I went with one of my friends on this tour for 7 days. This was a planned tour and we enjoyed the most. The bus was comfortable, the tour was great and the stay in different hotels were really perfect. We enjoyed throughout and everything was great. The guide was very honest and he explained everything to all the tourists. The driver also did an excellent job that we never felt the strain of traveling even for a moment. Right from the first day of the tour to the last day of the tour, it was really fabulous. We had a great time.
I cannot believe that I am a part of the tour. I enjoyed the tour, but not fully as I had my seat right on the wheels and had to take all the jerks. It was a nice tour; the guide was helpful. The places we visited were awesome and interesting. The places we visited were beyond my expectation and I was more than pleased to be a part of this tour. I liked this tour operator as he did not miss any place mentioned in the schedule. I will go on for more tours and also recommend my known people.
