    LOVED this itinerary. Everything about it was exceptional.

    The trip its self was really fun. The only bad thing was after a 9 hour drive we would have to get back onto the coach for a three hour bus tour. This happened on two days and it's extremely tiriring, most people fell asleep. Using local guides (like for the metro tour and walking tours) was a really great idea because they gave you a real understanding of the culture. There was also a massive age gap between me and 3 girls and the majority of the group so they fact they roomed the younger ones together really helped (I'm not sure if it was by chance or not). Age gaps normally aren't a problem but unfortunatly it was this time.
    Our tour guide Biana was really kind, looking out for everyone even when some members of the tour were behaving unhelpfully). She was very insightful and always kept a smile on her face. I would love for her to be my tour guide again.
