This was a beautiful tour of the monuments and all the notable interesting places. There is certainly no other way to see all these notable places in the quickest way than getting into this tour bus. It was great to see and the night tours were stunning. Our guide accompanied everywhere we went and it appeared incomplete without his presence. This was because he had answers for all the questions and he handled in a pleasing manner. Even if he did not know, he said it in a humorous manner that it never appeared he did not know the answer.

It was my best trip. One of my friends told me about this tour company and I found it the best from others I experienced before. The best thing is that they follow the same itinerary mention in the plan. Busses were always on time and traveling safely. Loved the whole trip and all cities. So much to see and praise. We had good hotels throughout the tour. The tour guide was a skilled man and his coordination was good. Highly recommended.

Spending vacation with my wife to take this tour was a wonderful experience. The trip was good but expensive also. We have to pay money on every third place. The tour guide was accommodation, soft-spoken and caring man. He has lots of information about places and people. We learn lots of new thing and the history of different places. Busses were comfortable and in good condition and hotel stay was good and up to the mark. Overall the trip was amazing and we had a great time. Thanks.

We boarded this bus almost every day a bit late and had to face other tourists rough looking expressions. We could not make it with getting up early on the first two days. Later, our guide encouraged us and ensured we reached perfectly. He woke us up early and so we also made up with it and stopped getting humiliated. The tour guide was informative and gave facts new to us about the various sights, and also included few jokes. He played with the children who were in the tour bus and so everything was a happy-happy tour, best of all.
