What People are Saying About Our Tours!

"The mix of activities and experiences are something a solo traveler or group going alone would have no way to put together themselves. The connections made with all the people as a whole will remain with me forever. It was awesome and I want to go back. Thank you so much for putting together an amazing experience."
Mike S.

 "The Kathmandu Valley is more enchanting than I could ever have imagined!  Tara and Ian escorted us into the world of Buddhist and Hindu culture, master woodcarvers, musicians, and festivals that are a apart of everyday life in Nepal, things  that the ordinary tourist would never get to see. The magic I experienced continues to unfold for me long after returning home." 
Sherry Stewart

"I felt that I got to see a more authentic side of Nepal than I would have on our own or in a larger tour.  The views were stunning! This trip was a big bang for the buck considering all that was included!"
Julie L.

"Meeting such a wide-ranging group of Nepalis was the highlight for me – everything from cultural academics to local artisans to impoverished children with big smiles.

"Tara’s Tour was really good value for the money. Loved it."
David P.

I don't usually do group tours for travel. But on this trip I did not feel so much like I was on a group tour as much as a fun trip and adventure with friends, even though I didn't even know most of the people on our trip until I got to Nepal. I loved it."   Zondra Skertich

"Tara's extensive knowledge of the language, culture, and layout in Nepal, along with her real connections to the people there, made the tour an easy, relaxed journey where we could just have fun and enjoy our time there. A fantastic trip I'd definitely do again!"

"My search for Buddhism made sense in Nepal."
Gay H.

"Our trip to Nepal with Tara Linhardt and Music Arts Adventures was absolutely wonderful! It was exactly what we were hoping for - getting to know the real people of Nepal, playing music together, making friends, and visiting the common homes of the people and watching them make their art - paper, pottery, woodcarvings , etc. I loved watching the children dance and then dancing with them (even though we were nowhere close to dancing well lol). I loved walking through the streets with the children and talking to them. I loved feeling the spirit of the people through their kindness and religion. It was all wonderful and the views were beautiful. Thank you Tara - from the bottom of my heart! "
Phyllis Dodd

"This trip changed my entire outlook on life when I went in early 2020. Highly recommended.  
Tara puts together a great itinerary!"


"If you have even thought about visiting Nepal, you should go with Tara Linhardt on this trip. It is a fabulous tour and you will learn and experience so much. We went in 2020, right before the pandemic, and it is a life-changer!"
Jefferson Glassie

Tara is full of anticipatory guidance for a fun and safe Music Arts Adventure, from pre-trip to post-trip and every part in between.  This is what she does and she is good at it!!  She knows the locals and the venues for music, arts and adventure.  She is well-loved by the Nepalis wherever she goes and you are happy to be in her care. See for yourself why Nepal is called Never Ending Peace And Love!  Treat yourself to a Music Arts Adventure with Tara and Ian!!

Here is one of our clients who did our Culture Tour and then our Trekking Extension followed by some of our tutorials that we offer and enjoyed it all so much that they decided to write a song about it.  Thanks so much to Tiv Hay-Rubin for both joining our tours and also for the wonderful song and clawhammer banjo playing.
