The best bus tour trip ever. it was so much fun and full of humor. the best part was the driver of the bus ( sorry, forgot his name). he has such knowledge of the entire place. one must definitely go for it.

The driver gave a lot of information durning the whole journey. And it is easy to find the picking point. I am so happy to have a great time on that day.
