EXCEPTIONAL: plane, train, boat & bus! Perfect adventure, perfect length, perfect tour director.

Even though we weren't informed that the train is usually running late, I had the best time ever. We were so glad that we upgraded to Prestige. It made the train ride so much more enjoyable.

The train ride and being on the train for 3 days was an experience I have never done before, but it was enjoyable. The tour director was very knowledgeable and had a great personality and took care of everything that was expected of him. I will recommend this trip to my friends, but the sleeping room on the train needs to be upgraded and they should have some connection with the outside world like a television or WiFi connection because at the present time, there is no connection and not much to do in the train ride.

Everything about this trip was first class.
