Overall, we had a fantastic trip and we were really lucky to have the undivided attention of Sam and Robbie. You have great trip leaders, very sociable despite the age difference among us. We had stupendous treatment at the first lodging. We liked all our hotels.
Thank you for a wonderful week. We had a great trip.
Thank you for the great experience.
We had great guides (Flynn and Martin). Lots of fun and very professional. We learned a lot about the history but we would have liked to have someone from the area.
