We were a group of 7 in this tour and had a real time of fun, thrill and all time excitement. The tour guide was young and energetic ready to answer all of us. He was almost like our group member. Our driver was an expert and managed to reach all the places on time that we never had to regret standing in queues or wasting time anywhere. The lunch places in the noon were also excellent.  The places we stayed, the hotels accommodation was as anticipated, good and well maintained. We were happy and wish to go on more tours with this tour operator.

The tour of 8 days was fabulous and we are unable to believe that we could make to this tour. Everything was pleasant. The 4th and 5th day there was 8 choices and that was a bit disappointing as I wished to go to many of the choices and had to opt only one on each day as that itself covered many more important places. Thus, for us the tour is yet to complete as we wish to go with them for more times as we have to see the other places as well. The tour bus, guide and operator were good.
