Great experience, he answered all our questions and we had a magnificent trip.

Excellent tour director (Patrick Davis) he endeavored to teach us about each region by language, food, drink, and entertainment. He got to each site before the masses of other tourists arrived. He endeared himself to each couple or individual that was traveling. The flourishes, which were treats he would purchase for the whole group, were designed to teach us about the area we were visiting. They were all delicious and exotic. He was well organized and personable. We also had great coach drivers. We felt safe and secure. We took over 600 pictures and we will remember this trip for the rest of our lives.
