I had a list of questions about the trip before I decided on booking for this tour. The Customer Service advisor was really responsive and answered them very promptly. I requested for a quote for all the details and he mailed me the details. I appreciated that they offered me multiple options and prices. Overall, excellent customer service and the tour for six days were matchless. They did that they told me and nothing was short of the list. The tour guide also was superb and did give information about each place we visited. It was a complete and perfect tour.
Initially my wife and I were planning to take a different tour. In the meanwhile, one of our friends posted this tour and the photos on his FB page and that caught our sight. The day we went got off with all the tours as full and so we had to wait for the next week that was a bit disappointing. Actually, we asked the tour operator if he could make some arrangements, but he could not help us and so we had to take leave and travel the next week. May be due to holidays it got pre-booked, yet otherwise everything was the best. Thank You.
Hi. My friend told me about this bus tour service, it was a good experience Mr. Z our driver and Mr. M our tour guide,and both were very experienced and wonderful people. They have a good knowledge about places and weather also. The journey went really outstanding, all arrangements and food was good. Highly recommended.
The trip was enjoyable,the best part is they took us to all the places mentioned in the schedule, I am a shy person but the guide makes me comfortable with its friendly gestures. Thanks for making mu trip memorable. All places were amazing and worth to visit. I suggest you to make your plan through this bus tour service. 6 days are well spent missing those Good days…
