Me and my partner had a great time trekking in the beautiful selected route through mountains to Poonhill! Beautiful people, authentic food and amazing scenery! Kathmandu, Chitwan and Pokhara was different but also fantastic cultural experience! Flying over Everest was once in a life experience too! The guide and porters were very helpful and we enjoyed pleasant conversation with them! I left my brand new $300 rain jacket at one of the hotel we’ve stayed at in the mountain area. I never thought I could get it back. But the guide, guide assistant and manager Raj himself went out their way to help me got my jacket back and shipped it to Australia for me! That’s amazing! I would definitely recommend this company to any of my friends who want to travel to Nepal! Reliable and trustworthy!

We had a wonderful time in Nepal, it was due to the excellent work done by the whole outfitters team. Arjun, who answered all our questions without delay, Raj, who ensured we were looked after in Kathmandu and Sonjay, with his team of guides and porters ensured everything was right on the trek An excellent introduction to Nepal. Highly recommended

I had an AMAZING time on my Everest base Camp Trek, I am glad that I chose to go with Outfitter Nepal for my lifetime adventure to Everest base camp !!!
Being a woman, I was skeptical to sign up for a solo trip first as I didn't have any friends to join me on this trip. But the moment I met one of the owners of Outfitter Nepal- Mr. NG, I was relieved and felt very satisfied when he suggested me to join a group of 6 ladies for the trip starting on Feb 26th, 2019. I not only enjoyed the trek to its fullest but ended up making lots of good friends.

Thanks to our guide Sanjay, who was very experienced and very patient with the group of 7 ladies :) . He had a great sense of humor and was very helpful throughout the trip. He knew his stuff and did his best to make this trip a memorable one for us.

I will be definitely coming back for the next trek (maybe ABC) in a few years :)

        About Signature Collection by Gate 1

        A unique collection of luxury trips designed by Gate 1 travel.

        What Makes Gate 1 Signature Collection Stand Out?

        These are luxury minded trips with a local focus. Guides are all local experts, from and living in the destination you’re visiting. Each itinerary features exclusive experiences. Groups are small and each day is full of activity but well balanced.

        They focus on offering only a select group of trips in this special collection - allowing them the freedom to create truly spectacular itineraries - which include more inclusions in the price than their other collections.

        The tagline is “More Luxury for Less”. These tours may not be in same luxury travel class if you’re used to Abercrombie & Kent, however where comfort and extravagance meets fun and busy travel days of sightseeing and tours, you’ll find Gate 1 Signature Collection.

        Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

        Those travelers who are willing to spend a little bit more for a 4-5 star experience, will probably find a sweet spot with Gate 1 Signature tours. These trips tend to be attended by older travelers, in the 50+ range.  

        Don’t expect too much strenuous activity. You can expect easy paced walks, guided tours and lectures, and stops to explore interesting cultural sites and historical attractions.

        While some of these cultural experiences, included in their “Signature Experiences”, are truly unique, be wary that many of these inclusions are fairly standard offerings - such as a hot air balloon ride over the African savannah. So the luxury experience of exclusivity you may be expecting is to be taken with a grain of salt. These tours offer wonderful experiences - but the destinations or activities are not always particularly uncommon or rare.  

        Top Destinations

        They currently don’t offer an overly extensive list of countries, but tours do go all over the world. This includes Central Europe, Spain, and the UK, Israel, Jordan and Morocco, Peru, Southeast Asia, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

        Gate 1 Signature Collection Travel Style

        Signature Collection tours with Gate 1 aim for comfort, ease, and unique cultural experiences. Like their other brands, Gate 1’s Signature Collection is about making sure your sightseeing is maximized, and the price is right for the experience.

        Most sightseeing, meals, wifi, tips, and their “Signature Experiences” are included in the itinerary price - unlike Gate 1’s main brand which offers less inclusions. This type of itinerary more helpful to budget travelers wishing to pick and choose which activities they would like to pay for. Gate 1 Signature Tours, however, are best suited to those who want more inclusions and less hassle to have to decide on how to spend their travel time.

        Why Choose a Tour with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

        If you’re an older traveler looking for a boutique, comfortable, and well paced tour, the Signature tours may suit you very well. Travelers love the customer service, attention to detail, and depth of knowledge the guides bring to each day on the tour. There is also a good balance of free time and optional additional sightseeing opportunities.

        All tours feature included “Signature Experiences” which are the main highlights that make the Signature Collection tours stand out from the other Gate 1 brands. These are unique excursions, usually with a strong cultural focus - such as an evening of Irish music in Galway, or a traditional dinner in the deserts of Morocco. They also often include lectures that explore a destinations history or a specific facet of the culture.

        About Outfitter Nepal Treks & Expedition Pvt. Ltd.

        Outfitter Nepal specializes in trekking tours with a local touch.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Entirely locally owned and operated, Outfitter Nepal not only offers thrilling treks in one of the trekking capitals of the world, they also provide distinctly local and cultural insight. All of their tour leaders are experts in leading trekking and well qualified to help if issues arise. They are also extremely dedicated to the natural landscape, and take responsible environmentalism very seriously.

        Who Travels With Them?

        Trekking is ideally suited to travelers who enjoy challenging physical activity, are healthy and able bodied. Outfitter Nepal tours have a variety of difficulty levels within the “challenging” and “extreme” realm.

        Where Do They Operate?

        While their speciality is, unsurprisingly, Nepal, where they operate 207 packages, they also offer trekking experiences in Bhutan and Tibet. Multi country tours are also available.

        Why Travel With Them?

        If you’re looking for a uniquely local experience in Nepal and after a physical challenge, this tour company would be a good fit. With a slogan like “Discover the world...and yourself” Outfitter Nepal understands the transformative nature of a trekking tour, and do everything they can to make the experience as meaningful as possible.
