5 stars
“A very good tour with an expert Tour Manager in the excellent Ed Nicholson. The only less than good thing was trouble with DHL and the luggage service, which involved packing bags and itemising contents more than a week before travel. Might not use that service again but there was a good small group on this tour and I will certainly book with GRJ again.
