    It was a self guided tour, so I can only tell something about the accommodations. The hotels were 3 star, the rooms were small but nice and clean. All operated perfectly!

    Self-guided tour - a great way to see so much of the country on your own time but with having all the hotels and transportation booked for you. Very well organised. I highly recommend it.
