Pickup from the Hotel 

After an early morning breakfast, you will be picked up by your Vespa riders/guides from your hotels. The Vespa's in good condition and your guides are Kathmandu locals who have been brought up in the alleys and lanes of the valley, so they have ample experience navigating the heavy traffic. 
Make sure you have a light jacket and sunglasses on. The helmets will be provided by the guides. A single Vespa will have one pillion and one expert rider/guide. If you are a group, then all the Vespas will run in coordination and make stops according to the itinerary. 

Cultural Sightseeing Visits

We will begin the fun-filled day with sightseeing tours around cultural and religious heritage sites within the valley that have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Along the way, we will make stops at the secret food courts for an authentic local experience. 
We begin the tour by riding to the nearby Kathmandu Durbar Square, which is also known locally as Basantapur and oftentimes Freak Street. We will park the Vespa nearby and then take a walk in the courtyard's no-vehicle zone. You will come across many pagoda-styled ancient temples and statues of deities. Witness locals worshiping the statues with flowers, garlands, and sweets. You can visit the Hanuman Dhoka Museum, which was once the Palace of the Shah regime but is now a museum that holds all the ancient artifacts.

From there, our next destination will be Pashupatinath temple in the northwest of the city. Pashupatinath is one of the most significant Hindu temples in the world and is frequented by pilgrims all around the year. While non-Hindu cannot enter the main temple, we will pay a visit to the surrounding temples near the Bagmati river.

After the spiritual tour, the next stop would be Boudhanath, one of the largest dome-shaped Stupas in Nepal. It is a pilgrimage site for Buddhists around the world. After circumambulation around the dome, we will have some authentic Tibetan Buddhist lunch in one of the famous eateries nearby.

Dropoff at the hotel

Following an eventful day in the back of the vintage Vespa, you will be dropped off at your hotel. If you like to have similar unique day tours in and around Kathmandu city, then feel free to let us know, and we'll organize the same for you.

We loved it <3
We thoroughly loved the ride but the pollution is a total-off setting here in Kathmandu. We rode the narrow alley of Kathmandu that leads to the cultural sites, brimming with small temples and stupas. We have some never-thought photos. Thanks to Naba for managing this trip smoothly. We were provided nice helmet, and had brief pre-ride meeting with the team.

Fun Vespa ride in KTM
I met Naba through a friend in Thamel. I was back from my volunter program in a rural village of Nepal and had two extra days before heading back to California. I met Naba and asked him if he could offer some best experience and OMG, I had a heap of options from Hiking around the city to momo making class and all. I had been missing motoride and I chose this Vespa ride in Kathmandu. I loved this trip for two reasons: one is the affordable price and the next is top service by Naba's company. I knew from the very first minute I talked with Naba. I loved this ride totally except for dusty cloud at times.
