I did a 15 days holiday in Nepal. First I experienced the Katmandu Walking Tour and I loved it, so I did two other tours more with Himkala Adventure during this time: A Day Hiking (Namobuddha Hiking, 2 days) and the Langtang Trek (6 days)
All of them were amazing experiences, Shiva takes care of everything so you can enjoy a high quality experience (hard to find in Nepal), with the proper accommodations, guides, meals and transports, so you dont have to worry about anything
It was a real great choice as he devotes himself to make you understand and learn the culture, history and way of living of the nepali people

A walking tour with Shiva was a great experience for me. He took us around the city of Kathmandu covering Thamel area, the Durbar Square (we didnt want to enter it) and Swayambhunath Temple. The tour was informative. Shiva is knowledgeable and has good English. After the tour, I decided to engage him as my tour guide for the rest of my trip (4 more days), which was also nice. Overall, Id recommend anyone visiting Kathmandu to do this tour with Shiva. Two thumbs up.

We had an amazing time with Shiva! Nepal would not have been the same without him as a guide. He is so knowledgeable and you feel safe and at ease when walking around Nepal with him. He took us everywhere we wanted to go and showed us so many amazing sites. We had such a good time that we hired him for a full day tour the next day!

Shiva is an excellent guide. He was waiting for us in front of Gaden of Dreams at the same time indicated in the booking. He is a good English speaker. I was very happy to know that he is the one that initiated the free tour concept in Kathmandu.
Its the best tour in Kathmandu and highly recommended. You will get a full explanation on every part that you pass through. In addition, if you get tired, Shiva will find for you the best place to take rest and drink whatever you want.
Many thanks to Shiva and good luck!

Shiva was an amazing guide, we werent in town on the normal days he runs the tour so he offered to meet just the two of us for his walking tour on a Sunday. The walking tour itself was incredible, Shiva is incredibly knowledgable on the streets of Kathmandu and all the history of both the city itself and the different cultures that make it up. We went places we would have never thought we were actually allowed, got information on the ins and outs of the city and saw great little tucked away gems that we would have just walked past had we been on our own. Such a great way to be introduced to a city and get some context for your stay, highly recommended. If you are in a smaller group Shiva is also happy to tailor the tour to your interests. Complete legend and cannot recommend enough.
