Our group did the Poon Hill trek with Bim and Bir as our guides. Had an amazing couple of days and really loved both the trek and the enthusiasm of the guides. The trek ran very smoothly with all the accommodation and meals booked in advance so there was no waiting around or confusion about anything which was great. We were encouraged not to buy water to avoid the use of single-use plastic, but instead fill our water bottles from local sources and have the water purified using a UV Steripen. This proved a cost-effective, environmentally friendly and safe way to access water on the trek. The route was great and we were rewarded with some amazing views of the Himalayas from the top of Poon Hill at sunrise. The guides themselves also made the trek a lot of fun, joining in on games and pointing out interesting aspects of the landscape/environment that we wouldn't have noticed otherwise. Overall we had an incredible time and would definitely book through Trekking Team Group again if I'm lucky enough to revisit Nepal.

I recently took part in the Poon Hill trek with a group of other students. The guides Bir and Bim were great company and looked after us all so well. For the entire length of the trek we did not have to worry about food or accommodation as they had it sorted. They were always on hand to answer questions and have vast amounts of knowledge about the area so it was also an opportunity to learn lots too. Overall, a fantastic experience on a trek with some amazing views. Thank you Trekking team group.

Both Bim and Bir are really amazing guides! They took us up Poon hill this September for what was a fantastic experience. They have great English skills and lots of experience, which made the whole trek incredibly enjoyable - even if it was hard work! 10/10 would recommend!

Bir and Bim have given us a trek of a lifetime! Genuinely couldn’t have asked for more. Went up Poon Hill with them and felt safe and supported whilst encouraged to make the most of the immersive experience. Their advice, presence and conversation was much appreciated by everyone.

I strongly recommend the trekking group team agency. I did the mardi himal trek with Suk who is a super guide, very professional, carrying so much for us (in particular to prevent from the AMM), with humour. The organisation of the trek was perfect. Sree, the contact in the agency was very professional too,and is listening to the customers and makes sure everything is fine for us. I really advise this agency.

I would warmly advise you to book with Trekking Team Group if you are visiting Nepal! I booked a Mardi Himal trek with them and a one-day guided tour in Kathmandu and they were both amazing and perfectly planned. Trekking was absolutely stunning! Our guide (Suk) was funny, extremely prepared and knowledgeable. Plus nobody had any issues with AMS. Book with them if you want an unforgettable Nepalese experience! I am already planning to come back and will book with them if I need it!

We did a modified 14-day Annapurna circuit in April 2019. The modified itenerary had been proposed by the agency and it was a great alternative to the usual one with condensed great walks and views.
Our guide and porter were really nice and always making sure we were ok. They always tried to find us a room with attached toilet, which was nice.
One of the reason we went with this company was the no plastic bottle policy. They did sterilized our water (steripen or boiling) every time we asked and we did not have any stomach issue, so we were really happy with that.
One of our other concerns about trekking was how the porter and guide are treated : both our guide and porter seemed to be treated ok. The guide had good gears. The porter gears were ok: not the best ones but far from the worst ones we saw. The guide was knowledgeable when asked questions.
Most of the trek went smoothly. Our guide was planning things ahead (and thus spending quite a lot of time on his phone). Once we had to wait quite a while for our transportation to pick us up, but it happened only once in the 14 days and I guess it is normal in Nepal on busy days.
The communication with Shreehari before and after the trek was great. I sent him my comments when I came back from holidays and he was happy to take notes of my recommendations.
Overall we are really happy with our experience. I would most definitely recommend the modified Annapurna circuit.

Trekking Team Group are a fantastic local trekking company if you're planning a holiday or trek in Nepal and, simply put, Birman Tamang is the best trekking guide this side of Everest.
We booked a 20 day trek to Everest Base Camp during April 2019 through Inspiring Vacations. The overall package was initially compiled and coordinated by Inspiring Vacations (including flights, itinerary, etc), though once we hit the ground in Kathmandu it was Shreehari and his team at Trekking Team Group that managed the logistics of our trek, accommodation, meals, transport, etc. Shreehari and his team were always friendly and professional, and always willing to go above and beyond to ensure we felt comfortable, informed and happy. It was comforting to know we were in the hands of a local trekking company who not only had many years of experience, but who also provided support to local communities and schools through various initiatives. We only had a small group (3 people), which was great.
Birman Tamang was our guide for the trek, and I can't imagine having a better guide. Birman picked us up from Kathmandu airport (welcoming us with genuine enthusiasm) and stayed with us through to our return to the airport 20 days later. He has a great wealth of knowledge about not only trekking in the Himalayas but also Nepal, it's history, religion, culture, food and people. Birman's positivity and enthusiasm were seemingly endless and highly infectious. He's very patient and quite observant, so we always felt at ease along the trek and never rushed. He's also really flexibile and seems to have contacts in most of the lodges and tea houses along the trek, so it often felt like we got preferential treatment over other trekkers. More than once, I spied Birman picking up rubbish along the trails and putting it in the nearest bin.
Our two porters Doulashin and Sunkumar were fantastic, always waiting for us with a smile at the end of the day's trek. There's no way we could have made it up and back without them.
Our package included some local sightseeing in Kathmandu before our trek to Everest. In addition, we had a few days once we'd returned from the mountain to relax and explore the local Balthali village and Bhaktapur areas. While we were somewhat exhausted from our journey up and down the mountain, this was a nice way to unwind after our long trek, and a welcome change to the dust and frantic activity of central Kathmandu.
I highly recommend TTG and Birman as your local trekking team and guide if you're planning a visit to Nepal. They're awesome.

Our guide, Hari, and porter Omesh, were very good at taking care of our needs on our 11 day trek. They were very organized and pleasant to be with.
We appreciated the use of the SteriPen to sterilize our drinking water - no plastic water bottles! We also appreciated Mr Shreehari's interest in a follow up meeting to hear about our experience on the trek. We would recommend this company.
