I could not give this a 5 star simply because the time it takes to get to the put in place, and the return is very exaggerated. The brochure lists 3 hours, but the traffic issues, and road conditions make that impossible. It took 4 1/2 hours to arrive, and 5 and 1/2 to return. For 3 hours on the water seems like a rough trade off. The rafting part was fine, and the lunch provided was very good, but the travel time was crazy. The location is only 65 miles from Kathmandu, so that lets you know how fast you move.
The guide and driver were very punctual and super kind. Our driver was incredible at navigating his way though the tight traffic. The guide knew everything about the places we visited and helped me with other things, like recharging our phone minutes, grocery shopping and being super accommodating with our 4 year old daughter.
The guide arranged everything according to my wishes, very customised. Very knowledgeable. I wanted to stay a little longer at the crematorium and that was no problem at all. Would have been great to have a bottle of water free of charge as part of the tour, it was quite hot during the day.
The weather didn't cooperate and I was denied the beautiful sunrise view of the mountains. Bhaktapur is a fascinating study in ancient Hindu and Newari culture. Despite the devastation of the 2015 earthquake, it is a beautiful place.
Had a very experienced guide who spoke good English and looked after me extremely well. Would definitely recommend, especially if this your first time trekking in Nepal.
