This was a great trip and a great first experience for me. All the places visited were amazing and beautiful. What really made the trip though, especially being solo on this adventure, were the people in the group. Everyone was so nice and super friendly. Everyone got along with everyone and were respectful of everyone else. Our tour guide was great and helpful as well. Can't wait to plan my next globus vacation.

Our guide and driver were fantastic. The hotels we stayed at had super great staff but the breakfasts were not good. The same everywhere and food was cold.
I had hoped for a smaller group but when I got here the small group did not exist.. there were 42 people, not the 25 I signed up for.
There was a great deal of sitting and I would have liked to get off the bus more often. The bus was nice and the train was really nice. In all it was good.
