Heather and Eugene were excellent conducting the tour. We think the hotels were very exclusive and the restaurants were great. We suggest that less exclusive hotels would be sufficient so more meals and activities like museums could be included. We spent a lot of time traveling. We suggest two separate tours visiting two cities with more activities and meals and scheduling the tours so travelers can attend both . We have enjoyed foody tours before as a part of the activities which could make the cost less for a lunch.
Vacation
The cost could be reduced by scheduling less exclusive hotels and reducing the number of cities visited. We enjoyed all of the cities, but were not able to visit some of the museums.

Too little time, rushing at lunch, need to advise that perfume & bengay or other allergens are detrimental to others on the bus together.
