22 May 2014 The experience was amazing! I was the only person in the group and I had the opportunity to talk a lot with the guide. He was a very nice person how know everything about the culture of the city. I strongly reccomend this experience!
28 Dec 2013 Excellent tour with Rina! When she found out I was a teacher, she took us to see a small primary school in Patan - definitely appreciated the chance to see Nepal life off the beaten path.
20 Nov 2013 Omez, our guide, was excellent. He took the time we wanted at each site, had lots of interesting stories and knowledge to impart and took us on some interesting routes. Mainly walking and local transit lets you see things the way locals do. Another great Urban Adventure.
15 Aug 2013 Rina, our guide was really knowldgeable and added a few special touches to the tour like going through little streets that most tourists never see, stopping by local fruits and veggies markets only frequented by locals, talking about Nepali cooking, and offering us some delicious Bhaktapur king yogurt. She even stopped by a pharmacy when we said we needed bandaids and coughing mix... She was very helpful and gave us sufficient time to have a closer look by ourselves. It was great.
02 Jun 2013 Had a great time in Chitwan rainforest; the guides from the the resort were excellent. Food @ the resort was fabulous & the staff was so accommodating I felt like I was given 5 star treatment! I also booked a nite tour of Kathmandu as I was only there for 2 nites & the guide was fab! I never would have been able to see and understand so much on my own in such a short time.
03 Dec 2012 I was the only participant on this adventure. Two guides accompanied me and it was a great experience. I learned about birds, scenery and local customs.
