Fantastic Tour with Great Guide!
Arun, our guide, was fantastic! He showed us stuff we would have never found on our own. He was tremendously informative, pleasant, and patient. Pace was great, and the food he turned us onto was really good. He did a great job bargaining for us for a purchase from the market. Prompt pickup. All interactions with the company in terms of set up and then getting photos afterward was smooth and efficient.
