I thoroughly enjoyed this very informative tour. The professional and friendly tour guide spoke good English and shared a wealth of knowledge about the objects of visit, and the overall culture and history of Nepal, and also answered any questions that I had. Just as described in the activity description I also had time to explore on my own which made the tour also relaxed. Hotel pick up and drop off happened timely and car was comfortable. As a solo traveller I found that this tour gave me the opportunity to see important landmarks comfortably and gain of insight about Kathmandu and Nepal. Highly recommended.

Great tour for first-timers in KTM. The car and Rabin, our driver, were top-notch. Rabin knows who to move around town and he is always happy to give us refreshments after every stop the car has a wi-fi connection Bhim as our tour guide was savvy about KTM, giving us incredible facts about the city, World Heritage, and sacred places.
