Super competent and friendly guide, I enjoyed the tour, learning a lot of new facts about Kathmandu, the religions in Nepal and the daily life. Pick up on time and he also dropped me off at the hotel. Highly recommend

I learned so much from my guide, Madan Sakota. The city’s history. The cultures. Shrines. I now have a better understanding of Kathmandu and Nepal. Madan was such a pleasant and knowledgeable person. The perfect guide. Great experience!
