    I think the tours are well planned and well paced. No early starts 😊 The guides are fabulous. Friendly, helpful, very informative. I loved having the context of where we were with language, places of interest, local culture, historical perspective. The local guides were all highly trained and engaging. Our accommodation was great. I appreciated not having to lug my case around. Just get it to the door to be picked up on time. I loved that while we had an outline of our itinerary each day, every day there was a surprise. I appreciated the quality of the included activities. I loved that it was a small group and that everyone was friendly and easy to travel with. It’s great being in the countryside and visiting villages as well as the cities with major sites that you couldn’t miss.
