This tour was great. WE got to see many attractions and still had some free time too. The hotels were very nice and I enjoyed the included dinners and entertainment.

By Bruce B on May 05, 2019

The rooms in the hotels were not all up to par. We had numerous rooms where the temperature was not acceptable and the size too small to be comfortable. We heard that there were much nicer rooms in the same hotel, so we feel that it is the touring company's responsibility to ensure all guests have acceptable beds and rooms that meet their needs. One hotel had a bed that was obviously an orginal and the carpeting stained and very old. We expect to be flexible in our wishes, but honestly should have tried to get better accommodations.

By Sarah A on Apr 20, 2019

The tour was everything we were promised and more. We would book another tour with CIE and work with Rose again. Everything went as she worked out for us. No problems.
