    5.0 - Excellent

    I thoroughly enjoyed every day of this trip. Our guide Brian was awesome and knew lots of great places to visit in all the cities we visited. The tour was fantastic value for money. I had previously looked in to doing the tour independently and it would've cost a similar amount but going through G all stress was removed. We did break down in the middle of the new Mexican desert but the tour operator and Brian were very quick to sort out alternative transport. Look forward to doing a tour in future with G

    2.5 - Average

    I would like to say that I enjoyed this trip because on paper, it is awesome. The only problem is when you join tours, you don't choose the people on the tour with you or the tour guide. On this trip, I travelled with some amazing people who I am still in touch with to this day. The other group of people I travelled with consisted of some of the most selfish and rude people I have ever met in my life - that included the obnoxious, lech (after a few drinks) of a tour guide. Like I said, when you book a tour that will include people you don't know, it's the risk you take however sharing a tent with someone who hated camping, cooking or doing any sort of manual work for around three weeks is pretty draining. In stark contrast, I did a tour of New Zealand with Contiki and everyone got on with each other so I know who I would rather book a trip with again.
