    Absolute brilliant tour, with some amazing activities and great locations. Highlight was lake Atitlan and Caye caulker. Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide in Bea.

    4.0 - Good

    All in all, I really enjoyed the tour itself and all of the people that I met along the way. I feel the tour was set at a good pace and we had enough time in each place to see the main attractions. Having done tours with other companies, a slight downfall with G was that we couldn't fit in all of the optional activities. For example, on the itinerary the tour ended at 9am on the Saturday, so I booked my flight for around that time. However, if we wanted to do the whale shark snorkelling (which I was really looking forward to) then we would of had to have done it when the tour had ended? Didn't seem right that it is offered as an activity if it can't actually be achieved within the perimeters of the tour dates. I appreciate that this was a YOLO tour, so on that basis the accommodation was all fine, although the 'nicer' rooms weren't necessarily dealt out evenly.
