A wonderful trip, than I expected. The tour was rightly planned and organized, we never had to rush in any visit and so even in the theme park we got time to enjoy completely. There was no one to chase us with the time schedule. All the other places we visited were also notable. The bus driver and the guide gave us nothing to worry. They told us all the details of each place, making us feel we belonged to that place. The accommodations were decent and had all the basic essentials to attend. It is worth a 5 star recommendation.

I am happy with this trip of 5 days and enjoyed it thoroughly all through the trip. I could not be comfortable only with the guide’s way of giving details or instructions as my language not good. I will improve my talking skills and take this tour again, so that I understand his speaking. However, even the guide was not very fluent in his talking and so it will be nice to have a good English speaker so that all there is no understanding problem. Rest, the tour, the food, the accommodation and most of all the places we visited were amazing.
