The trip was overall amazing and I enjoyed it a lot. Our group, tour leader and driver was an amazing combination of people. My rating only is 9 points because of the too long drives in the bus especially during the last week of the tour. I came quite well along with the 14 dutch participants and felt fully integrated. Anyways, I'm very experienced among international people. Besides I find it a pity that shoestring isn't that well know in coutries outside the Netherlands. I personally recommend my international friends about shoestring.
