I loved the tour frankly speaking. There was literally no disappointments neither with the places and definitely nor with the services. These guys are professionals and they take care that you get the worth of your money.A good idea for relationship people and even for family. The tour guide is very responsible and takes all due care of the visitors.

I am not a guy who follow people in matters of travelling. I like going on my own to places and learn about their culture and history. Being a first time on a trip like this, yes there were things which went south when I preferred north but to summarise now, I actually am happy and contended with the trip. May be I will join them again some other time and this time ask my best friend to join too.
