Pickup at hotel was scheduled for 9:30am and guide and driver arrived at 9:00am. Had previously requested combining Patan with two other sites as would be seeing Bhaktapur on another date. This was accommodated so that was nice. Really good driver and guide was helpful in Patan with requests. Only went into the main square of Patan and museum so wondered about other significant places to visit there. More info on history would be good. The next part of the tour was done by a walking tour in two villages and gives another perspective as was generally quiet with daily activities of residents. Finished before 2pm and returned to hotel before 3pm. Overall was an enjoyable tour.
