    A great tour with lots to see and experience. My only down point was that it felt crammed. Early mornings, late nights, with little free time to explore meant we were usually exhausted every other day of the trip.

    It is the first time i have done a tour without a van or bus as transportation for the tour. This tour uses all public transportation so often had to take luggage with you and handle yourself.
