Every thing was fine . Could use little more time for lunch but that's not a big deal
The tour and cities we visited were great, Insight Tours were good with the itinerary, the hotels were excellent very good location and the driver very cautious and very good, the only complain is the Tour Conductor was really bad, no knowledge about the cities, no desire to give us information, no changing seats on the bus, in general no desire to work and that made the trip not as good as I would like to.
It's simple: You refer your friends, family, and anyone to us and when they book you will receive an American Express gift card worth up to $200 in the mail for simply referring.Read More
