Jack "Wonderful experience with an absolute GEM of a tour Leader - Could not recommend this tour enough, John was the tour leader to rule all tour leaders.

Travelled through Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Pan..."

    Thanks for the review Kristina. We agree - 8 girls and 1 bathroom is not a great formula. We apologize for the difficulties here.

    A good, well organised trip that takes you to some of the less visited spots in Central America (at least while Nicaragua is being bypassed). I was impressed with G Adventures travel ethic and the interesting, fun people they attract to their tours.... Read more

    This is a whirlwind sightseeing tour and not a carefree backpacking trip. We had hours of travel on the bus almost every day, and there were multiple days that had bus-boat-bus transfers, so consider your travel stamina before you sign up. It is not an... Read more

    Was not overly impressed and would have second thoughts about using again. Not sure how much that was the impact of the individual or guides...

    The website is very user friendly and the selection of tours far exceeded that of traditional travel agents. I wanted to visit 3 specific countries that are close to each other and one of the only places I could find such a tour was through tourradar.
