  • This tour was perfect! I took the private half day tour on my last day in Nepal. My guide Mr. Bishnu arrived on time. He explained the history and background in great detail. He took the time to make sure I understood what he was saying. I did not feel rushed at all as I was the only one on the tour. Originally I was not going to book the tour but go it alone. I know now that would have been a great mistake.
