    It was excellent. The scenery was wonderful and all the towns we stopped in interesting . It was well organised and Ludi our guide was superb. Organised, good company and very informative. Not as much carrying of bags as we.d envisaged which was even better!

      The prices were very competitive and what I really liked was that it was in my local currency. When I booked the confirmation came back in good time. Since then I have received more correspondence regarding the trip, which is good to see and very informative.
