Kathmandu World Heritage Site Tour Review

Fantastic vacation - custom-made with trekking and sightseeing

Source:Trip Advisor

At first we were just looking for a short, easy trekking tour near Kathmandu and found the Helambu Cultural Trek on the Internet. We felt well advised by Ramesh Dhakal and booked then the entire vacation with Nepal Mountain Trekkers. In addition to city tours through Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, we also made a round trip in a jeep through other places around the Kathmandu valley. Our guide Min accompanied us all the time (14 days) and informed us very competently about the history and present of Nepal and also made us aware of many local details. We spent a fantastic vacation and loved the country and its people. Thank you so much, we will never forget our Nepal experience!

Would highly recommend Ramesh and his team to anyone. Actually me and my friends have just passed on his details to a group of friends who are hoping to go to Nepal soon. As 3 young ladies, we felt extremely safe and comfortable with Ramesh, our tour guide Min and our driver. We were picked up from the airport with welcoming flower chains, brought to our hotel and begin our trip. Our tout guide Min was very accommodating and often gave us time to nap as we had very early starts especially after the mountain flight. Ramesh organised our whole trip from start to finish, and did an amazing job. We really got to see a lot of the culture and heritage of Nepal, but yet had our own free time in the evenings. Ramesh organised our accommodation, tours, mountain flight etc. We also were treated to a lovely lunch all together on our last day which was a very kind gesture. Our only regret is that we didnt have longer in Nepal, we really enjoyed ourselves. Would love to come back and plan a trek next time. Thank you so much Ramesh and Min
