Can only recommend our tour guide Niraj and the porter Ram - two stellar guys that were extremely friendly, flexible and open to all our wishes. Clearly one of the main reasons that... More

Thamel Travels and Tours offers great value and was very accommodating with all our requests to customise our tour. Had a great time in Kathmandu and Pokhara with them.

We had a great time with Thamel tours. Visited Pokhara, Bhaktapur, Nagarkot, Pantan and Kathmandu. Balaram and Saru were extremely attentive and were the only ones who customized our tour to our needs according to the number of days we have. Although we only had 5 days, we saw a lot of Nepal. Highly recommended to book with Thamel Travels... More

He organized the entire trip very well and even gave us some suggestions on additional activities to do while we were there. Mr Amit is extremely knowledgeable and during the Bhaktapur tour went out... More

His wife was our tour guide in one of our city tours and she was knowledgeable and informative. During our Pokhara and Nagarkot trips, our driver/tour guide took good care of us and gave us suggestions on best places... More

And all my follow up questions got a reply generaly in less than 30 minutes. The tour, guide and... More

Through Thamel Travels & Tours, my friends and I had the best experience I think we possibly could have during our visit to Nepal. Balaram and his team were great. The activities they chose for us to do, along with the places they chose for us to stay, gave us a greater look into Nepal and all it has to... More
