Nicole "Cesar was so amazing. He went above and beyond to book all activities, answer questions and book dinners as a group almost every night. He was hilarious and patient and made the trip so much fun. Even after the tour as I continued to travel he helped me find accommodations and gave me advice on transportation. Great tour and even better guide (Cesar), I highly recommmend and will be doing another ..."

    The tour was a great combination of historically interesting stops and several exciting excursions. The scenery was stunning. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the places visited, and he pulled all the travelers together socially, making travel and meal time extra fun. The hotels were generally much better than expected, and we were very pleased with the excursion providers and guides.

    This is a very busy tour with some long days travelling but it is an excellent introduction to the variety and excitement of Central America. It is a trip of contrasts from beautiful beaches, colonial cities and the amazing ruins of Copan. I must mention also our guide Maria who was excellent and very helpful. I recommend this tour.

    Scenic Central America rrip was okay but did not meet my expectations. Tour guide was not a guide as such but more a facilitator or organisor - a role she performed adequately but she did not even provide the very basics of information each country. Trip notes were very sketchy & lack depth of information about modes & times of transport - much time wasted with public transport rather than utilising private transportation. Standard of accommodation was generally below average with places being quite dirty - there were some exceptions to this but generally felt the level of accommodation was sub-standard.

    In my opinion this is a very varied trip which ranges from colonial cities to small islands via Mayan ruins. Our guide Maria was extremely good and very friendly. A split arose in the group between private transport and a chicken bus day. She resolved it very quickly and effectively leaving both sides happy. There is a lot of travelling on this tour. Personally I didn't mind it but it was quite tiring. Overall a well designed tour effectively delivered. I would recommend it.

Great tour and even better guide (Cesar), I highly recommmend and will be doing another in the future. Only downfall is travel time between locations. Some of our days were 12-14 hours traveling by shuttle so be prepared that you will lose some days due to all day traveling.

    Overall, I enjoyed the Tucan Tour 'Scenic Granada' from Antigua in Guatemala to San Jose in Costa Rica. We had a good guide in Scott M, who kept us informed and up-to-date. I thought the orientation walks when we arrived somewhere new were a good idea. The small group meant we all got to know each other well over the two weeks. The local transport also kept the tour authentic, which was good. My only negative comments are about the overall value for money - given the standard of some of the accommodation, and the cost of some of transportation we took (very cheap in places!). The hotel in Leon was appalling - awful rooms, tiny bathrooms which were almost impossible to use and terrible breakfast. On the other hand, we stayed in some lovely hotels in Roatan and Ometepe Island. There wasn't much else included in this tour other than hotels and transportation which is what drew my attention to the value for money (£1,000 for 2 weeks).

    Hi Phil, Thank you for taking the time to leave such detailed feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip through Honduras and Nicaragua with Scott. We are constantly monitoring the quality of our accommodation so we will take a look at the hotel in Leon for future tours. We hope to see you on another Tucan Travel tour in the future. Kind regards, Jess @ Tucan Travel

    Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
