    Excellent Tour Director
    5/16/24 by 2nd-time traveler Patricia

    Carole was, by far, the best tour director we have ever had. Understanding my dietary restrictions, she ensured my meals were prepared correctly. Her meticulous attention to details for myself,as well as the group, made the trip an exceptional experience.
