I had a wonderful time with this trip. The travel director set up the tone and pace of the trip is the best. He was never flustered and gave us updates. Our drivers superb driving kept us safe. We were given keepsakes and snacks from different regions we visited and it was a pleasure to have these. The tour was fantastic. It was hectic, but was well organized. We were 40 travellers and we had a blast. Hope to travel with you soon.

The trip itinerary was very detailed. From the booking to the end of my trip I was totally satisfied. It was my second trip, but I think I will book my future trips again. The trip director and all local guides were very knowledgeable and had great sense of humor, never boring. The optional excursions were excellent.

If people would ask me if I got my money's worth, I would reply that I got much much more than my money's worth. My trip was beyond wonderful, beyond amazing, beyond breathtaking.... Trent Plaine gave great background history of every country we visited; he took us to places morning noon and night... if there were places on the way out of a country he'd have us visit them and stop for great views. He was knowledgeable on flavors, food... the road trip was fantabulous!

The trip was well organized,the director Annarika is excellent in all aspects .our driver Marco is excellent too.They are both highly recommended in the fields they chose.In my next travel I wish I will be with them again.

Another excellent trip from start to finish. I am looking forward to my next trip already!!
