This is my first visit to these areas on the tour. I have been on tour to various other places and now I wished to see these areas that are equally charming and beautiful. The tour passengers were good and so was the accommodation and food. I loved the lobster dinner and it was really a thoughtful plan. The places we visited were all exceptionally beautiful and amidst the bounty of nature. I got immersed in this surrounding that I took pictures more than I intended. I will post them in the facebook and instagram so that my friends and circle come to know about this tour.

This was a captivating tour for anyone planning to go with family on a weeklong tour. They offered us advice and informed the itinerary that I had choices to make arrangements. We were lucky as the group with us in the bus were also good people. Our driver and guide were friendly, professional, accommodating and knowledgeable. The services offered were prompt and courteous that they answered even the silliest question asked by my son and an elderly couple. They were really good that we also had the phone number of the driver so that if we could not find them, they came to us on calling.

We went as a family, but actually I had joined my friend’s family and it was fun. They had one ticket and so I joined them suddenly and was unplanned. However, now I am happy that I was a part of this tour group. It was nice to travel in the bus and see all the places without any effort or trouble. The bus gave us a peaceful ride and the guide gave all information required. The only problem was with a family in the tour who were talking relentlessly. In the most beautiful places also they did not maintain silence.

The transportation was just okay, though the guide and the driver were doing a great job. They were friendly and so I give all credit to them for dropping and showing all the places. In fact, due to traffic, we reached some places late and yet our guide made through the closures and ensured we did not miss anything mentioned in the schedule. But in some places it was hard and we had to pay some extra cash apart from the fees as tips so that we got entry to the place. This was not a happy note to pay extra unnecessarily for no fault of ours.
