BGuide and driver were on time in picking me up at my hotel at the scheduled time of 9 am. Actual itinerary was slightly different from the one described in Viator. My stops and sight admission fees that I paid were:
First stop Boudhanath Stupa 250 Rupees
Second stop Pashupatinath Temple 1000 Rupees
Third stop Kathmandu Durbar Square 1000 Rupees
Last stop Swayambhunath Temple 200 Rupees
While we stopped at the Boudhanath Stupa, we also visited an art school/handicraft store with an option to buy some souvenirs. Next to the Pashupatinath Temple, I saw several cremations in progress along the Bagmati River. We visited the Kumari house in Durbar Square hoping for a glimpse of the Kumari, the living goddess, but she did not make an appearance.
Tour was good and the guide spoke English quite well and knew the sights. Overall, it was a good introduction to 4 main sights of Kathmandu. Tour was about 5 hours long and I was back at my hotel by 2 pm.
I was hesitant to book this trip because there wasn't any previous reviews, but I'm glad I did. It was inexpensive and saw the four main sights around the city. Even my wife enjoyed it and she is hard to please. My tour guide Prashant was great! Wonderful experience. Good company to tour with.
