They were professional, informative and patient when answering all our confusing and repetitive questions about locations, accommodations and language barriers.

    Great trip, awesome people, would have loved to stay longer in some places and shorter in others but thats the nature of this experience.

    Let's start with what wasn't so good. Firstly there were a lot more girls on this trip than boys. So the dynamic of the group could have been better. I understand this is quite normal to happen - but there must be something the tour provider can do about this.. Maybe give small discounts to boys, or do more marketing towards men specifically, to improve the ratio?! Also this trip is actually two different trips back-to-back. So the groups change half way through. This was a bit of a surprise. Apart from that everything was amazing! Great leaders, accommodation, locations, activities, food, everything! A really good way to see a lot of of Central American in a short time, and get a flavour for each place.

    Our guide was amazing - one of the best guides I have ever had - extremely warm, caring, informative, on-time, and always trying to get the best for us. The trip itself was amazing - it allowed enough time to explore each place, the hotels were basic but that's all you really need. The activities offered were great, and the other people travelling are all like-minded and a good mix of people.
