“Our trip manager seemed to anticipate all things and made sure that the trip went off like clockwork; one needs a competent handler when on a trip of this complexity and he had everything well in hand allowing us to enjoy the sights…I would never attempt a trip of this complexity on my own, we were given great value and I will recommend this trip to anyone.” Sean and Zoe – Brisbane, CA
