One day of trip was long long long bus drive -- did not expect it to take so long. Very poor comfort stop, and no real care by the tour guide about this -- nothing he could do. This was a Globus trip, and was below their ususal standard. Wasn't junk, mind, but was not great. The itinerary was great, what we saw was great, but the tour guide and was only so-so and I guess it was his lack of competent professionalism that leaves us feeling flat.
