Ammar’s kindness and responsiveness in addressing all our inquiries about our Daman hiking trip in Nepal were truly appreciated. We sought to arrange a guide and a private van to take us to the Daman view tower, and Ammar made it happen seamlessly.
Our stay at Daman hill was nothing short of superb, providing us with breathtaking views and unforgettable moments. Even when we had to make a sudden change to our itinerary, skipping the Kathmandu heritage sites day tour, Ammar went above and beyond to help us customize our trip according to our preferences.
