The trip was really impressive. While I was on the tour, 18 days went by very quickly, even though that's a long time. The schedule was very well put together, and there were lots of fun and interesting things to do. The tour guide in particular was very nice, knew a lot, and genuinely cared about us. I'm very happy with everything. The food was delicious, the scenery was stunning, and there were many historical sites with interesting stories to tell. I will definitely go back and explore each country on its own to fully appreciate their unique beauty. I really recommend ERA Tours.
