    Very comfortable vehicle. Very good driver, and very pleasant. We would ask for him again if we return.

    We had several guides at several locations. All were courteous, knowledgeable and their English was good (except the safari guide/ driver).

    We were very pleased with our experience. Our tour was packed with interesting things to see. Very pleased with the restaurants, etc our driver took us to. Impressed with the quality of accommodations for the price of our tour. A very good value, especially since some dinners were included as well.
