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 had great day touring these incredible sites in Kathmandu and I think I had one of the best guides in Kathmandu to show me, his name is Birodh. Not only does he have a thorough understanding of the culture and history but also very passionate about it.

The most impressive places were the Pashupatinath Temple, we visited the place at a moment where there were a number of ceremonies happening at the same time. Though I know a bit about some of the rituals, Birodh gave it great personal context to it. We ended the day with great late lunch overseeing the Durbar square.

Thanks for such a memorable and inspirational day!

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.

My tour guide was Jumana Khatri. She and a private driver took me on all the sites as promised. Her English was very good and I fully enjoyed the day, learning a lot. I had never used a private tour guide and private driver in a private vehicle before. The roads in Nepal are very rough and traffic is crazy. Make sure you will be comfortable spending the full day with a stranger in the vehicle of a driver who you have to trust to bob and weave through the ruts and traffic jams of Nepal, and hope his car survives! Jamuna was very pleasant. I bought her lunch (which I think is expected - as is a tip at the end of the day). I highly recommend the tour. However, be prepared to jump out of the car at a moment's notice! Thee are a lot of stops during the day. When you are at your next site, there isn't much warning from the driver or Jamuna to grab your things and go! I suggest you take a face mask (which many residents wear), an extra bottle of water, and a tote bag for the treasures you may buy along the way!

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!

Spent a Saturday with Birodh seeing and learning about the major sites in Kathmandu. Pickup from the hotel was on time and both he and the driver were friendly and courteous from the start.

First stop was Durbar Square. There are buildings there that are damaged from the 2015 earthquake and there are also buildings that have already been restored. Interesting place.

Next stop was Swayambhunath Stupa (Monkey Temple). Did not have to climb the 365 steps, the car got us to the top. There were lots of people but not as many monkeys as I was expecting. Also, there is about a 5-10 minute sales pitch at one of the stores before you can head on up for a great view of Kathmandu from the roof of that shop. It was a no pressure sales pitch though - no big deal.

Third stop was when we had lunch. It was in the area around Boudhanath Stupa. Good restaurant on the 2nd/3rd floor with outside seating and a view of the Stupa.

Final stop was Pashupatinath Temple where people are cremated. There were several of these in progress when we visited.

At all stops, Birodh provided information about the site as well as information about modern day Kathmandu and Nepal. Overall, it was an interesting and informative day!

The full day tour of Kathmandu provided by Outfitter Nepal is wonderful and great value for money. It is ideal for travellers who have limited time in the city and want to make the most of it. For a very reasonable sum of money you get the services of an expert guide and private driver who will introduce you to four of the major sights in Kathmandu (hotel pick-up and drop-off is also included). My guide, Sabita, was incredibly knowledgeable and brought the history and culture of this fascinating city alive. Our first stop was the ‘Monkey Temple’, Swayambhunath, a beautiful place with fantastic views over the Kathmandu valley. We then visited UNESCO-listed Durbar Square which is has some wonderful temples and structures (although some buildings are still undergoing restoration as a result of the 2015 earthquake). After lunch we walked around the magnificent Boudhanath Stupa before concluding our tour at the Pashupatinath Temple, a sacred Hindu temple complex located on the banks of the Bagmati River. Thank you, Sabita, for making this day in Kathmandu so special.
