    4.5 - Excellent

    We had a terrific trip. Pip, our driver and guide, was fabulous. He did a great job showing us his country and gave us lots of information and history so we understood what we were seeing. The back roads were so scenic - so much better than taking the main roads, He really tried to make sure that everyone had a great trip. Most of the restaurants were excellent and the accommodations were great except for the castle.
