    Recommendable Nagarkot Tour Arrangement with Rental Car

    I decided to give a birthday surprise to my girlfriend and decided to take her to Nagarkot because she always wanted to visit the places where sunrise seems good enough. We were in Nepal and have the chance to visit around. So, I took her there saying that we were just traveling for fun. I had booked a car from Nepal Rental Car, a car hiring company in Nepal. The driver picked us from our hotel. Throughout the whole drive, he interacted with us which were fun and acknowledging too. He was very humble, obliging and of smiling nature. The car provided to us was also very furnished and touched-up. We went reached there and celebrated the day. The next day, we went for sunrise view and returned via a temple, they call it, Changu Narayan. The driver also helped a lot with this. Much obliged to the NRC team for all these arrangements. We will always recommend your company to our friends whenever they want to come to Nepal!

    Happy Time Travel to Nagarkot with NRC

    Travelling was always fun for me and my best friend. We were always ready for exploring new places but the only problem was that we have to travel in a pubic vehicle which was so tiring and stressful. So this time we decided to hire a private vehicle. We were only two in number so we decided to hire a car. After surfing for hours on the internet, we decided to contact Nepal Rental Car. It was our first time so we were not sure about the company and their services but also decided to take this small risk. After contacting them and discussing the trip, we booked it and started our tour the next day. We were shocked and happy at the same time. The car was amazing, and the whole drive was relaxing. The driver was very polite, friendly and entertaining. The whole ride to Nagarkot and return back from Changu was full of entertaining. We were very satisfied with their services. We stayed in the hotel that they had booked, and it was really cool too. I just loved everything NRC did for us. Thank you for your services and thank you for making our tour so memorable! We will surely contact you for further trips to Nepal. See you soon!

    Nagarkot Tour in Maintained Vehicle

    After exploring most of the places of Nepal, I and my 2 other friends had only 5 days left to finish our vacation. We explored most of the places in local vehicles which was quite tiring. So we decided to hire a private vehicle to save our time and effort and of course energy too. After deciding our journey we search for a car hiring company. While surfing the internet, we found Nepal Rental Car and contacted them. After contacting them and discussing our trip to Nagarkot, they booked a vehicle for us. The next day when the driver came to pick us at our hotel we were shocked to see the vehicle. It was clean, well maintained and was like brand new. We went on our trip and trust me the whole ride was amazing and relaxing. The driver was friendly and entertaining. We stop in some places to have snacks and to enjoy the scene and took a lot of pictures too. The whole trip was awesome. The hotel booked was also good enough with a nice balcony view. We were full of energy after the drive and were able to enjoy the trip fully. We would like to thank NRC for their services and highly recommend others to book a vehicle from this company. They will provide the best services in comparison to others.
