This is a relaxing way to see the amazing temples and tombs. Our guide was very informative and allowed us to see things at our pace.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2011

Very good accommodations, excellent food, great guide. Very enjoyable. The 8 day tour is actually a 3 day tour down and 4 day tour up. Most people only go one way. The round trip is very relaxing. The tour was very good value.
