The itinerary was good and the guide Okai was perfect. We left NYC close to 7 am and were back at 9pm. Though the 9 hour bus trip is a bit tiring but the impressions definitely got over it. The only thing Id like to improve is to have a bit more free time there explore the city.

I had a great time! The tour guide was fun and entertaining. He guided us smoothly and seamlessly. Would definitely recommend to everyone.
