Our 8 days tour happened by chance and it was certainly a last minute travel plans. We saw some great reviews of this tour operator and suddenly made for it. Of course we were a group of 7 and so with a big group the initial skepticism had crept about the tour. The tour operator assured that it will be the best tour and finally we were on the tour travel plans. We had our reservations, but with every passing minute, our skepticism vanished in thin air. as promised by the tour operator our guide, ensured all the passengers had a smile on our faces and gave no opportunity for complaints.

My husband and his friend went on this 8 days tour after I recommended. I was the first one to go on this tour with my office colleagues. It was fantastic, very well arranged tour. The itinerary was rightly planned and executed. The accommodations were awesome for me and now for my husband on this tour he said. The hotels staffs were hospitable and ensure the service was nice and they were ready to come for help. The climatic conditions changed suddenly and became very cold and my husband was disappointed as he went unprepared to handle the rough situation.
