I wanted to travel with 'The Folk Tales' for quite sometime, and finally I made it for the Sikkim trip. The group was small. 10-12 people with equal men and women, and average age was around 35. It was unlike any other group tour. It was quite liberal and included everything that was mentioned in the brochure. I never felt unsafe, instead I made new friends and shared a ride with them till Darjeeling.
