“Overall the trip was excellent and exceeded our expectations. Emma was a fantastic tour leader and was a great help when one of our party needed help getting medication. We booked it as it was our first time booking such a trip so it afforded us the luxury of participating in as many activities as we liked. However, as we participated in most of them it cost us much more than we anticipated. The photos that we were offered at the end were an additional unexpected expense that we would have appreciated being warned about at the beginning. Nevertheless, the trip was great and our 13 year old loved it. ”
