The tour director, Jorge, was incredibly organized and knowledgeable, who focused on providing us with the best experience possible. The local guides enhanced the specific locations. The extra legroom on the coach and the seating rotation provided comfort and encouraged friendships. The advice, expectations and itinerary made every day special!

The booking experience was fine, after having to apply a bit of pressure to get the single supplement we requested. At first we were told that we would have to keep calling back day by day to determine if it was available, and that there was no way to keep a record that we had requested an extra room if available. I found that a bit ridiculous; fortunately they were able to help us.
Vacation
First, it is ridiculous to count the day you leave the US as day 1 of the trip. The trip was identical to Gate 1's trip, but more expensive. The optionals were overpriced; the food in general was not nearly worth what we paid. Many of the city stops were not a visit at all,as we would arrive quite late in the day, bus ride thru town, and leave the next morning. This was more a series of LONG bus rides and short visits. When we got to spend a bit of time we would have these 'death marches' where guides would not slow down so that we could make it to the next factory. The hotels were average, which would have been fine if thet were not described as much more. A disappointing trip...not the cities but the tour, tour guides, and endless bus rides. Would not take another trip witht the company involved. Since this was my ancestral home, it was particularly disappointing
