The scenery was beautiful, the details were all taken care of, and we had plenty of opportunities to explore the surroundings and strike up friendships. The accommodations were quite good, but each new hostel brought questions - would the shower have a curtain, or even a way to keep the water inside the bathroom? Would the mattress and pillows be comfy? In all honestly, it was never at any point a deal breaker or a major inconvenience for me. It was just part of the adventure. But the gorgeous sights and the friends I made more than make up for any shortcomings the tour might have had. If you have the means, I highly recommend taking this tour.
