Caravan Tours

March 2013. 10 day tour with Caravan was outstanding. Everything as advertised. Top rated hotels. Fantastic tour guide Martha. A tour guide, easy to understand, full of knowledge, communicated very clearly and had a sense of humor. Yes, there are long bus rides between cities, but we were glad we didn't rent a car and had to drive the same distance. Very few divided highways, endless "S" curves and roads in some parts, that were not in the best condition. Tour was well paced and the question most asked was "is how do they do it." We estimate doing the trip on our own would have cost twice as much with a car rental, food and hotels comparable to the ones we stayed at and without a guide, luggage transfer etc. The only additional cost was the recommended well deserved gratuity for the host tour guide and driver We never exchanged currency as hotels and shops took credit cards. Used our Capital One card to avoid foreign transaction fees. Britt coffee is great and available at a good price, cheaper then the Britt store itself, in supermarkets.

First time traveling with Caravan, will do it again and highly recommend. There was a variety of age groups, including one family traveling. on our tour.

Yeah Caravan's a nice tour, isn't it? This is the tour where I found bird watching can be fun when you have a guide who knows birds.

Glad you had fun.
