beautiful trip. lovely small town visit, church, lighthouse, castles, scenic vistas. great for picture taking with a guide who is also a photographer. personally i learned a lot. we had a rainy day for part of it but all remained in good spirits. he was as well a teacher and we both leaned a lot about education system, health care, etc. don't bother with cruise excursions. this is far and away a better option. we have used tours by locals in Lima, Peru as well.
