What to expect
Get a true local’s perspective on Kathmandu during this guided tour by rickshaw through the vibrant streets of the colorful Nepalese capital. It’s the perfect chance to take in the explosion of sights, sounds and smells that characterize this fascinating urban area at a laid back pace. Start your trip in the evening at the Hotel Marshyangdi, where you’ll meet up with your driver and guide for the trip. Climb aboard your personal rickshaw, and set off, as your driver winds his way through the labyrinthine streets of Kathmandu and through throngs of pedestrians. Take time to observe the area’s range of local storefronts, hawking everything from scarves to sweet, baked goods. Your elevated rickshaw seat provides just the right angle of view to observe the hustle and bustle down below. Travel by rickshaw past Asan, the oldest food market in Kathmandu, specializing in spices and vegetables, before arriving at the ancient shrines, temples, and palaces of Durbar Square. Then a break from your rickshaw ride to stroll through this centuries-old area on foot. Grab a seat on a bench for some quality people-watching, or relive the hippie heyday of the 1960s on Freak Street inside the various pie shops lining the area. If you’re feeling thirsty, warm yourself up with a cup of chai or take things up a notch with a belly-warming glass of rakshi (a local Nepalase drink similar to sake) from a local food vendor or pub. At the end of your exploration of Durbar Square, hop back aboard your rickshaw, winding once again through the cacophony of vendors, motorbikes and rickshaw horns, as you make your way back to your original departure point.

Great tour to see the main sites in Kathmandu
Jan 2020 • Friends
My two friends and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour, which left directly from our hotel and took us to the main sites in Kathmandu. Although it was very rainy, we still managed to see the sites that we wanted to - so just bear this in mind when you are booking. Our tour guide - Binisha - was super nice and accommodating, she even got us some tea mid way through the tour. I would highly recommend seeing Kathmandu this way!

Great fun!
Jan 2020 • Solo
The evening tour of Kathmandu was fantastic! Patricia was an excellent guide and knew so much history! She took us to a number of temples and also to the local market. Afterwards, she treated us to a delicious cup of chai. It was a really excellent way to spend my first evening in Kathmandu. Even as a solo traveller, I would highly recommend this tour!

(NB: the sun may set at 5.30pm, but Kathmandu comes alive after dark. Don’t be tempted to think you won’t see anything on an evening tour - you’ll probably see more of the good stuff than you would during the day!)

A great snapshot of Kathmandu!
I really enjoyed this tour and the good company of the group. Our guide, Pratistha, was very knowledgeable and friendly and so we learnt a lot. It was great to see Kathmandu at night from the rickshaw, rather than walking, as this is the busiest time when locals are out shopping and socialising. Very good as well if you are short on time.

This tour is good for those short on time who want to see Kathmandu's temples, shrines and street food. My guide Binisha was really friendly and took me around some interesting backstreets as well as more famous sights.

Very good evening tour
Oct 2019 • Family
Our guide Sanjeer is very good ! We have a very good tour especially the spice & the local night market. It is very difficult to go there by ourselves without a good guide . The feel is very different if you go to temples at night .if you like photography like me , you will definitely have a good harvest!

Rickshaw ride at night and city tour
Sep 2019
This tour took place on Sept. 17, 2019 under rainy and difficult conditions and I was the only one out and about for the evening, but my guide didn't cancel. Thanks so much to my guide Sanjeeb for a great tour, especially through the market place where only the locals shop. Very interesting explanations of the small worship sites and religious practices. Sorry I am so late but I waited until I got back home to do my review.

Great intro to Kathmandu
Having such a limited time in Kathmandu, I wanted to hit the ground running as soon as I arrived, and this tour did not disappoint. It was such a great experience going through the busy streets of Kathmandu in a rickshaw, but the experience was made even better by my guide Manas. This isn’t a food tour, but he noticed me noticing all the yummy foods as we passed by, so we made a couple food stops along the way. Highly recommended.

Evening rickshaw tour
I did this rickshaw tour myself with the guide Satya Kumal. It was a fantastic tour that visited temples spice market and Durbar square. I saw so much of local life and activities. The rickshaw driver was great and very expert at navigating the busy roads. My guide was very experienced and informative. A highlight was being able to see the Tibetan Buddhist monastery.
I would like to see some local food options added to this tour.
I highly recommend this tour.
