An allround taste of Kathmandu and the valley in 6 days
I just returned from a trip to Kathmandu – 6 days round Kathmandu followed by 10 days in a monastery. I rarely book private tours but since I had only 6 days in Kathmandu and I was travelling alone, I wanted to make the most of my time there so I chose the services of Exciting Nepal. There is no doubt in my mind that I made the right decision. My trip would never have been so complete if I’d been left to my own devices. To my initial inquiry, I received a quick reply and whenever I had a question about anything, Subash emailed back immediately.As an event planner in my job in Holland, attention to detail and flexibility are important. Exciting Nepal completely took care of everything. Anjul, my lady guide was completely in tune with what I wanted to see and Pradip, our driver, was happy to take me anywhere I wanted to go. Anjul knew exactly where to go for anything I needed – be it having a dress made or getting my nose pierced. She had a contact for everything adding the true sparkle to my time there. Two days I spent walking through the Kathmandu valley with my second guide, Ramesh. He was very knowledgeable of the area and you could tell he had a respect and love for his country and he kept me motivated to keep walking when the trail got tough. The overnight accommodation in Nagarkot was wonderful with breath taking views of about 20 eagles gliding on the currents below me.Subash and Ram, the proprietors of Exciting Nepal were a pleasure to deal with in their commitment and flexibility. If you choose them, you can be confident that they will meet all your requirements. They are very professional and I can honestly say that when I return next time with my husband, I definitely will plan to ask them for their services again.
