hi! i plan to visit Nepal this last August. is it better to book for a tour now or can I have better bargains for such tours if I am already in Nepal?
Both options are OK but I personally recommend you to book from home. You can inquire with different agencies and compare the prices and services and choose one of them. It will make you worry free and everything will be confirmed when you are in Kathmandu.
thanks very much!
You are welcome to the himalayan country Nepal. It is better to book now and it would be more easy for you. You can google diffrent travel and trekking agency in Nepal and send inquiry then you can book the best one.
I don't know if I'm allowed to make recommendations on here so I'm going to word this carefully. It was important to me that when I looked into Nepal (I will be there in November) I made sure the money was going to the Nepalese people. I wanted to work with a local company and help to benefit their economy, as opposed to a travel company in the USA. After A LOT of research, I found a company in Nepal that is arranging all of my travel (tours and homestay). If you would like to message me privately I will share more details.Edited: 25 August 2012, 21:47
do this - browse and narrow down to couple of agncies - finalize all the details about your travel plans with each of them seperately. but make selection between the two once you have landed in ktm and have had a chance to meet each of them - that way you are certain. don't pre-pay anything. the only drawback with this strategy is that you many not be able to book the last minute flights out of KTM they might be full - if you are planning to be there for a short time and have travel plans out side of KTM via air that is. but late Aug is not all that busy.Edited: 26 August 2012, 02:34
i think you would save a lot of money organising when in Nepal, you'll be able to haggle over a price and it would be quite usual to be able to meet your guide before you start. Its worth researching before you go and then maybe set half a day aside while your there to arrange it all. you'll pay a lot more if you book with an agent before you go.
