We were all asked via email to write a review of this tour - and I never do that - however, I felt I had to on this occasion as it was absolutely fabulous. The tour, the guide and the river. Short journeys, great hotels and company, great music, great nights out - wonderful attractions and beaches...and best of all great value for money. Thanks a lot guys, see you next year.

Did this one in 2022 and didn't complete a review - however, just back from another tour with Travelling Time and have booked number three....they are a joy to travel with. The GALA tour was great...from start to the end - we added a cruise from New Orleans to Mexico to the end of our tour as did several of the group. Made it into a 15 day holiday. Wonderful - thanks Linda, Rachel and Shawn.
