                                    Una gran agencia!

                                    La verdad, que estamos muy contentos con los servicios del Gokul, sobretodo nos ha gustado mucho lo atento que ha estado durante todo el viaje por si teníamos problemas. Uno de nosotros perdió el pasaporte y gracias a sus gestiones pudimos recuperarlo, le estamos muy agradecidos. El trato ha sido muy amable, si nunca volvemos a hacer algo en Nepal, no dudaremos en contactar con el. El precio de la escalada al Island Peak ha estado muy correcto por lo que hemos podido comparar con otras personas que nos hemos encontrado. En resumen, una gran agencia!
