Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
The first night of the tour was a bit disorganized. The tour guide didn't speak to everyone at once. Instead, we had to approach him to get information, etc. but it was smooth after that. The optional excursions didn't seem worth the price. But overall, it was a very good experience and we enjoyed it.
