We just returned from a BOE 21 days tour and we had such a great time! I wrote a short commentary every day with a few pics while everything was fresh in my mind, I'd be happy to send the link to anyone who is interested. Bear in mind it is more of a quick journal than a polished blog!
We were a bit nervous of being put with people we didn't know but as I have heard repeatedly on this site our fellow tourists were one of the best highlights of the trip, we had a fun loving and friendly group which goes for our guide and driver as well.
I know we never would have been able to experience all that we did in such an enjoyable, insightful manner on our own as we did on this tour, even though we both read up a lot on the details of our itinerary. The bus was very comfortable and we felt safe with our skilled driver. It was nice to have breaks every two hours and many included sight seeing opportunities as well.
I'm happy to answer whatever questions that I can!
