Their agent was very thorough. Loved the follow up and make sure we had everything covered. I wish they could have booked my pre and post hotel stays where I wanted. But that is a small price to pay. Good detail and everything was as planned. CIE has had great drivers and guides. They move so everything stays smooth. They try and insure your needs and whims are met. I have traveled there 9 times and CIE's tours have been among the easiest and most inclusive.
