What I loved about this well arranged tour was first of all the tour guide. He was extra helpful and was always there to address any of our queries. Besides that I loved how they took you to an attraction and did not rush us at all, giving us all enough time to take in the surroundings and even amazing photographs along the way too.The tour company arranges everything for you, that too at an affordable price. With the locations and views I experienced, I think it was totally worth my money The locations had amazing views too
