Me and my sister had a fantastic day out at panauti and bhaktapur. We were really impressed with our guide Deepa's knowledge of the history of Nepal, hinduism and buddhism and thoroughly enjoyed her company. It seems royal mountain travel really care about the environment and we were very pleasantly surprised to be picked up in a very comfortable electric car to get driven between the locations. We have been on other guided tours in Nepal but learned much more on this one than any others. Thank you for an amazing last day in nepal before our journey home!

This trip to two ancient places in the Kathmandu valley is highly recommended. The squares and temples are amazing. Especially when you have Dilip as your guide. It seems that he knows a lot about the Nepali history, can answer any question. Very pleasant, nice guy.

I loved the day trip - full of surprises and good thoughts, and a delicious lentil flour pancake. Januja and the driver and the electric car were wonderful. Thank you.

Great daytrip

I took this daytrip to escape from the noise of Kathmandu and Thamel, and it was awesome. My guide was very accomodating and he was explaining the different places and buildings as we went. The only cons is that it's more a half day trip and I would have liked to spend more time visting Bhaktapur. I really recommend doing this if you are in kathmandu and want a more quiet experience.

Mohini was my guide for this adventure and I am as impressed by her knowledge and as by her unflagging enthusiasm. The information about the sites was detailed and provided with context. I was also impressed that the car used for transport was an electric vehicle. I was happy to hear that the tour company is concerned about the environment. I highly recommend this tour!

Great trip into the hilly countryside and out of the busy capital!

I decided to walk instead of asking to get picked up to meet my guide and driver. It turned out that I was the only one who booked the tour so it was just me! My guide explained that we would go to Panauti first about 35 kilometers away then Bhaktapur. It was rice harvesting season so I got to see the locals spreading the rice grains out to dry. We had lunch with a great view in Bhaktapur - local Nepalese food! Be mindful that they include a 10% + 13% tax in addition to your order. I went mid-October so the weather was great and I got some wonderful photos. My guide explained the history of the sites, temples, Hindu gods, etc. but he was naturally very soft spoken so sometimes I did not hear or understand what he said but he was very patient and repeated the information when I asked. He never rushed me to view a sight and went at my pace. Towards the end of the day I realized that we were running late but I did not feel rushed by him - I just felt bad for taking long since I asked a lot of questions and took a lot of photos. Overall I am very satisfied with the tour and recommend it to anyone looking to leave the capital and see some of the beautiful hilly landscape of the valley!

This tour is amazing value and Kalpana our guide was exceptional. She was very knowledgeable in terms or history and culture, promoting grassroots tourism with an emphasis on the empowerment of women in business. The sights visited were wonderful. I would definitely recommend this tour without hesitation.
