                I think G is a great way to travel in a group, their routes are clearly well planned and allow to take in as much of the country as possible, however it wasn't perfect.

                It is an easy way to travel. There you meet really nice people, it's good organised, friendly and good guides. All in all it is a really good experience.

                Travelling by tour takes the hassle out of planning and a great way for solo travellers to meet people. Although I'm not sure I'd recommend a 7/8 week tour as it's extemely tiring and hard going.

                I had high expectations for this trip and it managed to exceed. The group makes a trip I couldn't of asked for a better group of people.

                It would have been a 10 but the way the management of G dealed with the closed borders to Chile really disappointed me!
