Tour Director was excellent (we have found this on all tours we have taken). Stopped at some very nice places en route and the optional tours were very good but are getting very expensive which means fewer people are booking them. Transfer from airport to first hotel meant we were at the airport nearly 3 hours - 2 hours between transfers is not good enough if you just miss a transfer due to one hour wait for luggage to arrive. City Tours were mainly on the coach rather than walking tours. A couple of hotels are a bit far out from City centres although otherwise quite good (one could not cope with so many coaches leaving at 8 am as no room in restaurant, run out of food, long queues for drinks etc.).
