A Recent Review of this tour

Vitoria was absolutely amazing in setting up and guiding this tour. She is incredibly knowledgeable and shared the deep and complicated history of this country in a compelling and understandable way. This gave me a better understanding and context for the places and people we would meet and interact with. Oh my.... Could I adopt Tatiana as my own grandmother.... Her song to the bride had me in tears... No translation needed. I felt so privileged and welcomed to her family home. I'd go on if I could!
