We waited three years to go on this trip due to Covid. It was worth the wait and more. The culture, scenery, food, and guides, surpassed my expectations. Each day was a new adventure to look forward to. The rock-hewn churches were surreal! Truly a well-rounded itinerary. We love the social pledge, glad our money's going to a good cause. Highly highly recommended!
