Jade "The leader and driver were great, looking after us as if we were friends. The tour pace was about right, it was never 100% clear upfront what all the plans were for each day which was often nice, as we had an idea from the itinerary but some of the little stops etc were just built in to fit the vibe. There were a couple of key things included each day as per the itinerary, but also time to ours..."

    What a trip! First, compared to most similar small group tours I've taken (where 4-5* Western hotels & buffets are not the norm), I was pleasantly surprised by the hotels. They were all small boutique hotels (except one) and very centrally located. Two... Read more
