    Informative, succinct and great trip providing insights into this fascinating culture. Ram had a warm, approachable personality and allowed us to take in everything at a relaxed and manageable pace. Great for a broadstrokes overview of the UNESCO sites and Kathmandu.

    What a wonderful way to spend a day in Katmandu! Shanti was so knowledgeable and I felt so taken care of the whole day. It was so easy to have a ride and guide for the day all set up and to visit all the most beautiful spots in the city.

    My husband and I really enjoyed our trip! My favorite part was the walk through the village. Shishir was great and very enthusiastic.

    This tour was amazing! The guide and driver were both helpful and friendly. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the culture, religion, and history of Bhaktapur and Panauti. I highly recommend getting out of Kathmandu and seeing these Durbar Squares!

    We’d arrived in Nepal with not much prepared and after a couple days of exploring Kathmandu and the many busy areas, we were excited to find something that took us away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Communication prior to the day was first class, with good English spoken and clear instructions provided. Our guide, Shanti was exceptional and we were very impressed with the amount of knowledge she had about the history of Nepal and the many highlights along the adventure.

    She was welcoming and went above and beyond to ensure we had the best possible day, even recommending other places to visit during our stay.

    We’d definitely recommend booking this day trip, just make sure you check the weather beforehand as views can be impeded by the fog/clouds. However we were very lucky and managed to see some stunning scenery.

    I spend my time in the Kathmandu Valley. It was a great time where the team showed me religion, culture and tradition of this beautiful country. I want to give my heart full thanks to the entire team who provided an excellent service while being always flexible to serve my changing ideas. All trips and tours I did were awesome. Special thanks to my guide Jamuna who provided a lot of details. Namaste!

    My favorite part was the meal after the trip. Lol
    Joking. It was really fun but exhausting lol. Going uphill to see changunaryan and the temples. Really nice view from a local coffee shop. I had ginger tea and really tastes good. You just need to put sugar since no honey for me:)
    Its was fun and realy informative with the help of hemant. Thank you for the help! I would love to come back!! Thank you trip advisor:)))

    Oh and btw the monkey temple is my 2nd favorite!!:)))

    Dipesh was my guide again to these beautiful sites. Similar to Kathmandu but architecture exquisitely detailed. Break Free Adventures was amazing with allowing Dipesh to be my guide again.

    I had limited time and so I made the choice to see the city again on a "standard" tour.. Surprisingly I was not disappointed. I have been five trips to Kathmandu and seeing the same sites is not boring. I especially like the reconstruction at places that have not recovered from the earthquake. Dip and the gang will make you happy on a one day visit or a month long visit. I recommend!

    I spent 3 days touring Kathmandu City and Kathmandu Valley with Himalayan Planet Tours. They were a wonderful group to see this city and area with. I did this tour on my second day. After the hustle and bustle of the city centre it was wonderful to get out to these two fabulous UNESCO World Heritage Sites!! We went to Patan first - it was wonderful ! Every angle was picture perfect - postcard scenes !! Then we went to Bhaktapur.... so beautiful that several weddings were being held there ! Again picture perfect !! My wonderful tour guide (Som B) shared a wealth of knowledge over 3 days and always answered my questions fully. I also want to commend my driver ( Suman T) who kept my possessions safe while I toured with Som and allowed me to feel safe in an area of thousands of hectic drivers!! These two were a great team who always arrived early and ensured my safe return at the end of each day - they went above and beyond. Special Note: I was touring when the Virus CoV19 changed the world and this team and the CEO of the Himalayan Planet (Nabaraj T) assisted getting me out of the country amid chaos and confusion. They went above and beyond providing me assistance. KNOW you are in GOOD HANDS when you tour with this company ! I would also suggest any travellers still in Nepal use this group to get yourselves out... I understand they are not doing tours during this crisis but I am sure you could pay them to assist you in exiting Nepal... if anyone can do it they can !

    The tour guide Rajan was excellent and the trip itself was nice and comfortable. It takes you through the Patan and Bhaktapur areas which have very interesting architecture and beautiful buildings. Rajan (the tour guide) gave a lot of useful information about the different styles, history and culture. Visiting those two places is a must when coming to Kathmandu and they are not very far so you don't get too tired.
