I and my husband had the pleasure of going on this 5 days tour and had a wonderful time and indeed it was a perfect escape from the boring and taxing routine.  Our tour was organized by the tour operator, but we had questions and doubts as we did not want any unpleasant surprises coming up in this tour. The tour operator was a good communicator and answered all our queries to our satisfaction and with courtesy. The responsiveness was great and it created a feeling to continue with this tour operator forever. The entire tour was wonderful and I recommend 5 stars rating.

An enjoyable tour and the best was they covered all the points they claimed while booking and that was what I felt very happy. This is the first time I was spending my time on this tour all alone. I was worried going alone, but nobody left me stay aloof. The guide and the co-passengers came out of the way to cheer me up that I was overwhelmed by their gesture. The hotel accommodation was not as expected. The rooms were very small and I am a heavy man for which the bathroom looked quite small. Otherwise, all was well.
