    Great trip, improvement on exceptions needed

      |   Chris_van_Baal, Netherlands

    We booked a Mount Everest Base Camp trekking at Top of the World. The Itinerary was very clear and the price was good. The trip itself was amazing. Our guide Pasang helped us with everything and showed us around the Khumbu region. So the experience of the trekking itself was almost flawless. The only downside experienced with Top of the World was at the end. When we wanted to return our airline company did not had flights left for that day. Since we had an open ticket it wouldn’t be an problem to book a new ticket and ask for a refund for the original, according to the employee that picked us from the airport on behalf of Top of the World. Back in Kathmandu we had the biggest trouble to get a full refund from Top of the World. According to the owner the price printed on the ticket was not the amount we could get back. The refund amount varied from 50% to 90%. After lots of quarreling we accepted a $30 loss on our refund. This issues could have been solved with more elegance by Top of the World.
