  • Paul's review about another Explore! tour
    4.7 - Excellent

    the trip contained a number of optional packages it would be useful to have some sort of price guidance on these so one could budget in advance.

  • Sharon's review about another Explore! tour
    4.3 - Excellent

    I would just like to reiterate how good the leader (Hans Korsika) was. He helped make the holiday one of the best I have ever had.
