It was an interesting Tour. If you love to see old castles and fortresses, the mountains and hot springs, then this tour is for you. Rasheed was our driver and tour guide and we had a good time with him. He explained everything very well.

Excellent trip, charming driver/tour guide, visited many forts. Lunch not the best.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better November 2015

Ok Guide good all on time but to pay over 200 to see several forts and the main one closed so all we actually saw was a small fish market a couple of houses and the hot water springs

Rustaq we only saw from the distance
