“We thought we had already completed a questionnaire giving a review on the hotels and our guide! A great trip far better than we expected having had to wait 3 years to travel.

Happy Customer
5 stars
“This tour of 4 cities is excellent with very good hotels, tour guides and manager. The excursions are very good with a lot of history and information about the cities. You do have to be physically fit for this tour as there are many early starts to get trains etc and a lot of walking around the cities, although use of the local transport systems can help. You also have to be prepared for changes to train timetables and other small unplanned events.
