Mr Michael Pepper

This holiday exceeded our expectations. Our Tour Manager, Agnieshka, was exceptional - extremely friendly, very well organised and with encyclopaedic knowledge of every place we visited. The only slight negative was that the visits to some of the historic sites with local guides were rather too hurried which gave a number of people in our group (those with certain mobility issues) some distress. Perhaps future adverts for this holiday should indicate a higher activity level. I will certainly be recommending this amazing touring experience to others.

We did not know that this was a "history lesson"...

20th September 2017
Mr Jason clifton

We did not know that this was a "history lesson" or that it was a walking holiday. We bought on-line and the description was not that detailed or clear enough. We would not have taken a walking holiday. As for the tour it was super, just not what we expected The guides were very thorough, even if the accent was a little tricky at times, especially through an ear piece. This is a very full-on tour, tiring and lots of travel. Ok if you are fit and healthy. Optional excursions are too expensive and the tipping rates too high for most people. We could not afford 138 Euros on top of the holiday cost, meals to buy and spending money..

As previously said the tour was very well organised but was too hectic which resulted in early morning starts and late arrival at hotel. We had VIP home pick up included in the holiday which worked extremely well going from home to the airport but was a complete shambles on the airport to home journey - Not very impressed
