    Pick up was on time and the vehicle used was top notch. Ragesh, our guide, was great. He provided us with a lot of information and took our photos. The only issue was that he had the tendency to turn off the air condition in the car even after we requested it. Lucky that it was quite cool while in the mountains. Couldn't really figure out why he would switch it off most of the time. That's the only reason I'm giving him 4 stars.
