Liz's review for another Sundowners Overland tour
“We thoroughly enjoyed Mountains and Monasteries. It comprehensively covered everything possible to see and do. The tour leader was outstanding and organisation faultless. We now have a better understanding and appreciation of 3 different cultures, their history and geography and aspects of a shared past. We highly recommend the tour.”

Andrew's review for another Sundowners Overland tour
“This is a fascinating journey through remarkably unspoiled countries. Every day provided a place of great beauty or interest. The small group gelled into a very happy gathering. We were lucky to have such a wonderful tour leader, who contributed so much at every level.”
