Rich and informative tour to the main sights of Kathmandu
, Feb 2020
This tour was very rich in terms of places we visited, cultural and historical information provided. Since I was alone in the tour (it was booked as a group tour), the very knowledgeable guide showed me lots of additional insights in Thamel and the center of Kathmandu before we continued with the main spots. We had a lunch at a restaurant with a great view over the Stupa.
Horrible Experience
, Jun 2019
1.The car is broken unexpectedly in the halfway. The guide ask us to walk on the street. The street is so dusty and very dangerous because lots of traffic. We walked more than 30 minutes under the sun. Hey, what’s point of having a air conditioned car? 2. The guide is not knowledgeable about the history of the palaces we are about to visit. What written in the Lonely Planet is way lot more than he knows. 3. The guide must have a rocket in his pants. He walked so quick and when visiting every nice monument, he kept pushing us to be quick, otherwise we would miss the next monument. Overall, not worth the money I spent for 2 people. You can save $140 by buying a Lonely Planet and hiring a personal driver & car instead. The guide name is Birodh. Be careful.
Excellent day
, May 2019
This is a very extensive tour of the highlights around Kathmandu. Birodh was a great guide with extensive knowledge of the sites visited, their history and significance to Nepalese culture. His easygoing style and excellent English made for an enjoyable and educational day. The tour has a significant spiritual element and Birodh’s in depth understanding of both Hindu and Buddhist customs was enlightening. Besides choosing a great lunch spot, he also got me in position to see the Kumari and explained how a little girl comes to be a revered living princess. Highly recommended tour and guide!

This tour is a great way to see the major sites on a time crunch. They are all highly recommended. I’m not giving it the full five stars because our tour guide apparently had a rocket in his pants that made it all but impossible for even the youngest and fittest of us to keep up with him.

This was fab. I was picked up at the hotel and had a guide, Birodh Burlakoti, who was great. We saw the two major Hindu and two major Buddhist shrines. We had lunch above Buddha Stupa. Birodh knew the information and history about all the sites. I was dropped off back at my hotel by 3:30. It was perfect for me. All I had to was show and Viator did the rest. I highly recommend!!

SUPER FUN DAY! I definitely recommend this tour! With this tour we got to see all the great highlights, because our tour guide, Birodh, had a great day planned for us. He was courteous, kind, knowledgable, funny and all of the other great things you would want in a tour guide. Plus Birodh is a great photographer!

The first day in new place is always hard and can be very nervous, but wit this city tour I felt almost like in the city of my friends. The guide Birodh very quick help me to find myself in new place and put his best commitment to make my time amazing and full of best memories. BR Lukas (Poland)
