Tours were interesting and conducted at the right pace 4 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2015
We both thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the on-shore tours. The tours were both very interesting and were conducted at the right pace. We also enjoyed the free time we had at some of the stops and think that this is an important matter when considering future cruises. We certainly will travel with Travelmarvel again.
