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.
A nice hike through the Shivapuri national park, to reach the beautiful monastery Nagi Gumba near the peak of Shivapuri hill. A hike down from the other side of the mountain. I went mid-October it was very sunny, remember to get some sunscreen. Guide was definitely an expert knowing the path very well. Prepare for the local transport to and fro it is a bit crammy. All in all worth doing if you haven't got too many days to do a proper trek.
