A very well organized vacation; great suggestions to use Continental airlines - flights down and back were on time and good connections; guides adapted to weather, provided lots of options for activities each day, allowed us to make decisions about what we wanted to do, and provided alternatives each day; staff throughout the trip were very pleasant, and skilled at their jobs. I really appreciated their understanding of the information they shared with us and their obvious enthusiasm for their job.
