Tour was excellent. Enjoyed the township tour but the food hall tour we could have skipped.
Gift is very knowledgeable welcoming and and excellent man.”
Our tour guide, Makenzy, was really amazing.
Our cook, John, surprised us with a very good food every single day.
Our driver, Tom, was also amazing.
These three people really made our trip.”
Hess was amazing. He was very organized and efficient. Very impressed by his people skills and his ability resolve issues and avoid any conflicts. I know that some of our group thought that he was not well organized or interactive enough. I learned that they were young and this was their first time traveling with a tour. We have traveled several times with Gate One, Roads Scholars, and Affordable Asia, so we have extensive experiences in which to make a comparison. Hess was highly organized, what they took as complacent, was his astute awareness as to when to back off and let us have alone time or chances to interact with each other. Everything we requested was accomplished. How he kept it all straight is beyond most people's abilities. One of the best guides we have ever had. ”
