    Let me make sure I tell you I went on this trip by myself and I had awesome time! Our tour Manager Ebo was very thorough!! This trip was awesome!!! I have no complaints. We didn't have worry about anything and we we're well informed prior to the trip. I would recommend that you go a day earlier to rest so that you don't have jetlag when staring the tours. I was extremely tired the first day and I would also recommend you stay a day later to enjoy Niceâ?¦It was beautiful!!
