    4.0 - Good

    The trip was very well organized, no major delays or setbacks. We saw a lot and had some lovely experiences. However, the trip is geared to a much older clientele. There were very limited adventurous activities. ( hiking, kayaking, walking...) A lot of time was spent sitting, being transported. The group was too large, there were 48. The guide was knowledgeable and helpful but lacked the personal touch. She catered to the older demographic so we felt lost in the shuffle. It is unlikely we would book another tour with Trafalgar. We do have to commend the company as they finally provided compensation and assistance arranging our tour after cancelling our initial tour. Tour radar was also instrumental assisting us with the reorganization and financing of our tour. Thank You.
