    2.0 - Rather poor

    Myself, my husband and daughter have just arrived home from the Costa Rica Adventure Tour from 21 Dec 17 - 6 Jan 18. Unfortunately it is a holiday to remember for all the wrong reasons! The hotels varied from being totally unacceptable with no external windows and in poor repair to tired and disappointing and one was so bad that after one night we checked out and rebooked the remaining 2 nights, elsewhere. This caused us to question future hotels and when we checked reviews online, decided they were not to standard and rebooked a total of 6 nights away from the tour at a personal additional cost of $1800 as it was across the Xmas & New Year period. After rejoining the group afterwards, one member told us that the Magsasay Lodge was so bad that it should be knocked down and never rebuilt. The whole tour was a disappointment with our CEO being generally disinterested in what we wanted to get out of the trip. Interested only in booking (commission based?) extreme activities and gave minimal help with any other interests ie: horse riding, paddle boarding, wildlife.On asking where his next trip would be, he told me it was a National Geographical tour who wanted to learn about the country and wildlife - I was most insulted as we and most others would go on a trip to Costa Rica based on the bio-diversity and varied interesting wildlife and bird life - however, he would not know of our interest as he barely spoke to us to find out! Often the local drivers and guides were more interested, informative and friendly. To us, our CEO seemed, introverted, disinterested and sullen. We were booked to go on the Central America Tour in March but as we have lost all confidence in G Adventures we will definitely not be going.

    Well organised tour with good transport and accomodations. Plenty of activities available to do with local operators or just by yourself. Tight and busy travelling schedule, one extra relax day in most locations would be nice, but that is always the case with these kind of tours .

    This was our first G adventure trip in 2007. It was amazing from the guides to the accommodations and the food. This as a great way to see the country. We celebrated New Years Eve in the rainforest.

    Wonderful 16-day Costa Rica trip with G Adventures. This was my first experience with G Adventures and Tour Radar and I would say it was great. Everything was well planned. All the travelers on the trip were very friendly and nice. Will certainly recommend to my friends.

      I am a single traveller. How much do I have to pay extra?

      We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do
      not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip.

      The website was easy to use and the tours were easy to select and compare. The staff were brilliant and really helpful when calling. I love the chat feature between the tour operator and I! It was perfect and allowed me to ask questions without having to call up constantly. Awesome company and I'll be using them again in the future.
