WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY
This is the second organized tour I've been on... this group was friendly, intelligent, curious, and fun to be with. Also, the itinerary and program were much more informative and in-depth than any self-guided trip I could have planned and took us to places I'd never have dreamed of going.”
