“The guides were lovely - especially Sandy and Nancy. They were very thoughtful and sensitized to our needs. We enjoyed their excursions, and the cultural and historical background that they provided along the way. Our travel was seamlessly carried out by them, with no glitches. They were both frolicsome as well, and that always helps. ”
