      The coordinators are extremely helpful. They go to extra lengths for helping you in figuring out where do you want to go and will be there with you at every step whenever you need them. Amazing service, I wanted to book a last minute ticket, I didn't think I'd get any good treks, but they sorted me out. Highly recommended.

      'Booked the Kedarkantha Trek with The Great Next and had an absolutely great experience. Everything from the booking process to the actual trek went extremely smoothly. The guides were extremely supportive and motivating. They made sure that we made it to the summit even though the weather was bad. The food too was great for mountain standards- how they managed to serve deserts like Gulab Jamun at the altitude of 10,000 feet will always be a mystery to me. Looking forward to my next adventure with the TGN Team!'

Thanks Harshal ans Venkat for making this a memorable experience. Cheers!

      I've had an amazing and smooth experience with the great next since my first trek in Uttrakhand. The great next aggregates the best experiences from multiple qualified and safe partners, so they always have multiple options. In terms of pricing i've had cheaper rates than the actual trip organizer. From bungee jumping in Nepal to trekking in snow in Uttrakhand, it has been all smooth for me till now. I will take a moment to thank Harshal for being my go to person for planning solo travels. He goes out of his way to ensure that I experience the best wherever i'm travelling, even if he doesn't have a partner organizer in the region he gives his honest recommendations. So don't hesitate to give them a call if you're looking for something off beat or adventurous.

      'We availed the services of TGN in Dec, 2018 for our trek to Kuari Pass. I must say it was a lovely experience like all the pervious ones (Valley of flowers, Hampta Pass, Kedarkahtha) we have had with TGN. We were extremely impressed with the stay at Josimath. Himalayan Abode is surely an amazing place to stay, all the rooms have tastefully done interiors and the service is really homely and top notch. Coming to the trek itself it was a lovely trek made better by the able guide provided to us and the stay in the tents at the hills was also comfortable with friendly people managing the services. Would like to give a special thanks to Venkat who has been my point of contact at TGN, for all the treks I have booked. It's always comforting to know that he would be able to come up with the best trekking options available.... '

      the service is good and the payment process is smooth. but they are just aggregators and you will be pooled to other service providers. I need to go on long treks to experience more about The Great Next services

      Very well organised. Ours was a last minute request but they were very helpful in arranging it seamlessly. The entire trek was very smooth. What was promised was delivered. The food could have been better but I am not complaining. On the whole a great experience.

      'We travelled to Joshimath, Valley of Flowers, Hemkund, Badrinath, Auli thr them. The destinations are extremely beautiful and must visit. However service of the tour operator was very average. The guide was not organised and cleanliness in the hotels were much wanting. Timeliness was also an area of improvement.'

      Pathetic experience. They are broker they dont do anything . These guys just do the tie up with local treakking group who are responcible for all the activitites. They tie up with cheaper treakking group and they provide worst quality of food, worst tent, worst and dirty sleeping bags .

      TGN has a very sophisticated and concise web page along with many optional details and information. This is one of the few sites that provides information about the operator. All the operators they recommend are safe, well-trained and reliable. They are easily accessible and offer reasonable deals. I've booked a trekking and river rafting trip with them already, and it was a very good experience. I'll always choose The Great Next to plan my adventure trips.

      'The Great next is a great platform to discover, explore and book some of the best trails and treks nature has to offer! Although our trek group was managed by the amazing 'Renok adventures' , it was the great next that put us through to them. Thank you !'
