Maina is a very nice guide and she showed me a lot around Kathmandu within 3 days. Getting around Kathmandu is not at all easy and I am glad I have found Maina's tour to get me around the places in the most efficient way. Maina explained the history of the cultural sites in details and told me stories in the palace of the royal family which I wouldn't have known much if going by myself. The drive is a nice gentleman too; you have to be amazed by his driving skill in this maze called Thamel. I highly recommend Eve Holidays if you want to make the most of your holiday in Nepal.

This was amazing! Maina, our guide is a lovely woman! This 3 days have been wonderful, from the first day to the last! This is a tour around the main Dubar Streets of Katmandu-Valley, wher we visited a lot of both Hindu and Buddhist temples! The architecture of this ancient building, their history and culture is really good conversated through this amazing and kind lady! We also visited a monastery for Buddhist munks, and it was really a memorable experience! And not to forget the beautiful Stupas of Kathmandu! A nice and experienced driver followed us everywhere, so we never had to walk a long distance! I would highly recommend Eve Holidays and Maina as a guide! It was an amazing experience!
