A superb experience on this 5 days tour and it gave no room to crib. Everything right from the time of booking went smoothly and it looked like a dream tour. I had not imagined to feel so happy and thrilled to cover so many important places and yet no tired or exhausted feeling. This is because it was rightly planned and there was no room for delay in the morning while starting or in the evening to return to the hotel. This ensured complete rest and visiting places in the morning comfortably in the bus. Deserved 5 stars to this tour operator!

We boys are a big group and initially all of us were ready for this tour and eventually some dropped stating reasons. Few of us got the tour booked and the day of the tour for me was disappointing as this was a group with whom I never moved much and all the other best friends of mine did not come on this tour. But, this group of friends did not leave me alone and we were together anywhere we went and the bus other passengers were also cool type people. I liked the tour, yet would have enjoyed with my other group of friends.
