My family and I really enjoyed the Lumbini tour to visit the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama. It was an enlightening experience for the entire family. The tour guide patiently shared his knowledge of the temples. Also, our driver was fantastic and safely got us to our destination. We really appreciated his service.
