This tour was excellent. When I think of all the things we did while in Kathmandu, the images from this tour are the ones I remember first. Walking the streets and taking a local "bus taxi", took us out of our comfort zone and gave us an incredible insight to what a day in the life of a local is. Pashupatinath Temple with the Sadhu monks and the cremations across river, are both unforgettable visions. Because it was a holiday, there was lots of activity at the Bodhnath stupa. No matter where you looked it was a scene worthy of a postcard. High recommend this tour.

One of the best tours we did. Did not expect this tour to be that good. Kathmandu is an awesome city and you get to see it when everything is quiet in the morning and when its pumping during the day.

Nice friendly local guide. Be prepared for a lot of walking. You also catch a local taxi but which is an experience in itself. You get a good over view of each of the temples. Its not a huge group of people on the tour just how many you book with so it is very personal. The guide was willing to answer any questions.

I did a very nice walking tour around KTM Durbar square, got in the palace and was explained the history and the rituals of Hinduism Buddhism. Then got on Swayambunath. Local home was not open due to national festival days (Dassa), so I went with my guide to a local restaurant for some bhat dhal n meat. The best of your services was my guide an amazing person. Overall I think your tour was overpriced. I had a great tour with a great guide but I don't think the cost for you setting it up and arranging local ties would have been so high to require such a high price. Given especially that I didnt go to a local home to cook, but I went to a restaurant as the home was not available due to holiday.
