My family really enjoyed the trip specially the tour guide Lee tried to entertain us when we were on the way back to New York because that was long trip. If you come to this tour, you should come with Lee and try the Jet boat.

Our tour guide Amber was lovely. The bus was pretty good although asking people not to use the toilet is one thing, but having the door locked is another! The tour itself was good, and Amber was pretty knowledgeable. It was a shame that the same people were late at nearly every stop, and I really did feel for Amber in having to deal with their apparent lack of respect for her, or anyone else on the trip really. It should be noted that this is obviously highly promoted to Asian people and I was the only Caucasian on the trip, which felt a little awkward, particularly when 2/3 did not speak English. Everyone was was very polite (apart from the family that were continuously late), and one Chinese couple took a liking to me, and it was interesting trying to converse when neither speaks the other language, but they were absolutely lovely. All in all a pretty good tour.

We took this tour on April 24th, 2017. James the tour guide was absolutely fantastic. So considerate and such a patient young man, ready to listen to anyone's problems. I wish that the rest room on the bus was available. You have to do something about that. Certain trips were a bit too long. All in all a great tour at a very reasonable price. Highly recommed it.

I recommend this tour!

This was a trip that was awesome in the sense that it made us cover a lot of places in just four days! The hotel where we stayed was clean and awesome. The tour guide was great and everything was well organized. He was really funny and kept the trip lighthearted throughout. The driver was very nice and helpful. Having it all planned out was wonderful. If you hate the bus trips, it's not for you as it involves 4 days of continuous bus rides.
