    The tour was very well organised with the transport between places and the destinations in each country was very well thought through with activities.

    I love group tours, they are all much the same. G was very organised and reasonably priced. I would however advise them there are lots of hidden costs eg tipping and the tours providers you go through are more expensive than elsewhere or finding it on your own

    This was my second G trip and I had the most amazing time on both. G trips allow you to see the best of countries and take all the hassle out of organising things for yourself.

    Great itinerary, great guides but the hotels were a little more expensive than I'd have chosen which made me think that the whole tour could have been cheaper if we'd stayed in less fancy places.
