"Reliable and professional. They really know the mountain regions and actual conditions. They can arrange any trip in Nepal for you either a full service or just necessary permits. It was pleasure to use services of Namaste Treks & Expedition. I was in Everest 3 passes trek and Manaslu with them."
"Excellent services, friendly and helpful staff,perfect knowledge of the location."
-Martina Michálková, Prague, Czech Republic
"If you are going to trek in Nepal you MUST have Master Chief, Dr. T (Steve Tickle) as your guide!"
-Stephanie Graham, Oklahoma USA
"An amazing experience and one I would love to take on again! Steve and his team delivered in a huge way. Incredibly knowledgeable about the area, the people, and the culture. I couldn't recommend a trip like this with anyone else. You will not be disappointed."

"This is a trip of a lifetime! I recently went to Nepal with Steve and his crew. The staff is organized, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Before the trip Steve was very informative and made the process very smooth. This carried over to the trek where everything was virtually flawless. The staff is some of the kindest people you will ever meet. I have made lifelong friends from this trip and will never forget it!"
-Jessica Hanna, Seattle USA
"I traveled with Steve and Namaste Treks in Nepal this last fall. It was a trip I had been looking to make for 15 years. The land was uniquely beautiful and the people were so kind, I was not disappointed. Having a quality guide in Steve and Namaste made all the difference in the world for managing any logistics and for making the very most of the trip. Highly organized, fun and exceptionally experienced in the region."
-D. Walker, Washington
"They are unquestionably the best trekking company in Nepal!
I want to thank Steve and Jangbu (of Namaste Treks) for one of the most amazing experiences in my life. I cannot imagine any other trekking company coming even close to level of experience and professionalism that was exhibited on a daily basis. Your preparedness to adapt and modify our daily itinerary as circumstances dictated and to implement contingencies in accordance with what was best for our group went beyond all my expectations. Not only did you insure we stayed at the best teahouses available at every stop, you made sure we had the opportunity to engage with the local community and get a very real sense of the daily lives of our Nepalese hosts. The opportunity for inter-cultural exchanges provided in Kunde and Kathmandu were an especially rewarding experience, as were the frequent inclusion of our guides and porters in our daily trekking."
-B. Holland-Smith, Camano Island, WA
"Steve is an excellent guide. He provided us an opportunity to last a lifetime with his planned schedules to acclimate, eat, and enjoy. I highly recommend Steve and his trekking company."
"I recently returned from Nepal and a Trek with Steve experience. Steve's emails prior to the trip were always timely, informative, organized, accurate and thorough (i.e. what stuff to bring, maps, the culture, and so much more) which gave insight into how Steve was going to manage his trek. It was therefore no surprise that the trek was well organized and expertly executed. The lodging is the best available in each village. Steve has been there and done this many times and knows where to stay. Everybody gets to order their own food which can be a real morale boost to start off a new day, midday or after a long day. The staff (sherpas and porters) were all friendly, professional and experienced and many had worked for Steve in the past. Steve has many friends in Nepal from his many trips over the years. Steve also has a business partner who lives in Nepal which is a big advantage in terms of making lodging and domestic group flight reservations and able to adjust to changing circumstances should they ever arise. Steve's package includes a group dinner before the trek and a celebration dinner in Kathmandu at the conclusion; a very nice gesture. I could go on and on but I just want anybody who is reading this and considering a trek in Nepal to know that Steve is your guy. Look no further. He is not only a professional who has your back but also a really nice guy who is tuned in to everyone individually on a daily, if not hourly basis. He's the kind of guy you want to trek with. But more importantly, he's the kind of guy you want to be leading your trek! Namaste."
"If you ever decide to go to Nepal and go on the trek to base Camp… Pick this expedition group to take you… and guide you… they are definitely the best."
