I came from India with family. The trip was good and comfortable. It was required for us to pay the additional charges to most of the places on this tour that is not handled by tour company. We explored many places in eight days. Tour guide gave us productive information about every place. Hotel stay was comfortable. Sometimes food was not according to our taste. Overall the trip was amazing and we had a great time. thanks

Before starting the trip, I was having so many doubts because it was my first experience for such a long trip with my family (especially kids). It was a no doubt good experience. We enjoyed amazing places and beautiful sights. The bus driver was a trained, experienced man, George was our guide, we spent a good time with him, he is a soft-spoken and helpful. We tried different kinds of food and shop as well. In the end, I suggest improving the accommodation. Highly recommended.
