Hi shital,

Nov last week gets chilly. Do carry woollens for kids. You can expect night temp. falling below 10 towards nov end. Otherwise its good time since days are usually sunny.

I usually advice people to book on their own. As such the tour cost appears on higher side since all transfers are by bus. I think you can do the same tour yourself in a taxi at the same cost....... Plus the flexibility.....
