    All went fine with the tour

    4.0 - Good

    So much to see and do. You do need to be relatively fit to get the most out of it. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful and, of course, the sights, culture and people made the whole experience really enjoyable.

  • Marcia9th August 2018
    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
