Hi, thank you for leaving the comment to us! About the autumn leaves display, we are really sorry this year the best time to view autumn leaves was delayed, and until last day of this course leaves were still not completely colored! We appreciate your understanding on the case :) Besides that, hope this tour was not too bad and you had a nice day with it! Best wishes for future trips!
