    I highly recommend the tour. My guide Subash is very helpful and informative. It was very interesting experience. Driver Ravi was patient and nice. One of the best days in Kathmandu!

    This is an excellent tour especially if like us you have limited time and want to see as much as possible. Our guide, Prastan, had an amazing depth of knowledge which further enhanced the experience. While the tour has a busy schedule, Prastan was happy to adjust to our pace, and we were given time at each stop to wander alone and explore. It was also lovely to have our driver ready at each stop, no hanging around and no hassle. I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about Kathmandu and felt it represented very good value. I’ve learned a lot and I’ve been inspired to learn more.

    Today me and my friend had an amazing experience with Prasant as our guide. We visited all the sights listed as he gave as in depth description into the history and meaning of the sights located and their relation to both the Hindu and Buddhist culture. I could not recommend hiring a tour guide for Kathmandu from this company enough. It was both far more affordable than doing it by yourself as well as a more in depth experience. I have never written a review on trip-advisor before but the experience was far too good not to

    We took this tour. The guide Subash was great! Very knowledgeable, and put our needs and happiness first. The car and guide arrive on time. We went to the four UNESCO sites as advertised. Subash went out his way to make us comfortable and satisfied. The traffic was quite bad, so it took longer time than expected to get the sites. He assured us no worry about the time limit. He made sure we saw all the major highlights at each site. He is very honest and helpful. We are quite happy with this tour.

    I highly recommend this tour for anyone who has one day to see the highlights of Kathmandu. Our guide Preshant and our driver Ravi took us to the best sites of the city and explained in detail along the way the culture of Nepal and history of all sites. Thank you!

    Dipesh Had a great day with Dipesh Very knowledgeable and helpful Would recommend to anyone visiting Kathmandu

  • 07-Dec-2022

    Dipesh did a great job showing us around Kathmandu and navigating the busy streets. He gave us the background without going too much into detail and allowed time for us to take pictures at each location. Highly recommend.

  • 07-Dec-2022

    Dipesh was very kind and welcoming. He did a great job taking us to all the places. I appreciate the background he gave us at each site and taking the time to answer our questions. I have come away more educated and enlightened as to Nepal and the beautiful culture of Nepalese people. Very grateful to have him as our guide. I highly recommended him!

  • 05-Dec-2022

    Fantastic way to see and navigate all Kathmandu’s sites at your own pace. Having your own driver and guide is a real plus for a city that I found rather chaotic, yet charming. My guide was friendly and attentive and willing to listen to my preferences. Would definitely recommend this tour.
