Frequently Asked Questions
The organisation of directing tourists to buses was not very welcoming as we were corraled by an organiser who was more like a cra...nky kindergarten teacher than a professional service provider. Then we had to wait half an hour for one couple on a the shuttle bus and we were told we would not be making up the time.The locations we visited were beautiful, but particularly as Ville d'este we really could have used the missing half hour.
