Group size, traveling with 49 guests on a very crowded bus. All group meals are less satisfactory due to its sheer size. Group dinners were loud and unable to know other travelers at a deeper level. Hotels often located away from amenities important to tourists. It's not easy to get a good orientation from a city map

By Debora G on May 20, 2018

The itinerary was much better than the descriptions. I would suggest a lot more detail.

By Maureen F on Mar 25, 2018

Excellent tour w/ very personable Tour Director. The optional experiences were the best ever. Wonderful group of travelers to share this experience, hotels were great.
