4. Are there any day guides to show or bring me around a certain city/place on motorbike/car?

Planning to travel next year April by jeep from Pokhara to Muktinath. It would be over 2 / 3 days with a night in Marpha and one night Kagbeni. Then driving back to Tatopani. A family trip with two 12 year olds. Anyone has any thoughts on this? How adventurous is the travel? From what I understand it takes 4 hrs from pokhara to tatopani where we stop for lunch then 2 hrs to marpha. About 2 hrs to kagbeni and half hr from kagbeni to muktinath. Then 5 hrs down to tatopani from where we will start our trek into the sanctuary.
