    For the private tours that I did, UME Travel provided me with either a luxury car or resort, but the stars of the service were great.

    Specially mentioned their guides. All were government-certified tour guides and they were truly outstanding. Their knowledge of the history, architecture, culture, food, ways to avoid the crowds and lines and unique places to see were all wonderful.

    I recommend taking Alex's advice on locations to visit. Tell him what you like and he will plan the itinerary for you. He is more knowledgeable and will give useful suggestions than random vacationers searchedon the Internet.
