    3.5 - Good

    This trip was excellent, the accommodations went way beyond my expectations as did the tour bus and all the sites. However I was less than impressed with our tour guide. He seemed very knowledgeable of the places we visited however he needed to be asked and prompted if any information was going to be given. Also there were several occasions where we asked for walking directions to a location and the directions were very incorrect (if you don't know just tell us and we can figure it out). In locations where we crossed paths with other G Adventure tour groups, the other tour guides seemed much more engaged.

    Although it was a quick tour we were able to pack alot into the tour. We had a entertaining and energetic tour guide. He was able to give us alot of information and was able to answer alot of questions. When he didn't know the answer, he would find it out. Thanks Nando

Why Travel With G Adventures?

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • December 1, 2016

      Is the single supplement mandatory on this tour?

      The single supplement is not mandatory on this trip, so if you're happy to share with another traveller of the same gender, you can join this trip with no additional cost to the advertised, twin share price.

    • August 11, 2016

      I would like to join the Western Northbound Tour, however, I have questions regarding the accommodation. At any point in this tour, will I be camping? If so where and what will be provided?

      There is no overnight camping on this trip, as it is all based on twin share accommodation in hotels or similar.

    • August 1, 2016

      Can I take a hard suitcase with me as a main luggage or does it need to be a soft bag or backpack?

      You will be on the move a lot, so our advice is to pack as lightly as possible. We recommend the use of a duffel bag, soft bag or backpack (whichever you find easiest to carry).

      Heavy luggage is not recommended for the health of the CEO, who will take a lead in loading the storage trailer. Due to space in the trailer, we will not be able to accommodate more than one piece of main luggage per person. A good size day-pack (20-35L) is also essential to carry your personal gear for the day, as access to luggage between destinations will be limited. This daypack will be used to carry your personal gear for the day, your lunch and a water bottle.
