What people are saying about Bhaktapur

What a wonderful experience! The journey from Day 1 to Day 3 was just majestic. Ramesh is an incredible and knowledgeable guide. He provided with me helpful information and guidance. The tour company is very lucky to have someone like Ramesh. I still had my own time and privacy for the 3 day adventure. I’ve made good friends, ate good food and saw amazing sights. I’m so glad to I did this activity. If you don’t have enough time, I recommend doing this, but for sure come back to Nepal to do more activities. Thank you Anu and Ramesh.

It was a nice well organised short trip. I loved the hotels and the rooms that were arranged for me. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. The transportation was well organised and on time. The company hired free lancer guides for the city tours. One star less because I didn’t enjoy the guides which made my experience less pleasant.
