Better off Backpacking

07 Jan 2012 - 20 Jan 2012

If you're interested in sighseeing avoid this company and tours you're better off backpacking on your own. I've backpack before and this was my fist time going on a "guided" tour. Too many Australian, stuck up kids on this trip. These people were interested in just getting drunk. The beds were horrible. It's the winter time, low season. we should have at least get something better. The beds were as hard as the floor. I hated the fact that we had "options" I though everything was included. The tour manager kept saying to tip the guides, the bus driver and even her. She wanted 26 euros for her and 26 for the driver. We were 51 people, THAT'S 1326 euros EXTRA!! My package included that already so I wasn't going to pay anyone additional tips. The dinner at Monaco and the good bye dinner should have been included. Avoid the winter is too cold and some places are not even open. They took us to Portovino. There was one restaurant open and the whole island was deserted. Waste of my life. i WOULDN'T RECOMEND THIS COMPANY TO ANYONE..SORRY BUT I EXPECTED MORE THAN WHAT I GOT
