Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
I enjoyed every aspect of this trip! There were only a few issues that I had with one or two of the excursions (a bit pricey for the event and I provided a survey regarding my feedback. Otherwise, I loved the experience. I have been singing the praises of Heidi, the tour guide Erica and the hotel accommodations and each location! I was in bliss the entire trip and Erica is a total package! She is knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, engaging and very cool! We loved her! Thank you and I will travel with Globus again!
The itinerary was good. Most of the optional tours are not worth it. We loved the free days.
A very well organized trip equals less headache and fruitful vacation.
