The itinerary ran very smoothly and well organised. Small size of the tour also suits the current situation. Tour guide (as well as driver) is friendly and caring.

It was a very well organised tour with Guide/Driver Anujk who is helpful, knowledgeable, thoughtful and kind. Though a long day of 12/13 hours, the tour was well worth it, as we experienced spectacular view of the mountains, glacier, lakes of amazing colour, Canterbury plains etc all with comfort and ease. The buffet lunch at the hotel Hermitage was great with a variety of food and enjoyable with view. They provided some snacks, drinks for us which were appreciated. All in all, it was an excellent tour and highly recommendable.
