  • My wife and I recently finished a 5 day cultural tour of Bhutan arranged by Mountain Mart Trek. We feel that all.involved in our experience were very dilligent to ensure our happyness with our tour. Our Guide Mr. Sangay was very enthusiastic and knowledgable about his country and culture. He was very helpful with questions and concerns. He went out of his way to ensure our comfort. Mr. Tobdan, our driver, was very courteous and was also great fun. The accommodations far exceeded our expectations and the food was tremendous. The sites we visited were beautiful, colorful and rich in history. Bhutan has many beautiful vistas. I highly recommend this tour.
  • 10 day trek to Everest Base Camp with our guide Lochan was phenomenal once we got on the trail. Him and his team took care of all lodging (excellent), food (delicious), permits, and ensured health all the way up the mountain allowing us to take the experience all in. We couldn't have been happier and would fully recommend him to anyone. The hardest part of this trek though is getting in and out of Lukla airport. My wife and my only complaint of the whole trip was feeling a little extorted by opting to pay a higher than market rate of $450 per person for a helicopter ride from Air Dynasty Helicopter company in Ramechhap airport and not being delivered the ride in a timely manner. In short, weather wiped out flights the day we arrived so we elected on our own accord to pay for the helicopter ride including the price of the flight for our guide. We found another person outside our tour group to fill the chopper so that our per person rate would be reduced. All looked good when Air Dynasty took our money around 11am the day we arrived. This was a mistake and a poor recommendation by Dolakh. The company representative pretty much disappeared that day and despite 8 other choppers landing and taking off, Air Dynasty failed to send one for pickup. We also asked around and everyone else had paid less than $300 per person for each of theirs. Daylight ended and we were forced to delay a night. The next morning, we were told our helicopter would arrive by 6:30am. It didn't and at that point planes were taking off. We still had our plane ticket but because of the guessing game with Air Dynasty, we failed to check in and continued to wait. Air Dynasty didn't show up with a representative until about 9am that morning and was verbally accosted by different travelers who had booked an Air Dynasty helicopter 2 days prior. At that point, it did seem like there was more urgency to get a copter to Ramechhap, but ours still didn't show. While waiting, we went to the airplane counter to try and check-in and they asked where we had been because they had already flown everyone out who had had overnight delays. Finally, we ended up boarding a different helicopter that Air Dynasty had to sub-charter out by late morning when their copters continued to not show. Looking back, we paid an extra $900 on our trip and were the absolute last people on the trail from everyone who arrived the same day we did to Ramechhap. Not the end of the world, but we did have to mention to Dolakh after the trip our dissatisfaction with being recommended Air Dynasty as a helicopter company. Fortunately, Lochan's excellent hospitality made us quickly forget the rougher start and no complaints whatsoever afterwards.
