    Well planned itinerary, some great activities included but still plenty of time to do your own thing, and all of the travel and accommodation is organised for you. Also, group leader (CEO) was fantastic

    It was well organized, the group was small, it was a great way to travel to countries that don't speak a lot of English or share the same alphabet!
