Chloe's review for another G Adventures tour
“This trip was absolutely incredible. You got a real taste of all the different cultures, cuisines and how life in each country would be. The places we visited were both iconic and hidden treasures. There were both fast paced, hectic and slow paced, relaxed days. The experience overall was great, the food, the accommodation, the group and the price met or exceeded expectations”
