Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. We learned a lot and the entire tour we had fun. The time flew. I highly recommend taking this tour and as the tour guide made this tour more enjoyable, I will try to go when he is taking on tours. This was my third experience on tours. Earlier also I went on tours, but this was the best experience. The tour operators are good and they care for their customers. They made good hotel arrangements and no other problem. All the places we visited were also very beautiful. I give 5 stars.
I had been with my children on this tour. The Boeing tour was liked by my son. I was glad the bus was quite large, comfortable and offered a smooth ride. The guide gave us all sorts of information and was helpful to everyone throughout the tour. A nice cheerful person, I wish I also be like him, but that is difficult. Anyhow, I took lots of pictures and explored the places carefully as much as possible and poured my heart out with questions. I had my small baby with me and I was not really comfortable as I had to take care of her.
