We had wonderful weather for our trip. Really enjoyed the commentary. Greenwich was a fantastic take. If you go, plan to spend the day. We didn't even make it to the market! We will just have to to back!

We weren’t able to travel because of an accident and I cancelled the tour 5 days prior, received the cancellation via email but La Vacanza Travel said that they didn’t cancel the tour and charged me anyway. Won’t use them again.
