It was great. Great hotels. The only negative was the far off-site parking of buses at destinations, requiring excessive walking to the actual destination.

hotels were not centrally located. tour guide was excellant. dinners that were included in package were fair to poor. 3 full days spent on bus going from one point to another, would suggest rail transportation.
