    Our tour had a good itinerary and lucky to have a great group, but our guide was poor and did not help with learning about the country/culture/education at all and was uninterested in the job.

    This tour was incredible. We had so much fun. There is so much flexibility to really do whatever you want to. You can do as much or as little as you want. Berny was so great and knowledgeable. We can’t wait to go on our next adventure.

    We had a great honeymoon on this tour. The accommodations were nice, activities plentiful and varied, reasonable travel time between destinations, and the CEO, Danny, was a wealth of knowledge. It was really nice.
