Review summary

We enjoyed the river cruise tremendously and appreciated the opportunity to visit so many lovely, ancient cities at such a beautiful season. Good information about history, religions, and politics was provided, but more information about about the flora and fauna of these countries would have been helpful.

There was confusion regarding the address of embarkation, so we were dropped off several hundred yards from the actual embarkation point.
