all hotels were no better than 3 star properties that had a restaurant, the boat was a nightmare!

By Martha N on Sep 06, 2013

I would say that many of us were surprised by the fewer things that were included by this tour company. Especially the meals...only 4 dinners were included in 16 days, and only one lunch. Also most of the activities were extra excursions.
