February Tour Review

Fantastic first time visit

Our family recently toured Kathmandu, Nagarkot, Bhaktapur, Pokhara and Chitwan using the services of Rabindra and iTourNepal. Everything was fantastic—from initial communications via email to tailoring activities to appeal to a 9-year old. Rabi arranged for us to have lunch and visit a raptor rescue and parahawking center in Pokhara because we expressed interested in birdwatching. When we mentioned that that one member of our party was a professional chef, Rabi arranged for us to have lunch and a tour of an organic farm outside of Bhaktapur. .....
We found Rabi and his associates to be punctual, flexible, knowledgeable and kind—in fact, perfect hosts for a perfect 10-day vacation. 'i Tour Nepal' particularly specializes in personalized small group tours, and we can not recommend them highly enough.

Nepal is safe to travel during Covid 19 pandemic
