Amazing tour in Kathmandu We had this amazing tour in Kathmandu, thanks to our very nice guide Kapil. He knows the city and the people very well. He knows very much about the history of the city, as well as the culture. Also our driver was very good. This was a wonderful experience, on our second day in Nepal!
Great tour through Kathmandu We had Kapil as our guide through Kathmandu for one day. He took us to four important places and could tell us a lot about them and about the history of Nepal. He was very kind and made sure the tour was pleasant for us. I would definitely recommend getting him as a guide through Kathmandu!

Ein schöner Tag mit Guide Kapil: Charmant, intelligent und kenntnisreich Wir hatten das Glück, mit unserem Guide Kapil einen perfekten Tag zu verbringen. Er begleitete uns zu allen Sehenswürdigkeiten, die auf unserer Wunschliste standen und kannte die Stadt wie seine eigene Westentasche. Kapil beeindruckte uns mit seinem Charme und seiner Intelligenz und konnte uns ausgezeichnete und detaillierte Informationen zu jeder Sehenswürdigkeit geben. Es war faszinierend zu erfahren, dass er sein Wissen auch an Schüler weitergibt und dabei sogar ein Buch über Nepal schreibt. Während wir gemeinsam durch die Gassen schlenderten und plauderten, war Kapil immer angenehm distanziert und hielt sich zurück, wenn wir die Ruhe genießen wollten. Aber zur richtigen Zeit hob er die Distanz wieder auf und lieferte uns weitere Informationen. Dadurch hatten wir die perfekte Balance aus Information und Entspannung. Wir können Kapil als Guide nur wärmstens empfehlen!
