The Everest Region draws a huge number of tourists and trekking enthusiasts, but has a higher costs of trekking, due to the fact that you need to fly in fly out. There is an option to trek in, but that will take an additional 10 days of in and out.
We present here feedback from the trips we conduct in the region. Trips are generally custom tailored, but we are actively promoting the custom tailored EBC trek and the Renjo La and Gokyo treks here.
In general I did have a wonderful experience- all socialtours members in particular Bipin was wonderful when I returned from the mountains helping me thorough a difficult time and providing much cultural information.

I truly enjoyed meeting all the staff at Social Tours office. They are warm and helpful in the face of delay problems that they worked hard to fix. My guide was more than just a guide; I feel she is my friend. We had many laughs along the way and she took very good care of me when I was not feeling too well. She also introduced me to many of the friends she knew along the way, including a young man who has summit Everest 5 times, 5th was that day we meet him. That was a special evening. My porter was amazingly fast and getting to villages to get us lodge rooms so we could take our time, which I really needed at times. He also was very assistive with bringing, or helping me to just carry, my few things around at the lodges. It was an amazing trip, and I learned a great deal about the Sherpa people and myself. A most heartfelt Thank you to each and every one of you. Keep up the great work!
I'm full with impressions and have lots of pictures and 'videos' in my mind. It is really hard to come back to reality after such a great trek. I can tell you that these days belong to the most beautiful in my life. We were all absolutely enthusiastic about it. Thanks to you and all the others who made this dream come true.

I want to personally commend Tassi for the great job that she did answering the myriad of e-mail questions that I submitted in advance of our trip and for her great hospitality at the evening meals in Kathmandu. In that regard, the meal that we had at the Palace and Rum Doodles were both great. The authentic music and dancing at the Palace was a great early introduction to Nepal.

socialtours provided a great service and offered excellent value for money. Our guide looked after every detail and knew everything about the local environment and community. It was good to use a company which promotes responsible tourism and which gave us the opportunity to customise our trek and to travel in a smaller group than would be possible with the other large tour operators. I would definitely use socialtours again and recommend them to my friends.

"After working with a number of tour operators in different countries around the world, I found my experience with socialtours a bit of a revelation! Finally I believe I’ve found someone who truly defines what it means to be an adventure tour company. I spent the best part of three weeks with socialtours on the Everest Base Camp trek, leading a team of 15 young people from the UK and it was fantastic on our return journey to hear nothing but admiration and kind words for the efforts of each and every member of staff of the company. No matter what the activity, I would recommend socialtours to anyone travelling to the Himalaya"
