    4.5 - Excellent

    Fabulous tour, loved the train ride up into the mountains. Hotels were all excellent. Transport had wifi and air con so was very comfortable. Maybe to many temples on first day. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip would definitely recommend it.

    5.0 - Excellent

    The North east explorer was certainly worth the journey - the disappointment was that half way through the trip 2 trips combined ... sadly there were then 25 people on a huge bus ... the trip lost a lot of its appeal. The buffet was tiresome but a necessity... Read more

    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
