Enjoyed Anandwan visit with my friends. Tour planning and execution were good. Tour managers were co-operative and provided a good support till the end. Liked the dinner food pack provided in the return journey.
However, AC tempo traveller was not comfortable. Should have AC bus to see the nature while travelling.
