    The overall experience was great. The vistas were wonderful. The first hotel was fine, the second was inconsistent among guests. While our room was fine, others did not have the same experience. Both dinners provided were poorly organized and... Show more

    Would have liked more time to browse in the village and improve the food in the hotels or change the hotels. Would have prefered the hotel close to the village which would make eay to visit.

    Only negative is that the accommodation at all places was a fair way out of town and if you didn’t want to go on one of the optional tours you were stuck at the hotel with nowhere to go

    The tour met, if not exceeded, my high expectations. It was great value for money, being a superb balance between quality and price. The standard of the coach was excellent and our tour director, Terri Marshall, was simply marvellous.
