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.

Nur was extremely versed in the subject matter, friendly, attentative, and timely. We loved his level of customer service and would highly recommend him
