    Had the most amazing 10 days. It does go very quick and is very fast paced but you knew this would be the case when you booked on to do 8 countries in 10 days! You really don't need anymore time than a day or two in each place as the daily itinerary... Show more

    We had a fantastic tour guide and driver, who made sure we all got along really quickly. The tour had enough flexibility but it was still packed enough to keep us busy. There was never a dull moment on the tour, and I have made friends for life!
