5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Going on a Wednesday morning was great--tour ended up being a private one! Tour guide said sometimes he has 20 ppl in a group, so this was great! I also accidentally forgot to schedule the pick-up 24hrs ahead of time, so when we had our hotel call and make the arrangements at 8am, they were picking us up from the hotel at 9am. It was great they were still able to service us with such short notice.
We also had Pedro as a tour guide---his English was pretty good and he was a pretty funny tour guide and gave us a local's perspective on things too. Very much recommend this tour, especially if you get lucky enough to have a very small group!

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

It was nice city tour!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2013

This tour should be three hours and they only do for two hours and they did not bring us to the shopping stores . They did not bring us to see the church but they took us to see a temple. May be because they only have two of us but that should not be the reason for not doing it completely. The guide is OK with good English.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this November 2012

It was not a city tour. We were only taken to a buddhist temple and a mosque. The landmark of the 3 frontiers is nice to see but there is nothing else there. Before the tour ended, we were brought to a restaurant by the river but lunch was not included. The airconditioning of the van was broken.
