    Highly recommended! The trip started with a ride to Nagarkot with a beautiful view of the Lantang mountain range. Then it was a very nice hike to Changu Narayan Temple. Beautiful place and beautiful views on your way. Pradip - our tour guide made this hike enjoyable and relaxing.

    Super . I was lucky to get very professional both a guide and a driver. A guide, Pradip, is a gem of this company. Fantastic personality, encyclopedic knowledge.
    Recommend to book.

    Although Pradip is a very interested guide and made the most to assure a quality hike, the weather conditions weren't the most suitable to appreciate the natural landscape. I can't help feeling it was a bit overpriced...

    This trip was great. It was worth going up to the mountains and walking down through the hills and seeing how village people live. I would recommend this tour.

    Amazing day with Pradip! His knowledge on every aspect of Nepal and the day to day life of its people is great and he is happy to share it. The knowledge he imparted at the temple was great. Fantastic hike with stunning views. The private aspect of this tour is so nice! Highly recommend.

    If you are looking to experience the culture of rural Nepal while burning some calories, I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Pradip, was amazing. He hiked according to our pace, and took the time to ensure we had the best possible experience. Pradip was very attentive to our interests and was able to tell how much I love animals especially goats. He went above and beyond and asked the local farmers if I could pet and hold their baby goats. It was such an awesome experience. He let us swing on a handmade swing made out of bamboo. That was a lot of fun. Pradip was more than willing to take pictures of us and even knew how to use a higher quality camera, Canon EOS Digital DSLR. He was such an awesome guide and I would definitely booking this tour.

    Great day hiking through Nagarkot. The peaceful hike, the guide's knowledge, the beautiful landscape: All of it was superb. I'll absolutely do this again on my next visit to the valley.

    This was by far the BEST I've ever had. Kalpana is an excellent guide with very extensive knowledge about local culture and she will be more than happy to anwser any of your questions. After the tour I felt I learned more in the span of 4 hours than during my entire stay in Nepal. HIGHLY recommended if you want to see all the best places in Kathmandu!

    The trip was expensive by Nepalese standards but overall very good and I would do it again without hesitation. The guide was well informed and spoke fluent English. We saw rural farming villages during a long downhill hike. It is unlikely a tourist would get this view of Nepal on his own. Lunch was included but do not do the trip for the food. Dealing with the tour company was easy.
