    4.0 - Good

    This was a very good and very thorough itinerary. The guide and driver were excellent, and the accommodations were largely decent. My main concern is with the coach itself. The seats are very tightly packed, and taller passengers might find comfort to be a challenge. I am very tall, and the guide and the group were gracious enough to let me have the one seat that I could sit straight ahead in. I get that this may be a necessary evil to keep the prices reasonable (and eliminating a few seats would necessarily increase the price per passenger),

    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
