We were the only Caucasians in the group of Asians. Our tour guide kept us close to keep us informed in English. All treated us kindly. It's a terrific way to see a long distance itinerary in comfort and value. Hotels were a little worn but clean and comfortable in good locations since meals are not provided. There was always a walking place nearby to get food/meals. We paid far less than similar English-language "name" tours. I highly recommend this to fellow value travelers who enjoy the sights, want to have some guidance and not have to drive a lot. The group gets much better prices for venues and hotels. We had enough time at all stops to enjoy without rushing. This is our second tour with this kind of group--very pleased and will do more; maybe with our grandkids.
