it was amazing tovisit so many places on this bus trip. I am the lucky one to have such nice tour guide, Mr. Z was a very good person, he guides us in a great way. All arrangements were pretty good; the whole trip was fun filled. It was the most well-organized trip I ever experienced. Highly recommended.
An outstanding trip with my wife. Due to my personal commitments, I reached SFO airport late night I was bit uncomfortable to arrange my own transport to get into hotel. The rest of the trip was hassle free. It was a quite long trip, but organized properly. we have seen so many beautiful spots and gain great knowledge about the historical landscape and the cultures of other societies. Our guide was a knowledgeable and friendly man. The accommodation was good. Highly recommended for all. thanks
