I had the best adventure with my friends doing the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.
When the manager from My Everest Trip picked us up at the airport, we were so excited about Nepal and our trek. We had a few days in Kathmandu before our tour, and Puru was very helpful in ensuring the taxi drivers would not cheat us, showing us good places to eat and shop, and helping with everything we needed. Before the trek, he made sure we had an excellent briefing, and we were amazed to hear he would guide the tour himself and his assistant guide Ratna.
The trek was hard work and great fun. All the staff joining in on tour was passionate about their work. Some of the porters did not speak much English, but we communicated the best we could and laughed a lot because one of my friends is a bit of an actor and always tried to act out what she wanted to tell them. Puru was the whole trek present and kind, not only to us but to everybody we met; one day, we walked with a group from another company, and Puru noticed that one of the girls was struggling a bit and without a word, he just took her backpack so she could walk more accessible.
I do not doubt that the people at My Everest Trip, led by Puru, represent modern Nepal with deep roots in tradition, culture, and humility. They are modest people with excellent knowledge of their country.
After the trek, we had plans to stay a few days on our own in Pokhara to relax and do paragliding. Before Puru returned to Kathmandu, he arranged for a nice hotel and our bus ticket back to Kathmandu, where he would meet us and go for dinner.
We are very thankful for the personal service we received; we could not have wished for anything more, except maybe for more time in Nepal, so I think we need to go back and meet all the good and warm-hearted people again.
I give you my warmest recommendation.
