    3.5 - Good

    The tour was well organized. Transportation from one place to another was good. Hotels were super fine for backpackers trip. I felt we had a lot of free time and it could be nicer if we would have more activities included.

    3.0 - Average

    Enjoyed some of the tour except one member of the group was micro managing the group as if she was at work making my experience horrible for most of the journey, only good parts was when she went off with her minions because she had to keep everyone in control. 3 of us she couldn't micro manage so she made sure the tour was as unpleasent as possible, the CEO only noticed something was wrong towards the end by this time was too late to do anything. I have been on 3 tours with G Adventures now only this one was bad, because of a group member. Both other tours still in touch with member except for Delhi to Kathmandi adventure which I am only in touch with 2 others out of 8 (group of 9 including me).

    4.5 - Excellent

    Being a solo traveller and my first destination, this tour was brilliant for me to get to know other travellers and see the country without doing it alone and at high costs. Having a group meeting at the start was a great way to get to know are CEO, what he will be doing for us as well as meet are fellow travellers! Immediately after the meeting, Arora made me feel welcome and I started to feel more and more comfortable around my group every day, ending up as one big family!! Arora was a fantastic CEO, I couldn't of asked for anyone better! He showed us his country from all the best ways possible, taking us to places only locals would know about, as well as showing us all the tourists attractions that we'd want to see! He was also brilliant when it came to arranging things that weren't on the itinerary. There were a few members of the group who wanted to do activities that were not on the optionals list. Even though he had never personally done these activities (whitewater rafting and zip line), he went out of his way to use his contacts and skills to arrange these for us at a reasonable price for the people would wanted to do it and the other group just stuck to the normal plans! This is what I thought was so brilliant of Arora because not many others would go to as much effort as he did! It was also great to have a laugh and relax with Arora. He worked so hard and was so alert when we were moving from place to place and doing activities that it was great when we could all have a drink as a group and relax:) I couldn't have asked for a better CEO or group to have spent my first 16 days travelling with. I have made some great friends for life as well as great contacts for future references! Would like to say none of this would have been the same if we didn't have Arora as out CEO! I would recommend this trip to anyone would wants to see a country from all different perspectives and meet other travellers. It's great value for money and helps you learn the basics of travelling. BRILLIANT, FANTASTIC AND UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE! Would travel with G Adventures again for sure!

    Tofasttofasttofast. Our guide was a fun guy but as a guide/Leader/CEO(??) he was not great. never a straight answer(joked instead of giving a straight forward answer), always had to be reminded(about things that mattered), ran out of money (had to borrow from the group), took a week to remember everybody's names (this should only take 2-3 days), could never be found (would dissapear at meal times/evening times, times when you needed him) and only ever did the minimum required.
