The one question usually asked "Should I go with or without a guide?" It never appear the importance on this issue until you face an emergency situation. In our case, we needed emergency rescue due to some AMS related issue. Our tour guide handed the situation with minimal hassle, pin-point accuracy and with great assurance to us. We are grateful to Odea Services for the well trained guide and his team of porters. To this, don't just get any tour agency, make sure it's Odea Services

I started my journey at the end of November and early December.. I had no idea about Nepal and I decided to come one day before flight and bought the tickets also luckily I met with the great person Devi according to a friend of mine. He immediately planned my trip and gave very good price!I was alone woman beeing in Nepal and he and his guides took care of me very well thus I never had any problem.. I stayed very nice hotels and did anything that I'm interested in. He organised everything in a second so that I got whatever I want on time.. . All the transfers and guides were very well and kind.You can trust him really! Odea Service Rocks!!

I cannot be more grateful to Devi and my guide Hem for giving me the opportunity to live out my dream and experience heaven on earth. They organized a trip for me to Everest Base Camp going through Gyoko Valley. Doing lots of research beforehand, I wanted to go with a company that I can trust and worth the value. What I didn't expect was how potentially dangerous this trek was and how you need an experienced guide and company that takes your safety as the top priority. I started getting bad headaches and extreme altitude sickness on my way up. At one point, I broke down crying because I was in so much pain and I didn't understand why I was the only one feeling so bad. Normal companies would have called helicopter rescue right away, even if my symptoms were not so severe (they get commissioned) but my guide, with his 15yrs in the mountains, monitored my condition moment by moment, gave me the appropriate medication at the right time and even threw me on his back to carry me to slightly lower altitude when I felt too weak to walk myself. In my head I came to the acceptance that the only way was down and there was no possible way I can ever get to base camp. I am so thankful that my guide did not give up on me even though I had. He did everything to take care of me and because of him, I started to gain my energy back and the headaches subsided. On day 9, I experienced one of the best days of my life. It was the day I reached base camp, I have never been so happy or proud of myself and I could never have accomplished this impossible goal without Devi and his team. You cannot see my face in the picture but trust me when I say that I have the biggest smile on.
It is important to note that even though Devi was not with me in the mountains, he took full responsibility for my well being and every precaution to make sure I was safe. He told me later that he had already contacted his friend who owned a helicopter company to be on standby to rescue me if I needed it. In the weeks leading up to the trip Devi was extremely responsive and answered all my annoying questions and made sure I was prepared with the right insurance and appropriate clothing. I cannot say enough positive things about him and my experience.
If you are reading this review, know that I was in your position a few months ago trying to decide which is the best company to go with with a million questions in my head, full of apprehension and excitement for my trip ahead. I can help save you time by telling you that Odea Services is your best choice and I give them my highest recommendation. You will receive the most professional service and personal, individualized care. In addition you can help support a local company that continuously gives back to its community.
Thank you, thank you Devi, Hem and Milan, you have gifted me with an adventure of a lifetime and you will be forever in my heart :D <3
