Kathmandu is the history-filled capital of Nepal, a picturesque city packed with world-renowned historical and cultural sights. From sacred temples to ornate palaces and bustling royal squares, top attractions are spread out among different neighborhoods, but you tick off the highlights in a single outing during this tour. Hotel or airport pickup makes for a hassle-free experience, while a small group means plenty of time for questions.

We were in Nepal days before its borders closed. Our guide Birodh was fantastic and even accommodated our need to get to an airline office to check our flights back to Oz. The tour we had was extended to accommodate our lack of access to Bhutan. Outfitter Nepal were excellent in this regard and we were able to experience the Annapurna Himalayan views via a trip to Pokhara. Birodh was amazing with his encouragement,knowledge and familiarity with village life. We cannot speak highly enough of him. Birodh is a key asset for Outfitter. We loved Nepal .

I only had one free day during a busy visit to Nepal to allow me to see as much of Kathmandu as possible. I booked this tour in advance and was very satisfied. The tour guide was excellent and was able to answer our questions proficiently. Please note that you should have some local currency with you to pay for entry to the different sites and for lunch - allow US$50.

I took this tour 2 days ago to get familiar with Kathmandu. My guide, Birodh Burlakoti, was excellent. Hi is very knowledgeable, and told us some insightful stories and and enlightening information as well as important facts. He is a caring and dedicated young man who obviously loves Nepal and helping others get to know his wonderful country.

A really enjoyable tour of the city with the focus on the four main interesting locations.
My guide Sabita Khanal was excellent. She arrived with the driver on time. We spent the perfect amount of time in each location. Sabita was professional, knowledgable and friendly - the perfect guide. As a solo traveller she assisted me by taking numerous photos for and of me at locations.
She assisted me in various gift purchases ensuring I always got a very good deal.
I thoroughly recommend this City Tour for anyone - but particularly for those (like me) with limited amount of free time in Kathmandu.
Thank you Outfitter Nepal. 5 Stars!

The tour is great if you have limited time in Kathmandu. Our tour guide was professional at all times and very knowledgeable on the attractions she took us too.

As stated above; if you have limited time in Kathmandu, book this trip.
