The tour day first day was exciting and this excitement was until the last day, the 6th day of the tour. The places we visited were also many and they were highly significant places. The luxurious bus was new and I loved the fresh smell it had every day as we boarded. The tour guide and the driver ensured all the comforts in the bus and explained every bit of the detail in and out. A knowledgeable guide was helpful all the way.

I am going on this tour for the second time. This tour operator is good and as I had already had a good experience with this tour operator, I had nothing to check upon. I just got my tickets booked and boarded the bus for this 6 days tour. Everything was organized, planned and the hotel accommodations were fairly good. They did a perfect job as usual, but the only problem was the guide in the bus. His English was not fluent and though he tried to explain, it was difficult to understand. Otherwise, the tour was really great and interesting
