After some research and suggestions from my relatives, we choose this one and one word for it is; Amazing. It was amazing. I am a foodie and enjoyed every single dish included in this tour. Also, we visited almost every place we heard about that was famous. The services were outstanding and I sure do recommend this a lot of my friends.
There is a mad variety of places to visit each day and that's why I and my friends decided to take this tour. We had doubts about the hotels but the hotel choiuce4 was amazing and with full accommodations. We learned a lot about the history of the places on this tour thanks to the tour guide. But, however, towards the end of the tour _ the bus service was not as good as in the start. But it definitely was a great experience!
