We chose Pemba as our guide and it was the best decison we have ever made!! Pemba met us at our Hotel in Kathmandu and we instantly knew we were going to get along like a house on fire.With a great big smile and a hug,we were put at ease. Pemba went through our gear and told us what we needed and didnt need. Then we went shopping for our medication and supplies and Pemba took care of it all. Transport to airport was there waiting for us the next morning and Pemba presented us with a personally handmade necklace(forgot the correct name sorry) made of the native Nepalese flowers,a brilliant touch! Pemba done absolutely everything for us during the checkin at the airport, he made it so easy. All the way throughout our trip to and from everest base camp,Pemba would be constantly checking on our well being,always laughing, making jokes and dancing,not very well though! EmojiPemba would organise accomodation, take our order for meals,everything which we didnt expect but was very much apreciated. When times were tough he would lift your spirits and get you through the day and make sure you had anything you needed once you arrived at your Teahouse. I could keep typing all day about Pemba but i dont want him to get a big headEmoji! We are Brothers forever after what we acomplished together,truly a remarkable human being. One last thing,if you are female,solo or more,i would totally recommend Pemba. Have heard some females struggled with their guides ,not talking much etc.You wont have any problems with Pemba. Such a fun loving person,you will have a great time and be well looked after. We would honestly never use another guide other than Pemba and i truly mean that. Love ya My Brother!

We were so lucky we booked our trek to travel with Pemba. He met us at our hotel the day before departure to go through the itinerary and to give us some advice on what to expect and some recommendations for last minute purchases to make the trip more comfortable. Once we started Pemba took care of everything! It didn't matter if it was helping by holding a bag or water bottle while we adjust our packs or encouraging us to take as many breaks as we needed. He always looked after us first & when we arrived in camp he ensured we were served our food first and had our choice of rooms. He happily took photos for us and knew exactly when to chime in and help and when to give us some space. When other trekkers saw how friendly, helpful & knowledgeable Pemba was we were actually offered money to swap guides. (There are some mediocre guides read reviews and choose carefully) and on many occasions other trekkers were asking Pemba for help and advice instead of their own guide. Let me put it this simply - If you're going to go on a trek if you want the best guide, book Pemba.
