Excellent trip to Bardia National Park!

We chose Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd to organize our 3 Nights 4 day tour to Bardia National Park, including another trip to Nepal. We didn't have to worry as Kishor had planned our trip to Nepal, including Bardia National Park, from beginning to end. Our jungle safari in Bardia was terrific. We found the hotel booked for us to be the best in Bardia. The best food and nature guide was excellent. We didn't see the Tigger, but we are delighted with the service from this company. The hotel staff was very welcoming, and the food was excellent. Starting and ending the day by the large fireplace and cuddling with a hot water bottle after a hot shower at night was very special. Everything was so well planned that we did not need to worry. Kishor was always in touch to help us, and we found him trustworthy, professional and delivered everything as promised. Thank you for organizing a nice trip in Nepal. Hope to see you next time for another trip.
