Food Tour was wonderful. Our guide, Sundip took us to local eateries in the old town of Kathmandu. All the places had been around for 20+ years and the food was absolutely spectacular. Sundip also kept us entertained with interesting stories and facts. Very knowledgeable guide and a good experience to recommend others!

The tour was great. The tour guide was really flexible with her itinerary when she found out that I wasn't vegan and asked me if I wanted to try the meat options even though I chose the vegan tour. She also showed me a few of the temples in Asan area.
