It was a fantastic tour and a wonderful experience for us all. Everyone enjoyed a lot and the tour was planned amazingly. The tour guides did a great job. The transportation service was also good and hotel accommodation was on spot. It was a memorable tour.

I loved this tour. It was a great tour and we all really enjoyed. I can’t recall any other longer tours that I had enjoyed this much. It was a good tour. The attractions were great and we all enjoyed visiting the places we visited. It was a good tour.

I didn’t enjoy the tour because it was boring and useless. I mean I can’t like the idea of wasting nine days in a tour like this one. The services weren’t good as well and the attractions got boring after a first couple of days.
