    We did this tour the day after the sunrise tour, and it was a great choice! Rahgu picked us up at the hotel and took us to Bhaktapur Durbar Square, where he gave a wonderful history lesson, and plenty of time to explore ourselves. We didn't take as long as we could have, and we didn't eat lunch (because we had eaten lunch at the hotel), so we ended up having a decent amount of time to kill up at Nagarkot. But Rahgu gave us plenty of information, clarified some questions we had from the day before, and, generally, was a wonderful host! The ride back to our hotel was made even better by the sight of so many homes decorated for Diwali! It was like whole neighborhoods decorated for Christmas in the US.

    Amazing experience with the guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Showed us to all parts of the temple and the shopping areas.

    Had a great walk on tour. Would have been better if it did not rain and was not able to see the sunset.

    Seeing Bhaktapur is worth a visit. Tour guide 'Rajat' was very friendly, a powerful communicator, well-organized, and has in-depth knowledge. After heading to Nagarkot, enjoy your beer at the sunset.

    We had the most memorable family tour with Nagarkot Sunset tour. We felt everything was great, our guide Mr. Rajat and driver truly cared about us which was amazing. They did their best to make the trip remarkable. This journey was something we will cherish for many years to come. We will cherish the comfort and beauty of Bhaktapur and temples, we learned the history from our competent guide. later on he took us to buy local Pashmina Shawls, famous wooden home decorative items & etc. It was one of the best trips in our life.

    Fantastic tour. A very knowleable tour guide. Sunset views are fantastic. Professionalism and puncticulaty are commendables. Prepare yourself to very bad roads. You will have fantastic body massage caused by the car. Also attention to the cold weather although the temperature was around 6 deg. C.

    I had a great experience overall with this tour. I was contacted prior to arrival to confirm my pick up location and time of pick up which made me feel comforted as I was arriving for the first time in a new country by myself, all through messaging via trip advisor. When I arrived to Nepal I purchased a SIM with plenty of data (under 4 dollars) and messaged the tour guide via trip advisor to pass along my Nepali number. The tour guide called me again 15 minutes before pick up and was there on time waiting for me outside my Air BnB. The driver and tour guide were very friendly and made me comfortable. When we arrived in Bhaktapur, myself and the guide walked around the ancient city. He lives in Bhaktapur and obviously knew the sites and it’s history very well. He did help wave off a few people trying to sell things or ask you for money (with the exception of some school children who I was happy to give a few rupees too, in which I received a certificate for my small donation, I am a teacher and I like to do this, all my choice). Besides the main tourist sites, we also went to a traditional art school (my choice to go) where I purchased a beautiful painting. We also visited a wood carving museum (free entry, and no one asking you to purchase anything after). We also went to a local shop where the guide bought me some of Bhaktapur’s famous yogurt. After a few hours in Bhaktapur we went back to our driver and car, who was waiting for us, and continued to drive to Nagarkot. Going up to Nagarkot, we stopped at a few look out places to take pictures. When we arrived to the top it started to rain (I did go during the rainy season and was well aware that it may rain or be cloudy blocking mountain views). After going to the view points I decided I wanted to go back before sunset as it was raining. Nagarkot was still beautiful to experience, the villages you pass through and beautiful scenery was worth the trip alone, with or without snowcapped Himalayan views. After leaving Nagarkot I was brought back to my AirBnB just after dark. Overall, I had a great experience with my tour, the sites I saw, the tour guide and driver. I would recommend this tour to any traveller who likes t have things planned and booked in advance and sent confirmations to make them feel comfortable.

    We had a great time on this tour! Our guide was helpful and fun. I feel like we got a lot packed into one day. Bhaktapur was gorgeous, though it was sad seeing all of the damage done by the earthquake. The view from the tower at Nagarkot was fantastic!
