Just got back last night and I am tired, but not mentally. They are amazing places and I recommend each one of you in the United States to make some time and live for yourself. Visit these places, taking this tour. They are fantastic and know to take care of their tourists. The accommodation to food services, everything was top notch and there were no regrets. So much was available for this amount was more attractive and above all, in 5 days I have seen so many places that I could never have made even had I taken my automobile
I was not prepared for the 5 days tour, but the list had some amazing places that I did not wish to miss out either. Thus, I took to this tour with my other 2 friends and it was fun. Thank god I did not miss it. The only disappointment was I do not know English and when everyone is going on and on, I was going blank in between. My friends and the tour guide helped me, yet it would be better if I learned to speak better. The tour guide was caring and genuine, in fact truly awesome.
