What Context Travelers Say...

I loved the flexibility--great for the first day of a trip when you're still recovering from the flight and throughout the trip to fill spaces too short for a full tour.  Very knowledgable guides and the GPS navigation made me very comfortable in unfamiliar cities.  I'll be using this system again on my next trip.
