Overall, the trip was an excellent experience. The Sites visited were varied and interesting. The Tour guide and coach driver were a good team with both contributing to and making the time spent together fun and educational. The tour guide made an extra effort to make unplanned stopes at interesting locations as time allowed and provided frequent rest stops which were much appreciated. The hotels were clean and modern with good a restaurant and above average breakfast offering. The tour provided experiences I might not have had if traveling independently and was good value for money. I will look to travel with Smartours again and recommend Smartours to others.
