    Wonderful. We had a thoroughly nice group of people to travel with, and though it was pretty fast paced, we all stuck with it and got the most out of our time together.

    The tour itself was great for what it was. I wouldn’t do it again only because it was too go go go with not enough time in most places. We’d drive all day and arrive at our destination with very little time to enjoy it as it would get dark and cold fast.... Read more

    Some of the meals and accommodation was not up to standards. There were some optional extras that was oversold. Overall the tour was average at best.

This is a great way to get to know your group and enrich your travel experience! If you would prefer a little more privacy, a single supplement can be paid, which will guarantee you your own room for the duration of the tour. Please contact our Travel Experts to arrange this.

    • Should I book pre/post tour accommodation?
