  • Many thanks to DJ who was our guide for the 9 days trip. He was patient, polite, and carried out things systematically and the activities throughout the whole tour were carried out orderly despite the large group of 40 persons. Bill, our driver, must be commented for driving us safely and helping in loading and unloading our luggage throughout the tour. The scenery was marvelous and I made many friends from the trip.
