Enjoyed our holiday from day 1. The other guests on tour were friendly and of similiar age and interests to us. I loved the cities we visited and that our hotels were close to city centres so we could walk to attractions and cafes. The coach was comfortable and we had an excellent driver who had to drive in all types of conditions. Great holiday and looking forward to our next tour.
