We were traveling in Kathmandu, Nagarkot and Bakthapur in April. Our guide was Hari (Yan Pd. Timalsina). The trip was perfectly organized. Starting from picking us up from the airport to bringing us back to the airport. Hari was always there for us, very attentive, always on time and extremely friendly and helpful. We felt very well taken care of by him.

We can definitely recommend Himalaya Heart Treks & Expeditions and especially Hari as a guide.
