    Thank you Mr. Areeb for cordinating the transfers. We didn't have to worry regarding the transportation because every thing was spot on. We were received and dropped by Mr. Mujhid who was spot on. Mr. Quasim Ali was friendly and very informative during our sightseeing and I would give hi
    m a 5 star service. Mr. Abed with his off-road driving skills made our adrenaline pumping. And once again thank you Mr. Areeb for making our vacation a memorable one. Thank you Miss. Jhanvi for helping us plan this wonderful vacation and everything was spot on as per the itinerary. My only suggestion would be to improve the quality of the food at the camp site. None of us liked it. Anyway once again thank you so much for your patience as we had to make a lot of changes to the itinerary from the start.
