OVERALL HAD A BLAST!! Read More »
Terrific tour company providing the best of everything. The privately guided option in India was amazing. Read More »
Our tour guide Mr LI was fantastic. One of the best. He really made the trip special and went out of his way to make our trip the best ever. The trip is not suitable for older people. There was a man 88 years old who made it very difficult for the guide and theguests. You should try to stress more that those who are not capable should not be on a trip like this. Read More »

I would suggest that the guides should emphasize that the tour needs to start sharply at ?. It is not fair that on an average, I had to seat and wait 30-45 minutes. Read More »
