Frank Theunissen

I had an amazing experience hiking to the Everest Basecamp thanks to all efforts made by John, Sudip(guide) and Tek (who was so kind to carry my luggage all the way – lazy me!).
Everything was being taken care off. From the arrival at the airport in Kathmandu to the departure back. The guide is very professional and will do anything to satisfy you. Thanks to John I had also the opportunity to be guided through Kathmandu upon my return from Lukla. A must do trip for every hiker. Don’t let the altitudes scare you off as the guide and porter will assist you and add several acclimatisation days.
The choice of teahouses and hotels was also excellent.
I can advise anyone to book through Travel Max Guide.

Overall excellent with much personal attention by the Company Owner. Good guide and porter. 3 Passes trek had fewer folks than the standard EBC trek which was what I wanted and it worked out well. Renjo La Pass was the highlight with the best view of Everest.

In my 2 week stay,

In my 2 week stay, John was very professional and took me around to experience all that Kathmandu and surrounding areas has to offer. Sites were seen and many locals were met through John’s network. He is a kind man who will take care of any issue no matter how big or small. I highly recommend his company for any travel needs you may have.

First step in the Everest Base Camp

I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit Bthe uddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
