Need a Culture Guide

Assuming the best trekking guide is not necessarily the best Culture Guide, I’m looking for the person to help me experience Old Kathmandu’s people, places and events not in tour books – original or primitive practices that survived the Middle Ages, such as sacrifices and more.

--- Advice much appreciated.

I have seen you posting in a forum looking for a guide last time too. I guess it is bit difficult part for you, so I would suggest you to arrive Kathmandu first, then contact your hotel or nearest agency to find you a tour guide (not trekking guide). Discuss with the guide and ask him/her if he/she is capable to do so.

Sightseeing guide is different than trekking guide. Legally, a trekking guide is not authorized to guide in sightseeing tours. If you already booked any trekking guide or your trip with an agency then you can simply contact them to arrange a guide for you. They will do it easily.

In my idea asking your trekking guide / agency to arrange sightseeing guide for you will be the best.

All the best, have a nice trip!

Hi there,

There are heaps of travel & trekking company in Kathmandu & most of them arrange a city tour in Kathmandu with tour guide,No worries about it up on the arrivals you could arrange it or f you wish to book a tour guide in advance just simply contact any agent in kathmnandu for mre secure.Tour guides are brilient to explain about nature,culture & History not the trekking guide.

Enjoy your trip.
