“Your itinerary was perfect, and concentrated on the must sees, and yet was flexible enough to make changes as we saw fit. Each and every guide was excellent. Not only were they very knowledgeable but they were very likeable people. Each hotel seemed to be better than the last, and their positioning was excellent.”
