    Best Kathmandu Pokhara Drive with Car Rent

    This was my second tour to Pokhara after I did Poon Hill Trekking. Our previous road drive was quite tiring as we had taken the local bus for reaching Pokhara from Kathmandu. The local buses to Pokhara were also a bit crowded that day. When we reached our destination we tired. So we couldn’t enjoy the ride properly. So, I decided to hire a car for the tour this time. We contacted Nepal Rental Car and booked a car with them. I like the services provided by them. The car was so clean and cozy that the whole journey became relaxing. The driver provided to us was also friendly, helpful and most importantly well-experienced.  We even got the chance to take a break, stop in someplace to view the beauty of nature. This facility was not possible with our previous ride. Thank you so much NRC team for providing sun an astounding facility and making our journey worthy and more effective. I couldn't thank you more with words! Thumbs up !

    Luxurious Land Tour from Kathmandu to Pokhara

    Travelling is always fun but when you have your own car the level of fun also increases. Recently I did a land tour from Kathmandu to Pokhara by car. The whole tour was relaxing and comfortable because I didn’t have to struggle like in local vehicles. I had experienced a crowd and more trouble in the local vehicle previously though. For this trip, I rented that car from Nepal Rental Car. The cars provided by them were well maintained, clean, spacious and comfortable. The driver was experienced and polite. The way he spoke to us was so comforting that we didn’t have any problem with communicating. He even gave us knowledge about different en-route places. Overall, the whole tour was awesome because of the Nepal Rental Car. I highly recommend others to contact Nepal Rental Car for hiring the car or any luxury vehicles like jeep, van, minibus, and even a tourist bus, for your tour. You will also get the chance to choose your own vehicle as per your group size and comfort. Highly recommended!
