“Professional care.”

I did Poon Hill trek and Kathmandu One Day trip and I recommend both. Poon Hill ensures breathtaking viewesand Kathmandu is a real city of temples. Zed’s crew is a professional one from the very begin. Gave good advices. In Poland I had a great help from their european representative and in Nepal they picked me up from the airport and took a really good care for all my stay. Thank you Zed for everything. All the best!
