review 21 Jan 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The countries themselves and the great variety of sightseeing, activities etc.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared to spend significant sums on the excursions (only two included and the meals (none included apart from last breakfast) and don't book your flights via Intrepid!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

7 out of 10 Overall good but three issues for you to consider: 1. The trip looked like good value for money on paper but the fact that no meals were included and only two excursions meant that overall it was a great deal more expensive than we had expected. This should be made clearer in the trip details. 2. Our leader was very good in terms of personal relations, helping out with problems, organisation and choice of restaurants but she told us nothing about the countries we were visiting nor did she point out points of interest during our long periods on the road. 3. Our flight arrangements, which we booked through you, were a fiasco and caused us some distress.
