    Wonderful 2-day tour near Kathmandu for nature and culture lovers

    I went on a private tour organised by Arjun Pandey. The guide was Deepak. It was a 2-day tour starting with a private car from Kathmandu to Sankhu. From there we walked to Nagarkot, stayed the night, and walked to Changu Narayan. From there we were picked up by the private car and visited Bhaktapur, then returned to Kathmandu. It was beautiful, the guide was friendly, flexible and knowledgeable. I had no worries. Everything was organised smoothly. I felt they cared about my well-being and ensuring I had the best possible experience. Warmly recommended! Easy walk for nature and culture lovers.
