There was NO stress. NO STRESS on a vacation in a foreign country! My husband and I went with his parents and two older siblings and we all commented on how easy the trip was.
I would recommend this trip to anyone! It's well worth the price you pay. And to be honest, the service and care you receive is WAY ABOVE the price. It was the BEST service I have EVER received!
