The trip is being fantastic. Every place, every hotel, everything the guides say is anticipatedly programmed, is previously checked, well managed and thought of thinking in the goal of the comfort of the passenger. The group is diverse, mostly from Europe, various contries, and the guides try to make us get to know each other. I do not have sufficient words to say how wonderful everything has been, from the cities, the parks, the optionals, the people, all is beeing the trip of my life, the one I have always dreamed of. Thank you, Gotobus. I hope I will keep traveling with you the rest of my life.
