    3.0 - Average

    The first 2 days of the last leg of the rail journey was a total waste of time.The visit by local ferry to see an ordinary railway station and then wait in the hotel from 11 am till 9:30 pm was a joke. Travelled overnight by train,then bus before having brunch at 4 pm was totally badly managed.

    3.5 - Good

    Over all the tour was great but due to the fact that it was made up of 5 different legs some sights/temples seemed too similar to other locations, more of a variety should be introduced. Transportation during the first leg was very poor and accommodation in general should be addressed when considering locations without AC during the peek summer.

  • James12th May 2018
    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.
