‘I did this trip on my own and was quite worried I wouldn’t meet anyone. I met loads of great people who I still stay in contact with! Our group had a total of 19 people between the ages of 20 and 70-ish. Our tour guide was great. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and easy-going. I highly recommend this trip!’
