    The tour was really seamless. We were picked up from our hotel and got dropped off after the tour. We were amazed by the places and the different UNESCO world heritage sites. It was very informative and the tour guide - Ram provided insightful information and gave us historical facts about Nepal. Overall, the tour was really worth it! Highly recommended tour for travelers planning to explore the beauty of Kathmandu.

    One of the best klook activities that we availed. Ram was an excellent tour guide as we have learned so many things about the 4 UNESCO world heritage sites that we visited. Great job!

    Ram has been super fantastic in giving insights of the tour. Ensure u have a pair of strong feet. Do request the guide to sample some street snack if possible 👍

    Kathmandu was quite dusty at this time of the year, so you may need to wear a mask in case you’re sensitive/allergic to dust. The tour indicates light refreshments will be served, but this didn’t happen. For a Filipino citizen (or probably any non-SAARC citizen), the entrance fees (which are not inclusive of the tour price) are as follows: Swayambhunath - 200 NPR Kathmandu Durbar Square - 1000 NPR Boudhanath - 400 NPR Pashupatinath Temple - 1000 NPR Lunch wasn’t also inclusive as stated in the tour, but I didn’t expect I’d also shoulder the tour guide’s lunch (it’s OK for me though – just letting others know this is the case). Pashupatinath shouldn’t be just an optional destination. It’s actually the part of the tour that I realized a lot of fascinating things I didn’t know about Hinduism. That’s all thanks to my tour guide for the info. In general, this is a nice tour to get to know Kathmandu in details.

    Everything is very good! The trip was amazing! The tour guide showed us many things more then the itinerary! He was kind and brilliant!

    Ram is responsive and guided us well for the 4 places. Car is comfortable and clean (by Nepal standards). No hard selling of any sort. Ram is passionate about what he does. I enjoyed the tour very much. One thing for other travellers is that you need to walk alot for this guide, so be well prepared!

    Klook mentioned here that I have the options to be picked up by a rickshaw before 830am to the meeting place but what happened is that I was droped off to Hyatt Hotel Kathmandu to wait for the guide. it's already 10 am when they arrived. ive waited for 1.5 hours without any information or heads up even a message or call 1 day before that confirming my tour. other tours I have booked with klook before is that they always inform the customer by message or email 1 day or a night before the activity. I thought that the tour will not push through but at last after waiting 1.5 hours, the guide picked us up. The tour guide Sam was nice and friendly. he told us that he's really sorry because they had difficulty in getting a vehicle for our transportation.

    Fascinating look at the important temples at Kathmandu. Although Durbar Square has been impacted by the many earthquakes that the country has suffered, it is still worthwhile to explore the place for its strong historical significance.

    Highlight of this tour was that boudhanath stupa. Had lunch there, and bought some souvenirs that I was not able to buy elsewhere (cute little Nepalese traditional costumes!) Our guide, ram brought us up to eat at a cafe which had a really good view of the stupa. (Look at my picture!) We also went to Durbar Square. During our time there, our guide Ram shared lots of insights and stories (learnt about the living goddess!). Also, I bought a traditional Nepalese chess game there and it was interesting. Overall, a good trip!
