    4.0 - Good

    Excellent, places, people and food. If you want to get to know people camping is the way to go. But its a tearful goodbye as most people doing this tour will be doing The Original. If you like to party late and wake up early and don't mind getting a little scruffy whilst doing so - and trust me its much better value for your money. This is the tour. But check out The Original first since its the same just half as long.
