    Trip of a life time
    We (me and my wife) booked the 90 minutes flight with Eyes on Nepal online. Unfortunately, we could not fly because of the bad weather. Without any extra charges, they postponed this trip following on our request. But we had great flight the next day.

    Eyes on Nepal customer service is superb and provided us all the information about the trip. We did not have to worry about pick up and drop off services. Everything was arranged on time. Their customer care is above our expectation. Thank you for arranging nice trip and we will surely use them for our next trip to Nepal.
