Some friends and I went on a 5 day trek to Poon hill with Freedom’s guide Nirmal. The trek itself was beautiful, more wonderful than I had imagined it would be. But the company made us feel relaxed and looked after, and also made sure we got what we wanted from our trip. I say the company, because everyone has been brilliant, but it was our guide, Nirmal, arranged everything perfectly, despite our last minute booking.

Just to say a bit about Nirmal, because he deserves it, he was a fantastic guide, better than we could have asked for. He was attentive to our safety, really knowledgeable, and throughout the trek we felt like we were in safe hands. He was also great fun. pointing out things we wouldn’t have noticed ourselves, teaching us card games, and generally making sure our trip was really memorable.

About Freedom, now I’m back I’m really really glad we booked with them, because they go to a lot of effort to make sure their guides are not only trained to standards expected, but also make sure they all have first aid training and medical training suitable for trekking. They also care about the environment and the local community, and I loved the passion they had when they told me all about it.

I definitely would book again and would recommend them to anyone.
