Chitwan jungle safari & Pokhara
April- May 2014
The two trips (Pokahra/Chitwan/Dhampus and Nagarkot) were excellently arranged by Bipin and his staff at Social Tours. Bipin took time to discuss my requirements, the type of things I enjoy and what I wanted from the trips. He was patient, well informed and listened to what I said. He and the team are friendly, courteous, welcoming and professional. Calling into the office was always a pleasure, and being in Nepal for a month it made a big difference knowing that there were 'friendly faces' around he corner. In particular, Bipin was very understanding when I phoned at 09:15 on a Saturday morning with my European head on, completely forgetting that Saturday is a non-work day - sorry Bipin ! I am very grateful for the friendship and warmth that was conveyed, together with the Ciyā that was always provided - thank you all for making my journey to Nepal memorable in many ways.
Chitwan Jungle Safari & Pokhara
socialtours organised an individual tour of just under three weeks for our first visit to Nepal including trekking in the Annapurna area, wildlife and birdwatching in Chitwan, relaxing in Pokhara and seeing the sights of Kathmandu and dawn over the Himalayas. It was the best holiday ever, beautifully and discretely guided and great value. They were very accommodating to all our requirements including some last minute alterations. Every member of staff was delightful and thoroughly professional. We cannot recommend socialtours highly enough. If you are thinking of organising a holiday in

We were impressed by the speed with which you organised a tailor-made trip for us, and the immediacy of your responses to our email queries during the planning phase. This gave us a feeling of confidence in using a company that was new to us, and we appreciated Bipin’s personal involvement at all stages of the holiday, especially when we wanted to increase the amount of time in the hills. You were a great partner for our first footsteps in Nepal.
Poon Hill Trek & Volunteering
20 days | Nov - Dec 2007
have already made made three trips with socialtours organized for different groups of pupils. I would be delighted to recommend this company to organize trips for young adults. Our trips included trekking, rafting, a jungle safari and heritage tours of the Kathmandu valley. You can rely on the professional way in which trips are prepared according to the special needs of your group, and during the trip you will always feel in safe hands. All members of staff are remarkably helpful and friendly, and the guides are well chosen.
When we travelled with socialtours my pupils did not only have a great adventure and saw a lot of beautiful landscape, they also began to understand how the Nepali people who live in a completely different culture feel and think. Without the help of this company we would not be able to develop our school partnership project with a small village school in Nepal.
After the first trip many of the students decided to go on a second or even third trip.
City tour & Jungle Activities
15 days | Oct 2009
Over all, very happy with our trip. socialtours staff were friendly, helpful and fun! The sign of good customer service is how you deal with a problem and learn from it, and so we feel that the way handled the Bandipur situation was a good example of this. We appreciated the flexibility, responsiveness and helpfulness of all staff at socialtours. socialtours advised us on an intinerary, which took account of our own requests and preferences and was informed by their own expertise. So we got to see everything from ancient temples to snow capped mountains and even some sightings of the very rare rhino and tiger, the latter being the surprise highlight of our trip! In addition to briefing us on our holiday activities, socialtours staff gave us insights into Nepali culture, society and also lots of useful information on socially responsible tourism in Nepal - without forcing thing on us. We are going home with lots of happy memories and hope to return one day to do one of those treks!
Trekking, Jungle Activities & Spa
18 days | Sep-Oct 2009
We have had an amazing time . socialtours produced a very good package for us and were very helpful throughout our stay. If there was a problem(we only had one) socialtours were very quick to sort it out.Our guide and porter for the trekking part of our adventure were first rate and lovely people. We learned so much about the local cultures and wildlife (and some new card games!)
Trekking, Canyoning, Mountain Biking, Bungy, Rafting & Jungle Activities
11 days | Aug - Sep 2009
As a solo traveller I highly suggest socialtours.com. I may have been able to plan the entire trip myself by following Lonely Planet but socialtours took out a lot of the guess work and handled the details. As an event planner I know how important these minor details can be. I was able to go with the flow and enjoy my daily activities and the local culture without being worried about missing something or getting lost.
Chitwan Jungle Safari
5 Days | December 2008
Bipin our Trip Consultant handled all of our emails as soon as he received them and was informative and helpful in spite of our constant questions. He changed our booking and group numbers on more than one occasion and was always polite and friendly. In person he was just the same – we had a great night out with our hosts, a lovely ride to Chitwan (in spite of our silent driver!) and all in all a fantastic experience. I’ll be recommending Social Tours to all my friends as the best way to see
Activity Holiday: Trekking, Jungle Safari, Rafting & Heritage tour
15 Days| October 2007
I would be delighted to recommend Social tours to organize a trip in Nepal. They organized every day of our 15 days which included white water rafting, a city tour of Katmandu, safari in Chitwan, mountain flight and trekking. The people we met and dealt with within socialtours were lovely and very competent and actually cared about you having a good time and seeing the best of their country. Each part of the trip they organized for us was with the most reputable tour company for that excursion within Nepal and we would not have changed any of it. You will be in safe hands if you let them make recommendations for you trip.
