    Great tour! The guide was knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time at each stop. Got some great pictures!

    We enjoyed Kathmandu city half day tour. The guide was very informative. We learned quite a bit about Nepal in 5 hours We were able to visit 4 main places in Kathmandu. Entrance fees were unexpectedly expensive to me (I was in Nepal 20 years ago and I did remember I paid such amount). Visiting 4 places cost 2600 NRP/person. Just prepare for that. The guide speaks English very well. We learned a lot from him about Kathmandu history. Thank you.

    Excellent way to see the 4 UNESCO Heritage sites in a half day.
    Our guide, Neeraj, is a long time local and gave us an excellent commentary of the sites.
    The day was a total winner.

    I spent an amazing afternoon seeing the UNESCO World Heritage sites around Kathmandu. Neeraj and my driver picked me up at my hotel and took me around town. Neeraj shared his insights and ideals about Buddhism and took me to his favorite places in the city. I liked that he introduced me to a place then gave me the freedom to explore on my own with a time to meet back up with him. It was an afternoon of great conversation and intriguing sites of the areas of Kathmandu that I couldn't have found on my own. I will definitely use this company again!
