the guides who took care of us were especially wonderful. The accommodations were more than satisfactory and the rail experience was very enjoyable.
Being picked up at each location and escorted to the next connection made the travel a breeze. And the free time in each city to use on our own was lovely.
It was great that someone met us at the airport and each train station with transportation returning as well. Every guide in each city was helpful and made everything easy!
