    The trip was great, lots of variety and adventure. We also had a really nice group, having a good laugh along the way. Reasonably good value for money. Our CEO, Suzy, was great, she was full of information and helped us to have a wonderful trip.

    The trip was the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. I enjoyed exploring the communities and wonders of Mexico while still being able to opt in to down time.

    I really enjoyed that we were given choices as to what we wanted to do. It allowed for a very personalized and diverse vacation. I also really appreciate the local support that G is able to provide to the communities.
