangers to friends to family very quickly because they were so awesome. Madan, Ramesh, Dipesh, Prem, and Sajiya did an absolutely amazing job and they should all be very proud of the experience they provided because it was life changing. I wish I could give 6 stars because they could not have been more perfect and the guides make all the difference for a trip like this. Date of experience: May 2022

I had an amazing once in a life time experience in the Himalayas with my Dad. We chose a trek to Everest Base Camp going through Gokyo and Over the Cho La Pass. From our first email enquiry almost a year before our trip we knew we chose the right tour operator. Sujan - a trip coordinator for the company in Nepal answered all of our questions regarding times, travel expectations and trip specifics. He was always prompt with reply’s and made sure our hotels and airport pickups were booked and made tweaking times and booking extra days easy and convenient when my flights changed last minute! Everyone at Ace was friendly, professional and most importantly helpful at every step. It was also reassuring to see hand sanitizer and masks in offices and hotels with signs stating the Covid safety measures being taken. It feels good to travel again! The actual trek? Absolutely incredible! And it was made possible and enhanced by our amazing guide Nimesh and our porter Pradip. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Nimesh was so knowledgeable about the trail, mountains, tea houses, flora and fauna and was never bothered by the question ‘which mountain is that one?’ No matter how many times I asked it! He gave great recommendations regarding meals at the different tea houses as we climbed in elevation and remoteness which was very much appreciated. He was also very attentive in making sure we had everything we needed - getting our food and drink orders in, checking our oxygen levels, asking how we slept, and just making sure we were comfortable and enjoying the experience. He went over with us every evening what the next day would look like, how long, how steep, weather predictions, etc. On top of being a great guide he also has a great sense of humour and made the 15 day trek a lot of fun, even when we had hours of ‘Nepalese Flat’ in between steep climbs! Thank you for a wonderful time Nimesh! Our porter Pradip was an all star!! He put us to shame everyday carrying our duffel bags and beating us to the tea houses! We had our bags in their rain covers so they both looked the same but he still knew who’s bag was whose and made sure we had the key to the room with the right bag every night. He was polite and helpful and we never could have done this trip without him doing all the heavy lifting for us. I have a lot of admiration and respect for what he can do! All around this was a great trip and I thank everyone at Ace The Himalayas for making this bucket list experience so enjoyable.
