"I am very happy that I chose this tour. I felt very homely with the whole group. The tour manager was very good. I dread how the experience would have been with the Chinese tours without other Indians. The booking representative did a wonderful job and should be thanked. I will definitely recommend your tour to my friends & family."
Mr. V.K Velayudham, Chicago
