Visiting any foreign destination can be awkward and confusing to the first-time visitor.
I realize that price is important to everyone and sometimes things look less expensive on the Internet, but you will find that by the time you pay for all of the daily expenses and extras, you have actually spent about the same or more than if you had gone with one of our hassle-free packages. The internet makes it look easy to book and plan a vacation, please remember you are going to a foreign country to run a marathon, you are on vacation not running around trying to figure out what to see and do during your time there. What is your vacation worth?
