Reviews
       

"As mentioned previously we had an amazing time.

Wherever we went everyone was so friendly and helpful and also inquisitive-lovely to be approached and to be asked for photos or for people wanting to practise their English-particularly the children.

The General Arrangements were excellent-Border crossings very entertaining-weather lovely (so lucky)-Food Good!

We would like to compliment all the guides - and drivers too ( apart from the guide day 11-although he tried to be friendly ) as they were so nice and helpful and informative.

All excellent!

Particular top marks to Maria -our last guide -she was brilliant and really knew her stuff and was great to chat to about all sorts of things-

All in all a very special and enjoyable holiday had by us all!

Very well organised, with very knowledgeable guides and competent drivers. Tiring at times, covering such a large area but so well worth it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others"
