Hotels/guesthouses were all fantastic. Good locations, pleasant hosts. The first night's included meal was a bit of a let-down, as the intended restaurant was closed and none of the staff at the replacement spoke English. Also, while breakfasts were all good, some did not serve until 8:00 or even 8:30 on weekends, rendering an early departure impossible. Collett's provided highly detailed descriptions of the tour (for example, not just the class of hotel, but the actual names of hotels for each location) and we were impressed by the brochure descriptions. Value for money - Very much so. Great range of hotels and Javier was always available by phone or text if we had questions. Having a packed lunch every day was very convenient.
