Rey was a ray of sunshine! I have been visiting places and using different tour guides for weeks – and I can say with certainty that Rey is the best one I have had so far. He cares about the mountains and Nepal as a whole and brings extensive knowledge. As we were hiking, he kept removing trash he found along the way, and telling me the names of the birds, animals, and trees we encountered. Other than that, he is patient and got a fun and outgoing personality. Throughout the hike, he kept encouraging me (I kept complaining about the endless stairs we had to climb), and reminding me that we could always slow down if I wished. He also shared jokes and stories about life in Nepal – which allowed me to have a sense of what it is like to live there. We ended the hike with local snacks he had brought. I am grateful that I got to learn about Nepal through his lenses and experience this hike. I would rate more than 5* if I can. Again Thank you so much, Ray.
