AND you get the benefit of an experienced tour manager for the entire trip! You just have to remember your passport, luggage, and spending money! The price listed on the itineraries includes everything listed in the brochure.
It does not get more Carefree than that!

"The name Carefree says it all. I never had to worry about anything.
 I thought the price was very reasonable for everything that was included.
I would definitely take another one of these tours. Thank you again, 
Agnes, for everything. You are awesome."
