GoldenBus Tours gave is a very detailed tour. This is one travel agency which devised a well organized tour containing each and every detail about the daily itinerary and all necessary tickets and booking information. Our tour guide also had a deep knowledge of all the areas and the activities we could do. She was also very pleasant and guided us whenever we needed help. Accommodations provided were also good, had everything one would expect on a trip.

The tour guide had so much knowledge and was very personable. I felt that the tour was a little pricey ($600.10 for the long tour). It was one of our favorite tours we have ever did. I guess you can\'t put a price on experience.
