Patan and Bhaktapur Tour

4.7 33 reviews | 400+ Booked
In Kathmandu Valley are three ancient cities, once independently ruled by their respective Malla kings: Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. In this day trip, visit Patan and Bhaktapur, home to cultural UNESCO World Heritage Sites that hark back to Nepal's rich past. You'll learn to appreciate Patan's name in Sanskrit, Lalitpur, which means ‘City of Living Art.' (Hint: it's home to the valley's finest sculptors and craftsmen.) Over in Bhaktapur, experience what it's like to wade slowly back in time, with streets and architecture retaining their olden, brickmade charm. All throughout, pay close attention to their shared religious heritage. Of Buddhist and Hindu backgrounds, both Patan and Bhaktapur are wealthy with temples, shrines, idols and sculptures in honor of their gods – giving you an endless count of sights over which to marvel.

What people are saying about Museums in Kathmandu

This was the highlight of our cultural trip to Nepal. Our tour guide, Ram, was the best! He was our tour guide the previous day in our Kathmandu tour and he has become a friend and family. Our six-year old daughter has fond memories of him. The ride going to these cities was smooth, thanks to our driver. If you are into arts and history, Patan and Baktaphur will leave you in awe. This tour is definitely one for the books and is highly recommended.

Our trip was supposed to be scheduled on feb 23, day after our mountain flight, but since it was moved, I immediately contacted klook if we could have this patan and bhaktapur trip instead and they agreed! This trip has made us appreciate nepal’s history as well as their culture. Their art is really amazing! A must too if you are in nepal.

This was one of my best day during my Nepal trip. If I did not buy this tour, I would regret it badly. Of course, I could definitely retrieve all the information from LP and follow the route from the guidebook, but having the guide with you is thousand times better! Ram explained me all the details regarding both towns. All the architectures, wood carvings and statues have their own ancient history behind, and these are all the things you couldn’t find from the book. The guide didn’t seem to be annoyed with me at all when I asked him tons of questions. Also, he was quite nice by asking me to have photos of myself every spot we stopped by as I am a solo traveler. Don’t forget to ask him to take you to have tasty Juju Dhau in Bhaktapur, so your trip could be ended deliciously and happily! 😉

This tour was the highlight of my 3-day Nepal break. Mr. Shree, my guide, came early and we beat the other tourists to the heritage sites. He knows the back alleys and was very informative. He speaks really good English and is a renowned guide in Nepal. We visited off-the-beaten track temples and through his guidance, a personal tour by Mr. Ram himself was provided in The Peacock Shop—its paper factory, the devotional room, and his collection of woodcarving displays (those done by himself included). This tour had a personal touch to it, with interaction with the locals. Highly recommended. 👍🏼

A must-do tour for anyone visiting Nepal and wanting to get acquainted with its rich history! Minor cons were failure to provide light refreshments and not indicating in the details that the tour guide’s lunch will actually be shouldered by the guest. But it’s fine as my guide was awesome, and he met me straight at my hotel (I didn’t need to go to the assembly place). He also took me to other interesting places that were not in the itinerary. By the way, I wish this tour is available for solo travelers without purchasing it for 2 persons. Perhaps adding a surcharge may work..? Despite that, this tour still deserves 5 stars.
