1. It is not truly 7 countries or even 6- it is 5.
I do not count a rest stop as a country. It should not be counted as a country on the itinerary to be included with price. Also, the Vatican while is counted as a small country - should not be counted as well.
The true countries we see are Austria, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, and Italy. Also for price wise - the only countries included for price should be the ones we stay in HOSTELS for.
2. Currency information should be sent out ahead of time with the other documentation sheets. I should know all the currencies ahead of time to do exchanges. Also, a helpful currency tip sheet or money sheet should be given. For example, I would have left money in a checking account and just did ATM's - less of a fee and I get money instantly in that currency.
3. Leisure time should also come with helpful and handy places, activities, and events to do should we not choose to do the MTO. For example, after our Past and Present tour in Budapest, people went to the Salt Bathes. However, no one instructed us ahead of time to bring a bathing suit. This is something that would have been great to know so we could have partaken.
4. Room assignments need to be made ahead of time. If you are booking with another person, you should always be guaranteed to stay with them in a room. It is unfair to be separated from a friend, relative, or significant other.
