    This tour was so much better than the one we did in Morrocco. The guide and driver were exceptional and the hotels were excellent. Our guide Giovanni was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. We have recommended this tour to many of our friends.

    The tour was great. I feel though that it would have been better especially for us if they had of used the voice boxes so we could have heard all the relevant information. Our guide was way ahead of us and we missed so much. Some older people do not walk as fast as the tour guide especially when it is hot.
