This guiding was perfect! Our guide and host ; Maina, was the loveliest person ever! The culture, history and architecture of the old parts of Kathmandu is what you can get here, for a good price and in good English as well! I would definitely recommend this, and book with Eve Holidays again! Thank You!

I have to thank Maina for showing me around in Kathmandu for three days while I was there in February. Without her I don't think I can travel around Kathmandu so efficiently and see so many things in a few days. Maina is very knowledgeable of the historical sites and she takes good care of her guest. I am so glad I have made this trip and I wish Maina all her best. I highly recommend her tours for anyone considering a better understanding of this fantastic country Nepal.

Man Wong, Hongkong

Lovely tour of the highlights in Kathmandu. Maina helped me adjust the tour to fit changing travel plans and I learned so much about Nepali history and culture! Transport around the city was made very easy and the walks were filled with sights! I would recommend this tour and I hope to return to Nepal again one day!
