Bhaktapur and Patan Tour

We booked this day tour a week before we flew to Kathmandu. The trip was educational and rewarding. We got to know a great deal of info about Bhaktapur, Patan in just a day. We explored Nyatapola Temple, Golden Gate, Palace of 55 Windows and several other places in these two cities. We had unbelievable shots of Bhaktapur. It was worthy and the price was reasonable as well. We have to recommend this tour to you if you have a day or two in Kathamndu before you fly back to your home.
