    "If It's Tuesday This Must Be"......oh wait, wrong movie. If I were paying that much moolah for any of our trips (not possible for us anyway), I'd prefer not to be awakened at 5 AM for a fast breakfast before boarding the bus to the airport, and we'd prefer to go it on our own anyway, and pick out destinations and sights of our own choice and times, rather then go with a set list of destinations and times.

    HOWEVER!!! The first class flights and accomodations wouldn't be too hard to take by any means.

    I'd prefer to make my own choices, which would probably not mean staying in a Four Seasons hotel at every stop.
