Mrs Nadine Hellawell, 10 months ago

The holiday was well planned and exceded our expectations. All the hotels were of a good standard, food was mostly good. The walking tours became a little too much of the same thing. The coach was clean and comfortable and the drivers looked after us well, and gave us plenty of helpful information.
