Over all the hotels tour guide,coach,driver and locations with local tour guides were excellent but am only giving four stars as we thought the stops enroute while travelling should be longer since there were a lot of people in the ques and if you happened to be near the back by the time the food or drink was served it was almost time to get back on the coach.

Would not hesitate to do another tour with Archers though.
